Hopefully Arteta shows some ambition and not clone the cowardly tactics Lampard used last weekend.
Arteta will freak out exactly like Lampard and try to setup defensive. Ole just has to bet on that and kill him right there. They all fear our offensive power and the fact that we can take decisions on and off the ball faster than most teams. You’ll see.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.
Always a bit nervous when there's no fullback on the bench and we have Shaw starting, think we should take Brandon instead of James.Another tactical battle incoming. I would like to see a similar team that played against Leipzig.
Wan-Bissaka Lindelof Maguire Shaw
Henderson; Tuanzebe; Matic, van de Beek, James, Mata; Cavani
Any win will do. We play Istanbul next week, so realistically we should be able to make a couple of changes there (Henderson, van de Beek, Tuanzebe, Martial could all play for example). Then we play Everton... If we can get over the line in these two fixtures, then things suddenly don't look so bad after one of our worst starts. Jumping the gun here of course, but we could be one of the dark horses along with the likes of Spurs that could secretly fancy challenging for the title... This season is bonkers, so why not?
Yeah, I feel the same sometimes but I think Tuanzebe can play anywhere along the back line. Even if we were incredibly unlucky and lost a CB & FB during the game we can drop McTominay or Matic to CB.Always a bit nervous when there's no fullback on the bench and we have Shaw starting, think we should take Brandon instead of James.
Looks like we are struggling against all teams, then. People said we would struggle against PSG attack, we would struggle against Leipzig's high press, now Arsenal. Is there a team we wouldn't struggle against?Tough game. Arsenal are very defensive under Arteta and defensive teams are where we struggle.
I want to see the diamond again and I think it will be too much for Arsenal.
They are, but I’m just wary they’ll do something similar to what Chelsea did and essentially play for a draw. Hopefully Aubameyang and Lacazette continue their terrible league form for any chances they do sneak in.Arsenal's a bit shit and frankly we should be getting all 3 points.
DDG, AWB, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Pogba, Bruno, Rashford, Greenwood.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.
Especially as Arteta will be most likely drive his team into stadium in a massive London double decker red bus.
ie: as you are the undisputed team selection king, can you please give me a clue?
