    Oh god, watching Hazard and Willian linking up yesterday makes me a bit nervous for our defence, while if Batshuayi starts instead of the Spanish donkey it's a pretty good attacking trio.

    Still have faith though, hoping for a similar team to Saturday.

    Couple of early Chelsea goals to kill the game sounds realistic.

    Can’t remember the last time we won a two leg tie.

    Two penalties to Chelsea in first 10 minutes is my thinking.

    I don't know-we got a couple of decisions from Michael Oliver in the past...it'll take him at least 20 min to do that.

    Need to go with 5 at the back, we seem to be able to grind results against them with it.

    I don't fancy AMN in a back four against Chelsea. Need go with 5 in the back. Moh isn't essential here.

    Possibly the most Important game of this season for Arsenal so far. A win would secure a place in a Wembley final.

    Assuming that Nacho and Ramsey are unfit, this should be the starting lineup.

    Ospina
    Holding/Chambers Mustafi Laurent
    Bellerin Jack Xhaka Sead
    Özil Welbeck/Iwobi
    Lacazette

    Mkhi cannot play for this one right? He's cup-tied I think.

    Will there be a VAR again ?

    Ridiculous that Xhaka is playing as an advanced midfielder.

    This is a guy who rarely ventured forward during his time at Gladbach.

    It's always 1 step forward 2 steps back. You want Xhaka to be supported in a 3 man midfield and then when we do switch to that he doesn't even end up playing in his favored spot.

    You make a good point, but he did well drifting forward against Palace. His passing through the lines carved them open several times.

    Will be interesting to see what Wenger does against Chelski. We looked good in a 4-3-3 on the weekend but we nullify Chelski well when we match them up.

    Yes, but we won't need him. Wenger has Conte's number;)
