Bring it on, Manchester City! by Lagos Gooner
Hello everybody, it is another weekend; a weekend of football, a weekend of passion and a weekend of exciting goals. I am still basking in the euphoria of our come back against West Ham firstly, and then against Standard Liege, on Thursday night.
Well, in as much as I wish to remain in this paradise of celebration, I still have to remind myself that we have another big game coming up on Sunday; we play Manchester City in a must-win game. Manchester City being the defending champions of the English premiership is a team that Arsenal won’t fancy playing, especially at this fragile stage of the season. But being a big club means we have to be ready to face any team, no matter their pedigree. Arsenal is a big club and I am 90% certain that we will get a positive result against Man City on Saturday.
There is something I have being noticing in our boys; they had always tried coming back in the games we lost in the past but it was just not working for them. However, it seems we have found a way of crawling our way back into relevance, whenever we have been down. We did it against West Ham, we did it against Standard Liege and if the need arises, I believe we will do it against Manchester City.
However, I strongly believe Arsenal will announce to the whole football world on Sunday that they are now back to playing for results, pride, and for the fans who have stood by them when everything looked gloomy. The players, I believe, will draw inspirations from our last two games and they will come out to teach the Citizens a great lesson. Our Christmas celebrations may well start this Sunday.
With Auba, Pepe and Martinelli playing a front three attack against the citizens, goals will surely be scored. The problem however, may be our woeful defensive problems; a problem I feel will be resolved soon.
Okay family, I predict us winning the game 2-1, what do you predict?
