Romford Pele

Gibbs rested? Giroud AND Welbeck?!

Interested to see how they line up!


I dun mind a 442 line up…. someone to finally partner giroud

Alright Mate

Well, that’s a confusing line up!


Not what I was expecting but COYG nonetheless!

What will it take for either Rosicky or Podolski to start?

Romford Pele

Proving they are better than someone in the starting 11?

Rosicky must be doing something wrong in training…

Podolski hasn’t really impressed when he has come on.


Because Wenger is God and is never wrong therefore it must be podolski and rosicky doing something wrong. What a brilliant conclusion. But Ramsey and carzola who have been recently out of form are doing absolutely no wrong.

Dick Swiveller

Well, going by what we’ve seen from Poldi in games over the lat 18 months then he isn’t good enough to displace anyone from the starting XI. No idea why Rosicky isn’t playing, but we are pretty well stocked in his position, and Poldi’s for that matter.

Perry S.

good thing you’re not the manager. cazorla won us that match.


Once Poldis work rate and ability to play with his back to goal improve exponentially then he will start. Having a left foot and a love of social media is not enough. Rosicky has not had many chances but in the chances he has had he has not been great.


And when Mr Wenger is criticized for not mixing team tactics up, he comes up with this. I am sure of a strong defensive performance. But going foward, can the team gel? 90 minutes will tell. Coyg’s


Expected Gibbs & The Ox to start…


Rested. I’m glad they are. Some others need a rest as well, particularly Alexis, but you can’t rotate an entire team.

The Gimp

Looks like a strong line up



surprised that the Ox doesn’t get a start

Springbank 1965

Strong bench.


Would be great to see this lineup work excellently followed by some game time for rosicky and podolski when we are cruising 3-0.. One can sure dream 🙂 glad some players are rested.. COYG!!

Finsbury Park Gooner

I don’t understand

Aussie Bruce

That’s not a bad West brom line up either. Should be a good game.


Ox has been brilliant last 2 matches surprised he’s on the bench.


When was the last time we started with two up top?

Virginia Goon

I like it….Potentially tons of strength up front with Giroud and Welbz. Excited to see how they link up. C’mon Arsenal.



Probably not.


I suspect a 4-4-2 when we have possession but as soon as we lose it welbeck moves to the left or right of midfield as we all know that his work rate is superb.


So two of our best performers in midweek Ox & Gibbs dropped. Welbeck who was doubtful with a knock, plays in the position he doesn’t want to, when Ox is better there anyway! FFS wenger!


I do agree to an extent, especially about the ox. I do suspect however that the recent additions to the injury list may have scared Wenger a bit.


I bet Welbeck is deployed on the left and Alexis behind Giroud. Surprised Ox isn’t starting, given his form.

(Alexis Alexis)*(Alexis Alexis)*/Alexis

too many players with affinity to come to play narrow. Danny, Giroud, Alexis, Flamini, Ramsey, Cazorla non like it on the wings….perhaps Arsne knows, we’ll know after the game


Who is Macey?


A slightly older youth goalkeeper than Ryan Huddart.

Policeman's Bangers 'N' Mash

Corrrr I can’t wait to see Giroudy’s bum!


Wenger out!


It will be sad to watch welbeck on the left when there are three left wingers on the bench plus that not the iidealplacr to put a potential striker struggling for goals. Just hope we win tho. Coyg!!


Oh.. The boss is back at the back.. No more nonesense goals conceded! An martinez to gain more experience.. COYG!


Its nice to see that Wenger is approaching some opponents with different tactics. This looks like 4-4-2..
Gibbs and Ox rested.. That is good move..


Running out of goalkeepers! Surprised to see both Giroud and Welbeck lining up. Great to see Kos back as well. Hopefully he’s not rushed. COYG

Back to fourth if arsenal fc win the game needs gunner goals coyg
