ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE GAME REVIEWS
ARSENAL VS SOUTHAMPTON. 5PM LOCAL TIME
This fixture has seen history being written all over again and again .It all started with Thierry Henry scoring his first goal after eight games that is after he had joined the club.
Dennis Bergkamp also scored his first Arsenal goal after joining the club.
So everyone has set his eyes on this game to see if a new Arsenal striker will score his first goal after three starts.
The new boy Giroud has been holding his head in frustration and many are waiting to see if he can spread those hands in celebration.
The saints are also looking for their first win but they will have to put up with the on form Arsenal players.
In another development,the Arsenal manager has been awarded a new contract and many of the London fans are not happy with this saying that the Frenchman needs to win the club a trophy before this can be gratified.
However the Frenchman says he is waiting on signing a new contract.
The question after the first 2 Arsenal games was when will Arsenal score but the question has now changed to when will Arsenal concede.
Prediction 1:0 for Arsenal
This game last season saw Sir Alex Ferguson’s men lose to Wigan and also lose the title to the noisy neighbors.
However this time round the red devils have acquired the Dutch striker who is in impeccable form that he seems to have transferred from Arsenal.
There was a scare that the Dutch striker was to miss the game after he got a slight knock on the thigh but Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that he will be fit to play.
Japanese international Shinji Kagawa will also feature in the game and the red devils will be looking to revenge on that sole goal that was scored by Shawn Maloney.
Though Wigan will come with the motivation that they can do it again.
The Chelsea skipper is accused of racially abusing Rio Ferdinand’s brother a case that the Chelsea captain was acquainted in court.
However bad blood is still boiling between the two players. However in the context of the game, this fixture was one of those games that saw Fernando Torres net a hatrick for Chelsea last season.
By the mere fact that this is a London derby,it will be a tight game to predict but I believe Chelsea will come out victors after a successful start to the season.
