Here in the Transfer Tavern, we’ve been rather impressed with the start Arsenal have made to the season – one that sees them joint top with Manchester City going into this weekend’s game with a shaky looking Middlesbrough side.
However, our Gunners supporting punters propping up the bar know all top well that a good start doesn’t always in tail a great finish from the club.
Still, there’s undoubtedly a feeling that this year can be different for Arsene Wenger and his men.
Entering the final few months of his deal in north London, Le Prof looks to have constructed what is arguably his strongest side in years ahead of what could be one last tilt.
Writes itself, doesn’t it?
Though, as we well know, the Emirates giants rarely do anything the easy way.
We see no reason why this starting XI will SMASH Middlesbrough this Saturday.
