A first-rate process shallot and chicory tatin, younger greens, new potatoes with chestnut dressing by no means harm no one. But regardless of the virtually parodic gastronomic choices on the Emirates Stadium, and the nu-footy recognition, it has transform an intimidating position for away aspects. Only Manchester City have picked up extra league issues at house than Arsenal in each and every of the last two seasons, they usually had been once more spectacular in beating Manchester United on the weekend.
Arsenal’s house shape – and the bonus availability of Alexandre Lacazette – manner they’re the general public’s favourites to head thru to the last 8 of Europa League regardless of their Three-1 defeat in France per week in the past. Even the Rennes supervisor Julian Stephan thinks so. “Arsenal remain favourites given their past and their experience,” he sniffed. “The only thing I think is that we will need to score there, at least once, if not twice.”
At Fortress Emirates, that received’t be simple.
(Yes, it’s true, Arsenal went out of each this season’s home cups on their very own floor. But I’ve mentioned it 1000 occasions: we merely can not permit information to smash a excellent narrative!)
Kick off is at 8pm.
