Arsenal v Spurs Confirmed Teams – Arteta plays – Ozil back on wing

“You enjoy it after the game if you win,”

“You feel suddenly on the Monday before the game that something has changed and you wonder first of all what has changed. Of course it’s the tension before the derby.

“Before you have the tension and you have the focus to prepare and to give your team the best chances to win the game. That’s what you focus on. Satisfaction comes with the feeling that you have done a good job so let’s do a good job first.”

says Arsene Wenger.

All Arsenal fans just love beating Tottenham every year, and this should be no exception. Obviously Wenger had no interest at all in winning the League Cup which is why he made TEN changes from the easy Aston Villa win to rest our top players for this much-more-important clash.

But with our top players available and the defence only needing to worry about Adebayor or Soldado, then I really can’t see this being any less than a massacre in Arsenal’s favour….

Okay here is the starting line-up:

Chambers, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs,
Wilshere, Arteta, Ramsey,
Chamberlain, Ozil,

Wenger has picked Arteta ahead of Flamini. He is least likely to pick up any cards, but we can also be happy that Mertesacker and Gibbs are now fit enough to make the team. I’m not sure about Ozil being pushed out to the wing again. It seems Wenger is determined to get him to play better out of position. And why is Sanchez back on the bench? Has Wenger decided that he can’t play with Ozil?

Well the stage is set, all we have to do now is watch the goals go in and go out and celebrate afterwards.

    Yes Ozil plays in 10 and Wilshere on the wing.
    I just hope they will interchange otherwise Townsend will have a field day with Wilshere as he never tracks back (and has no pace anyway).

    Losing this game is not even an option.

    Gunners till I die 🙂

      I don’t mind Jack on the wing because he tracks back, would’ve preferred Sanchez though for his work rate, additional pace and goals. Maybe we’ll see him in the last 15 minutes or so.

    Guys I think all the players will interchange, most of the time you see Ramsey, The Ox, Cazorla on the wings and Ozil in the middle, it’s is team team fluidity.. All of them interchange..

      Doesnt change the fact that ozil is a complete liability defensively on the wing and lacks the stamina to get up and down the pitch so is not involved in any counter attacks.

    total LOL at the knee jerk reactions above, how old are all of you? this is football! it’s a rollercoaster, instant wenger out spam and no faith in our team. shame on you COYG’s!

      1. Hellhound ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

        its like a 4 year old child’s reaction to not getting their own way, Girouds shit, gets injured bring back Giroud, Ozils shit , scores , he’s the best, Ad nauseum for Wilshere, Ramsey, Walcott cazorla,we lose = Wenger out , we win Wenger is ok, like all the doomsday brigade have any idea how to run a football club.
        Support the team, we have been spoilt by the invincibles , i swear people think we should win every single game all the time. It’s football it doesn’t happen, especially in the best and most competitive league in the world.

    People complain about Wilshere and Ramsey playing together.. But you lot seem not to even have a clue.. Ramsey, Wilshere and Cazorla were all crucial in us winning the FA CUP and CHARITY SHIELD.. Go watch those games and see how those 3 players were so crucial…

  11. ozy ( User Karma: 0 ) says:

    i thinks he plays 4-1-4-1 and ozil on the wing . because he sees that Santi is not fully fit and ready to start.. thats why he had to change the formation..

    wenger likes to play creative AM on the flanks ,, so if santi is not fit it has to be ozil..

    id prefer tho if he plays 4-2-3-1 ozil as no10 and alexis and the Ox on the flanks.. butt again alixis has played a full 90 min last tuesday

    Lazy Chamberlain gets a starting spot where as the ever hardworking Sanchez is on the bench again for a second weekend running.
