Nice. Strong bench should it be needed.

Decent line up.
Keep an eye for Pleguezuelo. Hope he’s good enough. He could solve some of our problems.

Sokratis-Holding on Saturday?

Yes I’d imagine so. Leitchsteiner playing tonight must be a hint that Bellerin will be fit for Saturday.

Hope so, but could just be that he needs match practice, hasn’t always looked the sharpest

Richie

Looking forward to this, some interesting selections. The draw for the next round will be made tonight after the Chelsea v Derby game.

Nice. Looking forward to seeing Pleguezuelo, Ramsey sitting deeper & AMN getting a chance in a more attacking role

Richie

Won’t it be AMN sitting deep and Ramsey in the front four?

Mustafi tonight? Must dropped for the weekend then. About time.

I really hope he gets dropped for upcoming league games since he has cost us points already. Moreover, he doesn’t have the calmness and composure required at CB position, his defensive style is hurried.

I’m sure Emery can see his flaws, he should be sold in January. Last season Vidic criticised his defending saying that he was clueless. Big teams will kill us if we play Mustafi.

Why isn’t Jenkinson starting the headline honestly that feels like the biggest surprise
