We were told by Arsene Wenger to expect an experienced line up tonight and we certainly have that, and it looks like we are going to be going to be going for goals.
This was my predicted line-up earlier….
Debuchy, Mertesacker, Holding
Chambers, Coquelin, Elneny, Maitland-Niles
Walcott, Wilshere, Giroud
And this is the confirmed team….

Well that is nearly exactly what I predicted, but I also said that I expected Welbeck to play at some point, and Wenger has actually picked him to start as well. But who would have predicted him to replace Mertesacker!
You can always expect a surprise from Wenger…
