dortmund vs Arsenal   Leave a comment

Arsenal silence a quarter of their critic last saturday as they beat second place Liverpool 2-0 at the emirate. Among the yet to be won over is the Match of the Day pundit and former Premier League winner
has rubbished claims that the
Gunners can win the league,
stating that they haven’t played
one of the ‘big 3’ yet.
Dortmund face Arsenal this week in
what will be the second of their two
Champions League group stage
encounters, having emerged
victorious at the Emirates Stadium a
fortnight ago.
Klopp’s side did not have it all their
own way in London, with Arsenal
enjoying plenty of the ball and
creating numerous chances. However,
Dortmund’s high-intensity and
strength in transitions won through,
earning a 2-1 victory.
Arsenal will go into the intimidating
Westfalen Stadion confident they can
regain control of their Champions
League group.
Arsene Wenger’s team looked to be
cruising towards qualification for the
knockout round going into the home
clash with Borussia Dortmund.
Dortmund are in terrific form coming
in to this game on a back of a 6-1
drubbing of Stuttgart in the German
Bundesliga and Jurgen Klopp will look
to make the home advantage count
against a solid Arsenal side.
Arsenal have been a bit unpredictable
in their last couple games but will go
into this game with renewed
confidence after beating a strong
Liverpool side 2-0 in the League on
the back of defeats to Chelsea and
Dortmund at home in Cup competitions.
The lack of options in various areas
of the pitch for Arsene Wenger though
will be a huge concern for the
Gunners’ management going into this
midweek game.

Liverpool vs ARSENAL-Preview   Leave a comment

Arsenal in a couple of minute will be filling out in their 3rd game of this season’s premier league.
This game will be a real test for Arsenal’s defensive strength having not conceded neither corner nor goal. The promotion of Steve Bould has been the explanation pundits have given to this defensive improvement.
It is no longer news that the gunners are yet to find the back of the net after 180 minutes this season. Zanti Cardzola in midfield has been pulling some string but they are yet to translate into assist and goals. The pair of Podolski and Giroud in attack have started showing some spark which are yet to yield results.
Liverpool on the other hand lost their game and almost won against manchester city but for defensive error. This game will be interesting but Arsenal need goals.
