Coq and Xhaka is a midfield duo I’ve wanted to see, but Cazorla’s brilliance made that impossible. So I’m looking forward to seeing how it plays out today. But I hope Santi’s back soon.


Agree we need their physicality and Xhaka’s passing today, especially as Spurs start their most physical combo in midfield.


I too am interested to see go this goes. I fear for our ability to keep 11 men in the field and kinda hoped for Elneny over Xhaka. No doubt manager will have spoken to him. Over to him now to do the job. COYG

Xhaka Demus, no Pliers

Very happy with Le Boss’s selection. Let’s put them in their place and end their unbeaten run. Xhaka to score a thunderbastard from 30 yards. COYG!!


I think ‘thunderbastard’ is now my new favourite word.


30 yard thunderbastard on some thundercunts, how appropriate!

Le Jim

I think we’ll win, but I’m also nervous as fuck. Feel like throwing up.

Let’s fuck these wankers up. COYG!

I should just add that Sp*rs’ bench is one of the shittest I’ve seen in a long time. Twats.


Read the names and went, wow we picked an ‘unheard of’ bench. Then realized that it was the spurs lol. Don’t mind me rushing to work


Look at that bench, still missing Welbeck and Santi, Per and Wilshere is on loan! Thats an awfully large gap to mind!


And lucas


And all without Flamini!

Suraj Tailor

and Chambers!

Anonymous Kumquat

And Sanogo


Let give them a nice beating. COYG… 3 POINTS


That’s what I call options on the bench. Come on you Gunners, Let’s smash the spuds.

Great bench, great team! Let’s do this!!

Great team, and a game changing bench indeed, if need be.


Team selection looks great, quite excited about seeing Coquelin and Xhaka together.


Other than not having Santi available this is the strongest squad (starting and on the bench) we’ve put out there this season in my opinion. So many options off of the bench to impact the game no matter the situation.


….Tension, must win NL Derby, Sp*rs being in a poor run, Xhaka coolness at risk, ……..
Dammmm…. I must admit I’m about to explode like a champagne cork in parkinson guy hand…

Will be watching on my phone just before I run the NYC marathon for the first time. COYG!


I’m sure there are a few Arsenal bars along the route where you can check the score and drink some much needed carbohydrates.

Good luck!


Happy Xhaka started. I thought Wenger would start Elneny, but Xhaka passing will be important. We have Ramsey, Ox and Giroud to call from the bench. As usual, they’ve gone for all power with Dembele, Wanyama and Dier in midfield.
3 points or nothing!!! COYG!!


Come on you Gunners!


Look at spuds bench. Work , Trippier and wanks. Ha ha ha ha. The team name Andy player name doesn’t deserve unbeaten run. Let’s crush them guys. COYG


Not Work I meant Worm.


Sh*t we must have one of the best benches in Europe, full internationals all the way.

Olivier's Beard

I have confidence in our team. Today’s objective is not only 3 points, but also to deliver a football lesson that will put the hens in their place. London is red #COYG


So the mouth breather starts for them, although they were saying he may not.

Bellerin's Hair

Where is c*nt lamela and alli

wilson mughogho

Great team but worried. with xhaka tackling I expect a win


Hmmm….no Alli…. Interesting
Also they’ve chosen to start far from fit Dembele and kane…..hopefully both get injured before ht

Bellerin is the Flash

Damn, I’m shaking. Haven’t been so up for a game for ages. I have a good feeling about this.

yaya sanogo's wacky waving inflatable arm flailing tube legs

So hyped, Bunch of cunts… Lets absolutely beat them down.

Maasai Gooner

So tensed me *


I can’t help but look at the spuds line up and think: Who, what and how did that dross go undefeated for 1 game let alone 10


Thanks for the own goal, Wimmer! We’ll gladly take it.


I HATE sp*rs


MOTM performance today from Tottenham’s standout player: Mark Clattenburg.


Please don’t come up with any excuses, we were utter shit.


Typical stupid arsenal. Spurs played evidently with more heart. We have superior quality but with no other ingredient to go with it. That penalty incident was so stupid for Koscielny. Sumed up the “just a top four team” like us
