Spurs' next 4 fixtures are a joke! LOL! It's as if they hand picked those exact fixtures to coincide with Kane's injury. :P

Tbh, they can make up a whole lot of ground on us in the next 4 fixtures with us having both Manchester clubs to play. Palace are always annoying to play against and are in good form as well.

WE WANT YOU TO STAY
WE WANT YOU TO STAY
ARSENE WENGER
WE WANT YOU TO STAY

Go on Arsene! Bring Arsenal to the same level Liverpool were in the past 5 years and divide your fan base even further!
Wenger is slowly turning into the villain at Arsenal where he once was a hero who changed their whole club.

The atmosphere here around their club is bad now. Imagine if its announced soon that he'll be staying on next season and they finish the rest of this season poorly. It'll be absolutely toxic.

PLEASE DO IT, ARSENAL!!!

Seriously, how can Wenger do this? Does he not feel a bit guilty? If he truly loves that club he should step down. He's embarrassing himself.

He loves his ego more, he is crazy stubborn, i read once that Fergie use to always value his coaching staff and there insight while Wenger just wanted yes men.

He's so engrained in everything at that club that when he does finally leave I hope it's worse than when Fergie left United. Hopefully all Wenger has worked for for 20+ years is left in a shambles when he goes.

Lets hope a Liverpool-esque period in the wilderness ensues! :D

You gotta think that Wenger must shirley be upset about the state over there right now. Now I detest their club and him but if it was any other manager I could have empathy on how he felt. Having had such a successful era to go into a long bland time must hurt, and he would want to put that right before he left. But as vinegar tits ego and stuborness rules his head lets hope it only gets worse for them.

There really cant be many of their supporters that would sign a petition begging him for 4 more years but I'd sign it.

REVEALED: Why Brexit could hurt Chelsea more than any other club

The government will trigger Article 50 today

 
BYDAVID DUBAS-FISHER
  • 10:27, 29 MAR 2017

http://www.football.london/chelsea-fc/news/revealed-brexit-could-hurt-chelsea-12812812

 

The United Kingdom's exit from the EU could impact Chelsea more than any other Premier League club.

Almost three quarters of the appearances made by the club’s players and more than three quarters of the goals that they have scored have been by players either from the EU or with an EU second nationality.

The government will trigger Article 50 today and formally begin the process of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union.

With EU nationals’ rights to continue to live and work in the UK yet to be agreed, football.london have taken a look to see which clubs could be most affected by a “hard Brexit.”

EU nationals have made a total of 222 Premier League appearances for Chelsea so far this season, more than for any other club.

A further 73 have been made by players who are from outside of the EU but have dual nationality from an EU country, such as David Luiz who is a Portuguese citizen as well as being Brazilian.

That works out at 273 appearances by players whose status could be impacted by a hard Brexit - almost three quarters (74%) of all Chelsea league appearances this season.

No other Premier League club has given a larger share of its total appearances to EU players.

It will come as no surprise then that a larger percentage of Chelsea’s goals have been scored by EU players than at any other club.

 

As many as 45 of the 58 league goals scored by Chelsea players this season (78%) have been scored by players either from the EU or with dual EU nationality.

Manchester City are one of the next most impacted clubs.

As many as 59% of their appearances have been made by players either from the EU or with EU dual nationality such as Sergio Aguero (Spanish). That’s the second highest percentage in the division.

They’re followed by West Ham (57%), Arsenal (54%) and Middlesbrough (53%).

In terms of goals, Boro are the second most affected team in the league after Chelsea.

As many as 74% of the league goals that their players have scored this season have been by EU nationals.

EU nationals have scored 71% of Manchester United’s league goals, 62% of Manchester City’s and 61% of Swansea’s.

Players from the Republic of Ireland have not been counted as EU nationals for this analysis as their status in the UK is protected by laws older than the EU.

Club: % appearances by EU nationals

  • Chelsea: 74%
  • Man City: 59%
  • West Ham: 57%
  • Arsenal: 54%
  • Middlesbrough: 53%
  • Man United: 51%
  • Liverpool: 50%
  • Watford: 50%
  • Tottenham: 49%
  • Swansea: 47%
  • Sunderland: 40%
  • Southampton: 36%
  • Leicester: 33%
  • Stoke: 29%
  • Everton: 25%
  • Crystal Palace: 24%
  • West Brom: 21%
  • Bournemouth: 10%
  • Burnley: 5%
  • Hull: 5%

OVERALL: 38%

West Brom with 14 headed goals, those stats are impressive, i wish we could score more goals from headers tough.

Everton have been shite here and as for Robles...his anticipation has been truly awful.

That is one of the worse footwork I have seen the from a gk. His footwork is so bad. He should have been able to save at least origi and Mane goals

He came running out for the Origi goal, there was no need what so ever to do that. As for the Coutinho goal he followed the ball and did not anticipate it coming through the legs, really bad game and bad decisions made by him today.
