No matter what happened in the other Premier League games set to be played this weekend, there was always going to be a lot of pressure on Arsene Wenger and the Arsenal players after our side had fallen out of the top four and into the worst position at this point of a season for over 10 years.
It was also the way way the Gunners played in our last game away to West Brom that has upped the pressure from the frustrated Arsenal fans, so the big clash with Man City was already one in which the pressure was on for Arsenal. However, that pressure could be cranked up to the max by the time our game at the Emirates kicks off, purely because ours is the last game of the weekend and that gives all of our rivals bar City the chance to stretch their lead.
First up on Saturday is the Merseyside derby and if Liverpool win they go to a massive nine points ahead of Arsenal. Even though we will have three games in hand that will not look good. Tottenham travel to Burnley knowing a win would give them a 12 point gap with us having just two extra games to play.
Man Uni9ted are at home to West Brom who we must hope can repeat their heroics of a fortnight ago, otherwise Arsenal could be five points behind the fifth placed team in the league and looking at a massive mountain to climb, which is not what an out of form side lacking in confidence needs.
Are you looking forward to this weekend Gooners?
