    Games coming thick and thin right now, only three days after a huge away game we’ve got a home game against Standard Liege.

    I’ll be honest my knowledge of the Belgian League isn’t the best but Standard have the record Belgian league signing in defence. A young CB called Zinho Vanheusden.

    They finished third last year and are up at the top of the table with Brugge in this campaign.

    They come into this game in good form having beaten Vitoria in their last EL game and also unbeaten in all games since September 1st.

    For us Emery will probably have to play the kids considering we’ve got Bournemouth on Sunday.

    Had a longer think for our line up I’d go:
    Bellerin - Holding - Mavrapanos - Kola

    A step up in the recovery for Bellerin and Holding and would leave Tierney fresh to play against Bournemouth on Sunday. Maybe it’s time to see what AMN can be in the middle of the park because he’s impressed there before.

    I’d like to start Xhaka here but we know he’s going to play against Bournemouth so probably won’t start here.

    Hopefully a good performance and no injuries.

    If Smith-Rowe fit he should start ahead of Saka. Torreira not used alot this season

    These games are actually quite enjoyable at least. Get to see some of the talented young guns before Emery has turned them all into CDMs

    Game I'm looking forward to. Might even get a ticket if possible and head up to Emirates.

    Hope the lineup is this:

    Bellerin Mustafi Holding Tierney
    Willock Ceballos
    AMN Özil Nelson
    Very ball dominant team with overlapping full backs, movement from deep and Martinelli causing problems ahead of the ball.

    I would hope ESR is around so he can start hopefully. I also want to see a big game from Nelson. Needs to put in a performance.

    Martinez; Bellerin, Chambers, Holding, Mustafi, Luiz, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Tierney; Xhaka; Aubameyang

    1-0, Auba. One shot on goal.

    Watching young guns is more enjoyable this season. Looking forward for all EL games till Emery decides to get more control in midfield and start all DMs.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Emery started Auba. Wouldn't want to risk the only competition that matters.

    Would you play Tierney here or on Sunday?

    Feel he should get another 90 and give Kolasinac the start on Sunday.

    Bournemouth have looked leaky as f*ck so I’m not too worried about them.

    Emery's favourite competition so expecting nothing other than a home win. Would like to see a back four of Bellerin, Chambers, Holding and Tierney. And Martinelli up front instead of Auba.

    Good chance for Holding, Tierney and Bellerín to get some further minutes under their belt. Would like to see Maitland-Niles get an outing in another position too. Would be good to see Smith-Rowe, Nelson and Martinelli get some minutes as well.
