Feels like we need to get something out of this game but I'm not overly confident.

I'm much more concerned about getting a positive result next Thursday evening.
I would prefer a win over Arse although it is somewhat unlikely.

Heart says nil nil, head says 4-0 sadly. Carlos to gift wrap at least one goal.

This is only going one way.
Our task is to control the goals against.

I'm much more concerned about getting a positive result next Thursday evening.

If we had seen out the Brentford game and got the 3 points, I might be less concerned but if we want to overtake Spurs again I feel like we can't drop too many more points.

I'm not sure our result against Arsenal will determine whether we finish above Spurs, I think we'll need them to struggle in their 5 tough games to do so. The best thing we can do is progress against Lille to give us the best chance of helping ensure that 5th means CL football. Even a draw against Arsenal combined with exiting Europe will leave us feeling pretty deflated this time next week. Having said that, Newcastle beating Spurs tomorrow would get the week off to a positive start.

It won't determine if we finish above them, but we've already handed them the advantage, and getting nothing from Arsenal (meaning 1 point from a possible 9 recently) just kills our challenge outright, I think.

I do think that when the dust settles, even winning Conference and getting Europa next season, while finishing 5th, would be a fantastic season. I've said before, other than the financial benefits, I'm not overly fussed about CL. I think we've just been in 4th for so long that it's going to sting a little to see Spurs finish there.

True, too few clean sheets kept this season.

Normally try to be positive but the only good thing about tomorrows match is that 'it will be out of the way'. Our run in compared to Spurs will then look a lot rosier.

We have too many good players missing, they are better rested and almost at full strength.

3-0 Arses  :(

They never seem to have many injuries and not the main players Rice (kamara) , Martin Ødegaard(Buendia)  William Saliba (Mings)  Saka ( Ramsay)  .

Well If they was missing those four they wouldnt even be top 6 so very lucky season for them.

Not looking forward to this one , I actually thought we could get a result against M115ty until I saw the team so no idea who Unai will play , not that he has a lot of choices.

Going to be hard , keep the score down please . I could see us taking the lead actually but we dont clean sheets .  3 1  .

Yes, but we’re only playing Arsenal so not going to settle for a draw are we?

A win would be huge, but a boring 0-0 draw wouldn't hurt either.
