Coquelin celebrating Sanchez’s goal vs Manchester United in October

As we enter the last few days of the cupid month, Arsenal fans around the globe are still wondering how our relationship with this season will end up. Will it be a romance to forget or look back on with fond memories? Who will be the saviour and who will be the nemesis?

Talking of nemesis, I can already name a few who always have and continue to be a stumbling block on our way to greatness and subsequently build on the results they get against us. Let’s take Barcelona for example. Rewind the times to that night in Paris in 2006 and the number of Champions League trophies between us and them were 1. Fast forward to 2016 and they have got their hands on it 5 times in 10 years while we still gasp in the air for a chance to get a genuine shot at the elusive and much coveted Champions League trophy.

A night to forget...

Patience is power.

Closer home, we have a similar story to tell if we take Manchester United into account. Till the opening season of the English Premier League in 1992, they had won the title only 7 times to our 10. Today they have a record 20 titles to our 13. Which means we have won the league only 3 times in the past 25 years. Another club which has caused us much mayhem in the past 10-12 years is Chelsea. 4 league titles and a Champions League crown within a short decade to boast of, they also have been our due nemesis in the recent past and in the most annoying of ways. Whatever our reasons must be, be it it to build a stadium, pay the debt, not having a sugar daddy, etc they all look paltry when we take into consideration of the fact that we have truly been outsmarted by the three clubs above us.

Fancy a similar result this time round too?

This week we face Manchester United and anyone who takes them lightly only needs to look at our game vs Chelsea last month to understand the fact that they are as good a team in the league as any and can still end up above anybody and everybody if the you go by the maths. The team news is that we are without Chamberlain while Gabriel is set to have a test early tomorrow. Everyone else remains fit and we can only hope Welbeck starts and does what he did last season which will ensure our first win at Old Trafford in the league since 2006.

Back to the topic for the day, they say even the mighty falls. Chelsea this season have ruptured, Barcelona’s time will come. But as for Manchester United, who better than us to be their Nemesis?
