Regardless of what happens in the Pool-Spuds game tonight, Arsenal can keep ahead of our bitter rivals, and with that keep the pressure on them, with a home victory v Leeds. I think this will be vital for the NLD on Thursday. We need them to have to get a win rather than the other way round. But this is going against my OGAAT principle. The only thing we can really influence right now is tomorrow’s game against the precariously positioned Peacocks, who will be fighting for league survival.
So this is a big game that needs total focus. Leeds are a strange team, at times magnificent and at times naive and more porous than pumice.
I have enjoyed watching them this season, a breath of fresh air with their adventurous and entertaining style of football and fearlessness, and I hope they will survive by beating the Chavs midweek.
They will play at a high tempo and try to disrupt our passing game. The Peacocks will press high and everywhere and they will create decent chances. So we need to play at our best and get those vital three points at our penultimate home game.
Who is going to start for us tomorrow?
It will depend on fitness levels but I expect White to be back and Saka and Tomi to be fit too. So here is my predicted….
Defence: Shinkansen, Big Ben, The Beast, Alfa Pendular
Midfield: The Hoover, The General
Attack: The Force, The Magician, The Goal Thief, The Pouncer (CF).
So an Elneny/Granit midfield, Saka and ESR on each side of Martin, and another start for Eddie the Eagle. Oh and Tavares to start again too.
Come on You Rip Roaring Gunners!!!! 🤩 🤩 🤩 🤩 🤩 🤩
