Arsenal fans, if they are anything like me, will still be wondering why Arsene Wenger chose to start with Mathieu Flamini as the holding midfielder against AFC Bournemouth instead of the fit again Francis Coquelin. I can only assume that it was an issue about the younger Frenchman’s match fitness even though Coquelin was on the bench and did come on for the final 25 minutes.
While every Arsenal fan will be urging the players to give absolutely everything for a victory over table topping Leicester City tomorrow, our manager is often a bit more pragmatic than that and whereas we used to sometimes get caught out when throwing players forward, Arsene Wenger will now sometimes make sure of the point rather than risking all for the win.
The Arsenal board and manager show they don’t care about the fans once more by KM
Well, well, Arsene you never fail to disappoint do you? In the press conference the Arsenal boss was asked about the ridiculous high prices fans pay to go to football matches (especially Arsenal with the highest ticket prices in the world).
There is no doubt that this is the biggest game of the season so far for both Arsenal and Leicester, and both sides will be feeling the pressure. I believe that Arsenal have the advantage though because as well as playing at the Emirates, the Leicester players will remember how we destroyed their unbeaten run earlier this season.
Wenger wants domination over Leicester by Sam P
This is one game I just cannot wait to see when Arsenal take on Leicester tomorrow lunchtime. We totally dominated them in the reverse fixture when we stopped their unbeaten run with a massive 5-2 victory and we remain the only team to have destroyed the Foxes this season. But can we do it again?
