#Arsenal settled for a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge to record a two-successive rout in the ##english premier league (EPL). The February 4 match saw Chelsea maintain the top position with 59 points, 9 points ahead of the second placed Tottenham Hotspurs. Arsenal was under pressure for almost 90 minutes. Their defense seemed to have many holes, giving Chelsea a chance to tear them apart. Chelsea played a revenge game after they were thrashed 3-0 by Arsenal in their first match.

Is Wenger the stumbling block?

Arsenal has not won the Premier League since 2004 and it is clear that this history will repeat itself. Wenger is probably not leading Arsenal anywhere.

Even though Wenger has helped his club bag a number of trophies, he seems unable to fix the problem of too many sub-standard players in his club. He just doesn't have the ability to run the Premier League marathon any more. As a result, his team doesn’t, either.

Arsenal is destined to lose again

#Arsenal is more likely to lose in their match against #hull city on Saturday, the 11th. The unhealed wound will drive Arsenal toward the losing end even as they eye the EPL title. Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger’s decision to keep the stars on the bench will not only cost them but also add more years to their barrenness. Furthermore, Hector Bellerin, Santi Carzola, Aaron Ramsey and Lucas Perez are currently nursing injuries. This will place #Hull City in a better position. As it stands, Arsenal lacks a strong defense, and the old 4-man defense formation is too outdated for Arsenal to win.

Arsenal need to up their game

To win the Premier League again, something has to change. Spending a big amount to sign top players or playing a less open style of football will mean nothing. It will only lead to the wasted resources. Therefore, as this season diminishes, Arsenal needs to rethink their strategy moving forward. A solid place to start would be to employ the 5-3-2 formation in order to tighten up their defense, and move forward from that starting point.
