Just like in the last round of Premier League games, Arsenal fans know that at least one of our main rivals for the title will be dropping points. Last time the Gunners did not make the most of the slips by Chelsea and Liverpool as we only just managed to rescue a point at Bournemouth.
This weekend is another away game for Arsenal against a team we are expected to beat in Swansea City, but we will have the advantage of a week’s rest as well as the return of some big players like Mesut Ozil to the side, and as long as we have learned our lessons from the last two slow starts then you would assume that we will be three points better off by Saturday night.
Assuming that and looking at the other fixtures it could be a very good weekend all round for Arsenal. Tottenham face an in form West Brom who have won both of their league games since they came within minutes and a Giroud header from holding us to a point.
Both Man City and Chelsea have tough away games against Everton and Leicester City respectively, while Liverpool have the fierce local derby against Man United at Old Trafford. Can the improving Foxes put another dent in Chelsea’s title momentum? Can Everton do to Man City what they did to us? And will the United v Liverpool match end in the perfect result for us, a draw? Fingers crossed gooners….
