Arsenal aren’t the only big club behind Leicester

If I had fallen from another planet and was watching the premier league I would have been puzzled by the rhetoric directed mainly at Arsenal for the weird season that has Leicester and Spurs jostling for the premier league title while the other top clubs get some sort of free pass.
Arsenal seem to be the only club guilty of performing badly in a season where City who spent millions on Otamendi, Sterling and De bruyne risk playing in Europa next year. If you ask me I think Pellegrini is setting Pep up to play in Europa. Manchester united have spent close to 300 million pounds since LVG arrived and I haven’t factored in how much Moyes spent in his short stint there and they have won zilch in that time as in absolutely nothing. Chelsea the last time I checked, hiddink was happy he had managed to steer the team away from relegation, some sort of achievement I would think. Reading through social media and the media in general one would think there was a different league table which the other clubs are competing in with the disparity with which Arsenal are criticised so much for being behind Leicester in the league table.
I am not immune to the fact that Arsenal seemed to have entered their choking period in the season and passed with flying colours but they seem to be the only ones under the spotlight for being behind Leicester when resources are being compared.

Have Arsenal missed a chance to romp to the title this year oh yes they have but if we all take a look at the whole picture, resources invested versus where respective clubs are standing the other clubs should be equally under the spotlight. Arsenal as we know are the perennial underachievers.
