Bwoy! Can't call this one. Vanilla favourites? Depends on what team we put out and how we start. Draw would be decent enough. Hope to see Ramsey start in the middle.

draw would be a good result (and i'll take that now) BUT a draw is not good enough if we want to stay in touch (or even in the top 4)!

COME ON ARSENAL!!!!!!!!

I see what you mean about getting a win over there to stay in touch. But a draw wouldn't be a bad result. Who knows, if we can play with the chutzpah we showed with 10 men against the Scouse we should get a favourable result.
We all know the defence probably has to be even more diligent with Agbonlahar and Young, but our midfield needs to cover some grass and get their game right. Midfield battle will be where it's won or lost.

This was always going to be a very hard match even before losing Fabregas and Adebayor. I can't see our midfield being strong enough and that will put extra pressure on our less than perfect defence. Young and Agbonlahor will be posing a threat all the time so lets hope that we can cope with them. I think that our best chance could come from the team feeling like underdogs and being spurred on to extra efforts. We are going to need real commitment for the whole 90 minutes.
