Arsenal must beware despite Kane´s goal drought

It remains to be seen just how strong a side Arsenal will be faced with in out away game with Tottenham in the Capital One cup, but I suspect that their main striker Harry Kane will be in the starting line up. That might not be too much of a worry to most Arsenal fans, as the Spurs centre forward has yet to score for his club this season, but I think we need to be very wary indeed.

It would be just about typical for him to find his shooting boots against Arsenal, just as Chelsea suddenly remembered how to play last weekend. Kane scored both goals when we lost at Spurs last season, so that will help his confidence levels and a derby game in front of a vocal home crowd will give him the perfect opportunity to get off the mark.

With Gabriel suspended, the return to fitness of Per Mertesacker is just in time and I think that Wenger needs to keep Laurent Koscielny in the side alongside him, as we must do all we can to ensure that Kane´s goal drought continues and there is no Ciquelin to provide the back four with protection.

One mistake and an early goal could be all Kane needs to rediscover his form of last season and that could be very bad news for Arsenal.

    Costa got a 3 match ban and Gabriel got his red card rescinded LOL 🙂

    I know we still lost 3 points but with Eva Carniero suing Mourinho, this is sweet

    1. Robertthegooner says:

      You made a mistake above
      Gabriel can play tomorrow lol

      To be fair, Remy is an excellent backup to Costa, so Chelsea are fine on the striker front

      But still hehehe lol

  2. Robertthegooner says:

    Can’t wait for Mourinho’s reaction tomorrow
    Please Jose, don’t let us down lol
    Rant and Rave.

      He got 3 undeserved points
      and Costa will only miss Walsall
      Newcastle and Southampton
      so no great hurt for Chelsea.
      Better Chelsea have 2 points deducted as well.

    Former Manchester United full-back Gary Neville feels Diego Costa’s three-match ban for violent conduct is harsh, expressing his disbelief on Twitter.
    Does he have a clue what he is talking about

  4. davidnz says:

    The FA used technology to
    retrospectively red card Costa.
    If they can get the decision right
    “after” the game why not use the same
    technology to get the decision right “during” the game?
    We already use goal line technology.
    IMO all goals, all penalties, and all red cards
    should be reviewed on the field.

    We gave Zagreb their first win in the Champions league since 1999, we gave Chelsea some much needed confidence after weeks of them performing poorly. I’m pretty sure we will give Kane his goal scoring form back and let us forget Wayne Rooney we will probably return to him to world class status. we’re a magical team.

    Would like to see gabriel having harry kane in his pocket!

    Would have love to see diego costa and vinnie jones going at it toe to toe in this modern day! Only thing is afterwards costa would need his team mates to help him salvage all his teeth around stamford bridge!
