“This isn’t going to be a walkover for Arsenal” Sutton warns sloppy Arsenal about Slavia Prague

Arsenal has been handed a decent draw in the Europa League as they face Slavia Prague in the competition’s quarter-final.

The Czechs have eliminated Leicester City and Rangers and look to be a solid team to face.

Arsenal has had an inconsistent knockout round, but they have avoided elimination and will look to go all the way.

Alongside Manchester United, they are the two English teams left in the competition and they could meet each other in the final.

Chris Sutton wrote about Arsenal’s draw in his latest column in The Daily Mail and claimed that they will face a Slavia Prague side that is “well-drilled and super fit”.

He warns of the danger that they pose by reminding Arsenal of the British teams they have already eliminated from the competition.

He wrote: “Slavia Prague are running away with the Czech league. They’re well-drilled, super fit, dangerous from set-pieces and like getting in your face.

“They knocked out Leicester then a Rangers side riding on the high of their title triumph. This isn’t going to be a walkover for Arsenal, who have shown signs of sloppiness in recent weeks.”

Winning the Europa League should be Arsenal’s priority at the moment because they are so far behind in the race for the top four places.

  1. Not sure if one could say this is a decent draw – Granada should be classed as a decent draw!!!
    Of course, we really don’t need Sutton to say the obvious… it must be marvellous to be paid to state the bloody obvious!!!!

  2. Isn’t that what most of these “experts” do Ken? So West ham are having a good season, Liverpool really miss their key players and Arsenal are inconsistent. Well Whattayouknow.

    1. Yes, it is my dream job. Take money watch the games and say whatever anyone would tell for free 😅😂

  3. Maybe he was just browsing on this site and saw all the ridiculous articles suggesting we were well on our way to the finals…I hope everyone, minus Arteta, are reading these types of quotes so that we don’t count our chickens…whereas I hope Arteta doesn’t buy into this potential narrative so he doesn’t deploy the same plodding and scared tactics from a couple of days ago when we’re facing Prague

  4. I don’t think any sensible Arsenal fan would consider Slavia Prague to be an easy draw.Any side who can beat Leicester( albeit a weakened Leicester) over two legs must be treated with the utmost respect.Sutton delights in playing the devils advocate, but on this occasion his warnings are justified.

  5. Let’s hope Mikel choose a good lineup and not to overlook those guys. Arteta should be using Lacazette. He is our only hard player upfront. But Mikel Arteta keep on overlooking him because he don’t like him. This time we need goals and Laca is in fine form. He needs to start against Liverpool and Slavia Praha because he has a good goal records against Liverpool.
