Arsène Wenger is relishing Arsenal’s “biggest week of the season”.
Arsenalwon 4-1 at Wigan on Saturday then saw Everton draw with Aston Villa the following day to leave Wenger’s men with an eight-point cushion to fifth place.
On Wednesday they can secure a place the Champions League Semi-Final if they manage to beat Villarreal at Emirates Stadium, even a no score draw would be enough to see Arsenal through. Then on Saturday Arsenal face London rivals Chelsea at Wembley in the last four of the FA Cup.
It is going to be a cracking, pressure-filled few days – and that is just how Wenger wants it.
“Yes,” he replied at Wigan when asked if it was the most important week of the campaign so far, “but I love that personally.
“There is always big tension in there at these times and we want to deal well with it. If you don’t have the tension then you go for nothing. I feel this is a big chance to have that in front of us now.”
This is defiantly one of those weeks that define your season one way or another. And hopefully we will see performances like the second half at Wigan, and not the first!
Up the GUNNERS!!!
