Arsenal fans will obviously be hoping that all six of the clubs currently sitting above the Gunners in the Premier League table drop points this weekend, unlikely as it may be. At least one of them will, though, because Antonio Conte takes his Chelsea team to high flying Man City and that brings up an interesting dilemma for Arsenal fans.
Most of us would probably prefer the two big title rivals to draw and claim just a point each, which would let Arsenal gain ground on both, assuming we win our own game at home to Brighton of course. But if one was to win, which do you think would be better from our point of view?
I really think it hinges on whether you believe Arsenal have any chance of lifting the Premier League trophy next May or not. If not then we may as well root for a Man City win and let them increase their lead at the top. They are looking the most likely at the moment, whereas Chelsea have stuttered a bit and defeat would mean we could move level on points and maybe even above them on goal difference.
After our slow start that would be quite something and would boost our top four hopes considerably, but it would also get Arsenal fans feeling more optimistic about the title itself. If Chelsea were to win it would knock the rampant City off their momentum and give us hope that Guardiola’s men are not going to run away with it.
That is why a draw would be great for the Gunners. If not, who would you like to win?
