Just as the vultures of doubt in the football media were beginning to circle around Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal team, as they are always ready and willing to do at the least sign of weakness, the Gunners go and produce a fine and thrilling performance with three very good goals.
Wenger’s history against Mourinho by RC
On Sunday Chelsea travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal. It will be the thirteenth occasion that managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho have met. The previous twelve have seen either a Mourinho win or a draw with Wenger still yet to experience victory over the Portugese manager.
I really hope that Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players do not spend this week preparing for the top of the table clash with Chelsea assuming that Chelsea will come to the Emirates stadium ripe for the plucking because of the striker crisis currently affecting the Blues, because that way lies disaster.
Titi must return to the Emirates By Twig
I am not a Chelsea fan, but seeing Drogba in his second spell still doing the business for Chelsea gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. It was like watching a repeat of history. Although Drogba has tormented my Arsenal team quite severely over the years I was quite pleased when Mourinho signed him up for a second spell. Drogba will probably call it quits at Chelsea which will be the most befitting end to his amazing career with the Blues.
Make no mistake about it Arsenal fans, an away game at Chelsea is likely to be the hardest fixture for us in the Premier League this season. It always has been, especially with Jose Mourinho in charge of the Blues, with Arsene Wenger still to register a win over the Portuguese pillock. And this season they look stronger than ever, so the Gunners have a tough task at hand on Sunday.
