GOOD MORNING ARSENAL FANS
It’s game day, and Arsenal are taking on Big Sam’s West Brom at 8PM!
Speaking ahead of the game, Big Sam said he hopes his side ‘fear Arsenal’.
Allardyce said: “Let’s hope they see Arsenal as big as they see Manchester City and Liverpool because they seem to do the right things against the teams they have a bit more fear of.
“I hope they fear Arsenal and it kicks them into performing like they did against Liverpool.
“We need to start picking up points wherever we can but certainly here at The Hawthorns.”
Legendary manager Arsene Wenger has said he would return to the club ‘if needed’.
Speaking to ABC Sports, Wenger said: “If I’m needed, I will help them, but I don’t expect that, no.”
Arsenal defender Sokratis could finally be on his way out of the club with both Napoli and Fenerbahce interested in signing him.
The 32-year-old was not registered for either the Premier League or Europa League squads, and with his contract due to expire in the summer Arsenal could look to move him on.
The Gunners are also looking at bringing in Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie, according to reports.
The 25-year-old’s contract is due to expire at the end of the 2021-22 season and according to 90min, he has given no indication he intends to renew his deal.
Arsenal may have a secret weapon up their sleeve should they pursue a deal for Christie.
Former team-mate Kieran Tierney joined the Gunners back in 2019 and could prove to be rather useful in luring the Scotland international to the Emirates.
