Arsenal are currently having one of their best season starts of the past decade. The team is working well and even if some big players are out with injuries, the Gunners still managed to win 10 games in a row. Wenger also made two very smart transfers over the summer. Bringing in Ozil was his biggest success. The German midfielder has perfectly integrated himself into the team and he is almost constantly contributing to their success.
The Gunners have a tough two months ahead. They are going to face Dortmund on the 22nd of October after which they will have to play Chelsea, Liverpool, Dortmund and Manchester United. Hopefully until then the entire team will be ready to push through what may well be a decisive couple of weeks for Arsenal. Their trophy-less streak could be over at the end of the season if they manage to keep up the great form they’re in.
Good news came from the Champions League disciplinary committee who announced that Borussia Dortmund boss, Jurgen Klopp will be banned from joining his team at the pitchside of the Emirates. The German team’s manager is suspended for irresponsible behavior according to Metro. The incident that will probably help Arsenal, took place when Dortmund was facing Napoli. Klopp had a small nervous outbreak and verbally abused the fourth official.
Arsenal will have a major advantage over last years’ Champions League finalists who are probably the Gunners’ direct adversary for the first spot in the group stage of the Eurpean competition. The fact that Wenger’s team will be playing at home combined with Klopp’s suspension may lead to a win for the Emirates team who could end up scoring 9 points out of 9 in their first three matches.
Even if Dortmund have a well prepared staff, it will not be easy for the Germans to win a match on Emirates without the help of their manager. Luckily, Klopp will return for Borussia’s home game against Arsenal which will take place on the 6th of November.
