It's a quick blog today, so I'll quickly touches on a few points that Arsene's made today:
“Of course there is a burning desire to put that [record] right,” he said.
This season, the FA Cup is a priority and Arsene explains why:
“But I believe in 2006 we went very far in the Champions League so it was important to sacrifice the FA Cup, and last year we were in the Premier League race until very late.
“You can see this season that Liverpool, for example, did not play over the weekend but did very well against Real Madrid and then Manchester United. But they had a breather of 10 days before those games because they did not play in the FA Cup. Sometimes the run in the FA Cup conflicts with other interests.”
And on the previous defeat, Arsene said:
“It was one of the low points of the season. But it is not the only one. When you are 4-2 up against Tottenham and they come back to 4-4, when you are 2-0 up at Villa but then they come back – they are low points too. Still it was a very disappointing day [against Hull] because if we won that game we would have gone top of the League. And I don’t want to take anything away from Geovanni’s goal – or Cousin’s header – they were absolutely fantastic. But we could have closed him down easily.”
So…….. time for revenge? Let’s do it, let’s win tonight at the Emirates and put the memories behind us!]]>
