Win an Arsenal shirt in this 5-a-side tournament


Domestic football returns again this weekend following the international break as Arsenal host Stoke City in the Premier League on Sunday.

We won three consecutive games, two against AC Milan either side of a 3-0 thrashing of Watford, before the international break.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were among the goalscorers as Petr Cech even saved a penalty to keep our outside chances of a top four finish on a string against the Hornets.

Three points, as expected, this weekend against relegation threatened Stoke City would do our top four hopes a world as good – especially as fourth and fifth placed Tottenham and Chelsea go head-to-head on Sunday.

The expectation of three points is backed up by the football betting odds from Betfair who have us at a very short 1.33 to win.

Paul Lambert’s side are flirting with relegation as they head into the weekend’s game at the Emirates in 19th place and three points adrift of West Ham United who represent the last safety spot.

To make matters worse for the Potters, West Ham host Southampton in a clash between the two teams directly above Stoke.

Before Sunday’s game we are giving one of our lucky readers the chance to win an Arsenal shirt.  To enter, simply leave a comment below or message me your choice of one of the five 5-a-side teams below.

If your team is the same as my pick then your name will be in the hat to win the Arsenal shirt:


Many Premier League winners are among the players in each of the five teams – including John Terry, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Scholes.

Of course, the best name on the list is in Team D as Thierry Henry is joined by Bayern Munich and Germany shot stopper, Manuel Neuer, Barcelona legend Carles Puyol, Manchester United legend Paul Scholes, and former-Barcelona and Brazil star, Rivaldo.

Thierry Henry spent his first eight seasons with us between 1999-2007, winning the Premier League title in 2002 and 2004 – the latter as part of the Invincibles.  He was named in the PFA Team of the Year on six occasions and was the Premier League Golden Boot winner on four occasions.  What a legend.
