    Me too. I would also consider Elneny for Xhaka but I dont think Wenger will. I think Elneny Wilshere is a better combo

    Bellerin - Kos - Mustafi - Monreal
    Wilshere - Elneny
    Mkhi - Özil - Ramsey

    None because we don't have any midfield combination thats defensively secure. My post below yours is what I would prefer to line up. We absolutely need to score goals, because we will definitely concede, a few.

    I agree with you. Except I'd have Wilshere, El Neny and Ramsey as a flat midfield 3. Ramsey needs to drop back and press. Spurs couldn't cope with Liverpool in the first 45 minutes at Anfield because Dembele and Dier ceded possession when pressed by Henderson, Wijnaldum and Can. The second half changed when Eriksen dropped a little deeper and started picking up the ball to link their midfield with their attack.

    We have enough of a goal threat from Mkhi, Özil and Auba I feel.

    Yeah I guess that would be more defensive and we are away from home. I'm really looking forward to this one, could have a big effect on our top 4 chances, especially if Chelsea continue to dissolve.

    I am excited but nervous as this game edges closer, ill be up for it tho as always and I am sure Mkhi & Auba will want to prove themselves here, I believe in us to get the result here, the boys know that a win will give us bragging rights along with proving London IS RED!

    There are baby-naming events? What? I mean... I've heard of baby showers, but events where you're just naming the baby...?

    Can see why we could consider a back three/five and give our front three free rein.

    We are in luthers church but my wife church dont have baptism of childrens. They just name the babies. The baptism comes later when they are old enough to decide for themselves. So yeah just a small nice gathering and the baby get a name like Þórólfur or Skarphéðinn or something.

    Will be slaughtered for this, but I wouldn't mind seeing what a 3-4-3 with our newly acquired players could do out there.

    First two paragraphs sum up your, my and probably many Arsenal fans thoughts.

    Clear reasons to be confident but also same old reasons not to be.

    We need to get at them and stop them from dictating the game. The individual players they have aren't great and we need to keep the ball away from Kane and Eriksen primarily. Be in their faces, be aggressive... and get the ball to Özil and Mkhi deep in their half as often and as quickly as possible.

    Sounds very Tolkienian.

    Was he influenced a lot by Nordic mythology by chance? I always forget Sigurdsson's first name and keep wanting to call him Dol Guldur :lol:
