There is one group of players and fans that will be happier than any other tonight and they are the ones connected with Liverpool. I am not going to even try to pretend that I would have preferred Brendan Rodgers’ side to be facing the Red Devils of Old Trafford but the draw threw us up against United instead.
The worst thing about the draw, in my opinion, is the fact that we have to play away but here come the positives: First of all the Gunners seem to be playing well and hitting form and after the way we played away to beat Man City recently we should have no real fear.
Secondly, they are playing absolute rubbish! Seriously Gooners, you thought we were bad? Looking at United’s results you would think they were a good team. Look further and you will see that they are turgid, void of attacking ideas and basically awful.
Look guys, we could lose this game but if we were going to retain the FA cup trophy it was always going to mean beating at least one top side. Now Arsenal may have to do it twice. Did we really expect anything else?
