    So, after the brilliant set of results last week, would it be too much to hope for more of the same? :D

    Really hoping for an Arsenal win at Spurs, draw at worst. Combine that with a win at Southampton and we could be looking at a 5 point gap to Spurs. This is the 3rd time we've had an opportunity to do it (banking on other results too of course) so let's hope it's 3rd time lucky.

    I think we can edge Southampton 1-2.

    Should be comfortable wins for Chelsea, City and United though there's always hope that El Rafa can pull something off.

    There is zero chance Newcastle will remain unbeaten against Utd. They might not be relegation strugglers but they are an awful team and Utd don't possess a Mignolet, Lovren or a Moreno to change the inevitable.

    Nice attempt at a jinx.
    Newcastle raise their games when they play us.

    Don't know what to think about today's game. Its an away game, but Arsenal have a great record at Wembley, won 9 out of the 11 matches we played there. Also the fact that its a derby would mean that form goes out the window. This match should set the expectations for the rest of the season. Win, and we can see arsenal going on a run. Lose, and its the same old, same old. Expect Liverpool to drop points at Southampton(score draw) and Utd, Chelsea, City to have victories with varying degrees of comfort.

    Mourinho actually has a pretty terrible record at Newcastle from his Chelsea days.

    Sadly so do I. Written in the stars. We took most of their players, they're in a relegation scrap and need the points. Almost inevitable.


    As for Spurs and Arsenal, a draw would be nice.

    Defensive lineup from Wenger. Not like him.

    Will be a lot of pressure of Mkhi and Ozil to bring them forward and create. Not much pace other than Auba.

    Expecting Ozil and Mkhitaryan to do some defensive work?

    Very very risky.

    So what formation will arsenal put out with those players? 4-3-3 with Mkhi and Ozil wide forwards?

    Will Mkhi turn up in a big game or is he going to disappear as per usual? He can't play as badly as he did vs Liverpool and Chelsea that's for sure.

    Arsenal win or maybe a draw here for us. Draw would be good; don't particularly want to see Arsenal win

    If he at least puts in some effort today it'll be better than his performances against Liverpool and especially Chelsea this season for Utd.

    Surprising that Alderweireld is not even on the bench, seeing as he played mid-week. Perhaps Poch is easing him back in slowly and saving him for Juve - I hope so.

    How’s Lacazette doing for Arsenal? Wasn’t he their record signing.

    It's just Martin Keown trying to peddle that nonsense isn't it?

    Rio seems pretty realistic about it all. Their defence and midfield is still no where near good enough.

    Not just Martin Keown.
    You only have to look at AFTV post-match reviews to realise it's the entire fanbase.
    Why do you think Wenger has lasted so long?
    Arsenal fans have impressive reserves of optimism and short-term memories.

    That midfield and defense of Arsenal is an absolute abomination, no amount of Aubas is going to change this fact.

    Spurs will have only themselves to blame if they don’t put them away.
