England take on Iceland tonight at Wembley. A dead rubber I think after Gareth Southgate’s team were defeated by Belgium in their last match. I’m not even sure what this Nations League is all about and to quite honest, I’m not that interested either. England are only worth watching when one of our guys are playing which in Saka and AMN, might be tonight although I hope they don’t, especially Saka. Tonight though should give Arsenal fans the chance of seeing Alex Rúnarsson in action which is a rarity since his arrival at the club.
Quite nice to see both cups Arsenal have recently won and hopefully as the years go by, Mikel Arteta and his players will win more and start competing for the big one in England. The Premier League title although we’re a long way from that right now. I did think Liverpool would run away with the title again this season but as things look now, it could be any one of the teams in the top half of the table who end up lifting the big trophy.
Arsenal are six points off the top spot, level on points with Man City, two ahead of Man Utd which just goes to show what a weird season this is so far. We’ve already played City, Liverpool and Utd away from home too which can only be a good thing.
If Mikel Arteta can get a response from his players in the next game, Arsenal might suddenly click and start playing better football. More high energy with quicker passing between the team.
It seems Willian has breached the Covid restrictions within the last week by travelling outside of England. He’ll need a negative Covid test before he’s given the all clear to play on Sunday. One might be tempted to change that sentence because he’s looking like a disaster signing right now. An expensive one at that. Pepe too, yet we know they can do better. Mikel Arteta has to find a way to get them playing better. I’ve not seen anything about Partey in relation to his injury. The thought of going to Leeds with Xhaka back in midfield is concerning, or is that unfair? After all, he was in midfield when Arsenal won both the FA and Charity Shield..
See you in the comments guys.
