Having lost to Man City on Sunday in the Carabao Cup final, Arsenal take on Pep Guardiola’s side again tomorrow in the Premier League.
It’s not exactly the ideal opponent after such a disappointment at Wembley, but it is what it is and we have to get on with it.
Arsene Wenger faced the press this morning and provided the latest team news update.
The Gunners will be without Nacho Monreal who forced off during the first half on Sunday
“He’s out for the two games, this weekend, and Thursday to Sunday he’s certainly out,” said Wenger.
“He might be out for two more, Milan, and maybe even one more. He has an inflamed back, a disc problem.
“Everyone else is fit.”
It’s now down to the manager to get a response from players who were unquestionably below par in the last game against the same opposition.
Arsenal lie 10 points behind the top four with just 10 Premier League games remaining.
