In the reverse fixture, Arsenal were abysmal. The Gunners won the game with 2 goals in the last three minutes. Anderlecht were the better team and deserved a result. However football doesnt always work that way. Arsene Wenger though and Arsenal as a whole will want to put in a huge performance tomorrow. Alexis Sanchez has four goals in his last two and has been Arsenal's best player this season, Sanchez is a super talent and the decision to buy Wellbeck may have helped Sanchez as the Chilean prefers the withdrawn role. Having won three in a row now and climbed to fourth in the table the Emirates will expect a big performance tomorrow night agains the Belgian minnows and I think they will get it.
Whiel Anderlecht will come to the Emirates and fit tooth and nail for some sort of result I just think they wont have the quality to deal with the crowd and an Arsenal team that has improved in the two weeks since they played Anderlecht. Mitovich and Najar were terrific inthe first game in Belgium but the question is can they reproduce that form in front of 60,000 Arsenal fans.

A tough game here for Anderlecht, after the let down of losing after leading at home this one could be a stretch for the Belgians who are outmatched here. I think this is one where Arsenal finally put in an impressive display in Europe. I fully expect Arsenal to score three or four and get a comfortable win here.
