Nine games. 27 points to be had. That's the task in front of Arsenal right now - not to win all nine, even though that would be amazing and fantastic and beautiful and a welcome repudiation of everything I've thought in the last month. The job is to get as many of those 27 points as they can, and to certainly get more than the 10 points they took from the last 27 points available to them.
In what can only be described as good news, Mathieu Flamini has been ruled out of this match with a hamstring problem, so that eases one of Wenger's selection dilemmas; everything else is status quo, with Ramsey, Cech, and probably Flam due back after the international break next weekend.
But, that's next weekend; this weekend is all about picking up spirits, figuring out what's left in the tank, and pushing hard to rebuild some good momentum in the league heading into the business end of the season.
