Three competitions, three different challenges for Arsene Wenger’s men

Posted on Posted in Arsenal blog

Arsenal’s revival after a slow start to the 2011-12 campaign seems thoroughly underway, as Arsene Wenger’s men have improved in recent weeks. Fixtures against Bolton, Chelsea and Marseille in three different competitions await The Gunners’ next, with a chance to stake a claim in all three tournaments.

Chelsea v Arsenal

The Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 29th October is one that will test the new look Arsenal side, as Andre Villas Boas’ men are in-form and looking like title contenders. With the passion and intensity of a London derby new to some of the summer additions to the Gunners’ squad, Wenger will count on the likes of Robin van Persie and Aaron Ramsey to lead by example.

The Emirates outfit have the quality to go to The Bridge and get a result, but must start well and defend in a more organised and compact fashion to deny the likes of Juan Mata space.

Tickets for this high profile clash are still available; you can purchase Arsenal tickets online from TicketBis, with the prices for this game starting at £223.60.

Arsenal v Bolton

Bolton travel to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday 25th October in the Carling Cup, with a 3-0 defeat against Wenger’s men fresh in Owen Coyle’s memory. Despite the comprehensive Arsenal win in the league, the personnel on show in this one will be significantly different as the French coach tries to blood in the stars of tomorrow.

With defeat in the final of the Carling Cup last season and the wait for a trophy expanding by the minute, Arsenal should take the competition seriously in an attempt to secure some silverware this season.

Arsenal v Marseille

A 1-0 win in France could well be the catalyst for a real turn in fortunes, as the players should take confidence and heart from an excellent win at the Stade Velodrome; the return fixture is on Tuesday 1st November in London.

Didier Deschamps’ men will be out for revenge, and will be no pushovers for the Premier League side. A win for Arsenal would all but guarantee progression through to the next stage of the competition, and despite some questionable performances domestically this term, form in Europe so far has been good.

Arsene Wenger stated that Group F was still a difficult proposition after the victory in France, but realistically Arsenal should be looking to top the pool due to the situation they find themselves in and the fixtures remaining.

  1. Finally 24 years later the all blacks take back the cup,not very convincing but its a win,betting rvp gets a hat trick,overall should be comfortable in the back without conceding.

  2. arsenal you are my life ,you are my heart,arsena you can win this bpl ,keep going with this spirit….

  3. M’Shity made my weekend what an lesson they (MANU) have learned was enjoying every moment of thrashing. I was laughing all through the 6 goal. Always had an gut felling that these the worst MANU side ever played under AF.

  4. Its hard to believe that manu lost 6-1 to man city,take nothing away from man city but every club uses manu as a measuring stick to compare themselves too,I really wish it was arsenal that gave that drubbing, I remember not long ago I was watching arsenal lose to manu by that you know what scoreline and my father (a manu fan) walk away, when it was 3 something becoz he couldn’t watch a far one sided match,so I guess he is feeling what we are feeling that day, manu is always a side that neva lose by a huge margin no matter what,but tell you da truth I don’t like man city becoz I dont like a side that will spend and replace every single player and still have classy players on the bench,they can say that
    we won that and this but that becoz of the huge wages that we are paid,I just don’t like football to be won by having money to spend there should be a mixture of everything good,middle and work in progress players.

  5. Almost the perfect day. We beat the potters and Keep creeping up the table. Chelsea go down to 9 and lose. The best implications are that neither Bosingwa or Drogba will be elligible to face us this weekend.And last but not least ManU(re) wind up on the whipping end of 6. If only SP*** would have gone down. Oh well, almost perfect.
    Two good finishes by Robin but let it not be lost in the shuffle that Gervinho scored the opener and set up the other two with pace and precision passing.
    The only thing that concerns me now is resting BFG,Kos and Santos. I don’t think that any of our regular EPL starters will figure mid-week in our cup tie with Bolton. But who will we play to rest our CB’s? Miquel Ignasi and who else?
    @The flyingdutchmen It was nice to see The All Blacks win but I expected a more Dynamic match. Stll, it was a good tourney and all of the players must be exhausted after it.
