The Gunners from London will be looking to win away at Blackburn and consolidate their third place position in the Premier League which would guarantee them direct qualification for next season’s Champions League.
In the last game of the 37th round in the EPL, Blackburn plays host to Arsenal and while the home side has almost nothing to play for, the Londoners will be motivated to put an end to their poor run in the last 7 matches. Arsenal have managed just one win in their last 7 games, atlhough that shouldn’t be viewed as such a surprise considering their star player Fabregas is out. An away win here will secure 3rd spot for Wenger and his men which is still an improvement compared to last year’s 4th.
Even though the Gunners have a number of players out through injuries, they should still be able to field a very competitive starting 11. The players out for them are William Gallas, Cesc Fabregas (fractured leg) , Andrey Arshavin, Denilson (groin), Thomas Vermaelen (both calf), and goalkeeper Manuel Almunia (wrist).
However, Wenger still has a number of top class players at his disposal especially in the attacking department in the likes of Nasri, Rosicky, van Persie, Walcott, Eduardo, Vela, Diaby, Song, and Eboue. Another factor working in their favor is the recent history between the two sides which shows that Arsenal have scored 19 goals agaisnt Blackburn in the last five meetings. Robin van Persie also looks set to score today as he has scored seven goals in seven matches against Rovers.
