That is the strongest lineup I can hope for, Pretty sure we gonna win tonight.

Hopeful Gooner

I think it will be a 2-0 Arsenal win maybe even 3. I still thibk we can het top 4 aswell. Now lets support the team and cheer them on COYG

No humble pie

I told use half time and it’s already 2-0 could be more in 2nd half. Excellent line up excellent manager and excellent fans should result in excellent performance more often then not COYG!!!!!!!!!!


Let’s sure hope so.


What are the chances James and Rashford don’t abuse our “fullbacks” all match?

Bai Blagoi

It might be a new era, but the new decade starts in one year


Oh my!


2 years ago, i received a scorpion kick for my birthday…. today i would relish a great fight and 3 points!!
And happy 2020 to you all, brighter days to come!!

Artetas assistant

Served up with love


Made may 1st day of the decade…. holly sh*t, that was goooooood!!!


Coyg!! This is the lineup we all want to work, let’s hope Mikel has cracked it

Arsene's Coat

Pleased to see Kola and Sokratis back to help out our threadbare defense. COYG! ?


The Bosnian is back. I am happy to see that. Maybe Pepe’s left foot is what we have missed for a while.
Whatever the case, I will celebrate the win, if it comes. ?



Yeah! A while has been like a few months. 😀


Happy New Year. A win would be very much appreciated.
PS. Can we play with the hand brake off?


Couple of surprises, glad Kolasinac is fit and Saka’s injury cant be too bad if on the bench. Surprised Nelson was benched but to be fair, probably shattered after the last few games!

Hoping for some magic today, come on boys!

Any actual news regarding chambers, it was rumours that were awaiting some confirmation!!!


Kolasinac is back? I thought the report said his season was over!


His “year” was over, I memory serves me.


COYG. please just 3 points as anyway win


Good line up for the Gunners tonight. I know it’s goodwill to everyone but I do kind of hope one of our players kicks Lingard up in the air. COYG!


pepe will score 2


Half the work done!


Is this the first time our big 4 attackers have started together?




Just win. Let’s try and have just one day where we are not all collectively miserable and bemoaning the everyday arsenal bingo of a shit ref, debilitating injuries, Var fucking us, fatal individual errors or us shitting the bed after being a goal or two up. Also Utd are pretty shit.

Paul Roberts

Disappointed Martinelli is not on the bench yet, but this looks like the best we can offer. COYG!


Interesting to hear that Arteta had the team training on the Emirates pitch at 8AM this morning.

The One

Probably the best lineup we can hope for given the current situation and post-Christmas fatigue. Shame Martinelli couldn’t make it…but I have faith in these guys. Time for PEPE to shine.

Bodie CI5

4 points away from the drop ? so hard to see arsenal like this?


AT LAST! Nothign to complain about this lineup. This is what emery should have done and didnt even dream of. Come on!!!

Make Arsenal Great Again

I don’t think Bellerin is the automatic right back the way AMN has been playing

Billy Bob

Wow 2-0 up ?

Fat mao

Amazing how Arteta has managed to transform this team in such a short period. Hopefully the team will be able to keep it up for the 2nd half. Gosh what have we been missing!


Arsenal is back, we are back, better than ever. Arteta is the greatest manager ever.

Up North

Best first half I’ve seen in ages and God I’m nervous for the second half and us doing an Arsenal again

Right across Sunderland!

Ref is awful. Kolasinac needs to be careful (I think if he gives a funny look to a united player he’ll be off).

United’s players on the other hand, seemingly can take a chainsaw to our players if they want to.
