Sniper Mik: “5 days between Bayern and this game is a welcome break, I must say. And with Villa playing on Thursday it’s even better. Emery may try to emulate what Bayern did, sit super deep and break from inside their own half. I’d be surprised if they play their usual high-line.”

SA Gunner: “I have no issues with our league form. We’ve come off a poor result in the Champions League and carried on business as usual in the League. The scars of last season are also still fresh in my mind, so I know the boys will be fully focused here.

What worries me the most here is energy levels and energy preservation.

There are potentially still 10 games to go after the Villa game. So let’s get the advantage early and manage the game, hopefully with fresh legs from 60 minutes onwards.

2-0 Arsenal.”

Tom Mix: “Hopefully Villa will have a tough game against Lille as they have two days fewer to recover.

There are a number of players who need to have some time here: ESR, Jesus, Vieira, Partey, Zinchenko, Nelson, Nketiah, Tomiyasu. Not all from the beginning and not all at the same time. We need to protect Rice, Ødegaard and Saka if we can but let’s be realistic… tough as it will be we have clearly have less of a chance of winning CL than the league so this has to be three points. 2-0 or 3-1 will do me.

I think we can combine winning with preparing for Bayern away but we certainly can’t afford to give away cheap goals and we should try and blow them out the water in the first half.”

Yousif Arsenal: “I hope our players don’t catch up with two minds because of the Bayern Munich game first we have Villa to take care. Really can’t say so much Emery will set his team to win and will attack so we need to avoid mistakes.

Will we rotate? I don’t know we playing against a team who are 5th it’s unlike Luton I think we’ll go with a strong line-up here.”
