What's at stake: A win this morning puts Arsenal in second place until at least Monday, when Manchester City travels to Crystal Palace. A loss or a draw slides Arsenal below Manchester United in the table, and given that United hosts Aston Villa earlier today, a bailout's probably not happening.
What the boss says: In response to a pre-game interview asking if there's anyone on the opposition he'll be watching, Barclays Manager of the Month mentioned Philippe Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge, and Raheem Sterling, and resisted the urge to say, "Yes, and we'll buy him and pay him more than £100,000 pounds this summer per those stories his agent planted in the media!"
Prediction: Because I don't want these good times to end, 3-2 to the Arsenal, but it feels it's going to have (like in their last meeting) a testy, late-match dimension to the proceedings.
