The ex-Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor is not the most popular player amongst our exiles, and he is plotting to put the pressure on us by beating Stoke today. If Spurs win this afternoon then Arsenal will drop back down to fifth in the table and will need nothing less than a win against Wigan on Tuesday to regain the advantage.
Arsenal have a big run of games ahead as the chase for the Champions League places hots up. We face QPR today, Wigan on Tuesday week, and then the nail-biting away game at Newcastle on the last day of the season. All of these are very winnable games, with Wigan having only won two of their last six games, Newcastle have won just once and today’s opponents QPR are winless in their last six.
Arsenal went flying into a 1-0 lead after just 2 minutes of yesterday’s game against Man United but a moment of madness from Bacary Sagna gave Robin Van Persie the chance to peg us back and set up a nervous second half.
Arsenal 0 – 0 Everton, a point that should’ve been 3. by KJ
The physicality of Everton was difficult to deal with in the first half but Arsenal had numerous chances to win the game in the end and now have put top 4 contention out of their hands.
It is quite an amazing statistic that the current League Champions Man City haven’t won away at Arsenal for an incredible 37 years, and Arsene Wenger will be trying as hard as possible to motivate his players to carry on this unusual run.
The Arsenal new-boy Santi Cazorla arrived at a team with great promise at the beginning of the season, but now he simply doesn’t understand why they can’t play at the highest level consistently. The Gunners have gained just two points from their last three League games and have dropped down to tenth place in the Premiership and Cazorla is worried that this season is slipping away from us.
This is a small analysis of the tactics employed by the two longest serving managers in the EPL history during their team’s matches yesterday.
ARSENE WENGER vs ALEX FERGUSON by JJ
Well not exactly the same POSITION, but Arsenal have EXACTLY the same amount of points as after 33 games last year. And if they win tonight and draw with Chelsea at the weekend then, again, it will be exactly the same as last year.
