The Gunners have drawn each of their last three matches in all competitions.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted that his side have lost some winning momentum following their 2-2 draw with Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League, The Times reports.

The Gunners made a promising start to the season but have gone without a win in each of their last three games so far.

It's not all bad news as they are into the last-16 of the Champions League, though it's likely they will qualify in second place, and three points off the pace in the title, currently sitting in fourth position. 

Wenger is quoted in The Times saying: “We have not lost, but we have lost a winning momentum, yes, a little bit.

“I say ‘stuttering’ and it comes back at me. Sometimes you go through spells when you win a bit less."

Some will put it down to being another bad November for Arsenal. However, on the face of things, a draw away to Manchester United isn't such a bad result, and while they would have liked to have beaten Tottenham at home, it's imperative to get away from those kinds of games without a defeat.

But now this run of tricky looking games is out of the way, they should really be getting some of that 'winning momentum' back.

They face a run of games up until they face Manchester City prior to Christmas which should see them string some wins together. They face Bournemouth at home this Sunday - while Eddie Howe's side have their plus points they are side that has blown hot and cold this season. Following that is an EFL Cup quarter-final tie at home to Southampton where both sides are likely to make changes, which probably makes that particular game hard to predict.

Following Southampton they have a run of games against West Ham United, Basel, Stoke City and Everton. Basel is more or less a dead rubber, unless Ludogorets get a result against PSG. But in the league they are facing sides that have had their fair share of struggles this season. West Ham are hovering above the drop zone, Stoke have shown signs of form but have shown their deficiencies while Everton have struggled following an initial positive start to the season.

It's a good opportunity for Arsenal to keep their domestic campaign firmly on track with a decent points haul, and possible progression to the semi-finals of a cup competition.
