So we are getting closer to this absolutely massive game and I simply can’t wait. The butterflies are getting stronger!
Arsenal v Chelsea is one of the biggest games of the year for me, and although we have a very makeshift defence it reminds me of the FA Cup Final when Mertesacker played his first game of the season and we still beat them.
So here is the team that We predicted earlier…
Bellerin Chambers Mustafi Maitland-Niles
Iwobi Xhaka Wilshere
Ozil Lacazette Alexis
And here is the Confirmed team…

I don’t see any differences except the formation means Holding joins Chambers and Mustafi in the three at the back, and Iwobi drops to the bench.
I am keen to see how this defence works out against the Chelsea team, as we all hope that this is the future line-up once Koscielny Monreal retire, which won’t be long.
Otherwise we don’t look very weakened at all. I have a good feeling about this game….
