We are now entering the the final countdown to our home game against Tottenham, and the starting line-up has now been confirmed. As I was hoping for in my pre-game preview, Laurent Koscielny is back in the side to shore up the defence. I certainly feel more confident with this great bit of news. Per Mertesacker just doesn’t have the same understanding with Gabriel.
So the team turns out exactly as I predicted, and I am very happy about that as it definitely the strongest side we have available…
Cech, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Campbell, Ozil, Sanchez, Giroud.
If only Bellerin was back as well, then I would be even more confident…
Tottenham have also named their side, also with few surprises, although I’m glad new signing Son Heung-min is left on the bench
Lloris, Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Alli, Dier, Dembele, Eriksen, Lamela, Kane.
There is nothing left for us to do but start cheering the Gunners as soon as they come out on the pitch and all the way to the end, when Tottenham’s unbeaten run is left in tatters, and the ARSENAL are top of the League!
(Man City are still stood at 0-0 with just 3 minutes of injury time remaining! Ooops City just hit the bar… Come on Villa!
YES The Villains hang on for a 0-0 draw. Now we really can go into the international break at the summit of the Premier League.
Come on you Gunners!!!!
