Guessing which Arsenal starting XI that Arsene wenger will pick on any given day is like playing Russian Roulette nowadays, he seems to chop and change as he is desperately trying to find a winning combination, but I bit the bullet (geddit!) and predicted this team earlier in my Brighton v Arsenal Preview….
Bellerin Chambers Mustafi Koscielny Kolasinac
So let us compare that with Arsene Wenger’s confirmed XI…
Chambers, Koscielny, Mustafi, Kolasinac.
Wilshere, Xhaka, Iwobi.
A very attacking choice I think. With our defence in disarray, it is no wonder that Wenger is going to set up to score more than our opponents. Hopefully Aubameyang will get a lot more service with Iwobi, Wilshere, Mkhitaryan and Ozil doing the providing. Brighton will defend in numbers so it seems to be the sensible thing to do…
it is also telling that Bellerin is put on the bench after playing all of every single League game this season. Has wenger had enough or does the Spaniard just need a rest??
Just as an aside, I found this tweet from Brighton which I thought was quite amusing….
It's Arsenal at the Amex. Please remember to be nice to the Gunners supporters there today as they are having a really tough time of it. Thank God we never had to go through anything as serious as the biggest crisis club in the country are currently #BHAFC https://t.co/XCJW4ODpsq pic.twitter.com/XJdWIzZnmK
