Arsenal fans will be hoping that the blue half of Merseyside can do us a favour, with Roberto Martinez taking his Everton side to face our main Premier League rivals Man City. And with Pellegrini missing key players like Kompany, Mangala, Fernandinho, Bony and Nasri there is a decent chance.
Next few games could decide our title credentials by KM
Hello fellow Gooners. Excited about the return of the League? It’s this time of the year, where matches come thick and fast and in a span of a week you can jump up or down with a few positions. So the fixture list sees three very difficult games coming up.
Arsenal face a tricky trio of League games starting tonight at Anfield, and the outcome of these tests could prove decisive in proving Arsenal’s credentials as title contenders, according to the ex-Arsenal star Paul Merson.
Arsenal head to Anfield in fine fettle and with a lot of confidence. We have just got through to the next round of the FA cup with a comfortable victory over Premier League opponents in Sunderland. We also pulled off a miraculous rescue mission to stay in the Champions League although I do not want to think about our next two European games against the might of Barcelona right now.
Jurgen Klopp arrived at Liverpool with an impressive reputation after building Borussia Dortmund into a team capable of challenging Bayern Munich (and also beating Arsenal a couple of times!), and Arsene Wenger respects the German for that and is expecting a tough match when they meet each other in the Premier League for the first time tomorrow night.
The new Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is well aware that Arsenal play the possession football that he wants his own team to play, but realises that it is too early to try and match them at their own game and instead is working out a plan to stop the Gunners taking control of the game tomorrow night.
Next up for Arsenal in the Premier League is the tough looking trip to Anfield to take on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool next Wednesday. Before that we have the FA cup clash at home to Sunderland and we have already heard their manager Sam Allardyce bitching and moaning about the scheduling of the games and complaining that it will affect their chances in the league.
I must admit to having been a bit more worried about Liverpool’s chances of stopping Arsenal from winning the Premier League title once the Anfield club had got rid of their Northern Irish manager Brendan Rodgers and replaced him with the charismatic German coach Jurgen Klopp.
