    great to see Wilshere back in the league line-up. As bad as Alexis has been, he has contributed to both our victories.

    Liverpool are our new bogey team, I wouldn't be surprised if we got beaten or had a high score draw in this game. Only way we're gonna win is to cope with their high pressing and the players have enough professional pride to want to make up for the 4-0 loss at Anfield.

    We lose this one I think. Sad times.

    Arsenal1508 Mods are unethical! Ozil, come assist me please!

    Revenge time.

    Don't trust Mustafi in this one...think Per is needed here. Can not afford the highline...go back to a back 4 and dominate the midfield battle. I'm tempted to drop Bellerin for Debuchy (damn, never thought I'd say that). Debuchy has looked really good in the Cup matches...great defense and solid attackwise. Bellerin has flattered to deceive big time...might give him a kick up the arse. Need to put in some crunching tackles on Coutinho and Mane.

    If Welbeck starts ahead of Laca again, I'm shooting the TV. We had zero shots on target last go round, right?

    I agree, greatest friend!

    Just don't have confidence in us these days to pull out a result. Most likely Chamberlain will score one of his yearly goals against us. Hope we shake his shaky confidence early and watch him make a thousand mistakes. He's not as much as a snake as JVP or Fabs (Although both have a lot more sympathy from me these days) but that last performance we had from him is unforgivable.

    Think we'll get spanked by these unless our defence is on form. Kolasinac and Debuchy have to start at full back and Sanchez needs dropping as he loses the ball too much and never tracks back.

    Debuchy Kos Mustafi Kolasinac
    Wilshere Xhaka
    Iwobi Özil Welbeck

    No ways Wenger drops Sanchez or Hector. Although he should

    I know mate and that is my main criticism of Wenger. Any other team in the country, you play **** or don't put 100% then you get dropped. As much as I hate Mourinho this is one thing about him that I really like, he's ruthless.

    A back four containing Klavan, Lovren and Gomez. Got to be testing that, they're sh*t at defending when everyone's fit as it is.

    Also for the record I think this thread is a fine job by @American_Gooner but that option was too tempting.

    Mark Tobias Mr. Agreeable

    Definitely. If Wenger was more ruthless he would be a better manager. Funnily enough, in his early years he was more ruthless.

    I don't want to see the back 3 again, would much rather go with a back four and play Coq as a out and out DM (assuming he's fit), we need to have someone to break up their attacks, either by intercepting, tackling or cynical challenges and without Coq in the side we simply don't have that type of player

    Something like

    Players who were in the starting eleven yesterday, won't be there on Friday. So no to Kolasinac, Debuchy, Coquelin and etc.

    Loving the negativity on here. Same before the Spuds game. Hoping for a similar return.
