    Its a good thing they have Ox's goal in there, that is a big boost for their chances.

    Definitely helps them a great deal.
    I know a lot of them are moan about missed chances (which admittedly they did have a fair few of), but they also seem to be fontina that Monaco missed some really good ones too.

    3-1 didn't flatter the French team one bit.
    I hope Arsenal can do better in the 2nd leg but I don't fancy their chances.

    You can certainly score more than two goals at Monaco. Their home support is notoriously dire in France, too.

    Depending on who we start with in midfield and attack, I think we can score three goals. The question is whether or not our back five can keep a clean sheet.

    Ospina
    Bellerin Koscielny Monreal Gibbs
    Coquelin
    Walcott Rosicky Cazorla Alexis
    Giroud

    Szczesny, Chambers, Wilshere, Ramsey, Ozil, OX, Welbeck

    Gabriel will still be out with a hamstring issue - and we'll need to play a high line in order to continue attacking, wave after wave, alamo-style. I'd rather Monreal at CB than Chambers, purely because he's been fantastic this season and is more experienced, which we'll need in this game. With that line of logic, perhaps there's a case for starting Rosicky, as he'll give us a lot of energy, positivity and experience in the first half - bring on the OX, Wilshere/Ramsey/Ozil, and Welbeck in the second half?

    Monaco's defence is so strong. I can't see you getting anything.

    Oxlade out for 4 weeks, big miss added a lot to first leg... for both teams!

    I think Arsenal will have an eye on the CL game so might drop points to West Ham.

    I think Arsenal will win in Monaco but won't win the tie and make the QF.

    Can we score 3+ goals against them? Of course we can, Monaco are a good team, but as long as we win this weekend we go into the game on a big high, knowing we have nothing to lose.

    The issue will be tactics, I get the feeling Wenger will go for something stupid like Cazorla Ozil Sanchez Walcott Welbz front 5 leaving Coq to do all the dirty work and that simply won't end well. Ramsey or Rosicky needs to be played if we're to have any chance of bossing the midfield, even if it means playing Ozil out on wing.

    I just hope we aren't all getting carried away, let's be honest with ourselves, we played pretty poor on Monday if I'm honest against an appalling United side, the result is more about name than the team we faced tbh. Fully expect us to win 2-0 next week at best and go out on away goals, but would love to be proven wrong.

    Oxlade Chamberlain is having a wonderful season imo. The guy is 21 and it's quite pleasing to think where he could get to. Dribbling is consistently effective now and his decision making has improved. Only needs to add slightly more final product to really get to another level.

    He's way ahead of where Walcott was at the same age tbh

    I really like this line up. The entire front 5 are very clinical and it would be likely to see a few goals. @Wenger Use this plz

    I think I was guilty in the first post of just making you lot try to feel as terrible as possible post-first leg. I genuinely don't think the tie is put to bed yet.

    I DO think you can score two or more at Monaco. You did at Allianz, and you came close to turning it around against Milan back in 2012. The issue is how you start really. Monaco's home atmosphere is renowned for being dire in France and beyond, and if you start well and get an early goal it's all up to you.

    It might make it easier you have a liberated feel to the game, too. Similar to Schalke at the Bernabeu really. You can play with a creativity and a freedom. We'll see.

    Why would we play Monreal at CB over Mert? I know lots of people hate Mert but tbf Monreal was pretty terrible at CB most games (and that's coming from arguably the most vocal supporter of Monreal on this forum). Sure, it did the job of toughening him up, but he's been playing brilliant at LB and definitely isn't a CB.

    Also don't see why Ozil would be dropped, he's been playing much better than Cazorla the last 4 or 5 games, a midfield three of Coq Rambo and Ozil has balance and attacking intent, which I like with a Sanchez Walcott Giroud/Welbeck front 3.
