A very short preview as I have little time today. We visit the proverbial hole of Stoke tonight and the local cave dwellers will be hoping their Orcs will put their foot in and upset the Southern Softies for ninety minutes.
so let’s hope for a manly response and hurt them where it matters: on the scoresheet. This is the team I predict will start:
Must – BFG – Nacho
Bel – Xhaka – Elneny – Kola
Ozil – Giroud – lacazette
BFG to provide height and organisation at the back.
Elneny to help keeping us tight in midfield (Rambo to come on later)
Giroud to provide extra height for set pieces (for or against us) and to crack open the central defence
Ozil and Lacazette, supported by the wing backs, to create the opportunities as well as being there to finish them
Attack like an Octopus, defend like an army of giant Ants.
