Arsene Wenger want to win tomorrow.
He wants to win so we don’t have to go through the ball ache of a horrible qualifier.
Last year, we had to go to Turkey without our best players.
“Last year, for example, we played against Besiktas without Mesut Ozil and Per Mertesacker, because they were on their holidays.
“But at the moment we are focused on finishing as high as we can and finishing the season well. After that we will deal with the consequences.
“We know we are in the top four. We know we can do better. So let’s go for it.”
This year, if we finish fourth, we’d have to go without Sanchez. No one needs that type of headache.
It’s important we win tomorrow so we can show the league we’re made of stronger stuff. It’s also important, because it closes down the excuse of ‘we haven’t bought players because of Champions League qualification’.
I do hope we’re going to have a positive summer of transfers. United are already ploughing away bringing in new names, hopefully we’re working on things in the background as well. Juventus have signed Dybala already, really upsetting news.
I’m still not sure how we’re going to play against United. They’ve given us a big boost by declaring Wayne Rooney and Luke Shaw unfit. Robin is available, but he’s not the Robin of old. Which is good. I’d love to keep him quiet all game.
United currently sit two points behind us, but we have a game in hand. We have to hope City trip up, because it’s unlikely we’re going to be able to make up the 9 goals we need to add to beat them for goal difference.
More from me tomorrow, have a grand Saturday!
