Arsenal take on Chelsea in Baku this evening, in the Europa League final 2019.
It’s a game of huge importance for the Gunners. We could win a trophy and then entry into next season’s Champions League.
Here’s the team Unai Emery has picked to do the job.
Arsenal: Cech; Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac; Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette
Subs: Leno, Lichtsteiner, Mustafi, Jenkinson, Elneny, Guendouzi, Willock, Saka, Amaechi, Iwobi, Nketiah, Welbeck
Chelsea: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Giroud, Hazard.
Subs: 12 other twats
COYG! Let’s score 80 goals!
You’d get great odds
Stick £10 on it, then when you win give the money to UEFA so they’ll hold every match of next seasons champions league at arsenal.
In retrospect, I was a little overzealous
Solid, balanced lineup. We got this. COYG.
Shit, i thought kante wasnt playing tonight
anyway, COME ON YOU GUNNERS!
kinda struck me as Chel$hit playing mind games to throw us off
Hope a not-fully-recovered Kante performs badly as he did when sick during worldcup final.
Go on then boys! I feel a big game coming for Laca for some odd reason! Let’s goooooo!!!!
Here we go
Come on you gunners!
Tonigh we fight.
THIS IS SP-ARSENAL!
I would have preferred a back 4 but in Unai I trust. COYG!
Interesting that he didn’t put Mustafi in the first team – I get the impression that when he has a choice the boss choses not to play him!!! Sign of things to come for mustafi? Anyway, here is hoping the boys do themselves and the club a justice!!!
Blogs… did you do the voiceover for the Risk, reward, pleasure and pain | The road to Baku – video on arsenal.com? Or am i going crazy? Is this general knowledge?!
He kept it quiet, but the cat’s out the bag now lol
OMG, you’re right!!!
Strongest line up….. Very upbeat. Especially without mustafi. Let’s hope we ain’t forced to bring him on. #coyg
This formation is for you Sead Kolasinac – we need a big performance from you tonight
UNLEASH the TANK!
Just fucking do it lads. PLEASE. That is all.
Strong line up but very little to bring off the bench…
We have Welbeck and Nketiah to come off the bench to score goal# 4 and 5 😉
Based on Arsenal calling out UEFA prior to the game, I think we are going to be on the wrong end of some bad calls. Hopefully it doesn’t matter and we can win big!!
Come on Arsenal!
12 other twats ??? coyg
Evergreen stuff. COYG!
The kind of game where legends are made. Let’s go boys!
Giroud, made my stomach hurt, every x-Arsenal players scores against us. Will be OK after we’re 4 goals clear though…
Being from the US I didn’t know the time difference for the game in Baku lol the game is going to start 11pm local time?!?! Wtf what is the point of having it there if you are going to do that to them? I understand UEFA doesn’t care except the money and make more convenient for the real audience lol that’s just stupid for having there
I’m really stressed guys….let me do some prayers before the match start.
Damn it, I heard Kante might have missed through injury, but there he is starting.
Anyone else think the refs too close to the ball? A few times we’ve had breaks slowed by him being in the way
Seemed so sensible to throw all them points away at the end of the season
VAR omitted as unused sub from above lists.
Thankfully I chose to follow this on Arseblog and not watch the game and inevitable self destruction when it counts.. Leave the team and our master tactician to fend for themselves in Bukkaku I say…
Screw Emery. Horrible tactics from a horrible manager
I’m done with these clowns.
Best just to put them in Armenian football kits and let them loose. The survivors that make it back can keep their place in the squad. We really should not be surprised
I 100% blame Emery’s tactics. Wtf is he telling the players to do? We’re so timid in possession!
-sighs- I was expecting us to throw it all away and yet I’m feeling down and disappointed….we need a serious rebuild, we’re quite often so toothless even when we have 2 amazing strikers
This game sums up Unai Emery for me. His style of play is so timid. The players are scared of playing. The fear of making mistakes is so much stronger than the desire to play powerful attacking football. Everything is so methodical and timid.
We could have really gone for it in the first half when Chelsea seemed disinterested, but no! Emery kept instructing his players to play safe, slow passes.
Ozil needs to fuck off back to that video game he lives in. Useless cunt.
Ozil slowly walking off has left a bad taste in my mouth, could be the spicy pizza I ate earlier mind you…
Rubbish end to a rubnish season. “The king is dead. Long live the king”
Well, how about that? Words can’t describe this…
Fucking hell. If we had at least played like the game fucking mattered I wouldn’t be so pissed off. You don’t lose 4-1 in a European Cup final. So embarrassing. The shit form in the last few games cost us so much and everyone is complicit. Not a single player who just went “fuck this, I’m not having this”. We need fighters.
All I can say is well done to Aaron Ramsey for getting out. The board have their work cut out this summer but I have no hope of them doing anything of use.
Sort this shit out.
Yeah..no Mustafi we’re going to be solid at the back…wait….who are Wolves?
