Just a week ago, Arsenal looked to be hitting form with the demolition of Stoke giving them a third clean sheet in a row, but that has all gone straight down the pan with our embarrassing defeat in Zagreb, and our even more annoying defeat by a Chelsea team that has conceded 12 goals and were already six points behind us before the game started.
There could hardly be a worse time to visit our arch rivals Tottenham Hotspurs on Wednesday. The Spuds are now hitting a bit of form themselves and have not lost since their opening day 1-0 defeat to Manchester United. Their new signing Son has scored three goals in his last two games and they sit just one point behind us in the League table.
We know for a fact that Arsene Wenger will make big changes for this Capital One Cup game, whereas we also know Pochettino takes this competition seriously and went to the semi-finals last year before losing to the trophy winners Chelsea. Also as it is being played at White Hart Lane will give them an extra advantage. This game is not in any way an easy fixture for us…
Four days later we have the pleasure of going to the surprise team of the season so far at Leicester City, who are actually unbeaten in their last SIXTEEN games and are two points ahead of us in the League. They are also a team in form and it will not be easy winning that one either! It would be an absolute disaster for us to go into the Champions League game against Olympiakos with a run of four defeats behind us…..
