“Arsenal are in no doubt that the Liverpool game will go ahead”

Hopefully the furore from Arsenal’s postponement of the North London Derby will calm down at last, as it now seems certain that we will finally have our rescheduled League Cup semifinal against Liverpool concluded on Thursday evening.

Despite the huffing and puffing, it is easily forgotten that it was Liverpool themselves that called for the game to be postponed in the first place, and Mikel Arteta is still for the Gunners to play as many games as possible as long as we have a full team available.

Although Arsenal have let another player leave this week, as in Sead Kolasinac, according to the Arsenal specialist journalist Charles Watts it would appear that Arsenal are pretty sure that the game will go ahead, as there have been more players returning to training.

Watts tweeted last night…..

With Odegaard’s return, and having recalled Miguel Azeez from Portsmouth, Arteta will now be able to field a passable midfield pairing, but it looks like Cedric Soares hasn’t recovered in time so we are sweating on the return of Tomiyasu.

And, if we are really lucky, Arteta could also have Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith-Rowe, Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers also fit and available for selection, in which case I think we could actually have a very strong team on the pitch as we aim to book a place in the League Cup Final against Chelsea.

  1. Great, we shouldn’t postpone a League Cup game

    I was just surprised when Arsenal let Mari go, because nobody can effectively replace Magalhaes in the left CB position

    Maybe Arsenal are trying to sign Alessio Romagnoli, Luiz Felipe, Dan-Axel Zagadou or John Anthony Brooks this month?

    1. I know you are very focused on which foot a professional footballer is but I know Saliba is very capable on his left.

      1. Has Saliba played as a left CB in Ligue 1? In EPL, I’m impressed with Rudiger’s consistency in that position

  2. How quickly things can change in football. Spurs score 2 goals in 3 minutes to win and leapfrog Arsenal :-((

  3. Leicester messed up. The third goal spurs scored could have been avoided. Fourth place will go down the wire..

    Westham and
    Chelsea are in for a shout

  4. Not a good day for us! Both the Spuds and Man U win away. Going to be a tight race for 4th spot, we need to win the NLD.

  5. I think the EPL club sides’s managers and their comrades in arm spokespersons, and the football anti-Arsenal journalists and pundits will in due course of time regret their anti-Arsenal posture making that they’ve made in their outbursts of unguided utterances they have made against Arsenal. When they came out enmas condemning Arsenal for their having the NLD match postponed.

    Which as a result of the unethical grudges that are made against Arsenal over their asking for the postponement is now forcing the Premier League to review the Covid, Injuries, Illness and Players absentee Guidance that they’ve put in place to guide the EPL clubs in their requests for the postponement of their match.

    But what of when those anti-Arsenal posters fall into the same plight that Arsenal recently found themselves in that forced them to apply for the postponement of their North London Derby match at away against Tottenham Hs? Will those EPL clubs apply for a postponement or what will they do?

    I think as the Premier League are set to review the Covid, Injuries, Illness and Players absentee Guidance put in place by them. They should maintain the status quo. But not allow themselves to be cowed in by those anti-Arsenals out there attempting to force them to unnecessary make a review of the Guidance.

  6. So…the Xhaka yellow card under investigation? I looked at it and it reminded me when I saw it the first te I felt it was very unnecessary from Xhaka to pick that yellow card. Then again Xhaka gets an unnecessary yellow card just about every game, maybe that’s who he is or maybe he has been cheating for a long time.

  7. Good to see we are playing. Point is we dont cheat the FA like other clubs do and get away with it. Hope we beat Liverpool and get to the Wembley final.
