Arsenal: A Game-By-Game Guide To How the Club Can Still Win the EPL

Yeah, you read that right.

While much has been made lately of the Gunners ebbing EPL title credentials, many seem to be overlooking an important fact: Arsenal is still very much alive in the hunt for the crown.

In fact, it's not as much of a longshot as you may think. While, granted, there has been little that indicates a run of form such as would be required to overtake Manchester United could be in the offing, that doesn't mean things it couldn't happen.

Sure, Sir Alex's men are in the driver's seat; if things remain status quo, Rooney and company will be hoisting the hardware at the end of the year. But as I am fond of saying, that's why they play the games.

Nothing is written in stone at present.

If the things line up the right way, if the moon is in the seventh house and all of that, it is entirely within the realm of possibility that the silverware deficiency at the Emirates may well end this May.

However, this is all predicated upon Manchester United leaving some points on the table, and Arsenal taking care of business when the two sides meet in North London on May 1, for what well may be the definitive Premier League fixture this season.

One way or the other, come the first of the month, Wenger and company will either be celebrating May Day with renewed hope in the title race, or yelling mayday as their ship sinks into the frigid waters of failure.

In any case, here is a week-by-week road map of what needs to happen in order for the Gunners to pull of what would surely be one of the most famous league titles in the club's illustrious history.

It should be noted that I'm not stating this will happen, or that it's particularly likely, merely that it could happen. Without the intervention of any deities, alchemy or voodoo.

So here it is: Arsenal's blueprint to brilliance.
