Bellerin just played his first proper 90 after an ACL injury. Should not be in the XI come Sunday. Probably neither should Tierney for that matter. We should probably be a bit conservative with them till after the break. Dont want any kind of reoccurences or niggles at this stage. Chambers and Kola should do v Bournemourh, as annoying as it might be for some of us. I would like to see this:
LenoI know Xhaka will start instead of Ceballos most likely. But forward line seems quite set for now.
Chambers Luiz Holding Kola
Guendouzi Willock Ceballos
Pepe Aubameyang Saka
Yesterday was the start. Have faith. You sound like you aren't willing to see it turn good. You aren't the only one, though.I might top myself if I keep watching Emery ball.

The platform for improvement is there. Players returning, players emerging... This should be the most optimistic period of the season so far but, instead, and off the back of a really encouraging 90 minutes (not the result), it's as toxic and anti-manager as ever. Makes me wonder what it would have been like had we lost...
I didn't particularly say that he should be moved. I did say that I would be open to benching Pepe if somehow that gets him to improve his game due to competition for his place and if that involves trying out the youngsters who have shown they are up to the challange (Willock, Nelson, Saka, Martinelli) in his place, I'd be fine with it. Right now, the latter three are all good on the left imo and we all know Willock is a mf. I think we should create a balance with them in the event that Pepe, God forbid, goes down or sees difficult patches. I don't like Nelson on the right so i'd like to see Pepe or Martinelli there sometime even if it is in the cups to see what they can do there.Saka is our starter on our left, why would you drop pepe just to move him to the right when he's doing superb on the left side? What are you on about?
