It is true that most Arsenal fans have been pleased with the way that Arsene Wenger has modified, or at least added to, his tactics for the Gunners over the last year or so. While we all love to see the exciting and adventurous style of football for which the Gunners have become famous under the Frenchman, it was getting a bit too obvious that we only had one way of playing.
So the plan B of last season, as well as getting us some great results, restored a lot of our faith in the beleaguered boss and began to convince us, and other teams, that we could be a serious contender for the Premier League title.
With Monday´s visitors to the Emirates Stadium, Liverpool, being one of our main rivals for that coveted EPL crown, you might think that it was time for plan B again, but I am not so sure. Chelsea and Jose Mourinho might be able to win a title with negative tactics but it still does not feel right for Arsenal and Wenger, especially at home.
And there are two big reasons, in my opinion, for us to be a bit gung ho against the scousers. One is Alexis Sanchez and his match fitness. Wenger has implied that the Chilean should be nearly 100 percent on Monday and that is a massive weapon, both in attack and in stopping them breaking on us.
The second is the minor injury that looks like keeping Jordan Henderson out. Without Gerrard he is their engine room and so without him I see us being able to get at their back line. What do you think Gooners, is it time to take a risk and go for it?
