Arsenal handed EPL boost as Liverpool problems mount!

Arsenal head into the weekend’s big Premier League clash with a great chance of beating a struggling Liverpool team and banishing the memories of last season’s 5-1 pasting at Anfield. A win could put the Gunners as high as fourth and will open up an eight point gap on Brendan Rodgers and his players.

Arsenal do have plenty of our own problems to deal with, as usual. The injury situation at the Emirates may be easing, but Arsene Wenger will still have to do without a long list of key players such as Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Laurent Koscielny.

So it is good to see that our rivals have their own problems as well and they are not restricted to low confidence and poor performances. Brendan Rodgers has this week lost two more players for the visit of Arsenal and that has got to be good news for us.

Dejan Lovren picked up an injury in the midweek league cup game at Bournemouth, joining Johnson and Flanagan in the Anfield treatment room and leaving Liverpool’s defence just as stretched, if not more so, than ours. And now they have been weakened at the other end as well, with the news on Sky Sports that Mario Balotelli has been given a one game ban for his recent twitter post that was supposed to be anti-racist but was actually offensive.

Nario may not be so super at the minute but he is one of their few options and there was always the chance that he would spark into action against Arsenal. Now at least we have one less thing to worry about so things are looking good for the Gunners.

      I want revenge for the complete humiliation we suffered at Anfield last season 😉

      3p is good, but what would be really good is a 5-0 win with three goals from Sanchez, as a f*ck you to liverpool ^^

    Easy game IMO, should be able to score 3 or 4 against slippy g and co. If we start like we did against Newcastle they won’t know what hit em, pace pace pace just like they did to us round, so let’s give them a taste of their medicine.

    The only way I see them getting a chance to score is set piece for gerrard, sterling with all the pace in the world can’t do it all by himself ATM

    To be honest losing Lovren and Balotelli is a blessing for Liverpool.Lovren is so awful.With or with out these players, this is an easy win for Arsenal.

    1. Goonsquad8 says:

      dude and they lost Johnson I’m so mad i wanted him and lovren to play

  5. cheeterspotter says:

    Due to our same game plan home or away I fear that Sundays result will. not be a good one for us.lf I am wrong, whoopee.

  6. Twig says:

    It seems as Cazorla’s influence is increasing, that of Sanchez is decreasing. We want both to be on form at the same time!

    1. jonestown1 says:

      “Decreasing influence” of Sanchez – 2 assists in the last game. I can live with that.

  7. True.Gonner says:

    Who is nairo?

  8. True.Gonner says:

    Who is nario?

  9. dima says:

    Can we please stop writing these articales about that they have injuries and we will beat them by 4 goals. To me it looks like we are so bad that we can not beat them without those injuries. Because what will be the artical Sunday after (God forbid) we loose the game????My opinion, Let them have the best team they can come up with, and we still beat them so they will not be able to come up with excuses!

    @True.Gunner Nairo is the “Mario Balotelli” Liverpool bought

  11. KickAssFan says:

    Yo! Nairo??? He some damn mora*oka from da hood. Nigga be owing me some quid. Ama lay ma hends on da broda, he was wish he dead.

  12. royalman says:

    People called Man u the worst team then yet we were beaten by them and they r on six winning games on a roll. Between monday n now Liverpool might hv resolved some of ther problems. Let our team prepare well for the game that the only boost we can get to win.

  13. LoCkAy says:

    A real “boost” would be Liverpool to have an off day.
    A real “boost” would be to have the Ox fit.
    A real “boost” would be to have Ozil fit.
    A real “boost” would be to have a top manager on the bench (not going to happen, is it?).

    Liverpool are not in the same form and shape as last season… But, again, Man United are not that great, but manage to win at the Emirates…!!!

    1. Goonsquad8 says:

      dude just stop with the negativity your sh*t gets old quick you only rear your ugly head when we lose or you wanna complain

  14. royalman says:

    Man u may not be gr8 but it in form now, go check how many matches won on a roll. We can’t joke with any top team in EPL Liverpool inclusive
