It is another big weekend for Arsenal as we face Manchester United at home.
The victory over Chelsea was superb. One of the best nights of the last few
years. It has put us back in the race for the top 4 and hope has returned to
Alongside hope, false expectation has returned.
I see across social media everyone is expecting us to walk over Manchester
United. But it will not be an easy game.
The win against Chelsea was good, but it was just our 2nd
6 games. We are not in sparkling form.
I remember before the Brighton game writing a blog about who we could see a
big swing. That we face a poor Brighton team at home whilst Tottenham had a
tricky-ish trip away to Aston Villa.
We lost and they trounced Villa 4-0.
Instead of us moving 3 points ahead – with a game in hand – we fell 3 points
The Brentford game does look a potential banana skin for them, but the
Manchester United one is also a banana skin for us.
With 6 games to go, neither Arsenal nor Tottenham will win 6 from 6. Both
will drop points – likely in at least two games.
With it being neck and neck, the key could be who can turn to defeat into a
draw. That one point could be all that is in it.
Enjoy the game today. Hopefully the pubs open a bit earlier
than normal as its an early kick off.
