Would Arsenal fans prefer Man City or Liverpool to win?

The most important match for Arsenal fans over this Premier League weekend is, of course, our own away game against West Brom and it is one that the Gunners desperately need to take all three points from in order to keep in touch with the clubs currently occupying the top four Champions League qualifying places.

After that we can easily say that we want Tottenham to lose or drop points at home to Southampton and for Man United to do the same away to Middlesborough, but the final game of the weekend is a trickier one to call as it sees the two sides directly above us take on each other.

The best result for Arsenal from the game at the Etihad between Man City and Liverpool would probably be a draw. Assuming Arsenal win that result would leave us just three points behind Liverpool with two games in hand and just four points off City with one game in hand.

If there was to be a winner, though, which would you prefer? With Arsenal only needing to finish above one of the two, as long as Man United are stuck behind us, you would say a Liverpool loss would help more as they are closer and have played an extra game.

But our next EPL game after West Brom is Man City at home and we also have them in the FA cup, so we don’t really want them feeling confident and playing well do we? It’s a tough one to call Gooners, so how would you like to see the match between our rivals end up?

    Who cares? We should focus on our game. The higher we go in the league table,the more money our greedy board gets and the likely hood wenger has an excuse to sign a new contract. A finish outside the top four is a welcomed development.

    I think for those of us who want Wenger to leave, we should hope for a Liverpool victory. Liverpool are closer in the table to us and if we win our two games in hand we catch them. If Liverpool beat us to 4th place it increases the chance Wenger leaves. A draw for us today and a Liverpool victory would, for the moment, put 4th place out of reach.
