Chelsea travel to Anfield tomorrow to take on Liverpool in the Premier League, and most Arsenal fans will be hoping to see plenty of injuries, but which result is most favourable for us?
Our boys sit tied on points with the Merseyside club, will trailing the Blues by only three points, and a win for the home team could potentially leave us all level, but looking at the bigger picture, I’m not sure what we should be rooting for.
Personally I don’t rate Liverpool’s chances of challenging for the top two spots, while last season’s Premier League champions keep pùtting in some serious displays, and Antonio Conte got his side into top gear at this stage of the competition last term, and should be feared in the race for the title.
With the above beliefs, you have to analyze our own goals for the campaign before deciding on what we believe would be best for the club.
First and foremost a return to the Champions League has to be prioritised, which can only be done with a top four finish or by winning the Europa League competition (as Manchester United did last year), but our current form, ignoring he midweek loss for our B side, I wouldn’t rule us out pushing on to challenging for second place in the table, possibly even first once Manchester City finally start to show chinks in their armour.
Which result do you want to see see from the big match? Should we be aiming for the top of the table or concentrating on a top four finish? Do Liverpool have to be taken seriously?
