Finally finally and finally there's a change in the formation from Wenger... Though it was not a perfect start with this lineup and need to play more in order to attain perfectness..

It left us fairly open at the back at some points, which led to odd defensive situations (see Negredo goal), but it was nice to see Wenger try something different. I don't think it's our version of Chelsea's magical formation shift, but having Sanchez and Ozil on the wings with Giroud in the center does have its benefits.

Yup, it suits our midfiled and also offensively.. but our backline is vulnerable at times, we need some shield in the midfield (like Kante for Chelsea) to have a better balance defensively.. we can also use Bellerin at right midfield position who could contribute both in attack as well as quick recovery in defense...

This formation need a good finisher upfront like Benzema, Higuain etc who are good in air as well... with Sanchez and Ozil in free roaming behind the Centre forward, both will cherish in this role...

How about getting Lacazette who can work very well in the formation and with our players. He may not be an aerial threat like Giroud, but he has the mobility, the talent, and the quality to be the striker we always needed since rvp.

Then instead of playing Giroud in the 3-4-2-, let's play Welbeck to make him great again.

Which he can do if our manager would start playing him more often. He was great when he first arrived.

but he needs to stay away from doctor's room.. English players are so fond of treatment table..

This new formation is getting the results we want, but lacking our fluid attacking game which Arsenal is known for.

Though it may not be a very attacking formation as the 4-2-3-1, it does have freedom for the attackers which if given enough time to adapt can cause some more fluid attacking game to entertain the fans and have a greater chance of scoring more goals.

So glad we switched to this formation. I hope it will give us the result we need against Tottenham which will not only help us but also hurt them in the title race.

I just hope they beat Man U so we can have a chance to claim that top four Champions League spot.

OptaStats:

  • Arsenal have now scored 29 league goals in the final 30 minutes of games in the Premier League this term; the most of any side. Drama!!!

  • The Gunners have also netted more second-half goals in the Premier League than any other team this season (40).

Gibbs, Monreal, Holding, Ozil.

Gibbs, Monreal, Holding, Ozil.

Wouldn't say this shape suits Ozil at all, he's one of the few that seem to have a hard time adapting to it. Ox, Ramsey, Xhaka, Monreal and Holding have upped their game massively in this shape, but anyone playing CF seem to struggle and Ozil is still not finding the space he's used to. Bellerin also seem to not get the position he's playing, with Sanchez constantly screaming at him to cut inside and go forward against Stoke.

Ozil is definitely more suited to a classic #10 position.
