This is a good sign for the Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern…
Our landlord is expecting a full house in the Football Transfer Tavern this Saturday as our punters settle in for one of the biggest fixtures of the year.
On Saturday evening Chelsea and Arsenal will face off in what is sure to be a fiery affair, with both sides looking to put down a marker ahead of a busy few months for the pair.
Both sides have started well, albeit with a couple of minor blips, and both managers will be looking to get a head start on their rivals.
However – there is one foreboding statistic ahead of the game that has got the Arsenal fans in the Football Transfer Tavern concerned about the game.
It was recently announced that Michael Oliver would referee the game. Normally, a referring announcement is a non-event in the Tavern – but this one drew up quite a noise from the Arsenal section of the room.
The reason for that is, quite shockingly, Arsenal are WINLESS in their last 8 Premier League games that have been officiated by Michael Oliver.
To make matters worse, as the Tweet below reveals – Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 13 games with the referee in charge – leaving real cause for concern amongst the Arsenal faithful.
See the full tweet below…
Our landlord is never one for statistics, but this is some record for Arsenal to contend with this weekend.
Of course – it is just a coincidence – but it is worth bearing in mind in preparation of the huge game this weekend.
Arsenal fans – thoughts? Are you worried about this?
