The under-fire manager and his Blackburn team have started the season in a torrid fashion after only gaining one point in four games and sitting at the very bottom of the league.
Arsene gave his view on Steve Kean and his tough start to the season saying:
This job is difficult, everyone who has been in it knows it.
I have a lot of sympathy for Kean. He is a young manager and you want to give him time to do his job.
A lot of time you complain the British managers do not get a chance and I can understand that but when they do get a chance you must give them time.
Surely with Blackburn failing to fire in their last four games and Arsenal finally on a high note after a victory against Swansea, as well as a well earned point against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, the gunners will be big favourites to win the match. Hopefully they can put in a solid performance and bag all three points!
