A 3-0 win against Newcastle seems to have restored the confidence of Arsenal fans in their team. The previous week, the Gunners had lost 1-0 at Fulham, prompting supporters to question why Arsene Wenger hadn’t plugged the gaps in midfield that had been left by Alexander Hleb and Mathieu Flamini, will that question rear its ugly head when the team stumble away from home again?
For while Arsenal played well last weekend, the Magpies didn’t put up much of a fight, and it remains to be seen whether the likes of Eboue and Denilson can fulfil the role that Flamini performed so well last season. The Sun reports that the Milan midfielder will be supporting his former team-mates in the Champions League this season, but will he be watching a team that is getting out-battled in the middle of the park?
He said: “I don’t regret deciding to join AC Milan.
“I’m happy with the choice I’ve made. Milan has given me trust and I’m trying to repay them — we can always win the UEFA Cup.
“I will support Marseille and Arsenal in the Champions League this season.
“I believe Arsenal can do something good in the competition.”
The Frenchman wasted little time heading for the San Siro as soon as the season had finished, despite last season being a breakthrough campaign. Do Arsenal fans wish that he was still at the club and would your chances of winning silverware be improved if the player had remained?
