I think it is safe to say that most Arsenal fans, if asked before the start of the Premier League weekend of matches what result they would like to see from the top of the table clash earlier, would have said that a draw between Man City and Leicester City at the Etihad was the ideal result for the Gunners and our hopes of securing the title at the end of the season.
Even if the latest Arsenal transfer rumours are true, and Arsenal are the club in pole position to secure the transfer of the Real Madrid aand Spain international star Isco in the summer, there would still be a few things that could stop the stuning transfer to north London going ahead.
Arsenal are going through a mini goal drought at the moment having gone three games without a goal from anywhere. There has been much criticism of our strikers for being so wayward, but Arsene Wenger is trying to deflect criticism from his front men by declaring that there are many factors involved, and one of them is because we are missing Santi Cazorla from our midfield. “Look, it’s not definite,” Le Prof said.
It is not just the Arsenal centre forward Olivier Giroud that is responsible for putting the ball in the back of the net for the Gunners, of course, and the stats show you that the France international is actually doing his job very well this season when it comes to converting chances.
Having not kicked a ball in anger for Arsenal since we were held to a no score draw by Chelsea at the end of April as they cruised to the Premier League title last season, Danny Welbeck is understandably being treated with kid gloves by Arsene Wenger and the medical staff, but the England international forward is getting very close to being able to play for us again.
