The next two Champions League games are both crucial and irrelevant.
We need a point to be sure of going through and nothing other than three will be acceptable tonight.
But there are bigger pictures here as well.
We need to get back to winning ways, get back our confidence, conviction and flow if we are to be in the right physical and mental state of mind to beat Ch*vski on Sunday.
And we need to get more of our fringe players up to speed so that we're not lacking when people are injured or suspended.
Aaron Ramsey is a case in point. A superb midfielder capable of being a superstar for us, but sometimes lacking in impact when he starts games.
Saturday was one of his worst perofrmances for us and while you cannot expect too much from an 18 year old, we rely on these players to step up and step up fast.
If Arsene Wenger truly believes that Carlos Vela has what it takes to replace M*nu Ad&b*yor as a front line striker, then he has to give the lad games and a home match in the Champions League is as good as any to blood him.
Dare I say it, but I'd probably start with pretty much the same side that faced Sunderland - with Samir Nasri probably the one to drop down to make way for Andrey Arshavin.
We have a lot of decent players - and I'd like to see Alex Song brought off early if the game is won because he is being run into the ground.
