After a great win over local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal head to the West Midlands to take on ”on fire” Leicester City in a Premier League clash that should be a good one, especially when you consider Leicester who have not faltered as of yet so far in the campaign whereas Arsenal have been defeated twice by West Ham and Chelsea so does that mean that Leicester are the favorites? I don’t think so and that’s not because I’m an Arsenal fan…it’s simple really…every team has to lose eventually and Leicester will lose sooner or later and I think that Arsenal can be the team to do it, albeit it will not be an easy game, far from it…the last time we went here…it was a draw…they almost had us in that game and they are better this time around!
Chelsea defeated Arsenal 2-0 the last time and Leicester came back from a close defeat to get a well earned draw at Stoke! however momentum returned to Wenger’s team as they beat Spurs earlier this week. News conference with Arsene Wenger bellow.
Injury wise for Arsenal sees Wilshere, Welbeck and Rosicky still sidelined with injuries and it appears that Coquelin could miss the game as well however Cazorla is likely to return after his sending off at Chelsea whereas Gabriel will miss the game after receiving a one match ban, what a shame.
Squad I’d Like To See
Bellerin, Koscielny, Monreal, Mertesacker
Flamini, Cazorla, Ozil, Sanchez, Ramsey
I predict a 2-1 win for Arsenal but at the same time, I have a sneaky feeling that Leicester could pull one over us and get the win, I mean they are in hot form at the moment and doesn’t look like they could slow down any time soon! I want 3 points obviously and it’d be a great feeling to be the first team to beat Leicester! I don’t want to lose before the upcoming International Break! A win is needed to keep morale up and not go into the break with a loss…so we need a win or at the very least a draw but I would very much prefer a win by a million miles. We must believe before we can prevail
Prediction: Leicester 1 Arsenal 2
COME ON ARSENAL!
