Prepping for Chelsea – The Arsenal Attack Conundrum

Post by KingHenryThefif  With the end of the transfer window and the first International break of the season,  another pivotal clash against the Blues looms once again; a perfect opportunity to show any possible renewed resolve to right the team’s wrongs and compete with a top team on their own patch, following the horrible show at Anfield in the team’s last away game.
