As a supporter of the Gunners, I'm hoping your prediction rings true, but I don't think it will. It has all of the makings of a trap. Arsenal destroys Slavia in mid-week, while Liverpool bottom out. I'm worried about the young Gunners coming out over-confident.
As for Rafa, I'm not particularly impressed (his substitution of Gerrard in the derby was bush), but I wouldn't go so far as to label him the worst.
The games got 0-0 written all over it.
Liverpool will play with 9 in defense and I have a feeling Rafa will throw the dice and play Crouch up front this time on his own.
That leaves Arsenal with Reina and the ref to content with.
Watch out though the scousers have Alonso back.
I've been told by LFC supporters on this site that he's a better defensive midfield player than Makelele and a better attacking midfield player than Roy Keane was in that position!
