Official Arsenal team and EPL preview of Man United away

Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger and the players can carry on from where we left off in the last two games against Manchester United, rather than the general trend against our old rivals in the last decade. Because apart from our win at OLd Trafford last season on the way to the FA cup trophy and our 3-0 demolition of them at the Emirates earlier in the season, it has not been much fun playing them in recent years.

But the Gunners are favourites to win this big match for a reason and even though United have the Spanish keeper David De Gea back in the starting XI, they have a massive injury list including their top two strikers Rooney and Martial and their best defender Chris Smalling.

Arsene Wenger has a few injury problems of his own to cope with but our situation is much better which you can see from the respective teams. Gabriel is fit again and replaces Mertesacker, while Giroud is dropped to the bench with Welbeck coming in and Walcott starts on the right.

Cech
Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal
Coquelin, Ramsey
Walcott, Ozil, Sanchez
Welbeck

Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Elneny, Campbell, Iwobi, Giroud.

The Arsenal bench looks pretty strong as well but hopefully Wenger will not need it and the players that start can inflict more misery on this second rate United team and their under pressure boss Louis van Gaal.

      Little facts before the match ends no matter the results…

      Sanchez is not worldclass
      Ozil is below average
      Arsene Wenger is the worst coach in the world ryt naw
      Gabriel gabriel gabriel , well thats what u get …..
      Walcott – the purposeless flash

      Giroud/Cech/Coquelin/Monreal is what holds Arsenal

    Theo walcott has spent ten years at arsenal, the only difference is that he now has a beard and he’s married

        He and OX can be both sold to City who will most definitely buy them to fill in the home-grown quota.

    Arsenal board should really take a look and fix.
    I myself don’t even see games anymore. It just hurts too much. Some may say I’m not a true fan or whatever. …I know what I feel for this team so well that it hurts me seeing thatbtheres Def something wrong and every year neither the coach or board seem to smell the coffee

    Really hurts

    Arsenal are so fragile mentally. It’s so frustrating as a supporter to watch us constantly wet the bed every time we have a chance to make a statement or take advantage when someone else drops points.

    We’re not fast, aggressive and clinical. That’s our problem with our attack. I don’t blame our defense. Our attack is just sh*t.

      I hope u remember to include ozil in the shit attack , cos defensiveless he is useless so he must be prolific in attack. which he is not.. What a wasted 42mil by a wasteful coach

        He has created over 100 chances this season. More than anyone else ever in the premiership and you want to get rid of him coz he doesn’t score goals????
        That’s really sensible…..

    Never gonna win the league with a profit seeking owner and a penny pinching manager. I hope something bad happens to both of them. Thumb me down all you want, I don’t care, I’m sick of seeing the same crap year in and year out.

    United simply ripped Southampton’s playbook and overloaded the midfield against the poor Ramsey . Wenger should have addressed that

    Why Monreal gave up running for the ball & let the MU player have it ! I noticed it a number of times , this is like Arteta kind of play ! The lost ball led to the 3rd goal ! Unacceptable !!

    Premier league, champions league, forget it. We’re owned by people who don’t care about arsenal don’t like arsenal, and don’t give a monkeys about the people who do. Money is what drives them, and as long as they get top four, get champions league football then they have fulfilled their yearly business remit. Face it, we’re just a business now, not a football club.

    Every time Gabriel comes in for Per he has shocking moments. Jesus Walcott is crap in the middle and crap on the wings. Get rid of him and his wages this summer, it’s been 10 years of chances in conjunction with our title drought. It will take a huge convincing to keep our top players this summer…

    Does anybody know what went on there? We looked like the team selection against Monaco at the Emirates. Looks like we couldn’t be bothered – now we’re behind the spuds and out of the EPL reckoning. That should’ve been an easy win. Are we going to wake ourselves up for the spuds now, or are we going to go in looking just as dozy, passing the ball backwards, and giving away the ball and a goal every time they attack.
