Reading vs Arsenal, Premier League Gameweek 17: Open Thread

madejski stadium 600x450 Reading vs Arsenal, Premier League Gameweek 17: Open Thread

Today’s final match of Premier League gameweek 17 features two teams, yet again, who are desperate for a win. Arsenal desperately needs a win to shake off the immense pressure the manager and players have had on their backs from the fans, critics and the press. Reading, on the other hand, need a win to move off the bottom of the Premier League. Anything less and it’ll be a very tense Christmas period for both sides.

Despite both teams needing a win, it’s Arsenal that’s under more pressure. No one is anticipating that Reading has what it takes to win today despite giving Manchester United a run for its money recently in the 3-4 loss. Reading should be able to play their normal game, hoping that no costly mistakes will happen. Arsenal, on the other hand, will want to get an early goal to take the pressure off. The Gunners will be hoping for a goal scoring fest like they had in October when they beat Reading 7-5 in the Capital One Cup at the Madejski.
