I guess we should play our second string team and give a break to our first team who have been playing back to back matches.

Dangerous, but at the same time might be better as we are forever destined to underachieve against that pack of brutes. Give the youngsters a chance and do a Mourinho (if we win: "shows how strong our youngsters are", if we lose: "well, we did play our youngsters!").

Win-win. Except for losing three points.

Last time they got anything from playing us at home was in Islington, 1981 where they snatched a point.

Can't see us losing this.

All credit to Wenger for finally getting the team to play as a unit, adapting to the opposition, and putting immense pressure on Stoke through most of the game. There was a little dip in concentration around the 75-85 minute mark but that's not really anything to be annoyed about.

Urgency was great, pressing was great, attitude was fantastic. Every single player had a good game. Sanchez obviously man of the match, but I though Oxlade-Chamberlain had a great game, so did Coquelin.

For once it wasn't the opposition making us look good, but vice versa.

Been a while since I've seen them close a game as early as the 65th min mark.
