That’s a pretty strong lineup! COYG

Jack

So much hype around Saka in the build up and he’s not even starting.

SexyMooli

He’s 17. The talk has only been there as he just got his debut recently. His time will come.

High gooner

The journalists asked Unai a question, and Unai answered. No one said he would start

Glenn

Arsenal down to 10 already 🙁

Mayor McCheese

Xhaka red card in the warm-up. Typical.

Naked cygan

Why is Saka on the bench?

martin

Because Emery didn’t pick him for the starting 11

AlbZ

Love this line-up – excited to see the progress of the academy graduates and hope they grab their chance so we can start enjoying another project youth.

Jace

What’s the formation?

Bosscielny

You missed the club captain on the lineup, blogs.

Andrew

Don’t we get 11?

Naked cygan

Did we get a red card before the game? I see 10 players starting!!

G4e

Why are we playing with only 10 when the opposition has 11?

Ilari

Because we are that good

BODMAS

COYG… Spearing the Liverpool hero…lol

allezkev

Emery must be confident

Paul Roberts

Blogs, how hard is it to put the full team up? It’s not the first or second time is it? Love you anyway! COYG!

Bobbyp

Disappointed Jenks didn’t get a start.

Declan M

Yeah. Think he’ll be off this month.

goongot

hearing this stan junior was born.

poly

yes, he does

Nathan

Unfortunate that Jenkinson doesn’t get a start ahead of Lichtsteiner!

Giuseppe Hovno

I hope maitland niles is in midfield and we don’t have a back 3

Martin

Better to have back 3 as it gives Kolasanic more freedom

Theenge

Asked about fielding 10 men instead of 11, Emery replied, “in our moments on the pitch and on the bench, we play with the strongest lineup for this cup. We respect the cup and also opponent but I think in our moments, 10 men should do a job”

CroArse

I would always play Jenko instead Lichstainer.

Hantal

You got your wish

Hantal

My mistAke, Kos is out not leich

Martin

Well they both played

Serpent

Will Ramsey pull a massive hamstring after like 40 minutes?

Paul Roberts

Koscielny injured in warm up Jenks to come in…

Hantal

Willocks been so much better than Eddie this season
