Arsenal threw away a 3-0 lead against Anderlecht in the UEFA Champions league to gift Borussia Dortmund full rights to finish top of the group. Arsenal’s happy hour was marred in the last 30mins as they invoked the spirits that befell the infamous 4-4 draw at St James Park.
The gunners will look to pick themselves up as they travel to Wales to face Swansea. Unbeaten in the last 5 games against the swans but must be mindful of Sigurdsson who may replace Michu who was a torn to Arsenal’s flesh. Fabianski will face Arsenal in a game of two Poles.
Alexis Sanchez is the man of the month with every award for the month of October in his pocket. The Chilean will look to continue his form and maybe save the gunners for the umpteenth time. The former Barcelona forward has been impressive for the gunners topping the goal scoring chart. He has created more chance, shot on target than any other gunner after 10 premier league games. Will he turn up in Swansea? FPL on my mind.
I don’t expect a clean sheet with a slow Metersacker partnered with a left back Monreal. Arteta’s hamstring makes the equation more glaring with Flamini his only deputy. Chambers and Gibbs have been doing well. Cazorla’s shooting tricks may have faded but Wenger may introduce the pace of Walcott.
Predicted Line-up: Szczesny, Metersacker, Monreal, Chambers, Gibbs, Flamini, Cazorla, Ramsey, Chamberlain, Sanchez and Welbeck.
Scores: 2-1 Arsenal win. Welbeck and Sanchez to score.
Irrespective of the magnitude of the scores, the 3 points is very important especially seeing the way Chelsea are faring at the top of the table.
ICYMI: Nigeria launched a new stadium, the Akwa Ibom International Stadium with a friendly match. The match ended 1-0 in favour of Nigeria over Ghana.
Enjoy your weekend.
