Why Arsenal should worry after Wigan cup win

The current football season has been excruciating at times for Arsenal fans and it is showing no signs of getting easier. Despite the excellent run of form recently, with six wins from the last eight Premier League games, the Gunners still have the threat of finishing outside the top four looming large.

With ten man Chelsea coming from behind to win yesterday at Aston Villa, it is now down to Tottenham and Arsenal to fight it out over the remaining Champions League place. There is plenty to worry about for Arsenal fans, as a Spurs win at Stoke City today will leave us needing to beat Wigan at the Emirates on Tuesday and they will be flying high after their shock victory over Manchester City yesterday.

Do Arsenal NEED to win the League Cup to boost confidence?

The following question was asked of Arsene Wenger following the 3-3 draw at home to Fulham. “Arsene, why do Arsenal seem so fragile this season?”

Wenger obviously not liking this question replied that he didn’t share that opinion, but then added that on the day Arsenal were defensively fragile.

On Tuesday Arsenal led their Champions League game at Schalke by two goals, only to allow the Germans to regain the initiative with a goal right on half time. Schalke equalized in the second half, with Arsenal having to thank Mannone for preventing a worse scoreline. Things were not much better at the weekend with Arsenal once again squandering a two goal lead, this time against a Fulham team which had failed to win on 20 previous visits to north London.
