Aubameyang cup tied, Ramsey still out
If Welbeck can't score at home vs these then we're in trouble.
Welbeck cannot start after that performance last time!
Give Eddie a start or play iwobi as striker
Im not on the AMN hypetrain neither
Play him as acm/winger instead
Dont trust him as dm/cm yet
We will play something boring like:
Welbeck Laczette Iwobi
Elneny Xhaka Maitland-Niles
Kola Holding Chambers Bellerin
Laca is out for weeks
Nelson should start on his best position at this one I even would start nektiah over welbeck
Forgot that Miki was cup tied. Play him as a ten
-——— Willock————— Elneny
No point wasting games on Per.
I’m sort of tempted to play xhaka over elneny, can’t decide whose worse right now
AMN should get a game at RB, if hector gets injured he is next in line
He is the main contributor on the Laca thread. He set the trap, you took the bait baby!
No reason to play Welbeck, we wont learn anything we dont already know. Play Nketiah and Nelson, they are used to playing together and play against better teams than this on a regular basis. AMN I'm not bothered where or if he plays. I would start Wilshere as he hasnt played much and needs sharpening up.
-——— Wilshere———— Elneny
Macey (unless Cech is fit)
Holding Chambers Per Kola
Nelson Elneny Willock AMN
Regardless of how crap Welbeck was, we need to pick him here and hope gets some confidence
We can’t go into the next round with just Nekitah
Tbh I’m surprised we didn’t call back Lucas Perez. He would have been useful in the Europa League
I see, I don't read that thread it itself seems like one big trap
Welbeck will be on the bench Sunday unlike Eddie so it makes sense to play him and hope he can grab a goal or two. Although maybe you could stick him out wide, play Micki as a 10 and Eddie up front.
Wenger clearly didn't fancy him but it's a fair point, I think Wenger wants to give Welbeck a final chance though. If he came back and scored a few in Europa it might have added some value to him for us to recoup.
Yes Welbeck needs playing time and confidence. This is a dead rubber, we shouldn't risk anyone who may start on Sunday and as few bench players as possible.
Not utterly impossible Laca might be able to make it for the return game in the next round but realistically he won't. But not at the expense of Nketiah, he needs playing time too before the next round.
He's really uninspiring, can't imagine many people see his name on the team sheet and feel anything but boredom
needs? he is 27 he should be ready as a footballer
his touch is worse than Theos was!
Think we’ll do them again. 2-0.
