It’s a big game today. Nerves aren’t what they were last year because Liverpool have been an absolute shower since losing Suarez and Sturridge. Last time we played them, we were destroyed in about 5 minutes. This time, you don’t sense there’s much danger of that happening… you do worry that Brendan might still have a plan that could unpick a depleted Arsenal side.
He’s going to opt for Sterling through the middle. This is a concern for two reasons, one, he’s a pretty exciting player. 2, we have Mertesacker and Chambers deputising through the centre (I’m guessing). One player is slow, the other loves a booking. Could be a bad combo if the Liverpool midfield can feed him in.
Our midfield is a looking very weak. Everyone is broken so we’ll have to rely on Flamini, Cazorla and Chamberlain to click. The front three of WELBZ, Giroud and Sanchez should be enough to cause Lovren a few problems.
Hopefully we’re not asleep when we kick off. Hopefully the boys are confident. Hopefully we walk away with a much needed three points. We need to keep touch with that top 4. A loss today really would put us in the wilderness with the wannabes.
There’s some hot rumours flying about. The one you need to stand up and pay attention to is German international Cristoph Kramer. He’s mostly famous for scoring a 45 yard own goal and getting knocked out in a World Cup final. He’s a Levurkusen player but Arsenal want him quite badly. The hope is we land him in January talks have been ongoing. Exciting. Hopefully some news will drop about the centre back we’re in for soon as well.
Right, not much to go after today. Have all the good times in the World and let’s hope we make it three wins on the bounce today!
