drew 0-0 v. Chelsea in the EFL Cup semi-finals first leg, on Sunday
their FA Cup dream stopped in the 3rd round
They are top six in the Premier League and of course in reach of a
Champions League qualification spot, but still a team being
described a few years back as the only contender for the title
alongside Manchester United.
If Wenger manages to get tings right in the return match at home to
Chelsea in the EFL Cup, he could get his hands on that trophy,
something he has not managed before. They are also in for a big
chance to reach the final of the Europa League facing Ostersund in
the next round.
Arsene Wenger composed one of the best teams football have seen,
during the days of Vieira, Henry and Bergkamp, really fantastic
football to watch and also being able to win major trophies and
reach the top cup finals.
Wenger still have a number of
quality players in his squad. Ozil, Sanchez and Koscielny are among

Cazorla and Mathieu Debuchy are all coming to an age that makes them
uncertain long term, and they are probably sooner or later on the
Few believe that the two regulars Cech and Mertesacker no longer
have the quality needed to be among the top teams. Wenger is in for
a real challenge trying to build a new squad of quality that can
compete, as Arsenal should, among the best clubs in Europe.
The next game coming up is the away clash with Bournemouth on Sunday
in the Premier League. Not an easy task, but should be possible to
win and pick up three points. There are
