— But it won’t happen.
Full of cold and not much time for a preview, so I suggest you read the Arsenal match brief instead (with some good stats in there!):
In terms of starting eleven, I guess it will be the same as last week’s, with starts for Xhaka and Guendouzi in the middle of midfield – in my opinion a guarantee for conceding at least a goal again tomorrow – and Rambo in the hole. In attack we will see again OLA: Ozil, Laca and Auba and at the back it is Cech, Monreal, Sokratis, Mustafi and Bellerin
The starting 11 I would like to see are:
- Give Holding and Sokratis a chance to grow as a CB duo
- For flip sake start with Torreira and Xhaka in de DM-Pivot: for balance and control
- To show that I do not dislike Guendouzi, I would play him the hole as the B2B midfielder. That way he can support the attack without leaving our defence exposed. It would be good to see how he would do in that position as we need to start planning for life after Rambot
- Laca, Auba and Ozil to play together again and build further on their growing collective form.
