Senderos Warns Against PSV Threat

Senderos Warns Against PSV Threat

Philippe Senderos has warned his team mates to beware of PSV`s ability to catch teams on the break - much like Arsenal have so famously done over the last decade.

PSV boss Ronald Koeman is quite the tactician and will have identified defending counterattacks as one of Arsenal`s weaknesses. Arsenal are likely to come out all guns blazing after manager Arsene Wenger described an away goal as 'vital`.

But…Wenger knows. The Frenchman is always one step ahead of his opponent, in fact I expect Wenger is quite the Chess player and will be a good 3 moves ahead of his opponent.

It`s clear from Swiss Tony`s comments that Wenger has Koeman`s number as he has the team studying PSV`s players and tactics.

"We have studied them and they have good players up front and in midfield," said mountainous defender. "They play the counterattacks very well so from my point of view as a defender we need to be very aware and concentrated through the whole side. A counterattack could be fatal for us."

Like to see how Arsene's new mix of the classy 'pass-n-move' and our recently acquired 'route one' ability work out in the Champions League. If we can make it work as it has started to do in the PL then, Ladies & Gentlemen, we have a date with Athens in May.

I think Le Boss will stick with the tried and trusted 4-5-1 formation for tonights game. we will have to keep an eye on Farfan and Kone for tonights game though. Kolo will know all about Kone as they are team mates in the Ivory Coast team.

Who do you reckon will play as centrebacks? Will he play Gallas or Senderos beside Toure?

An early goal is so important because Koeman is a bore specialist he will be looking to nick this tie 1-0.

plan is apparently to move away from the 4-5-1 now, as the youngsters have a further year's experoience behind them, so i believe.. »»Arsene Knows««

So the old route one is now a central part of your "arsenal"? Looking forward to Drogba and Sheva showing Senderos a thing or two on Sunday!
