To Take a Backseat to the (Actual) Football?
Probably not, but so it goes in this modern era. Still, having only earned one point from six in our opening two fixtures, it could be argued that winning today–alongside completing some transfer business–is critical for Arsenal’s early season. What say you? Please join us for breaking news and in-match commentary. Line-ups should be out shortly…
Alexis to Lead the Line Again, But this time Ozil is in the Hole.
Arsenal team: Cech, Bellerin, Holding, Koscielny, Monreal, Cazorla, Xhaka, Walcott, Ozil, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Alexis
Arsenal substitutes: Ospina, Chambers, Gibbs, Coquelin, Elneny, Wilshere, Giroud
Substitutes: Pantilimon, Janmaat, Zuniga, Watson, Success, Sinclair, Pereyra.
Arsenal set out a midfield heavy team with both Cazorla and Ozil in central positions. Watford will be dangerous with Ighalo and Deeney at the sharp end of their attack. Will Arsenal try to dominate possession and keep a spread pitch or will Theo and the Ox be used more on the counter?
Please join us in the comments today and let’s add to whatever good feeling might be had from the 99% sure signings from Spain, Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez, with three points at Watford this afternoon.
Go on then…
