Arsenal’s revival after a slow start to the 2011-12 campaign seems thoroughly underway, as Arsene Wenger’s men have improved in recent weeks. Fixtures against Bolton, Chelsea and Marseille in three different competitions await The Gunners’ next, with a chance to stake a claim in all three tournaments.
Chelsea v Arsenal
The Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 29th October is one that will test the new look Arsenal side, as Andre Villas Boas’ men are in-form and looking like title contenders. With the passion and intensity of a London derby new to some of the summer additions to the Gunners’ squad, Wenger will count on the likes of Robin van Persie and Aaron Ramsey to lead by example.
The Emirates outfit have the quality to go to The Bridge and get a result, but must start well and defend in a more organised and compact fashion to deny the likes of Juan Mata space.
Tickets for this high profile clash are still available; you can purchase Arsenal tickets online from TicketBis, with the prices for this game starting at £223.60.
Arsenal v Bolton
Bolton travel to the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday 25th October in the Carling Cup, with a 3-0 defeat against Wenger’s men fresh in Owen Coyle’s memory. Despite the comprehensive Arsenal win in the league, the personnel on show in this one will be significantly different as the French coach tries to blood in the stars of tomorrow.
With defeat in the final of the Carling Cup last season and the wait for a trophy expanding by the minute, Arsenal should take the competition seriously in an attempt to secure some silverware this season.
Arsenal v Marseille
A 1-0 win in France could well be the catalyst for a real turn in fortunes, as the players should take confidence and heart from an excellent win at the Stade Velodrome; the return fixture is on Tuesday 1st November in London.
Didier Deschamps’ men will be out for revenge, and will be no pushovers for the Premier League side. A win for Arsenal would all but guarantee progression through to the next stage of the competition, and despite some questionable performances domestically this term, form in Europe so far has been good.
Arsene Wenger stated that Group F was still a difficult proposition after the victory in France, but realistically Arsenal should be looking to top the pool due to the situation they find themselves in and the fixtures remaining.
