Arsenal badly need these four players to

be fit for the remaining games:

Oxlade, Koscielny, Sanchez and Giroud.


Saturday’s visitors Liverpool will be without Skrtel, their best defender, and Gerrard.

Sturridge, Lallana and Lovren are now all fit..

Coutinho will have to play a blinder but Liverpool look strong enough to disrupt Arsenal’s smooth-passing rhythm.

Therefore this Saturday’s lunchtime clash could be a tight and scrappy high-tempo battle.

But I’m expecting Arsenal to win to win by two goals, or maybe one.

Even though Raheem Sterling is a far better footballer than Theo Walcott .


And it now looks like Raheem will leave and join a London club.

He is, after all, a London boy.

I think Sterling should stay at Liverpool for two more years at least.

But I don’t expect most footballers to show gratitude or loyalty.

Raheem’s apparently said: You should have signed me last summer.

I’ts now Easter with 30 games played and 8 to go.

I’ve really enjoyed this break because it’s given me time to breathe.

Liverpool 1 Man United 2 seems like… months ago.

PS.  Paul Scholes also thinks it’s too soon for Sterling to leave Anfield.

Scholesy says Raheem should stay and score more goals for Liverpool before choosing the right moment to move on.
