Well, it certainly seems like a case of Deja Vu For Arsenal, especially looking at last year’s table, in almost an identical copy of what’s happening this year (except that Chelsea are also in front) Arsenal just don’t have the steam to win the Premier League.

The fact is that Arsenal have an even bigger mountain to climb compared to last year, well, by one point, but comment below and tell us whether we have enlightened you guys and tell us what you think about this year’s title race.
Disclaimer: I’m not saying that Manchester United will definitely win the BPL this season, the title race has been excruciating close, from Chelsea’s apparently ‘unassailable’ lead early on to Arsenal’s short period at the top. It’s just going to be hard for Arsenal to catch up.
