If Wigan can beat Man City, so can Arsenal!

Considering it was being talked about at Christmas that Man City had every chance of ending the season equaling Arsene Wenger’s Invincible record achieved by Arsenal, it has since been proved that Pep Guardiola’s side are far from unbeatable.

Two weeks into the New Year, Liverpool beat City by going all out on the attack and proving that Guardiola’s defence is still pretty suspect and are prone to nearly as many mistakes as Arsenal (well, not quite!) but it shows that the Gunners will have chances to expose their weaknesses, especially with Aubameyang leading the front line.

And just last week, lowly Wigan proved that City can be outfought by knocking Man City out of the FA Cup, and our Spanish wing back Hector Bellerin thinks this has given Arsenal extra belief that today’s final is winnable. Bellerin said: “They’re a team that had everything to play for but everyone is beatable, even the best teams in the world.

“Their performances have been great and they have a great team. They have a good defence now too which was one of the things previously that was lacking.

“They have a great team overall but it can be done. If it can be done by Wigan, it can be done by us.

“We have great players too and new players who have come in – we feel stronger than ever.”

As Hector said, it has been proven they are beatable, and there is one other fact that gives me more hope of an Arsenal success. City have lost one game in the League, one game in the Champions League, one in the FA Cup, so perhaps they will lose one in the League Cup as well, TODAY!!!!

    It’s just a League Cup for City… Maybe they would play with half-arse

    OT: I hope Wenger watch MU vs Chelsea now, coz that’s how he was supposed to select his players in a 3-4-2-1 formation. The two attacking midfielders behind Morata are very quick, mobile and gifted with great ball control

    1. gotanidea says:

      Plus how MU set their players in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation

    If Nottingham forest can beat arsenal then so can man city

  3. Ian wrights bruva says:

    If the team fight for each other over 90 minutes we can win. If we sit back and try and counter would could get a hiding. You never know which Arsenal will turn up.

    Finger crossed.

    @Van Payslip, I suppose an Arsenal loss to ManCity today will give you so much joy.

    And if ostersunds can beat arsenal then city can finish wengers career

    1. Kedar Damle says:

      Boss no one can finish Wenger’s career as he is been over protected by by BoD

  6. Gaz says:

    Let’s be honest though, Arsenals defence is not a patch on Wigans.

    My choices in order of preference
    Win the cup wenger leaves
    Lose the cup wenger leaves
    Win the cup Wenger stays
    Lose the cup wenger stays ( most probable in betting circles)

    Arsenal starting the game against Manchester City in FEAR
    did you hear me Wenger in Fear
    then, you can see the result in the first 20 minutes Manchester 1 Arsenal 0

    Re your article. Obviously City do have the beating of Arsenal, perhaps Arsene should have watched how Latics beat them. Good thing though City can only win the treble.
