    I know right, but Flamini though :/

    Just realized he is playing Ozil on the wing, which for me is a huge mistake. He was deployed there during the World Cup and he wasn't great. Why not play False 9 with Ozil in the middle and Sanchez and Chamberlain flanking him?
    I think Wilshere and Ozil will interchange quite a lot, but we'll see Ozil play centrally a bit more..

    What I'm interested in today is how Ozil links up with Sanchez - it's probably to early to see the best of that link up but it'll be nice to see glimpses of it.

    Sanchez to get his first BPL goal today?

    I honestly think Debuchy is a defensive liability, he goes forward far too often which leaves us very vulnerable getting countered. The amount of times Chambers has been exposed because of Debuchy being too far forward is an absolute joke, he leaves far too much space behind him and expects the CB is cover him for the entire match. I hope Mert sort's him out because if Mert gets exposed we all know what happens next




    He needs to find the right balance and defensive discipline imo
    I see what you mean, I think Wenger, Bould & Merta need to drill some more discipline into him as time progresses. He's also quite reckless - he got quite a few red cards for Newcastle didn't he?

    I think Ozil feels the need to prove his critics wrong this season, and my lord if he does...

    Because Sanchez and Chamberlain aren't runners despite their pace, although they have played as runners on the wing it's not their favoured role. They're more creative players who like the ball to feet to run at people but require a bit of space to play.

    You could play them as strikers though. Also there's the lack of height or aerial threat in the team, which against Everton is just handing them every goal kick, meaning you'll forced to play on the ground and they are very aggressive in their pressing, It's going to be hard for you to get decent possession for this reason. You're probably best off getting Giroud to hold up play for the wingers.

    Anyway struggling to see you guys win this game. I think it'll be a draw, bore draw possibly.

    He has had the pleasure of playing with Alexis on the right who has very good defensive work-rate and can cover better than most wide players. Debuchy is an upgrade to Sagna in an attacking sense, if you have noticed everything we do goes through the right hand side because of the combination of Alexis & Debuchy.

    The real problem is having both fullbacks push up. If Debuchy is high up the pitch Monreal or Gibbs should be at the half way line creating a back three.

    Everything has gone down the right for ages now, even with Sagna being more defensive than Debuchy.

    Lol, I can't.
    Well, Sanchez, despite being a brilliant player hasn't got that much of a presence and he will be screwed against 2 fairly physical centre backs for Everton. Giroud despite his poor form does give that presence.

    I don't doubt his attacking quality hence why I said defensive liability. Debuchy is a Right Back not a Wing back his primary job is to defend and support the attack. He stays do far up the pitch it look like he's playing Right winger. Just re watch the Besiktas game. The amount of space left on the right whilst Debuchy to far forward was comical so your 3 man defence won't work.

    Hope so, Ozil should be alright today, but I doubt we will get much of the ball.

    Probably not today, but we can believe, eh?

    Everything goes down the right because they don't have a natural winger on the left hand side. They haven't had one for years, Gervinho could count but I think Wenger generally has playmakers play on the left hand side that cut in and float, Nasri, Cazorla being the most recent examples I can think of.

    Arsenal will get 4th place, nobody can take this away from them.

    Name 4 better and consistent teams than Arsenal at this point in time? As much as I'd like to see them relegated they'll get top 4.
