Arsenal’s recent Premier League results have been disappointing to say the least as Arsene Wenger’s players have had to settle with draws against Southampton, Liverpool and Stoke City while suffering a defeat against Chelsea in their league matches of January.
Out of these 4 matches, Arsenal had the possibility of collecting a total of 12 points but only gathered 3 points which is a huge amount of points that were dropped and allowed Leicester City on being able to secure the top spot of the English League.
Arsene Wenger is well aware that his team has recently been faltering but the Frenchman is confident that they will be able to recover and get back on to winning ways as the experienced manager said: “It’s true that we’ve had a stuttering start in 2016. Our January was bad, starting from the last minute at Liverpool, and then at Stoke. Where we especially have a big deficit is in our two home games. We have to catch that back and we have a difficult program, especially away from home. We need to respond quickly away from home now.”
Even with this significant drop of points, Arsenal are still contending for the Premier League title and have a realistic chance of becoming the new champions of England but they will have to avoid dropping any further points as this allows Leicester City, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur on getting a spot ahead of Arsene Wenger’s team.

One of the biggest criticisms that the French manager received during the January transfer window is his lack of signing any forwards and this was what the supporters of the Premier League club were expecting to see. Olivier Giroud has turned into the main source of goals for Arsenal but whenever the Frenchman is injured or simply unavailable to play, this is a huge loss for Arsenal, this is why Arsenal was expected to sign a high-profile forward but at the end of it all, the only signing of Arsene Wenger in the winter transfer window was the defensive midfielder Mohamed Elneny.
Arsenal has managed to recover from their underwhelming results by claiming a 2-0 triumph over Bournemouth and Wenger is hoping his team can continue winning more matches on a consistent basis until the end of the season.
