That’s all you need to know prior to today’s game, a match that Wenger attests is as important as the Juventus one next week. I see what he’s doing there – trying to avoid the danger of our players, who are undoubtedly thinking about Tuesday, taking their eyes off the proverbial ball today. Win it and we keep the pressure on the other Championsleaguewannabes, which is crucial. With trickier games to come than this, we can’t afford to drop any points. It can’t be said any simpler than that. Well, it probably could. “Win” would suffice.
A victory would also be our fourth league victory in a row and our second away win in a row, both of which would be firsts in this fractured league season.
That’s all, for now, fellow rip-roaring reds fans.
