BFG fit again but should Arsenal START him against Chelsea?

As well as the verbal sparring and not so subtle digs between the Arsenal boss and his counterpart at Chelsea, there is a very important game of football to consider. And although both teams have players like Ozil, Giroud, Alexis, Ramsey, Oscar. Fabregas and Hazard, with the quality to turn a game with a moment of brilliance, it could well be that the tactical battle between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho proves to be the deciding factor.

Width v Defence gives Arsenal boss BIG decision for Chelsea

As well as a fierce battle for bragging rights, the top of the table clash between Arsenal and Chelsea tomorrow also sees the latest tactical battle between Arsene Wenger and his tormentor-in-chief Jose Mourinho. And as usual, we expect it to be a clash of styles, with our Prof preferring his exciting and fluent brand of football while the Chelsea boss would play 11 keepers if he was allowed and just needed a point.

Arsenal debate – Bellerin or Debuchy against Chelsea?

I doubt that I was the only Arsenal fan to be surprised to see the name of our France international right back in the starting line-up instead of the young Spaniard Hector Bellerin at the weekend.

Arsenal to play Walcott with FA cup final in mind

With Jose Mourinho bringing his title chasing team to the Emirates for Arsenal´s next game, it does not take a genius to work out what tactics the negative one is going to employ. Arsene Wenger will know that there will be a big blue Chelsea bus parked in front of the Gunners at the weekend, so I don´t expect Theo Walcott to start as there will be no space for him to use that blistering pace.

Why Wenger got it WRONG for FA cup clash!

Arsenal tactics under question again!! by DN

It will not be a big topic of conversation among Arsenal fans this week, as we are too busy celebrating the Gunners reaching a record breaking 18th FA cup final. But the nerve wracking nature of another semi-final against lower league opposition should raise a few questions.

Which Arsenal stars are UNDROPPABLE for FA cup semi?

We are all expecting Arsene Wenger to make quite a few changes to the Arsenal starting line-up for the FA cup semi-final against Reading at Wembley this evening. Even though it is a crucial game for the Gunners and our hopes of lifting the famous old trophy for the second year in a row, the Frenchman will still field some of our lesser used stars.
