Arsenal have turned their season around

Earlier this year it looked really bad for Arsenal as they started the Premier League season losing four of their first seven matches. Things don’t look nearly as grim now as Arsenal have turned things around, winning four straight league games. The Gunners are also looking strong in the Champions League and they have reached the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup.

Not many people thought that Arsenal had a chance to win anything after they were humiliated early in the season 8-2 at Manchester United. Manager Arsene Wenger was under fire and many people were calling for him to be sacked. In the past few weeks the team has turned things around and things are actually looking up for Wenger and Arsenal. They are still well behind in the Premier League race but now they are at least in the top half of the table and within striking distance of fourth place Chelsea. Arsenal leads their Champions League group with two wins and two draws in their first four matches and they will be playing at home against Manchester City in the Carling Cup.

Wenger was really getting a lot of heat early in the season but he kept his cool and his team followed his lead. Now the team are in a position to make this season worthwhile. They visit Norwich City on Saturday in football betting action in the Premier League. Wenger said the team is more disciplined than they were early in the season and that has made the difference. “I would say we are a bit more controlled and less cavalier. We are less adventurous when the job is done, I must say,” Wenger said, “You can feel that there is some reserve there if needed. In the second half against West Brom we just kept it serious without going overboard. Overall I would say it is a more mature attitude.”

Arsenal at Norwich on Saturday

The Gunners will visit Norwich City on Saturday as they look to make it five in a row in the Premier League.

“We won’t be taking anything for granted, but hopefully we can go there and get a good result.” defender Carl Jenkinson said. “Norwich are doing well and from what I’ve seen their home form has been good as well. They are obviously a good side so no one will be going there thinking it will be anything other than a difficult game.” Jenkinson added.
