Campbell: Arsenal's home fixtures hold key to title push

Former Gunners striker says club's form at Emirates over the next month will determine if they can stay top

Kevin Campbell knows what it takes to win the league title with Arsenal, having been part of the squad that finished top in 1990/91, and he believes the Gunners' home form over the next month will be crucial.

Arsenal showed their dominance at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, beating struggling Everton 4-0, and three of their next four Premier League fixtures are also at home against bottom-half teams.

"You look at the next four or five games - this [Everton] was one of them - and you say to yourself, 'Arsenal have a really big chance,' " says Campbell.

"Four of those five games are at the Emirates, so you've really got to fancy them to get maximum points if they can and put a lot on pressure on Manchester City."

After that run of four matches, Arsenal will have just nine fixtures left in the title race.

"Once you get down to 10 games or single digits, that's when the pressure's on," says Campbell. "It kind of feels like everything counts double, so getting there with maximum points [is important].

"I think the team do have enough quality, they do have that tenacity. The big question is, are they a little bit too young? It's the second-youngest team in the league.

"You're going against a juggernaut that's Man City. We all know that Man City could push on. They've got the quality players to go on a run."
