If our boys can replicate the score they posted away at Bolton on Sunday against the same team at home tonight, they will go top of the Premier League.
It’s almost unbelievable really, given the state we were in after the Chelsea loss. Yet it would thoroughly deserved after an eight-game unbeaten streak that has included six wins.
Given that we beat the same opponents away from home and have a better side available for this match it’s hard us failing to take our chance to jump from third to the top of the league.
Denilson should return to the side in place of young Craig Eastmond while Armand Traore’s mixed experience in the first team is likely to end with the return of Gael Clichy. The rest of the team should stay the same although the manager might take the opportunity to give the overworked Andrey Arshavin a rest for fit-again Theo Walcott or Carlos Vela.
This game is more a mental battle than anything else.
The boys will know a win will put them top and it’s vital they don’t get cold feet on a night where a big psychological message can be sent out to Chelsea and Manchester United. With a massively important run of games just around the corner it’s vital we keep the momentum going and more importantly, collect the three points on offer.
Not much more to say really except COME ON ARSENAL!
