Monday 22 January 2023 Ashburton Grove USA TV: NBC 11:30am ET What are the odds of us being where we are??! We sit ATOP the Prem... after 18 games... with a 5pt lead... and 1 game in hand Our best-ever first-half of a season Having lost this season’s transformational, talismanic CF for months We’ve got the 2nd best defense, after only... Newcastle +28 GD... only 2 fewer than he mighty(?) Citeh Citeh showed 45' of life today but have dropped 15pts (we’ve dropped just 7pts) Pool & Chelsea sit 9th & 10th... a full 19pts behind us A month ago I was pinching myself, but no more! It’s real now. And so, Sunday is the biggest match of the season so far, where the 2 strongest teams on current form face off. OK, OK, that’s enough magnanimous credit... we should wipe the floor of that ManUre! They had to play midweek at Palace where they dropped 2 points in injury time, while losing Casemiro to suspension. No presser, no team news from Mikel yet, maybe tomorrow.. But nearly everyone was present in today’s training video https://www.arsenal.com/news/inside-training-gearing-man-united, EXCEPT for Saka & Xhaka who hopefully were just given a day off to rest a knock or weary legs. And to answer one question about odds? The bookies clearly see us winning Sunday, 2X more likely to do so than the Mancs are. Time to walk through another door that’s ajar!
