Every year it seemed that Arsenal were never ever prepared for the start of the season, with players returning late or fatigued after playing in international games, but this time around we are going to have a great advantage straight from the off, especially as our first two games are against two of our biggest rivals in Manchester City and Chelsea.
Amazingly 40 out of 92 players left in Russia come from the Premier League, and even more amazing is that only one of them is a Gunner, Danny Welbeck. But let’s have a quick look at how many players City and Chelsea still have involved at the World Cup ahead of this week’s semi finals..
1) De Bruyne
And good old Arsenal have only got Danny Welbeck, who is hardly even going to be in Emery’s first choice XI anyway! So this will give us a great chance to take some points of our biggest rivals before they get fit again after the holiday’s.
And even better, The Sp*ds have got NINE players still involved and with their first four games all set to be played away from White Hart Land because the Stadium is not ready, they will be at an even bigger disadvantage….
The future is bright, the future is red!
