Arsenal fans will be hoping that the Premier League’s 18th placed team Hull City can do us a favour by taking points off Chelsea this weekend but not really expecting it from the Tigers, especially as the game is going to be played at Stamford Bridge.
The only thing we can do is to win our own game at home to Burnley and hope that the pressure helps to have a negative effect on Chelsea and for that reason I think the Arsenal fans should be hoping that Tottenham win as well, because at the moment they are the closest challengers to Antonio Conte’s team.
The spuds have a tough game away to Man City but if they do win it might just get Chelsea looking nervously over their shoulders. It would mean that the Gunners would finish the weekend below our north London rivals no matter what we do against Burnley but I think we need to look at the bigger picture right now.
For now that means we need as much pressure on the league leaders as possible and even if it does not pay off this weekend they have a much harder game coming after Hull, as they travel to Anfield to face Liverpool. If they do drop points and allow the chasing pack to catch up, Arsenal can deal with Tottenham then.
Let’s just postpone St. Totteringham’s day for a while shall we?
