Chelsea (h) 29th October
Liverpool (h) 2nd November
Dortmund (a) 6th Nov
Man Utd (a) 10th Nov
At the moment it is a great time to be an Arsenal fan. After the loss to Aston Villa where the majority of Arsenal fans were asking for the resignation of Arsene Wenger and the board, everything has gone well. The signing of Ozil and Flamini have really helped the team progress further.
No team in England has more points in the premier league than Arsenal in 2013. Arsene Wenger talks about consistency all the time and Arsenal have shown this in 2013.
Arsenal have been terrific so far but we will find out how far Arsenal have come between the 29th of October to the 10th of November. Firstly Chelsea in the League Cup, followed by Dortmund in the Champions League, sandwiched in-between Liverpool and Manchester United in the Premier League. Considering there is another international break after the Man Utd match it is a vital 2 weeks for the Gunners.
Can Arsenal Wenger play his strongest team in all 4 games? Probably not, but it will be interesting to see which games Wenger sees as more important to his season. The League Cup game will probably consist of the same team that played West Brom in the previous round. Considering the wealth of talent Arsenal have in midfield, rotation should not be a problem, however it is vital Giroud is fit for games against Liverpool, Dortmund and Man Utd. If Arsenal can get through these 2 weeks without any defeats, Arsenal will be in a great position to win a trophy this season.
These are my predictions for the 4 games:
WIN: Arsenal 2 – 1 Chelsea (AET)
Draw: Arsenal 2 – 2 Liverpool
Draw: Dortmund 1 – 1 Arsenal
WIN: Man Utd 1 – 3 Arsenal
What are yours?
