Lineup for tonight:

Leno
Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Cédric
Xhaka, Partey
Saka, Smith-Rowe, Willian
Lacazette

Aubameyang on the bench, and Azeez too per the recent comments.

Delighted to see Saka and Smith-Rowe back. Aubameyang deserves the benching. Looking for 100% effort and no stupid mistakes tonight and I also expect a difficult game.

Jamie Carragher saying Arsenal could have got themselves into another Özil situation with Aubameyang.

Happy enough with the team given who was available. Only worry is our left hand side with 2 natural right footers. We could see Willian and Saka swap wings during the game.

Slavia play a very high press, if we insist on playing it out from the back they will come after us, prepare yourselves for some nervous moments! Need Partey and Xhaka to be right on it today to beat the press.

Nobody could have seen this coming given the way he finished last season. But as Carragher and Neville say in that article he has been a passenger recently. It just isn’t good enough. I hope he shows the character to fight back from this situation, and I think he can.

It’s an inadequate explanation to put Aubameyang’s decline down to a lack of creativity. He was outstanding before Ødegaard, Smith Rowe and Willian became regular challengers for places. In addition to them we also have Saka, Pépé and Ceballos who can be creative. Not to mention Xhaka who can pass creatively.

I hope it’s a temporary loss of form but as I’ve said a few times, he’s 32 in a couple of months. Hence the possibility that he’s already past his peak is quite strong. Or if he’s not, the chances that he soon will be is a safe bet.

I recognize maybe a handful of names at best. When I was in London in 2004, a cricket match was on TV and I saw Brian Lara play. I wasn't bored for once by the sport.

A lot of energy from Prague, but you can see they lack the quality of most of the teams we face. Need to keep our heads cool and not give them anything here at the start, they won't be able to keep this tempo up all game.

Nice driving run by Smith Rowe. Livened it up a bit.

Was about to post the same thing. We're not on top of our game, but there's a gulf in quality between the sides.

The best thing you can say from our perspective is we haven’t gifted them our customary goal (yet).

Not a single shot on target in 45 minutes yet we don’t have a problem with creativity :laughing7:

Just football from hell. No one touch, little off the ball movement. It’s coming from Emile Smith Rowe or saka or nothing. Partey and Xhaka want to be the same player. No early ball, no crossing with any quality.

Nothing just nothing.

It’s been the most exciting bit so far. Will we cock it up playing around at the back? I always fear the worst. Brought up as a row Z man.

The bloody finishing is the problem not the creativity. Holding to Saka was a very surprising weapon that got him through a number of times. Partey so sloppy on the ball! I don’t know where that Rolls Royce we saw before his injury has gone, looks like someone has snuck in some Skoda parts in the shop. If we can get the ball in the bloody net we’ll be ok you’d think. Need some luck in front of goal.

2 chances againest this lot who are shocking. Only 1 clear cut

It’s not good enough.

It’s not any single area. It’s the slo-mo sequences of progress.

I am starting to wonder when Partey is going to show us the player that we had hoped he was. He needs to make his mark and boss the midfield. Just not seeing it right now.

I don’t think he’s that player LTG. I think he’s more of a Makelele than a Steven Gerrard. Him and player x together is too much.

Right now, I think the best we can hope for is not to concede.

Makelele? Wow. If he became him I’d be impressed.

Yep Arteta needs to change something. Bring on Henry and Bergkamp.
