Gunners and Gunnerettes, this is the Match Preview of Arsenal vs Chelsea at the Emirates. Before going straight off the bat to our game I must say a great 6-1 win against Coventry. It was expected though; the latter stages will be more of a test. Arshavin finally answered my question. Giroud did well too. But Nico Yennaris and Francis Coquelin, watch out for these two- mark my words , these guys are future superstars. Oxlade-Chamberlain (‘Chambo’) thumped one into the top corner, well done lad. That’s about enough with the Capital One Cup now back to Chelsea.
I’m sorry if I scared you but Drogba is not coming back to haunt us anymore. But it’s actually a pity; I would have loved to see him go against this Bould-ered up defence. He is not our problem anymore, that costly winger from Belgium, the Bio Hazard, I mean Eden Hazard is. He is the one we need to watch out for. Both he and Mata will be the first ones to genuinely test Gibbs and Corp. Jenkinson because let’s face it, Man City play more centrally unless Milner is on the pitch and no other team has tested our wings yet. Obi Mikel is nowhere near the likes of Essien, so Cazorla should find his ways. Podolski should show his worth in this match I feel, only then the demons of losing one RvP will be banished (If you remember, his display at Stamford Bridge won us the enthralling 5-3 match).
Team line up:
GK: Mannone (Go on son, make us proud … No fumbles today, aiite?).
DEF: Gibbs, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Corp. Jenkinson (They had a good rest this week, let’s hope they are fresh and ready for battle. Per needs some more rest. Bless that gentle German giant).
MID: Diaby, Arteta, Cazorla, Ramsey/Walcott, Gervinho (Diaby will play a massive role in this game, Arteta solid as always, Cazorla the same, Gervinho needs to put on his shooting boots and both Ramsey and Walcott need to prove their consistency. That is the only factor keeping these two talented players from taking it to the next level).
ATT: Podolski (Use that thunderbolt power from your left foot son!).
Possible substitutions: If there are no cards or injuries, Ramsey/Walcott and Giroud will feature later on. Maybe even Arshavin hopefully, he deserves a chance. Santos could come in if we are a few goals up.
Score Prediction: This is what most of you have been waiting for. A 3-1 or 3-2 win to the Arsenal. We will HAVE to make this statement today and on Nov. 3 against United.
