We are now at the time of the season when quality shows its true colours. Arsenal are just getting some form back and the teams that held top spots for so long are starting to feel the pressure.
Teams like Arsenal, Chelsea and Utd have been there so many times that they have the experience to deal with the run in. City and Spuds will be feeling the heat now and this will effect performances.
Whilst 3rd spot is not what Arsenal were aiming for at the beginning of the season, it is a realistic position to attain based on the points difference between 1st and 3rd, this doesn't mean we should be happy with it but it is an achievable target and is certainly better then 4th and 5th.
I see the season finishing like this
Man Utd Man City Arsenal Chelsea Spurs Newcastle Liverpool
