The Arsenal Debate

van-persie

 

Why is it that Arsenal always plays their better football against the Big 4?

They have lost 5 league games this season; however they have beaten Man U and Chelsea.

In a nutshell, Arsenal plays good, free flowing football.

They are able to express this better against big teams because they too are trying to play good football.

This opens up gaps and the gunners are able to use the full extent of their attacking abilities.

However when they meet a side like Bolton who are happy to sit back most of the game, they are in trouble.

Hence the success of Chelsea, Liverpool and Man U, who are able to change their style to suit the opposition they are up against.

It seems that no matter the opposition, Arsenal refuse to change their style.

This culture is implemented into all the youngsters that are at the club.

However when you have William Gallas coming from a side like Chelsea, who is accustomed to ugly 1-0 victories, it makes things a little different.

It was only a matter of time till he got up and said something; obviously he is not used to this type of football.

Recent results have shown that against less favorable opposition, Arsenal have not been able to get the job done.

Wenger said it himself: “This season we have played better against the top four,” admitted Wenger at his pre-match press conference. “We cannot deny that because we lost against the teams who are not maybe favorites to play in the top four. Why? Maybe because they play a different type of football.
