So, after dismantling Southampton in the FA Cup, attention turns once again toward the Premier League. A home game against a team desperately struggling for form, if we approach it with the required seriousness and dedication, we'll win comfortably.

Team News
Santi Cazorla out- Achilles
Granit Xhaka out- Suspension
Things are looking good on the injury front, there are murmurs that Coquelin and Ramsey are struggling with injuries, but we'll know for sure closer to the game. Mesut Özil should go straight back into the starting XI, will there be starts for the likes of Giroud and Bellerin?


Possible Lineup
Cech
Bellerin Kos Mus Nacho
Ramsey Coquelin
Walcott Özil Iwobi
Alexis
Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Gabriel, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Perez, Welbeck, Giroud.

Prediction
3-0
Özil, Alexis and Iwobi with the goals.
COYG!

Big win needed, build on our recent form and get pumped for Chelsea on Saturday. It will be very, very hard on Ox if Wenger drops him.

I'd try three in mid to see if it'd work for the Chelsea game:

Cech
Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
Ramsey Coquelin Ox
Özil Alexis Iwobi​

Us at home and Watford really depleted, We could take predominantly the same approach as yesterday, they will park the bus but if we show any where near the link up play and finishing as We did at Southhampton, we should open them up with ease!

We have also got to utilize and identify in this game our best midfield options looking toward the Chelsea(I know, no s**t Sherlock) game!

Is it official,, are Ramsey and Coq or either or neither injured?

Ox and Walcott doing their thing yesterday. One playing a blinder and the other scoring for fun.

But we've seen these false dawns with them so many times. Must frustrate Wenger, he never knows what's going to turn up. Or whether they'll be out injured.

Give Ox a game in the centre and move Özil further forward if need be. Don't want us to be relying on a midfield that we know is mostly ****.

Agree with giving the Ox a game in central midfield and I would ideally pair him with le Coq or El-Neny (if he's back).
However, I am having a hard time deciding between Walcott and Welbeck paired with Sanchez-Perez-Özil.
We're almost back to the invincible days in terms of quality in depth.

Surprised so many calls for Ox in midfield. Our season will be defined by the Chelsea, Liverpool & Bayern fixtures... He is the last type of midfielder we need in those games.

We either need to give Ramsey & Coquelin a run of games to form a partnership or take risk on AMN.

Would love a formation shift but it didnt even happen when we swapped Giroud & Alexis upfront!

Seeing lineups with both Ramsey and Coquelin in midfield makes me cringe... last season was emotionally scarring :confused:

I d risk Ox in midfield in these games rather than Ramsey, but in 4-3-3, too much to ask that from AMN, and I doubt that after so many years of failures as CM Ramsey can play couple of quality games there against such opposition, one is possible, two is a reach, three sf.

Our tails are up again and we are dreaming of the title. Its a shame that we have Chelsea the match thereafter, I was starting to enjoy dreaming again.

Anyway, a must win game naturally. Hopefully our rivals slip up giving us that room at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal Quotes

When we won the title on May 3-rd by beating Everton 4-0 as Tony Adams scored that iconic goal, we showed everyone and especially Manchester United that we could beat them. Thirteen days later, when we beat Newcastle 2-0 in the FA Cup final in the legendary Wembley Stadium, it was wonderful... I felt immensely proud for the team, for the club: this was the fantastic response I was able to give to those who had put their confidence in me, as well as those who had put me through all those difficult weeks when I first arrived.
