The former winger played for Arsenal 1998-2007 and was part of the "Invincibles" team that went through the 2003-04 league season unbeaten.
He returned to the club in an ambassadorial role in 2013 and after a brief spell on the coaching staff at VfL Wolfsburg in 2017 he rejoined the Gunners in 2018 as Under-23 coach, before being promoted to first-team assistant coach in June.
Given the capital clubs turbulent week, backing an Arsenal victory in this tussle doesn't appeal to me, however, I am going to revisit a couple of bets that I successfully tipped in the north London sides last outing against Eintracht.
Therefore, with that in mind, I'm going to back Arsenal to score two or more goals and to take at least five corners - the visitors have taken five or more corners in seven of their last eight league outings, not to mention they have scored at least two goals against the other two sides who now make up the bottom-three. "I felt excitement at such a big thing".
Whoever occupies the vacancy should not expect that the club's ambitions for the season will be more contiguous due to their hard start, as Kroenke - the son of Stan club owner - still feels they can achieve their goals.
"We'll try to win Sunday's game and if there are a few other games, we'll see. That's what I'm focusing on and then we'll see in the future". It's not an easy one, because I don't know what you do with the back four.
The Gunners are on the lookout for a new manager after they sacked Unai Emery on Friday morning following a run of seven games without a win in all competitions.
"At the moment, I am learning the trade and trying to do everything I can to improve myself - of course it is an honour that the club thinks I am able to take on this massive responsibility, but at the moment I am just concentrating on taking it game by game". If you play good football and have a good result, there's nothing better to raise spirits.
