SCTip: Wenger not to be a smartass tonight

Universe, and football game in particular, has a tendency of getting back at you if you are careless and have no respect for the opponent. It also adds a little bit more salt to the wound if your last name is Wenger which was exemplified in the 1st round of Champions League when Gunners visited Dinamo Zagreb and lost 1:2. True, Croatian champions didn’t lose 45 matches in a row but that, more or less, has nothing to do with the game of football in the normal world. Be as it may Gunners now need to make up for points lost against another outsider in their group.

Silly Giroud is out tonight (thank God) so Arsenal will one less angry girl prancing around the pitch which gives them even more chances of winning tonight. Our money to score, if you’re into that kind of bets, is on Sanchez who confirmed his fine form against Leicester with a hattrick. We also know we’re not inventing hot water as well.
