Ramsey and Gibbs come in: Arsenal v Sunderland teams

Arsenal team news 2016

It’s our penultimate Premier League game of the season tonight as we face Sunderland at the Emirates.

Nothing less than 3 points will do if we’re to have any chance of a top four finish – and of course that’s out of our hands too.

Here are the official line-ups.

Arsenal: Cech, Holding, Mustafi, Monreal, Bellerin, Ramsey, Xhaka, Gibbs, Alexis, Ozil, Giroud

Subs: Ospina, Gabriel, Elneny, Coquelin, Iwobi, Walcott, Welbeck

Sunderland: To follow

Looks very good to me. COYG!

Seb Larsson always ups his game against Arsenal in the same way that many ex-Arsenal players do to show us what we’re missing…which, apparently, is the type of player who only really plays when he feels disenfranchised.

Talk about resting players


To me… this is outrageous!
With an injury 3 days ago… it is going to be the 8th match for Alexis in less than 1 month

against the weakest team in the league
at home
with the squad full of motivated, healthy, relaxed players


Calm your outrage




All right!
I will trust in Wenger’s skills to prevent our players from injuries….


Hi Arseblog!

Why are my answers to GYWE are being moderated?


No more rest.

Its just 3 games left all BIG games for us.

What rest?

If he thinks he is up to it, let him play.


Some of the names on the Sunderland team sheet make me chuckle- Ndong, Gooch, Rodwell. Heh.


Reminds me of when the Brazil team had players named Kaka and Dudu, and fittingly hired Dunga to manage them.


What position does Heh play ?


A much stronger line-up than I expected, but I’m very happy that Alexis is fit to play. Let’s put up a tennis score!

I miss Bergkamp

What does Lucas have to do to even make the bench?

C’mon you baggies!!!!


Still no Perez!

£19M well spent.

This is a potential banana peel. Its the sort of game we think we can roll over and don’t take seriously enough.

Plus we need goals to make up a potential GD should there be the remote possibility of City losing one of their last two easy fixtures.

Most of all we need to be sharp in front of goal. We are so wasteful with our opportunities and this may come to haunt us.


Such a lack of urgency by us.

We need goals to even have a slim hope.

Done the win but we just look so lacking in sharpness.

So much effort, huff and puff against frankly a rubbish team on holiday.

Practically we were playing against the keeper (who did very well)

Its all a HUGE question of luck now with Liverpool.

Relying on Boro is a bit of a laugh.
