West Brom v Arsenal – Tony Pulis is definitely one of Wenger’s bogeys!

Arsenal are on one of their worst runs of form for many years, with 5 defeats out of their last 8 games, and the only wins have come against low-ranking teams in Lincoln, Sutton and Hull, so Arsene Wenger will be desperate to start picking up points again to try and keep pace in the race for the Top Four.

With such a need to find a change in fortune, there are certain managers and teams that Wenger would prefer to avoid at times like these, but he has drawn the short straw by being allocated an away match against his old enemy Tony Pulis at West Brom, and Le Prof certainly won’t be relishing this game.

As another old enemy, Michael Owen, said about the match in his Premier League betting preview: “Tony Pulis has lost only one of his last six Premier League home games with Arsenal and I expect to see his side bounce back after a couple of disappointing performances in recent weeks,”

“The Gunners have lost three of their last four PL games and cannot afford any more slip-ups – such is there recent form I expect to see the Baggies get something from the game.”

Pulis certainly seems to know how to knock Arsenal teams off their stride and with the Gunners in such an unconfident run, could he put another nail in Wenger’s coffin tomorrow?

  1. What good has the “Top four” trophy done for Arsenal under Wenger?

    1. I still haven’t seen what a top 4 trophy looks like.

  2. This is very worrying . this is a mid tables form or even a team fighting for relegation that has that kind of firm vs a team. Problem we hve the longer we keep without beating a team the more the inferiority complex sets in. Soton away, stoke away, this games are very tough for us and what hurts we are yet to play them. If we cant beat the likes of stoke, soton and a pulis side for 6 years what is going on?

  3. Arsenal FC should meet with Wenger and let him know the club has no intention of renewing his contract that expires in June and announcement made. So the club can contact any of Allegro or Enrique. Wenger should go if he truly loves the club. Ranieri did not deserve a sack. So Wenger is not different. The result of the last 3 games we played against Bayern Munich is 15:3. The Board should be talking to Enrique or Allegri by now.

  4. Daily Poll - Will Arsenal regret signing David Luiz?
