The simple answer to the question posed in the title is no, as long as the 11 Arsenal players who run out onto the pitch at the Emirates stadium on Sunday do not perform in the same way as our team did against Stoke City yesterday. To be honest, even if they do and get the same result I will not give a monkeys, because a 3-0 win over CSKA Moscow would surely be enough to put the tie to bed before the Gunners go to Moscow.
If we play with the same lack of intensity and cutting edge on Thursday as we showed yesterday, however, then Arsenal would need a huge slice of luck to get any sort of win. That being said, I reckon that we will see a different, and much improved, showing from the side on Thursday.
I am sure that Arsene Wenger wanted his players to be sharp yesterday, but they and we are all aware that the Europa League game this week is far more important than a Premier League clash with a Stoke City side that is mired in the relegation zone and playing pretty poorly.
The result was really what mattered this weekend and we got it, without playing well. Arsenal will know that we must play better against CSKA and I am fairly confident that we will. Are you?
