Since Arsenal got over the slow start to the season and the injury crisis, we have had our mojo back and have blown most teams away. The odd bad result has proved to be just a blip which the Gunners have quickly bounced back from and the same thing will happen after the disappointing loss to Swansea, according to the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere.
Whether the midfielder starts the game at Old Trafford on Sunday remains to be seen, but Wilshere has de4clared in a Daily Mail report that he is confident that Arsenal will come away with a result, just as we did in the FA cup quarter-final in March.
Not only did that cup win end a long wait for a win against our old rivals, it gave the players another big reason to believe that we can stand up to any team, home or way. And when you add the fact that the Gunners only need a point while United must win and are hardly in great form themselves, you can see why Jack is feeling bullish ahead of the trip north.
He said, “We’ve been there in the FA Cup this season and won, so we know what it takes.
“Our confidence will be high going there, but we’ve got to perform.
“It’s no good just going there thinking that we can beat them again because we’ve beaten them before. We’ve got to put in a performance, work hard and earn the right to win.”
The fact is that Louis van Gaal will have to be positive and go for the win and that should play right into Arsenal hands. The last game we lost was that one against Monaco, also down to poor finishing and being too gung ho but we put that straight behind us and won the next nine in a row.
So listen to Jack, Gooners, and don’t panic!
