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.
Arsene Wenger is also hoping that his team can handle the pressure better and also that Leicester will be getting nervy at the thought of playing us again. “What is important is to find the momentum back and that means that you win a few games,” Wenger said. “After, let’s not count too much on the weakness of Leicester because they have not shown too many.
“We want to find a consistency in our results until the end of the season, because we have big game after big game now.
“What I believe is that you do not have to be a super mathematician to analyse that it is a very important game, maybe not a decisive one for the Premier League but it is not far away from that.
“The pressure is on us as well, of course. I don’t deny that but I take that in a very positive way and as an opportunity to show how strong we are.
“I think the biggest pressure in our job is to play games without pressure. This is the kind of game we want – the kind of game we relish. When you play at Arsenal Football Club, that’s what you want.
“[Leicester] are still in a position where they think they have nothing to lose. But once you are top of the league, you can also think about losing what you have.
“That is where the nerves come in a little bit. I do not know how they will respond to that.”
The fact is that we also don’t know how our Arsenal team will respond to the pressure. Hopefully last week’s win will have upped their confidence a bit,but will it be enough to trump Leicester?
