Man United v Arsenal is the biggest fixture in this midweek fixture list, but with Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham rivals all having reasonably easy games we could drop behind again if we don’t win at Old Trafford. A win tomorrow would perhaps be even better than the Spurs demolition, but would a draw be so bad if it maintains our unbeaten run?
I think we have a very attacking game in front of us today when The Gunners face Tottenham, as both sides are not the best defensively and will definitely be trying to outscore each other. Leno’s performance could be crucial for us today.
Todays crucial game against Tottenham is a veritable six pointer for both Arsenal and the Spuds, as our rivals are 3 points ahead of us and keeping us out of the Top Four. If we can beat them today we will be back where we belong and above Tottenham on Goal Difference.
The big north London derby is looming and although Tottenham have an awful record playing at Arsenal, their manager Mauriccio Pochettino believes that in their current mood his Tottenham team have the belief that they can beat anyone at the moment.
We are set for one of our biggest games of every season tomorrow when Tottenham come to Arsenal, and with our home record against them we should feel no fear of losing. In the last NLD, back in Fenruary, we lost by just the odd goal, and top-scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is looking for revenge for the fans and would also love to get on the scoresheet.
Well we were all expecting to see all our Arsenal youngsters lining up for tonights game against Vorskla, but Unai Emery has surprised us all again by putting out a very strong team…
But at least we will see Willock, Smith-Rowe and Eddie Nketiah combining up front….
Despite not having to go quite as far as Poltava to play tonight’s match against Vorskla, Arsenal are going to have to face freezing temperatures for the 90 minutes they are on the pitch. The Forecast for Kiev is an amazing -10c, with a ‘real feel’ of minus 12 with the wind factor thrown in. I can imagine that the locals are used to playing in weather like that, but how will affect the Arsenal youngsters who have probably never experienced anything like this before.
