Who should start against the Spuds?

Posted by Good Ol' Gnabry almost 7 years ago · 2 replies

Still Villa to play beforehand and of course any injuries or suspensions that may occur from that game would effect the line up

As per every derby, I want to destroy them, completely and utterly humiliate them to the point Lloris begs us to sign him and Harry Kane is wishing he stopped playing football after we released him.

Equally, I was overjoyed with the fighting performance we displayed at the Etihad and a 1-0 win at WHL brings back the 3 points, either way, I expect nothing less than a win.

Coquelin has proven himself a ball winner and great screening component in front of the defence, personally I think he should be one of the first on the team sheet to neutralise Eriksen, who has been playing out of his skin for them and must be given credit for what a brilliant footballer he is. Coquelin and Ramsey playing deeper like at City and we don't give them an inch. Alexis and Santi are no-brainers.






Ideally what would your line up be for the NLD? and any score predictions?

Hmmmm, too early to say. With Arsenal, half the squad could probably be injured by then, but my ideal lineup would probably be the same as yours.

Really tempted to play Walcott, but the Ox would be better in this case with his work rate and power, considering it's an away game and Bellerin isn't that accomplished yet defensively.

I say go for the (unintentional) def-counter again and hit that shitty club on the break:

Szczesny (for the selfie when we win)

Chambers instead of Bellerin (stability over nimble speed)
Monreal (again: stability over speed)


Theo (speeeeeeed)
Ozil (for those counter passes)
Sanchez (speeeeed and trickery and work rate)

Giroud (hold that ball up you handsome fucker)
