The way that the fixture list is falling at the minute may well feel like the worst possible timing for Arsenal fans and to be fair it is far from ideal for us to have to face a north London derby with Tottenham and a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the Premier League as well as the crunch clash in the Champions League with PSG in the month of November which is well publicised as being a traditionally tough time for us.
On top of that it appears that the Gunners are suffering a slump in form after a great run at the exact same time as our next opponents Man United are on the up, but I would not be overly concerned about this if I were you. For one thing, my Gran and a bunch of her pals could have beaten Swansea City yesterday, so while it was a confidence boost for United to win I do not think it really shows them in good form.
Perhaps the most important thing that happened in this game pertaining to our visit there in two weeks was the yellow card picked up by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as it was his fifth of the season so far and that means he cannot face us. For me this severely weakens United and gives me a lot more confidence and I am sure it will be the same for the Arsenal defenders.
Just because they won this game, do not think that all is rosy at Old Trafford either, because Jose Mourinho seems determined to ruffle feathers in the dressing room and we saw how well that worked at Chelsea last season. His latest trick was to all but call Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw lazy and uncommitted after they ruled themselves out of Sunday’s game due to fitness issues.
I am sure that will make the United dressing room a happier place aren’t you? I truly believe that Arsenal do not need to worry about United as they are a bit of a shambles right now. The question is, do we need to worry about Arsenal?
