Arsenal’s devastating defeat to Tottenham yesterday may have made the cancellation of St Totteringham’s Day official, but the two draws by the Manchester sides mean that we are far from out of the race for the Champions League places.
We are now a maximum of six points behind Liverpool, Man City and Man United with a game in hand, so a win against Jose Mourinho’s side next Sunday will put us right back in the chase. Danny Welbeck is adamant that Arsenal can bounce back from yesterday’s disappointment. “We’re professional and we need to fight right until the end,” he said.
“As a team, get together, analyse the game and then move on from this.
“It’s very difficult to take for the club, for all the players, the fans.
“It’s not a nice one to lose and we want to make it right next week.”
It may look like a tough call to take all three points against a Man United team that is unbeaten in 25 League fixtures, but as we know with Arsenal, anything is possible.
Mourinho has already said he is going to prioritise the Europa League, and with the Arsenal game sandwiched between the two semi-finals against Celta Vigo, we could have a very good chance of facing a weakened United side.
Never give up!
