Great lineup though bench looks a tad light.


Yeah – put Tomiyasu, Timber, ESR and Partey on that bench and it’s a different looking picture. First 11 looking good though.


Totally 👍

89 again

Weve done our best work this season when teams have tried to come out and play. Hopefully they’ll be feeling themselves after Weds. Should be a good game.


Good point! If the match against Luton was described as a “cup match”, could this one be “european match” where opponents tend to be more aggressive in their approach which suits us?

Expecting a good game but I’m (surprisingly) not particularly nervous.


We will win game and remain on top of the table. Coyg

Despite the handful of injuries, that does appear to be Mikel’s strongest 11.

One Beat Off

Indeed. Walters on the bench! Up the academy!


Strongest lineup, even if I half expected a jorginho start because arteta is banned. Sort of figured he’d want all those on the leadership group on the field for this.


I just hope Raya doesn’t f**k up today.

If I was Ramsdale I’d want to be gone next month.

I hope Raya’s defenders don’t let him down today like they did twice at Luton.

Raya also started the move which let to our winner at Luton. His long pin-point pass to Jesus drew the foul which let to that final attack and goal.

He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

Haha! Defenders. Don’t make me laugh. I suppose defenders were to blame for all his other errors.


Raya’s biggest defender is arteta


You’re an absolute sausage. He can’t be fucking up too much, considering we’re top of the league when we win.

He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

It’s like a massive kick in the nuts! He’s got to be thinking if he’s not getting a chance after the stinker Raya had, he’ll never get it.
Chant Ramsdale’s name loud and proud you mighty traveling Gooners!


Why? To cause disunity when it’s not needed?

He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

Think you might want to speak to the manager about that.


Just support the team who is playing. It’s quite simple

El Mintero

Raya is clearly Arteta’s #1 – so be it. It’ll either work out or it won’t. Sell Ramsdale in January and end the drama. I’ll be sad to see him go but he’s too good to be on the bench.

He is not the one

Want to laugh at united but a bit cautious to do so b4 we play. Good line up. .COYG


They’re not just shit, they’re inconsistently shit.


You mean consistently 💩?

I want to laugh at them too but then I realise I still want them to finish above sp*rs.


Zinchenko against Bailey gives me jitters. Lets hope Gabi & Rice are sharp


Not going to target Raya much today then ? Hope the two centre backs just go for everything ! Not much getting past those two methinks ?

He’s got no hair but we don’t care...

FFS! Arteta might as we kick Ramsdale in the balls every day. After a shocking performance by the teachers pet Raya against Luton, how the hell did he keep his place. Pathetic.


I just hope we’ll have a good ebening.


It’s a winnable game for us and we know villa will get chances so defensively we have to play smart and confident and not gift them easy chances-I’m looking at you Zinchenko. My only worry is that we have one consistent impact sub in Trossard and not much else. Eddie and Riess are inconsistent but can score under pressure. Good news is front 6 have been scoring and contributing for us.


Who’s this Kiwier fella? Young kid from New Zealand?


Can someone please shoot Spit the Dog Carragher !!! Playing ok just need the first goal a terminal painful Carragher injury and normal service can be resumed !


Why is that not a penalty please ?


Raya out
