Arsenal desperately need to get their confidence back and their Premier League campaign back on track, and they can’t afford to be patient any more as a defeat at Goodison Park will leave them in a very precarious position indeed. According to the bookie 888Sport, the two sides are very evenly matched with Everton being 2.65 to win, while Arsenal are slightly shorter at 2.60. The draw is a very generous 3.60 but I think the price for an Arsenal win is a much better bet.
Barcelona v Arsenal: A template for damage limitation By Twig
We normally have a couple of infographics before big games and this will be no exception, but usually we find that the Gunners stats are usually better than our opponents – even against Barcelona! But tomorrow’s game against Spurs is not looking as positive as usual, either for our midfielders comparison from FootballFanager, or for the Combined XI figures.
Arsenal are on their worst losing run for six years with back to back defeats against Barcelona, Man United and now Swansea, all in the space of eight miserable days. This is supposed to be the time of the season when Wenger gets all his injured players back and everyone is on form, and the team goes on a scintillating run to finish in the top four.
Anything is still possible for Arsenal by Sam P
Okay Arsenal yet again played against a makeshift team at the Emirates, it it is not the end of the world in this season of shifting tides and crazy results. Leicester had only drawn on Tuesday, Tottenham got beat by West Ham, Man City got slaughtered by Liverpool. Okay Man United managed to beat Watford by the odd goal but that was the only really expected bad result for Arsenal.
Why I am worried about Swansea by DN
Swansea are currently only three points above the relegation zone and it seems a bit strange after their excellent form of the last few seasons, but the fact is that right now they will be looking to put some daylight between themselves and the other contenders so will be expected to put up a fight this evening.
At least Arsenal fans should be going into today’s game against Man United with a bit more confidence than they had against Barcelona on Tuesday night. We may not have won at Old Trafford since Adebayor scored the only goal in 2006, but Louis van Gaal’s team is decimated by injuries and are dropping away from the Top Four like a stone.
The more I read about Arsenal’s big match against Man United tomorrow the more worried I get! And the latest news from the official Man United website is that they are expecting David De Gea and Chris Smalling to return for the game, and the Gunners are having enough problems scoring goals as it is….
