Mustafi returns, AOL front three: Arsenal v Sp*rs teams

43

It’s the North London derby today as we look to close on the gap on Sp*rs to a single point with what would be a much needed victory.

It’s always tough, but here’s the team Arsene Wenger has picked for today, along with their line-up.

Arsenal: Cech, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Bellerin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Kolasinac, Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette

Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Wilshere, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, Welbeck

Sp*rs: Lloris, Trippier, Dier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies, Dembele, Sissoko, Eriksen, Dele, Kane.

Subs: Vorm, Aurier, Foyth, Winks, Son, Walker-Peters, Llorente

Can’t understand the dislikes. Fantastic read. Love this quote about Troy Deeney:
“I don’t know Troy Deeney personally but this has to do with respect,” Xhaka says. “If he believes we don’t have cojones, he can come to our locker room and see for himself.”

I like that!

Much as I love The opportunity. He needs to move to get a game if he wants to go to World Cup

Been asking where Walcott is and what the fuck is he doing for a decade now.

Not a lot of attaching threat on the bench. Hoping for a Leicester type of retune for Welbeck

Against a fast dirty scum, how on earth is he playing Xhaka over Jack who’s starting to get better and fitter and doesn’t lose the ball as much. Pathetic.

I agree, but they are completely different players. If anything jack benches Ramsey

Shiting just a little. Back in the day, one of the classic back 4 would have reminded the like of dele and eriksen what game this was in the first 10. Not sure that exists any more.

I’d love to see an early “Reducer” on Dele

We need to keep 11 players on the pitch and when one of ours does give an opposing player a “Reducer” there’s a fair chance he’ll also get a red card. That’s what happens when every official is shite.

Was hoping Ramey wasn’t fit. Here’s hoping he makes a fool of me tonight and kicks the winner

Everyone’s been crying out for Ramsey – Ozil – Sanchez – Laca in big games but I’ve always thought Wenger has been right not to play them all together. Let’s hope this works out!

On paper, this is a very good line up. Hopefully the effort matches their talent. Come on red army.

Let’s hope Walcott/Welbeck/Wilshire are not going our AOL frontline.

It’s our strongest line up which is a positive however midfield is a worry for me. Dembele and Sissoko’s strength is dribbling whilst Xhaka and Ramsey’s weakness is being dribbled past, that could be a problem for us

Can’t wait to hear Wenger complain about the quality of the refereeing regarding that goal, offside and very soft free kick haha

Wait for the reactions from our fans berating the media for emphasizing on the incident and proving that these things add up at the end.

Somehow that will be interpreted to mean everyone is out to get us.

I have to say, the people on NBCsn did go on and on about it. The halftime commentator added some balance though.

When they’re all fit and the tactics suit, the best players get played.
