So Iwobi's punishment for his late night partying is another start. No repercussions, wenger is terrified of conflict. Nelson should have started if he wanted to bench sanchez.

If wenger plays his normal way leaving that fragile back 3 exposed we're in for a hammering. wing backs need to hold back. Wilshere to play alongside Xhaka when out of possession. Stay solid and hope the front 3 might do something special or wait for set pieces.

Not optimistic at all.

That would be a turn up. Think you meant Holding. Although the way Holding played the other night we might be better off with the party boy at the back.

We'll see. The cameras will be trained on him sitting on the bench, waiting for him to laugh when Chelsea score.

Feels like there's only two options two night - a proper tonking (most likely), or one of those weird games where we defy all expectations and play on of our best games of the season. Have a hard time seeing this as a tight 1-0 affair.

Looking forward to Chambers passing the ball out directly to Hazard a few times and Mustafi being 10 yards behind the rest of the defensive line.

We could play Arsenal penalty bingo. Who is going to give away a penalty tonight.......I'll go for Mustafi

Mavropanos given number 27, indicating he is part of first-team squad (although yet to be officially confirmed). Also Joel Campbell has had his squad number taken away from him for second time in six months.

Xhaka has one in him tonight. Do I get better odds with him being a midfielder?

If you have a break with 4 againest 4. YOU HAVE TO PUT IT IN THE *%^@*** BOX


If you cut it back it's pointless

How on earth is that not a yellow card for Kante. From behind, nowhere near the ball, iwobi running at the back 4. As clear as you’ll ever see.

If we can find one positive in this terrible season it is the breakthrough of Maitland-Niles. Still plenty to learn but he doesn’t look out of place at all.

The resurgence of Jack Wilshere as well. Wonderful player.

Indeed. We kill most of our breaks like that. It's really annoying.

That’s where Niles has to do what hazard would have done. Moses makes a kick for the ball doesn’t get there and Niles hurdles the tackle in the box, just drag your leg force the contact and the ref would have to give the pen.

VAR in action tonight. You just know we will be the first to suffer from it

That is what makes me excited about mainland niles development, spots the inside run from hazard, tracks it and gets his body in front and eases hazard out and lets it run through to Ospina. Perfect full back play covering his centre half.

Not a bad half but we haven’t created anything at all

While wages and transfer fees go up ...I reckion skill levels have gone down Kante , Lacazette , Drinkwater shots towards Venus , Xhaka's free kick right down the throat of the keeper .

Mustafi and Holding's style of defending better suited to rugby .

Busy first half not much class on display .

Yeah I feared Mustafi was going to lunge and concede the pen for that move. Pleasing first half, really enjoying Jack Wilshere's performance so far. Xhaka having a good game too but needs to up his game on the set pieces.

Alan Smith quite right, Mustafi giving away a few silly free kicks in the last 5 minutes of the half. He should be doing better than that.

All to play for!

Not true

Looking long term we have 4 players I consider to be at the level of quality to compete for the title.

Özil, Sanchez, Lacazette, wilshere

In addition to this you have Ramsey, mustafi and Kolasinic who aren’t quite that level of technical ability but could make a contribution if used sparingly in a squad that could be successful.

Outside of this I don’t see the remaining players as having much of a future with us or being technically Good enough to compete at the highest level.

We have the biggest drought of talent in the squad for some time and the next manager will rapidly need to bring in new firepower the moment he’s onboard if he wishes to prolong his arsenal tenure after the damage Wenger has caused

Wilshire . Your having a f...en laugh


Ok let's do this one now then d*******

Best player in the last few games without question

Can play 5-50 yard passes with equal ease

Only player in first 11 with bollocks and tons of drive

And there is the yellow card for Xhaka for an 100% identical tackle to one that Kante didn’t get booked for. It’s small stuff but Kante on a yellow for 70 minutes reduces his effectiveness a lot

To be fair Xhaka had a couple of other fouls in the bank. There was a bit of totting up there
