Arsenal v Molde Build-up & Predicted Score as we look to extend 100% EL record

Arsenal will play host to Molde this evening with both sides looking to extend their 100% records in the competition thus far.

We both come into the tie having beaten both Rapid Vienna and Dundalk to kickstart their qualification for the next round, and whichever team wins tonight will feel as though they have on leg in the next round already.

While the Swedish side have the best form on paper coming into the fixture, they will be the clear outsiders to come away with all three points

Molde come into the tie on the back of six straight wins, but none of their opposition is held in as high regard as Arsenal FC…

Our team also comes into the match on the back of consecutive wins, including that all-important win at Old Trafford at the weekend, but one or both of us will be giving up our 100% records at the final whistle.

Our manager will be expected to ring the changes for the Europa League match this evening, but our squad has more than enough in it using our squad players to be confident of bringing home the win.

Arteta has the team playing very well lately, and the extended squad players which get the nod this evening will be hoping to impress the coach in order to convince him that they are deserving of more first-team minutes, and this will have the team fired up.

Joe Willock definitely attracted the right attention with his performance last week, and he could well enter the coach’s plans with a similar outing today, should he feature of course.

This kind of mindset will have our players working hard, and for this reason I can’t overlook our side from getting the right result. I’m predicting a comfortable 3-1 win at the Emirates this evening, and feel as though we will take the initial lead early on.

Which players will you be hoping to see perform this evening? What are your early predictions for the matchup?

      It baffles me sometimes Kev how some of this blog’s writers miss out on details..
      For a well established site, this is not to sound harsh but overwhelming..
      Sometimes even some of our own players nationalities, past clubs, etc are stated wrongly.
      The previous article on team news stated Pablo Mari as Argentine for example..
      And there are so many other blunders that I can’t start mentioning.
      One would hope that at least little research is done before putting out information for articles.
      I love this site very much, been following since before the days of Hafiz Rahman and Fatboy gooney..
      I’m constant on this site perhaps more than Gotanidea who usually comments first (Lol) but i just prefer reading most times.
      So please Admins you can look into this.
      Thanks

        A lot of the articles are just copied and pasted from other sites. They probably don’t even read them themselves.

        Thanks for clarifying the “Argentine”, I was double checking Emi transfer 😉

      Kev, Such a basic error showing total lack of homework. No one knows everything nor can be expected to. But checking basic facts like Molde being Norwegian is so easy. POOR SHOW PATRICK!

    OT stop counting!

  5. Lord Denning says:

    It’s been long since we demolished a team,6:0 to the Arsenal we are capable

  6. Twig says:

    I miss those days when we played the most beautiful football in the country 🙂

    1. Lord Denning says:

      @Twig Arsenal is was known for sexy football and orgasmic techniques perhaps we need to go to the transfer market looking specifically for players with flair going forward

    2. jon fox says:

      I bet you don’t miss those last years of having a joke defence though, do you! What I missed until MA arrived was having any defence at all and a CB with any quality. Not now !

    ESR to miss out ☹
