Tactics to use in our remainder of the season to win games by Briantole.
Here are some tactics Arsenal could use in the remainder of the season to win games. A winning formula we can use. With our rich squad full of talented players how can we alternate tactics with variance to the opponents we face?
Well here is an idea…
Against teams who hold back to defend and break on the counter.
These are very tricky games in which we need to keep our eyes open making very few mistakes at the same time.
Such teams like West Ham, Crystal Palace and more are what we need to watch out for.
We can use such a lineup
It’s an obvious choice for a goalkeeper right back and left back.
As for our two center backs I would pick Per and Koscielny as I believe they are more than capable of handling the aerial threats and complimenting each other very well in such situations.
I would choose Coquelin and Elneny to partner each other in midfield.
Coquelin is more potent in breaking opposition attacks while Elneny has great stamina and makes strong runs while also technically gifted. Both are very good passers and holders of the ball.
Mesut Ozil is another obvious choice in AM, being very important in opening spaces and providing important passes.
I would go with Joel Campbell and Alexis Sanchez, who will come in handy in providing attacks on the wings and giving us the all-important width in such games.
Finally, I will select Giroud to lead the line.
He will provide strength and prove to be a nuisance to defenders whilst providing an aerial threat too.
In short, the line-up would be
Bellerin Mertz Kosc Monreal
Campbell Ozil Sanchez
Against teams that press up the pitch, IE Everton, Tottenham and Manchester united.
I would still use Cech, Bellerin and Monreal.
Now Gabriel and Koscielny would be my Centre back pairing because I believe they can handle themselves properly under very tricky situations unlike Mertesacker.
I would use a Coq Ramsey pairing since Coq is a cog and Ramsey is an all-rounder with so much energy and always a threat moving forward.
Ozil still maintains his position as the AM because of his class and character.
The wing positions
I would pick Chamberlain and Sanchez because of the Ox’s pace, energy and power. Providing great counter attacking capabilities.
Giroud also maintains his position as the lone striker as with his abilities to bully defenders and bring others into the game.
We need to be very stubborn defensively and ensure we utilise the mistakes of our opponents very well to hurt them.
And again, the line-up in short:
Bellerin Gabriel Koss Monreal
Ox Ozil Sanchez
Against the very top teams.
Well you need to produce your very best and a very energetic lineup while also being clever.
I would still use Cech Bellerin and Monreal as very important members of our backline.
Koscielny and Gabriel would be my Centre back choices since they handle themselves well under pressure.
Coquelin will partner with Elneny because they are good battlers of the ball and are good in possession and passing the ball.
I would then use Sanchez and Ramsey as wingers because of their precious work rate, stamina and defensive ethics.
They are also good goal scoring threats. Which makes them great contenders for the position.
Giroud takes the final position as the lone striker with his ability to act as the target man as well as being great at scoring.
Bellerin Kosc Gabriel Monreal
Ramsey Ozil Sanchez
We can alternate these lineups. When it suits the game. That may give us a winning formula till the end of the season
Do you agree with Briantole? OR do you think simplifying our team to the opponents way of playing, would simply allow us to become predictable and make our lives difficult?
