The Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie believes that this weekends game against Man City could be a very high-scoring affair, just like many games between the top teams this season.
“You feel with City at the moment they could either go out and score none or three or five, you just don’t know,” said Van Persie. “It makes it interesting as a fan because we can score five too, we’ve shown that already this season, against big teams. They can do it as well, so it might be 5-5 – you never know!”
“I’m confident that we can get a good result – we have to get three points, a draw is not that good for either of us. So it should be a great game.
“We are well prepared, because you have to know your stuff about the opposition, but in the end it’s about your own performance that will hopefully make the difference.”
Arsene Wenger has also indicated that both teams have to go for the win, so we can’t expect the boring 0-0 that we have seen in the last two meetings between these sides, or can we?
