Arsenal have conceded in their last 5 games whilst we haven't conceded any and haven't scored in only match (the match where we hit the woodwork twice and smashed over 6 yards). Sounds promising.

I dont think pace will be a problem for the defence in this game. Arsenal will try to pass pass pass all day as always. If they have Cuntegras back it will give them a lift, but without him, Hleb and Flamini in their midfield they have struggled.I'd be happy with a draw, but have a gut feeling we'll win.Having Riccy back would obviously be a massive boost for us, but if he's not 100% I wouldnt risk him in case of risking further damage. We have a busy Christmas period coming up and we'll need to have as many players available as possible.
