So Arsenal have 11 matches left on their schedule this season. That number will increase if they get past Slavia Praha in the next round of the Europa League. But this strange, difficult, COVID-affected season is coming to a close.

There’s still a good bit to be determined and extremely high stakes for the Gunners. As I’m sure you know, the team is on the outside looking up at the European places in the Premier League table. They’re six points out of 6th, which should be good enough to qualify for the Europa League next season. The problem is the congestion — there are so many teams in position to compete for 5th and 6th in the run-in that being towards the bottom of the pack is a tough spot. Of course, winning the Europa League would qualify Arsenal directly for the Champions League next season, which would be an absolutely massive accomplishment.

So what are you most looking forward to in the closing month and a half of the season? Will you be monitoring any particular players’ performances? Is there a specific match you’re anticipating? Is it “win the Europa or bust” in terms of determining whether this was a successful season for the club?
