Arsenal are set to face arguably their biggest game of the season at the Etihad this weekend, and it is not just for us to finish above Man City and clinch the usual Champions League quaklification, but also to stave off Tottenham finishing above us for the first time in Arsene Wenger’s reign at the Emirates.
Man City have got to get over their massive midweek disappointment but Arsenal are just as focused on catching Spurs: “For us it’s important to finish third, or even second,” Hector Bellerin told Sky Sports.
“Obviously, as a team we want to finish as high as we can, and in a good moment to be ready for next season. We’ve got to start with these three points at the Etihad and the team is really focused on that.”
“As an Arsenal player there is always that motivation [to beat Tottenham],”
City are not in a good place right now. They were humbled 4-2 by Southampton last week, and after they were meekly beaten by Gareth Bales goal for Madrid, Paul Meron thinks that Arsenal should have little problem on Sunday.He said: “If there’s ever a chance for Arsenal to win at the Etihad again, this is the game.
“If they don’t win this game, you’d have to ask serious questions. Man City are there for the taking, all day long.”
So over to you Wenger and the boys. Let’s do this!
