It’s fair to say that it is squeaky bum time for Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern.
With the season ending Sunday and just two games remaining in the season, the Gunners need either Manchester City or Liverpool to slip up before the end of the season in order to have a chance of making the top four, and guaranteeing Champions League football next season.
Failure to do so will see Arsenal fans in the Tavern most Thursday nights next season to see their side in the Europa League.
Furthermore, the future of boss, Arsene Wenger is no certain than a couple months ago and although contract talks with Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil will resume in the summer – it is still an uncertain time for all involved at the Emirates Stadium.
With all these distractions around, the Gunners must keep focus on their top four ambitions and that will start tonight against a relegated Sunderland side who have been majorly disappointing this season.
When these two sides met earlier in the season at the Stadium of Light, Alexis Sanchez’s opener was cancelled out by a Jermain Defoe penalty, before the Gunners fired in three goals in nine minutes via another Alexis goal and an Olivier Giroud double.
It was a strong XI that took the field for the Gunners will need an XI of similar strength to really put the Black Cats to the sword in this one.
Let’s take a look at who our landlord feels Wenger should pick for this one….Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
