How? Fred and Mctominay suits a counter attacking style because they are combative midfielder whose job is to protect the back four and win possession of the ball. They do make our press game more effective, but they aren’t gifted in keeping hold of the possession either or are comfortable while being pressed.More like we have a midfield combination that can nullify possession style team. Fred and McT shown us this season we're not just about counter attacking side, contrary to popular belief.
Like PSG and Leipzig, we're so good at pressing now. That's why I think Arteta will struggle.
Arteta? Try and control a big game? Nah. This’ll be a snooze fest similar to how Lampard set up against us. Hopefully we’ll have the correct personnel from the start, I.E. not Juan Mata or Dan James.I think Arteta will fall into the same mistakes Neiglsman made. He will try and control possession with high line, and we will finish them on counter (maybe even penalties).
Even with the win against RB, I m not sure about the result of this game. I m starting to believe some English teams are learning how to play against us, as lampard tactics showed last week.
I don’t. I’ll give you really food odds on Martial not scoring against arsenal. I think he will be completely anonymous.I smell Martial goals in this one. He was constantly on the verge of breaking through against Leipzig despite feeding on scraps for three quarters of the game, and he'll be hungry after watching Rashford's hat trick.
Does it? Ole has used 3 different systems in past 3 games. I have no idea what system he will use this time. Plus can Fred really start 5 games in 14 days?! Same issue with WanB.Team picks itself for once.
Yep, this would be my team too.
Martial is still banned for this game ladsI don’t. I’ll give you really food odds on Martial not scoring against arsenal. I think he will be completely anonymous.
