Arsenal are well capable of beating any side on their day; the problem lies elsewhere. The squad has been reduced to bare bones with injuries to several key players.
It has become a situation where Wenger may struggle to pick his best starting XI for the next few games. Already he was without the likes of perennial absentees like Jack Wilshere, Thomas Rosicky and Theo Walcott, what has gone against them is the fresh injury blows to Francis Coquelin, Alexis Sanchez and Santi Cazorla. That’s your steel and creativity being robbed through unforeseen circumstances. How will Arsenal cope against this pressure?
In theory, Sunderland should be an easy three pointer for Arsenal, but they are up against a team set up by Sam Allardyce, who has troubled Arsenal in the past. Also, the Black Cats are showing signs of improvement, as they won their back to back games to move out of the relegation zone.
Away to Villa Park is another fixture Arsenal should win easily. But, the fixture comes right after the trip to Olympiakos, where Arsenal could be knocked out of the Champions League.
This is followed by the crunch Premier League clash with Manchester City, where the Gunners need to win to stay alive in the title race.
At least Arsenal should pick up 12-13 points from 15, but with injuries troubling them, they might drop more points during the busy month of December.
