Hey Arsenal are still second in EPL by SP
You would think that the Emirates had fallen down around our ears with all the negativity from Arsenal fans. Let’s look at this sensibly shall we?
So we have lost two first team players for a few weeks, so it is no big deal lads. THe only reason we will miss THeo Walcott is if Olivier Giroud is out of form, and he is scoring for fun lately isn’t he? And, let’s be brutally honest, The Ox has hardly set the game on fire since he replaced Aaron Ramsey. In my opinion, I would have been happy for him to be replaced by Campbell, or Flamini or whoever this weekend as he is totally out of confidence and form.
Please remember that all our seriously talented players were not involved on Tuesday, in fact most of them were at home with their feet up watching the game on the telly, having a well earned rest after their excellent efforts over the last fortnight.
So let’s look at the team we are likely to play against Swansea…
Sanchez Ozil Campbell
Monreal Koscielny Mertesacker Bellerin
Other than (possibly) Campbell replacing Ramsey, I would say that is the strongest team we could possibly play even if everyone was fit. And it is not like they can’t play three games in nine days, of course they can they are professionals!
Then we have the international break, and after that we should have Ramsey, Walcott and The Ox all back and ready to play. Hopefully all three will be excused from international duty so will be fresh and ready. As long as we don’t get any more injuries in the next few weeks, we will be fine. Stop being worry-warts!
