    Can Arsenal honestly blame the manager for their recent performances Surely the over paid players have to accept a big part of the blame

    The Gunners finished 5th last season with 75pts. Two seasons ago when Leicester ripped apart the usual form of the Top Four, Arsenal finished 2nd with 71pts. With ten matches left to go today, they are 6th with 45pts.

    Teams do suffer times of wobbling. Chelsea finished 10th 2 seasons ago, but returned to win last season after poaching the Leicester magician Kanté. At the moment, Chelsea are 5th with 53pts, 2pts behind 4th-placed Spurs.

    Arsenal and Monsieur Arsene Wenger have enjoyed an unbroken stability which is the envy of other clubs and managers. Clubs which have been replacing managers so frequently are not necessarily enjoying a better success than the Gunners. West Brom fans were fed-up with Tony Pulis's defensive style of setting up the team. Now they are in the relegation spiral and will likely be sucked under, while Pulis is masterminding the return of his new Championship club Middlesbrough to the Premier League.
