The Super Sunday build up in the media is getting to you…If Chelsea and Liverpool win, then Chelsea will be tied at the top with Arsenal, Manchester United a point less and Liverpool will be 4 points behind with a match in hand. If this situation happens then the top four would be really the tightest in the last few years. And if Arsenal and Manchester United win they will move away from the 3rd and 4th placed teams and would be, I can say in a comfortable position come this stressful part of the season.
Fabregas trained with the team on Friday suggesting his return for the big one with Chelsea on Sunday. I hope Wenger doesnt push him in the starting XI if he is notfully fit. Maybe he can be in the bench and unless and otherwise he is required not pushed to play. Hleb looks less likely to figure in this match at any stage and Flamini looks more certain to be the one who will be seen in action. I think with Diaby they will make the central mid-field much stronger than the team put out against Boro. Van Persie will start upfront with Adebayor andwith Bendtner inthe bench, I will not complain about the attack side of the team. And in defence we have the steady presence of Sagna, Toure, Gallas and Clichy.
Chelsea will miss the physical presence of Drogba and though I dont underestimate Shevchenko I think he can be taken care off by Toure and Gallas. If you remember the last time we were winning against Chelsea, the equaliser was scored by one Mr.Essien, a screamer of a shot, which beat a stretched out Lehmann. With Essien missing, guys like Lampard and Kalou will have to step and I think because of this Arsenal have a chance to take all the three points. And I hope they do.
Liverpool-Man Utd looks like a very tight match and I dont think this will be a boring draw either. The top 4 teams have realised that they are getting the results against the other sixteen teams in the league and it is very crucial to see how they play against each other this season. A win is priceless and a draw is a good result. I cannot see any of these teams sitting back and waiting for the other to attack.
All football fans in KL are going to have a lovely time watching the Super Sunday matches as there have been some very interesting viewing parties announced. I will be with the rest of the Arsenal supporters in Sunway Lagoon Amphitheatre to watch the match at 12 midnight here. This event is sponsored by Maxis and Carlsberg . Entry is free, so all the more reason to be there. So have a great time watching the game and may the best team win and may that best team be Arsenal!!!
