Partly because of Wigan's rather good win over Man City but mostly because it's all gone rather wrong for the Arsenal.
Two months ago we were top of the league, motoring in the FA Cup and doing alright in the Champions League.
Then Arsenal went to Anfield and were demolished by a raging Red tidal wave...though let's not dwell on that hey?
Put simply Arsenal have to win tomorrow and probably the final to save this season. Failure and being beaten to fourth is too much to contemplate!
The record away against the top five this season is simply horrific and what's even more worrying is teams seem to know how to set up against Arsenal now.
Do you think Uwe Rosler's side will just 'have a go' or be set up to blunt Arsenal and then hurt them? (It's the second one...)
Wigan have nothing to lose and that makes them dangerous, remember Birmingham City???
Of course I think we will win, however should there be one more catastrophe round the corner then tomorrow could see the end of an era.
I have no doubt Arsene Wenger is stalling on the contract to see how the rest of the season goes.
Defeat tomorrow may just make his mind up for him....
