Just a recap for those of you who don’t remember; Arsenal beat Man City in comfortable fashion, a 3-0 win to silence critics who were criticizing that Arsenal were failing to win games against the top teams. Dedrick Boyata got sent off after 3 minutes, forcing City to play the majority of the game with 10 men. Samir “Cuntbag” Nasri opened the scoring to make the score 0-1 at half time. Alex Song than got on the score sheet, before Bendtner killed the gmae off in 89th minute. So what’s the difference between City and Arsenal that has separated them apart this season? Simple, the £100m City spent since the last time the two sides met.
Most people would be expecting City to come out comfortable winners, however, Arsenal has been on a much better form of lately. This is mainly due to the fact, of course, that Robin Van Persie has been simply irresistible this season. Where would Arsenal be without him?
Van Persie has won us 7 games in total this season, 5 in the league. This means that he has won us arsenal 15 points from our 29 this season. Arsenal is definitely no one-man team, but if Van Persie were to get injured, who would replace him? Chamakh? Park? Walcott? Some scary choices there so let’s all prey that Van Persie can be fit for the whole season.
Possible starting line up: Szczesny; Vermaelen, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Djourou!; Song, Arteta, Ramsey; Walcott, Van Persie, Gervinho
Anyways, with City on a lowish point, I
hope am confident that Arsenal will come out winners. I have faith in our squad and expect them to challenge any team in the world at the moment.
Come on Arsenal!
