A quick preview for another game in which only a win will suffice to keep the fans from throwing eggs and verbal abuse at Arteta and the boys. It’s a shame we remain at this knife-edge stage, but hopefully we’ll get that second PL win and climb further up the table.
It will not be easy as Burnley, who play nowadays half decent football, will also try to put their foot in and disrupt us as much as possible. The home crowd will try and make things worse of course.
So we have to field a team of men with attitude and purpose and who play a high tempo game that leave the Clarets bamboozled from the start.
If we mean business we can get those precious three points, and I reckon something like these 11 fine Gunners will bag them:
I prefer two in deep midfield for this one and really would like to see Partey and Sambi play together. The attack combines Ode and ESR, and should have either Auba or Laca leading the line. I prefer Saka to Pepe as he is the better all round footballer, but the latter has been working hard to get into the team so he would be fine too.
The back five got a clean sheet last week so let’s not make any changes there.
Come on You Rip Roaring Gunnners!!!!!
