Seven things that will happen against Bolton today

Bolton Wanderers may well have a reputation as one of Arsenal's bogey team, but victory today would make it five in a row against the Trotters.

Looking into my crystal ball, I can predict a few things happening today:

1. New captain Kolo Toure will get the loudest cheer of the day when his name is read out and will put last year's rotten year behind him.

2. Kevin Davies will get booed by Gooners from the start and will be booked at some stage for a tackle that most of us consider worthy of a red (Davies has been booked in five of his last six games against us and nine times against us in total).

3. The home crowd will take a collective anxious breath every time Bolton get a corner or free kick anywhere near Manuel Almunia's goal.

4. Arsene Wenger and Gary Megson will argue on the touchline about the sporting virtues or intent of some of Bolton's roughshod tackles.

5. Robin van Persie's free kicks will continue to be a pale shadow of their previous accuracy.

6. Carlos Vela will come on as a left-winger and create more opportunities in the last 20 minutes than Samir Nasri has done all afternoon.

 

7. Arsenal will score in the last ten minutes, confirming victory and closing the gap on the teams above them.

Can you think of anything else that will happen this afternoon at Emirates?

COME ON YOU GUNNERS!!!
