Come On Arsenal…Let’s Make It Six In A Row!
Since the setback at Old Trafford in mid December, we have gone five Premiership games undefeated. Last week’s 3-0 win at West Ham was a commanding as the ones we saw earlier in the season. Whether that was really due to our superiority or West Ham’s utter surrender is another matter. What’s important is that we seem to have gotten our confidence back and in Nasri, Van Persie and Fabregas, we have three of the in-forms players in the league.
Although we have a rather important match coming up in mid week, I am sure Arsene will put out his best side for the match at the Emirates. This means we will be seeing the like of the triumvirate above, with Wilshere, Walcott and Clichy back after being rested for the game against Leeds. In his press conference, Arsene mentioned that Chamakh and Denilson are carrying knocks from the Leeds game and will probably not make it to the subs bench.
Today’s match is an important home match which we must win and win comprehensively. This is because we start a sequence of 4 home matches, in League and Cup competitions. We have been beaten 3 times already this season at home so we need to build the momentum for the coming matches at the Emirates with a good solid win this afternoon.
More important a win will give the team the right mindset to tackle the small issue of the Carling Cup semi-final where we trail Ipswich by 1-0. A loss or draw will send shivers down the spine of any Arsenal supporter hoping to see the team end its title drought with the League Cup and put a dent in team morale ahead of that match.
