If Arsenal were going to contend for a 2014 2015 Premier League title, this past weekend was their golden opportunity. The Gunners faced off against division leaders Chelsea in a home fixture at their own Emirates Stadium. However, despite the home field advantage Arsenal couldn't get the edge on Chelsea, and the game ended 0-0 after a frantic hour and a half of play. The draw more or less ends the Gunners chances of winning the division this year, but still keeps them in the top three. Help the football club chase down their first runner-up finish in a decade with a new Puma Arsenal shirt from Soccer Box!

If you have been paying attention to the 2014 2015 Premier League, you already know that Chelsea have been the frontrunners this year. From the very first weeks of competitive play, the Blues have been at the top of the standings table, and it doesn't look like that position is going to change between now and the end of the season.
The wearers of the Puma Arsenal shirt were the squad with the best chances of changing this season's narrative, though. Coming into their Sunday home fixture against Chelsea, the Gunners had won eight games in a row and had climbed all the way into second place on the division standings table. They were still 10 points off the lead, but a victory on Sunday would have certainly put some pressure on the Blues.
Unfortunately, when the Gunners donned the Arsenal home jersey 2014 2015 for the April 26th game against Chelsea, they simply couldn't keep their impressive momentum going. In a game filled with penalty calls and wide shots, the Gunners failed to find the back of the net to keep their hopes of a Premier League title alive.
For their part, the Gunners did arguably outplay the Blues in Sunday's home match. In terms of possession, shots on target, and shots wide, Arsenal came out on top, according to statistics collected by Soccerway.com. But with Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois holding a clean sheet, those stats ultimately ended up being meaningless.
The State of the LeagueÂ
What does this all mean for the wearers of the Puma Arsenal shirt? Essentially, it means that the football club can no longer hope for anything other than a second place finish in this year's Premier League. For that placement, they will do battle with Manchester City, as both teams currently have 67 points in the standings.
The Blues, meanwhile, will seal their fourth-ever English top flight soccer title with just two more wins. Indeed, with victories against Leicester City and Crystal Palace on Wednesday and Sunday, respectively, Chelsea will officially be crowned the 2014 2015 Premier League champions.
Still, even second place would be an accomplishment for the Gunners. In every season since 2005, the team has landed in third or fourth, but hasn't contended much for higher placements. This year is their chance to break that trend and finally get back into the runner-up seat. You can help them do it by showing your support for the football team with a new Puma Arsenal home jersey 2014 2015 from Soccer Box!
