Glad to see us revert to 4 at the back. An extra midfielder could help us control the game.

I know Emery likes to throw in a surprise every now and then in the starting line up but literally wouldn’t have guessed at least 6 of those starting tonight! Hopefully that throws Watford off!

Xhaka and Torreira are a tremendous double pivot. If they do well, we’re going to be able to attack at will. On the other hand, Mustafi at right back is less than ideal. Still, if we win this 5-4 I won’t be complaining.

The one thing I really like about this line-up is there is no small amount of toughness and general bastardry in it to deal with Twatford’s usual attempt to kick us off the park.

One thing Mavro showed last year was, he doesn’t take any crap. Hopefully he can kick Deeney a lot tonight!!

Wow didn’t see that one coming!! You have to say Emery does make good use of the squad which, in turn, probably has a good impact on squad dynamics!!!

So I didn’t see that coming but think the good use of the whole squad helps to foster a great team spirit 👍

I would honestly prefer Jenko as the right back to mustafi. What’s the point of starting him in Dubai and making him prove himself if ure not going to give him a chance. In what world is mustafi a safer defensive option?

Crumbs what a start – goal to arsenal, Dooly sent off but think we need a second goal as they are still looking dangerous!!! I reckon they will get another player sent off if they carry on with the dirty tactics, should have sent the other savage off!!!
