There is no doubt that today’s away game against 8th-placed West Brom is a must-win for Arsenal, after finding ourselves 5 points below 4th-placed Liverpool in the table, but who will Wenger choose as his best XI for such an important match.
Arsenal are on one of their worst runs of form for many years, with 5 defeats out of their last 8 games, and the only wins have come against low-ranking teams in Lincoln, Sutton and Hull, so Arsene Wenger will be desperate to start picking up points again to try and keep pace in the race for the Top Four.
Arsenal travel to the Hawthorns tomorrow to take on West Bromwich Albion at this crucial time in the season.
Our side have fallen to five points behind Liverpool who currently occupy the fourth and final Champions League place, but the Reds have played twice more than us, although this still adds pressure to the places.
As we could all have guessed at the beginning of the season, Santi Cazorla has hardly kicked a ball for the Arsenal first team, and ever since his injury the Gunners have struggled to find a suitable replacement in the attacking mid position.
Arsenal face Lincoln City this evening as they look to cement their place in the semi-final of the FA Cup.
The Gunners got the most favourable draw of the competition or the second consecutive round, having beaten fellow non-league side Sutton in the previous round, but despite our severe dominance in ability, this looks like a potential banana skin at present.
All we ask by Twig
It has been an exhilarating season for Arsenal hasn’t it? Exhilarating in a negative way I mean. We began the season as one of the top favourites to clinch the 2016/17 title, but presently we’re out of the top four with only about 10 games to play. Shock defeat against Watford; gutless losses against Chelsea, Liverpool and Bayern Munich have turned Arsenal into a joke team. Michael Owen claims Arsenal are the most “consistent” team in the league. Again, consistent in the negative sense.
Well everybody can usually easily predict which Arsenal team that Arsene Wenger will pick every week, but today he has shocked us all by leaving out Alexis Sanchez, and reinstating Olivier Giroud as centre-forward.
Klopp or Wenger, who wants it most? By SK
Jurgen Klopp and Arsene Wenger may be coaches of two top clubs but at the moment, both of them can be said to be under pressure and this Saturday, one of them will be looking to ease up the pressure on him! Is it going to be Klopp or is it going to be Wenger? Who wants it the most?
