Since Arsenal lost on the opening day of the season in a 3-1 defeat to Aston Villa, many pundits stated the belief that Arsene Wenger's men could not win the league.
However, a lot has changed since then. Arsenal went on a superb run which unfortunately ended with a defeat at Old Trafford. Not only did The Gunners go on an unbeaten run, they survived the group of death in the Champions League and qualified in second place. Despite all this, week in week out the pundits are still saying Arsenal will not win the Premier League.
What do Arsenal have to do to change their minds? Coming into the West Ham United game on Boxing Day, Arsenal hadn't won in three games after drawing with Everton, losing to Manchester City and drew against Chelsea at Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal went 1-0 down against West Ham and if the Hammers had taken their chances just after they scored you could of said another defeat for Arsenal. However, Arsenal showed great determination to come back and win comfortably. Yet the pundits still suggest Arsenal were not strong enough or have the strength in depth to win the league.
Next test for The Gunners was away to in-form Newcastle United. A tough test as the Magpies took points of both Manchester United and Chelsea at home. The team news came in and this tough test became an even bigger test as both Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil, arguably Arsenals best two players so far this season, were left out of the squad. This game showed Arsenal's strength and character as they came out 1-0 winners.
Arsenal are answering all the questions they are being faced with, so has this performance changed the mind of many pundits out there who said Arsenal couldn't win the league?
