There are no surprises I’m afraid and although I wanted Alexis to be dropped, as I predicted Wenger is still hoping that he will come good one day. Personally I would have him training with the reserves!
So here is the team I predicted earlier…
Koscielny Mustafi Monreal
Bellerin Wilshere Xhaka Maitland-Niles
Ozil Lacazette Alexis
And here is Wenger’s pick…

The only difference is that Wenger changed to 4-2-4 and has picked Iwobi in place of Mustafi so the boss is going for a proper attacjking side,, and trying to confound Klopp I am guessing!
What do you think?
