If we lose the match tomorrow, we’ll fall 9 points behind Chelsea. And we know how Manchester United’s playing right now under Ole Gunnar, so that’s leaving us in 6th place.
Emery thinks a loss would create too much of a deficit to make top 4 and says Arsenal will play all the can against Chelsea.
We have suffered three defeats in our last six Premier League games and the last flog against West Ham United hasn’t flattered our chances at even a Europa League spot; especially with United on our tails.
Mesut Özil has mentioned on social media that he is fit and ready to play. It’s every Gunners hope that at some point, Unai Emery will play him and that given the opportunity, Özil will show his creative brilliance and not disappear as he’s wont to do sometimes.
Emery, according to All Football, has warned the players about Eden Hazard who he rates as one world class.
[su_quote cite=”Unai Emery” url=”https://www.arsenal.com”]”He (Hazard) has been the difference in a lot of matches. We need to concentrate on all of their players and not let them play against us with their personality. Hazard is one of the top five players in the world.”[/su_quote]
We used to have a sure-banker in Aubameyang, but he’s become a bit goal shy. We’re hoping that he and Lacazette and Özil (if he plays), will spare us blushes against the lot from west end.
On the other side, Chelsea are about closing the deal for Higuain to move from Juventus on loan. What’s that going to do to Olivier Giroud’s playing chances? Your guess is as good as mine.
