their second team just got beaten by Blackburn. That will be the team that plays us i would imagine. They will either turn up and gives us a hiding or they will be as crap as they were against Blackburn. Could go either way, but yes, they should have some tired legs, and hopefully a couple of niggly injuries.
well now you have said that, we are screwed. They will get hammered by Bayern, and then come out all guns blazing and whoop us 25-0. with Podolski getting 24 of the goals, and Mertersacker the other.
The Arsenal defence isn't the best to face Benteke on form. I think Benteke, Weimann and N'zogbia can cause them serious problems. Although an Arsenal attack on form can cause us serious problems. An interesting match!
Agree except that our defence is getting better now that Vlaar is back and up and running. Expect Benteke and Weimann t cause their defence more problems than they cause us.
Narrow win or at worst a draw
I agree that our defence is improving and that our attack is effective if we give them decent possession. I think this battle will be won or lost in midfield however, and unfortunately, if there is one thing that Arsenal do well, its midfield. I would be surprised if they don't overload our defence more than once, and despite the green shoots of recovery I think its asking a lot of Delph and Westwood to boss this one, or even get close. If we can hang on in there and get something on the break we have a chance of coming away with something. I'd love 3 points but I just can't see it. Someone once said 'its a funny old game' though, so who knows?
i think Gabby will score a goal.
