Width v Defence gives Arsenal boss BIG decision for Chelsea

As well as a fierce battle for bragging rights, the top of the table clash between Arsenal and Chelsea tomorrow also sees the latest tactical battle between Arsene Wenger and his tormentor-in-chief Jose Mourinho. And as usual, we expect it to be a clash of styles, with our Prof preferring his exciting and fluent brand of football while the Chelsea boss would play 11 keepers if he was allowed and just needed a point.

EVERY Arsenal player is a GREAT player!

It is now two years since Nacho Monreal arrived at Arsenal from Malaga, and after a long fight with Kieran Gibbs for the starting spot at left-back he has gradually worked his way into being first choice for Arsene Wenger.

Arsenal to complete deal for BRILLIANT defender!

There have been so many outstanding performers for Arsenal at various stages of this season that the less eye-catching players have maybe gone under the radar and not been given the credit they deserve.
