Arsenal are back in the middle of the title race after a dodgy January. The Gunners went four games without a win prior to last week’s win at Bournemouth.

The confidence of the squad was visibly rocked by a late equaliser conceded at Liverpool and a defeat against Chelsea, but nothing could boost them more than the way we won on Sunday afternoon.

Coming off the bench to score the winner, Danny Welbeck was the hero in the 95th minute, and Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger expects the nature of the win to drive his time forward.

“It will strengthen our belief that we are in the fight. We had a bit of a dodgy spell, Liverpool 3-3, Stoke 0-0, lost to Chelsea, 0-0 at home with Southampton,” said the manager.

“Now after that we won two games and we are still mathematically in the fight, that will strengthen our belief of course.”

It most certainly will, and the belief of the fans. The Emirates was a wall of noise at full time, and with fans believing in the title race once again we can help push the team on in the next few weeks.

A goal down with 20 minutes or so remaining, Arsenal were in trouble. A loss would’ve left us eight points behind the Foxes, a win changes everything.

“A loss today would have been massive, yes. Even after that you get all the negative vibes, the belief goes down, would have been much more difficult. We would not have given up, but eight points is three games to come back. We would need to win three , they would need to lose three.”

With just two points separating Arsenal and Leicester now, it is well and truly on.
