Morning all.

If there’s a result which says no lead is big enough, it’s Luton’s 3-0 lead against Bournemouth on the south coast last night. How on earth could a team which is so desperate for points go on to crumble before losing 4-3? I strongly suspect the Bournemouth fans who booed their team off at half-time felt a bit stupid when the final whistle blew.

Arsenal play both Bournemouth and Luton at The Emirates before the season ends…

Tomorrow is another big day for Arsenal Football Club. In the morning the Champions League draw takes place and then in the evening, Arsenal’s women take on Chelsea in what is a massive game as far as the title chase goes. Kick-off at Stamford Bridge is at 7pm and it’s live on Sky Sports. Chelsea are probably favourites going into the game but we’re when they faced Man City a few weeks ago but that didn’t stop City taking all three points. A victory which ended a run of 22 home wins. Arsenal go into this game after a 1-0 victory over Totts, Chelsea, a 4-0 defeat of Leicester City.

Back to the Champions League and which clubs are left in the competition other than Arsenal?

Atletico Madrid (ESP)
Barcelona (ESP)
Bayern Munich (GER)
Borussia Dortmund (GER)
Manchester City (ENG)
Paris Saint-Germain (FRA)
Real Madrid (ESP)

I would say, which club do you hope we draw but to be honest, there’s very little between all of them. Atletico are likely to play a bit like Porto so at least we’ll be well prepared. lol

Seriously though, over two legs, anything can happen in a cup competition and if we are to get to Wembley, we’ll need to beat two of the above, three if we’re to lift the big trophy. Being the realist I am, I’m far from convinced we’ll get as far as Wembley because the other clubs have more experience of winning in Europe. Don’t get me wrong, our victory over Porto was fantastic but the clubs left in this competition are at a different level in my opinion. However, I would so love to be proved wrong.

Our squad is very good and pretty deep in strength at the moment but an injury to Saliba, Rice or Odegaard for example, could really derail our season. I know, the same could be said for any club challenging for a league title or cup but I don’t care about them. Arsenal have a lot of football to play before the 9/10th and 16/17th April – City away, Luton at home and the Brighton away. In between the two CL matches we play Aston Villa at home. plus there’s the wretched international break to get through too.

Still, one day at a time and one game at a time. Man City….
