Friendly thrashing, Saka returns.

Tomi signs!! Dechamps down on Saliba..

Morning all. I made an error. Thomas Partey hasn’t gone off on international duty. Neither has Gabriel as he’s withdrawn because of injury. If you say so Gabriel…. Not for one minute do I think Gabriel is injured, I think this is the player and Arsenal seeing the...

Home And Away.

Morning all. It’s looking like a Manchester derby for the FA Cup final in May. No disrespect to Coventry but I can’t see them beating Manchester Utd in the semi-final although I hope they do of course. Man City should in theory be too good for Chelsea. I watched some...
