Are Arsenal title contenders after the crunch draw with City?

Yesterday’s early kick off saw a vicious and exciting encounter between two England heavy weights. The crunchy game surely sent swings of momentum across the football world.

So, are Arsenal genuine contenders? In all fairness, a draw seemed a fair result. However, Wenger will be furious in the manner in which Arsenal conceded the equalizer. They allowed the champions back in the game and could have won it in the end. Fragility? Perhaps not (yes).

For Arsenal, a win would have been more welcome given their horrible statistics against teams who have finished in the top four. A win would improve their confidence as well as send a statement to other title rivals.

Genuine title contenders have to get results on the big occasions. For Arsenal particularly, they have a lot to prove on those occasions. They have to harden that soft underbelly that strong teams always exploit.
