With all the bad blood between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, and with the desire for Arsenal to show that last season’s awful string of results away to the Premier League big boys wasan aberration, there is a feeling that the Frenchman will send the Gunners out with the intent to attack the league leaders and go for all three points.
I really hope that the prof and his players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are bluffing, in an attempt to get Mourinho to set his Chelsea team up to play on the counter and expose our rash tactics. If that is the case then it could really work for us and we could even sneak a win as they push forward, but if Arsenal do what they are suggesting then it will play into Chelsea’s hands and the chances are we will get nothing but another hiding.
Let’s be realistic Gooners, a point away to Chelsea is always a decent result and with them in great form while we have not hit top form yet, combined with the fact that we are missing some key players through injury, a point tomorrow would be an even better result than usual.
And the way that results have gone elsewhere, a point would also see us go into the international break in the top four unless Man United or Tottenham can record thumping wins tomorrow against Everton and Southampton respectively. Surely it is time to be solid and compact and make life difficult for the home team. Then after the break we will have an almost full strength squad and can push on. What do you think Gooners?
