Molde v Arsenal Match Preview & Predicted Score – Gunners can cement top spot

Arsenal will make the trip to Norway this evening to take on Molde, where we have the chance to all-but cement ourselves into top spot with two matches remaining.

The Gunners have a 100% record in Europe this term, and will take on the team currently sat second in the group this evening.

While Arsenal haven’t been excelling in the Premier League, their European form has remained unphased, and having beaten Molde 4-1 at the Emirates just three weeks ago, you could be forgiven for expecting much of the same tonight.

The Tornekrattet have the better form domestically of the two sides, but even with four points from their two league matches since losing in North London, I wouldn’t be expecting them to be filled with confidence ahead of the early-evening encounter.

Despite our struggles in front of goal in the PL, I don’t expect that to carry on into tonight’s clash, and we could well see one of Alexandre Lacazette or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang playing as we look to build the confidence up for our strikers.

I can’t think any further than a win for Arsenal, while with a number of players expected to be rotated into the side, we will most likely concede at some point.

I expect a scoreline along the lines of 3-1 to us, with the goals shared out amongst the players.

Does anyone believe our league form could spill over into tonight’s match? What are your predictions tonight?

    OT. I learnt William Saliba wants to terminate his contract with Arsenal. How true is it?

    If it’s true, I will never forgive Arteta.

      Players can’t just terminate their contracts likewise clubs can’t just terminate players contract unless there’s a mutual agreement. There’s no way Arsenal will agree to terminate his contract and take a hug loss.

      This is old news. He want’s to go back to Saint Etienne on loan, but they can’t afford his near £90K per month wages, but apparently he’s willing to take a pay cut make it happen.

    Theres too many lazy players in the team, so no surprise if we don’t win here. May even have to come back from behind to win.

    I’m already looking at the weekend, and there might be a third straight loss at Emirates against Wolves. They played their best game this season against Southamption.

    There is nothing to show this season that we will win easy.
    If we do it shows pressure is getting to them in the league.
    We need to dominate games again and the goals will come. We need 11 players to start playing when they can in every game as consistancy is what we need we look as if they first met.
    Oh Sailba if he goes he goes hes not played so we wont miss him.
    2-0 tonight I hope.
