Facing a huge task in the Champions League away at Bayern Munich in just 45 minutes’ time, at least Arsenal fans head to Bavaria with hope having inflicted defeat on the team many believe to be the world’s best right now back on gameweek three.
With the Gunners going fantastically well in the Premier League at the minute, there is renewed belief that Arsenal can indeed plot a route back out of Group F at the right end of the four-team table rather than succumbing to Europa League fate or worse, out of European competition altogether.
That said, a defeat in Germany tonight would be a third out of four games played so far and would pretty much leave Arsenal in tatters.
According to some Gooners in the tavern, they claim that being out of European competition altogether may bode well for their league form and it’s hard to disagree with Arsenal’s injury problems surely being lessened if they’re only playing one game a week instead of two.
But with it being a dangerous game to place all of your eggs in one basket in this way, no Arsenal fan in the tavern is hoping their team lose tonight with a draw being looked on as a good result ahead of the two remaining fixtures against Dinamo Zagreb at home and Olympiakos away.
With Arsenal again down to the bare bones following Aaron Ramsey, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott’s injuries, yet still coping, their first team squad is rather narrow but today, we’ve still devised a list of five Gunners stars who could be facing an axe in the January transfer window.
