Alex Song has been speaking to the press in the lead up to West Ham's trip to the Emirates this Saturday, with the former Arsenal player adamant that West Ham can pick up a win if they follow Monaco's example at the Emirates. The Express quotes him as saying;
"I know this stadium very well and I know when you play with Arsenal it's very hard, but I think Monaco is how you want to play when you play in the Emirates,"The best thing to do is to try to be together, defend together very well and when you have the opportunity to go on the counter attack, you have to do it very well like Monaco did it."If you want to go to Emirates and try to play you will not have any chance to win the game there because this stadium is very hard to play in."You have to stay together very compact and not give them any room, then take the opportunity on the counter attack. "If we do this very well like Monaco did, then we can get a good result there."
West Ham have been on a bad run of late with no wins in their last six and have suffered back to back defeats which has seen them slip down to 10th in the table. Arsenal are currently on a 7 game home win streak in the premier league and will look to continue that when West Ham visit at the weekend. If Arsenal are to win then they will have to keep Song's impact on the game at a minimum, with him been well accustomed to Arsenal having made 143 appearances for the Gunners.
Anyway that's that.
Subjectively, Cosmic Kid.
