Arsenal boss keeping focus as PSG decider looms

Arsene Wenger did not want to talk about the chances of Arsenal winning our Champions League group being likely to hinge on the fifth match, which will be when PSG come to London, even though he must be thinking the same thing as the rest of us.

I think the Frenchman is right, to be fair, as we have seen the Gunners hit an unexpected banana skin or two down the years. Instead, when interviewed and asked about the likely future of group A after the thumping win over Ludogorets, the boss was quick to insist that we need to focus fully on beating the Bulgarians on their own turf in the next European tie. We can think and talk about it though.

There is always a chance that the French champions will drop points in their next game away to the Swiss club Basel, especially as their 3-0 win at home over them was a flattering scoreline, but I would assume that their trip to London at the end of November will be the key match.

Our goal difference is currently better and we should increase that in the next round, so that would mean that a draw with PSG not scoring more than once would be enough to see us top the group. We would certainly be in the driving seat with just the final game away to Basel to get through.

Do you think Arsenal v PSG will decide the group? And who do you really think will win it?



  1. If we keep winning and retain our confidence all three are winnable. Mourinho hasn’t got United playing like he wants. PSG are only half as good as last year.And the Spuds arein for a proper beating!

    1. Psg is a really hard match, remember we came back with a point thx to Cavani for not having the scoring boots

  2. November = Tottenham, Man utd, PSG, add a Quarter Final for the EFL cup.
    December we have Stoke, Everton and Man city.
    January = lots of matches to play with easy opponents, but its the month that test consistency and quality
    Febuary = we got Chelsea and Southampton, crucial first knockout round UCL
    March = tough game at Liverpool, Leicester and 2nd leg of first round knockout UCL
    April = Man City, tottenham and UCL quarter final
    May = Man Utd, Everton FA cup Final

    1. When you say it like that, it’s nearly summer already. Lets do one game at a time, savour this spell we’re on. People wont agree, but Ozil as brilliant as it was, Alexis for me was the man of the match again. Ozil really turned it on, but Ludogrets had given up the ghost by then, for the time Alexis was on the pitch I thought he was the best player out there.

  3. Why ask an Arsenal Fan who would Top group A? Of course its Arsenal,if our players turn up in the next two champions league game,it would be more easier. But in football nothing comes easy

  4. I would love us to beat PSG and also that PSG drops points at Basel. That way we can play the last game against Basel and introduce lots of academy players.

  5. I would rather we prioritise the immediate game ahead of us. when PSG come calling, we shall also have them firmly in focus. Iam hoping the injury a reduction measures being implemented will be effective so that the boys are fit for the matches.
    Most of the times that we have lost against big teams was because our best players were nursing injuries.
    Come on gooners! Let’s overtake city this weekend.
