Carl Jenkinson: Confident of defeating Everton following goalless draw at Aston

Carl Jenkinson: Confident of defeating Everton following goalless draw at Aston

The Gunners seem to have solved their defensive crisis this term but struggled to break down a resilient Villa side on Saturday.

And while clean sheets are important for the young full-back, three points are vital in their "huge" encounter at Goodison Park.

"Villa played well but we need to try and nick a goal and need to try and pick up the three points in games like that," said Jenkinson.

"We kept a clean sheet and that's important. We just need to go on a little run, a good unbeaten run.

"I think clean sheets are important. Nine times out of 10, if you keep a clean sheet, you go on to win the game. In the main, we haven't conceded a lot of goals this season.

"I think we're up there as one of the best, in terms of goals conceded. We go into every game to win it. On Saturday it wasn't meant to be but we've got a huge game against Everton.

"There's no hiding, we need to win that. It's a massive game for us. We're on a good little run now, but we need to pick up three points on Wednesday and I'm confident we'll do that."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
