It would be nice for Arsene Wenger as well as the Arsenal fans and players if we could approach the final home game of the long reign of the Frenchman with little else to worry about. However, there is still a big game to play which we really cannot afford tyo lose as it could have serious repercussions for next season.
If Burnley inflict another defeat on the Gunners today, it will not only spoil the send off for Wenger, as it would put the Clarets on the same points as us with just one game of the season left to play. With Burnley and their great home record hosting Bournemouth next week you would expect them to win, whereas we have a trip to Leicester and not a single away Premier League point this year.
Arsenal do not want to have the very early start to next season that would come with us finishing in 7th place so it is vital for the players to keep their focus today, but with all the high emotion surrounding this afternoon, I have serious doubts about our ability to do it.
Will today turnout to be as painful as the rest of the season for us Gooners and the departing boss?
