A Point For Sturridge & Suarez To Prove?

After they were muzzled by Arsenal last time and with their relatively poor record against the top three this season, it's a Big Weekend for Daniel Sturridge & Luis Suarez...

boggo, one swallow doesn't make a summer, mate. It's only a matter of time until the drip, drip, drip of Everton dropping down the table happens. Martinez is good but I don't think he has the same skill set as Moyes and the drive to push Everton to fourth (even with this stronger squad).

The strength of the squad has to be compared to Arsenal's direct competitors. Up front, Arsenal have Giroud, Bendtner and possibly Podolski. In comarison, Man City have Aguero (albeit injured at present), Dzeko, Negredo, Jovetic. Chelsea have Torres, Eto, and Ba. A similar comparison can be done for most positions, and Chelsea and Man City would more than likely have better replacements for the first team. Granted, if you compare Arsenal to say Leyton Orient, you can make a case for their being adequate cover. But compared to their direct rivals for the title, they have a weak squad, without question.

"These two sides (Tottenham/Everton) are outside bets to qualify for the Champions League, given the quality of the sides above them" Outside bets? quality of the sides above them?? Ok Man City and Chelsea are quality, we have already beaten Chelsea this season. Arsenal are not a million miles away from either Chelsea/City or on the flip side Everton/Tottenham. Liverpool pasted Everton 4-0 but are only 2 points above us and do not have the class in players to be in the same bracket as Chelsea/Man City, if anything they should be classed as outside bets also but for the media love-ins and pundits alike love to see the Pool in favourable headlines. crap, dismissive article.

Lack of depth? God some people are ignorant and just refuse to see what's in front of them. Arsenal have cover for every single position on the pitch. An England international as cover at right back, a Spanish international as cover at left back, a Belgian international as cover at centre back, about 8 international central midfielders, Podolski and Cazorla to choose from on the left, Oxlade Chamberlain or Gnabry to choose from on the right and Giroud is back up by Nicklas Bendtner, who whether you like him or not, has 24 goals in 56 games for Denmark and actually looked pretty good while flogging betting companies via his pants at the Euro's. If Arsenal mess this up it has absolutely nothing to do with 'a weak squad' and everything to do with a manager that can't quite beat competent teams and tactically astute managers when it matters.

Maybe I'm jaded from the last 8 years but I can see us being 4 points off the pace this time next week....

@sizemore - how did Liverpool deserve a point at Chelsea? Did you watch a different game to everyone else?

It's very Arsenal to drop out of all competitions in Feb / March. I can't see this season being any different. I expect that this weekend will mark the start of a fall in the league. This is a shame, since Wenger had ample opportunity to strengthen his squad and really challenge - especially in a year when Man City, Chelsea and Man U all had new managers. Alas, I think Arsenal fans will rue the lack of depth in the squad in a few weeks time.

I was going to point out how foolish the centre half comment was, but I see that has been done already. Instead I will simply remind you of the pass that Kolo played across his own box against Arsenal at the Emirates, intercepted by Giroud, and subsequently chipped wide. When it comes to Kolo mistakes, Anichibe>Giroud, it seems.
