Arsenal v Citeh: this will be tougher than we expect

In Arsenal FC, Premier League on April 4, 2009 by Highbury N5 Editor Tagged: ,

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. I’m proud to announce that FOOTBALL IS BACK!

There have been quite a few people saying that due to our form before the international break and Man City’s dismal away form in the league, the three points are Arsenal’s before the game has even begun. Personally, I feel that this will be one hell of a tight game made even more difficult with the loss of van Persie, Nasri and Eduardo. They would probably have played 90 minutes each had they been fit enough.

This game is not about avenging the tonking we got earlier in the season, its about getting another three points and getting further dug into the top four away from the Thursday night football threat. Moreover, we have to keep this fantastic run going because the mindset of the players at the moment is one of belief and hunger…they want trophies…they think they are capable of winning them.

We can all remember that horrible, horrible result we experienced at the city of Manchester stadium and when you saw that result I put money on you remembering exactly where you were and what you thought. Today it will not happen again. Saying that we still have to be careful.

We still have to keep an eye on Villa because three point is nothing, neither is five points. Six points however is a different story, thats two defeats in a row and i think if we can open the gap that far we will be just one or two more wins from securing a spot in the top four. The lads have to be composed, patient and for once, clinical. They have a keeper between the sticks that is probably the best in the league at the moment and he will take some beating.

We are also welcoming back our club captain and heartbeat. The one and only Cesc Fabregas.

I am unsure as to whether he will start today, I have heard murmurings that he will come off the bench and Denilson/Song will be the midfield partnership, but considering the lack of Nasri and the fact we are playing on a Saturday weights in Cesc’s favour. I hope he starts.

I predict a 3-2 victory, a very tight one. Toure and Gallas looked shaky last time out and Gallas might just be a little tired after playing Saturday and Wednesday night, he is well into his thirties now so I hope that does not affect him that much.

To be honest, I’d be happy with a good ‘ol 1-0. Three points, Cesc’s return and hopefully the injuries will be healing.

Come on Arsenal!

til tomorrow.

  1. it will be tough, but I can’t see City scoring two. Hughes team always “make it tough” for Arsenal and “stop Arsenal from playing.” That is the only way Hughesy thinks he can beat our boys.

  2. a good win for us coz players seem to drop form after d intrnatnal breaks. Up Arsenal.

  3. good solid win – it was good stuff although i havnt seen all the match yet.

    Btw – liken the new look of the site, looks very cool!! Keep up the good work!

  4. Catch the highlights above mate!

    And thanks 🙂
