    Arguably our biggest game each season.



    ...one of our most memorable ever matches, amazing game...probably the last season we had a truly elite team too.

    Vieira's rampaging run for his goal, Bobby's beautiful little shimmy for his...highlight for me is the last goal though...Henry trying to calm it all down, immediately gives a goal away :lol:

    Michael Oliver being referee for this is significant, can see him giving a pen/red card against Arsenal

    Dier banned. Not sure if good or bad for us. He hasn't been particularly convincing as a CB under Mou but Alderweireld, who is a superior player talent-wise, might be lacking sharpness since he hasn't played a lot

    NLD without fans will be very different it'll be just another normal game. We already saw that with Everton vs Liverpool

    Martinez
    Mustafi Luiz Kola
    Bellerin Xhaka Ceballos Tierney
    Pepe Auba Saka

    Important to keep playing with same names in midfield and defense until the end of season we been very solid and no need to change it

    Auba isn't gonna play in the centre. It will be Laca in the centre and Auba on the left. Arteta has played every game like that, why would he change it now.

    Think we should start as favourites in this one considering there’s no crowd. They’ve been playing **** and also have to play on Thursday evening having already played in Monday. They should be knackered by the time they play us.

    Are you leaving out Saka or Pepe then?

    Laca should be dropped for his missed chances last night imo, need to get Pepe back in the side as well.

    Arteta won’t leave himself without a striker to bring on either so I think it will be Lacazette on the bench.

    I'd like to see Auba in the centre and Saka on the left just as much as everyone else, but there's just no indication that Arteta's gonna do that. So we just have to go along with it.

    So Auba left or centre is the big question
    Everything else is already decided

    Martinez, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Cedric, Tierney, Xhaka, Ceballos, Pepe, Saka, Auba
    would be my team, allows us to bring Laca off the bench.

    “We will look at the options we have up front now and how we can be a little bit diverse and have options".

    That’s what Arteta said yesterday, so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Auba down the middle now we only have two strikers. He’ll need to leave one on the bench in case of injury/fatigue.

    Oliver reffed both teams matches only a couple of games ago. They picked him for the drama. I actually think this could work in our favour.

    Do we all agree that Pepe, Saka and Auba is our best available front 3? If so, why would he not play them?

    Yeah I agree. I'm dying to see Saka on the left of a front 3. I feel like we have this amazing kid and I've only ever seen him play in his second best positions, and not his best one.

    Just based on what Arteta's done since the restart I'd guess it's highly likely Auba will still be on the left. I may be wrong.
