Whoever would have thought that Arsenal would be facing Leicester in a make-or-break game at this stage of the season? But this is the reality right now and in one weeks time every single player and fan must be urging our players to do their very best to get all three points and close the gap on our opponents at the top of the table.
Arsene Wenger managed to galvanise the team to handle the pressure yesterday against Bournemouth and he will have an even bigger job ahead of next weeks game. Le Prof is convinced that yesterday’s confidence booster and the Emirates crowd next week can only help towards beating Leicester.
“[Beating Bournemouth] is very good for the future as we now have a very big game at home against Leicester who are now the favourites for the Premier League,” Wenger said. “[A win] can maybe prepare you in a better condition for the next game.
“We have a week to prepare for that and I have to think about it. Leicester is a strong side but we are also a strong side. At home with our fans and support, we can do it.”
Every team, except Leicester it seems, has had blips this season, but our win yesterday has hopefully signalled the end of our one and it is now imperative that we go on a winning run if we are going to take the title. One big thing in our favour is that we absolutely destroyed Leicester at Filbert Street and I am sure that their players, as well as ours will remember that day, giving us the psychological advantage. Any with the home fans screaming their support for our boys will help intimidate them further.
So let’s leave our differences aside for a week and just give everything in support of our boys!
