Arsenal are set up for miracle in Monaco by Sam P
First off, I keep hearing people say that Arsenal need to score three without reply against Monaco on Tuesday to save our Champions League season, which is wrong. 3-1 in 90 minutes would take us to extra time and then you would have to make the Gunners favourites. Is that scoreline so hard to believe.
Even though we missed a load of chances against them at the Emirates and defended like a pub team, you would not expect us to do the same again. Apart from that game Arsenal have been in great form and if you swapped the Giroud who ran West Ham ragged today with the one who wasted at least three great chances against Monaco then we would not be in this position.
Look we need things to go our way on Tuesday night, no doubt about it, but they have been doing a lot more this season. Getting Ramsey and Gabriel back just in time is one example of how the signs might just be pointing in our favour. Giroud on fire, Walcott fit and Welbeck back in the goals is another.
Wenger rested a few players like Bellerin and Cazorla and even gave Alexis an early bath so I really hope the boss is planning to go for it. Will it be enough? Only time will tell but a good performance would at least make everyone happier and set us up for the end of the season.
