Portsmouth – Arsenal : Preview & Prediction
There is only the FA Cup left to save the Gunners’ season, a season marked by 10th place in the league and elimination in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League by Olympiacos last Thursday (1-0 and 1- 2) at the end of extra time. The London club will want to immediately lift their heads while the latter remained on 3 straight wins against Newcastle (4-0), in Greece (1-0) in C3 and against Everton (3-2). Winners of Leeds United (1-0) and Bournemouth (2-1) in the previous rounds, the Gunners should be superior to this English D3 resident. Portsmouth, which did not create exploits in the preceding rounds with logical victories on Fleetwood Town (2-1) and vis-a-vis Barnsley (4-2), remains on 2 successes in championship in front of Milton Keynes (3-1) and Rochdale (3-0) at home. Portsmouth could experience its first defeat at Fratton Park since September 24th against Gunners who will certainly be very motivated to respect the hierarchy.
