Portsmouth vs Arsenal: Live Score and Live Updates

Portsmouth is going to face league leader Arsenal in their second last EPL match of 2007. Portsmouth vs Arsenal match will take place at the Portsmouth home ground at the Fratton Park stadium on the Boxing Day. The South Coast city club will have the home advantage in the match as they will play in front of their own supporters. However, Arsenal is now in great form so far this season in EPL and they lead the point table with 43 points. In contrast, Portsmouth now stands 7th in the league standing.

Arsenal in EPL 2007-2008 So Far

To be honest, the ongoing EPL season has been successful for both Arsenal and Portsmouth so far. With no big star, Arsenal has been performing consistently. Arsenal has lost only one match so far this season. After the move of Thierry Henry to Barcelona earlier this season, Arsenal became starless and many wrote off Arsenal of having any success this season.

However, manager Arsene Wenger led the inexperienced side up to this stage after 18 matches. So, no doubt, Arsenal has got more than what they could even dream for this season. With some brilliant performances from the youngsters like Emmanuel Adebayor are keeping Arsenal atop the league point table so far this season. The Togo forward Emmanuel Adebayor has scored 10 times in EPL this season and now stands second to Cristiano Ronaldo in the scoring list of English premier league this season. Moreover, Arsenal could also make it to the last 16 of Champions League playing consistently well this season. So, Wenger again proved his worth as a manager leading Arsenal towards another league title.

Portsmouth in EPL 2007-2008 So Far

With some inspirational performances from African internationals, Portsmouth has been playing more than well that their fans could even think off this season. Yes, achieving 30 points from 18 matches, they seem to be determined. What is more, they are playing as a team. Portsmouth had remained unbeaten in 11 EPL matches this season before they lost to Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 on 15th December. Portsmouth suffered only four defeats so far this season. It shows their strength in the defense.

Manager Juande Ramos has successfully led Portsmouth this season so far. However, it would be unfair to give all the credits to Ramos only. Two Nigerian players John Utaka and Nwankwo Kanu have performed regularly for the Pompey. Another forward Benjani Mwaruwari also continued a lot to the success of Portsmouth. Senegalese midfielder Papa Bouba Diop and Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari have been playing their job for Portsmouth with sheer consistently. However, to tell the truth, Captain Sol Campbell and his deputy Sylvain Distin have been playing a great role in the defense of Portsmouth.

Recent Performance of Arsenal

Arsenal has defeated Tottenham Hotspur in their Saturday match in EPL with Emmanuel Adebayor and Nicklas Bendtner scoring for Arsenal. Arsenal has been playing superb in the last few matches despite their defeat to Middlesbrough on 9 December. Arsenal won three out of there last five matches with one lose and a draw to their credit. It was their first defeat in EPL. However, Arsenal players got their confidence back in their immediate next EPL match against Chelsea that Gunners won 1-0. So, it seems that Arsenal is going smoothly towards another EPL title. I think, Arsenal will be cautious enough before they take on Portsmouth remembering this slip off against Middlesbrough. Actually, Manchester United stands within a point of Arsenal in the league standing. So, Arsenal can not afford losing any points at this stage.

Recent Performance of Portsmouth

The way Portsmouth is going, it is very possible for the Pompey to finish the season in the top five of the league table. However, they have suffered two back-to-back defeats in EPL recently. In the last match, they were defeated by mighty Liverpool 4-1. So, Portsmouth needs to keep up their good performance if they want something bigger this season. Since their progress to the English Premier League in 2003-2004 season, they have seen their best performance last season finishing 7th in the league point table. Now, I think, they have the quality and skill to bring a better result this season. Ahead of the crucial match against Arsenal, Portsmouth players can inspire themselves as they are going to face league leader Arsenal. Portsmouth players can also inspire their players singing the Pompey Chimes “Play up Pompey, Pompey play up.”
