The Theatre of Dreams should be rocking as the dawn of the Rangnick’s short-term era begins and if Arsenal are to stand any chance of making it out with a result, they cannot get caught up in the emotion of this occasion, too.
As they did for the first half hour at Anfield, Arteta’s men must remain assured and composed as they look to suck the life out of the game.
“We competed really well in the first half,” the Arsenal boss noted after the Liverpool game. “They had their moments and we had our moments, we were really compact and used the ball in the right way.
“Then we conceded a goal from a set play… we just threw it away.”
