Once again, the Barclays Premier League has had yet another twist, with Manchester United’s draw yesterday against Newcastle giving Arsenal food for thought ahead of their North London derby encounter.
It seems as if it won’t just be the hunger to win the derby that will spur Arsenal on to a win, but it is also now desire to once again cut points of Manchester United’s lead as Manchester United were left to rue two points lost against Tyneside club, Newcastle United.
But the Spurs will certainly be up for it as well, with them chasing a possible (yet unlikely) Champions League place for next season following their successful short spell among the elite clubs this season. Eboue looks most likely to be not in the squad, with his costly mistake against Liverpool FC on the weekend probably demoting him to the subs bench, if not the reserves.
But Sczcesny will certainly be up for it, as he thinks that he has the number 1 spot at Arsenal firmly at his grasp, and with his assured display at the Emirates against Liverpool FC, it doesn’t seem to be a surprise why that’s so.
This Premier League seems to have had a long season so far, with Chelsea building an apparently ‘unassailable’ lead early on in the season before they dropped off the pace whilst chasing Champions League glory.
