Arsenal have the opportunity to make it three wins inside eight days if they're able to overcome to BATE Borisov in the Europa League tonight.
For most managers such a run would have them sleeping easier at night. But Arsène Wenger knows he's only one negative result away from a plane being flown over the Emirates with a ‘Wenger Out' in tow.
Since defeat to Liverpool before the last international break, the Gunners are undefeated in five and are slowly but surely starting to find their groove again.
A win in Belarus puts them in control of the group. It won't be as straightforward as it sounds on paper. Mesut Özil, Alex Iwobi, Petr Čech, Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka are all missing from the matchday squad.
The Evening Standard suggest Iwobi will play no part in the match after sustaining a thigh injury while Özil must also wait for his chance to start despite making a substitute appearance during the win over West Brom on Monday.
Wenger will be able to call upon the services of former Manchester City transfer target Alexis Sánchez, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Alexandre Lacazette, Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Shkodran Mustafi and Mohamed Elneny after all nine players took part in training.
It means even though the Gunners are missing a number of key players they will be able to field a formidable XI.
