To get anything against the Gunners, though, we will need Jordan Pickford to turn in a performance like the one he managed at home to Chelsea when we beat Maurizio Sarri’s side 2-0.
The England ace is currently enjoying a profitable spell of form, despite his disastrous performance at Newcastle, having kept the opposition at bay four times in our last five games – the Magpies being the only side to beat him in that time.
