The big question for Arsenal fans today was about who was going to fill the third forward position for this massive Champions League game against Barcelona, as the team selection of Arsene Wenger for the Hull game away int the FA cup had all but told us what team we would see tonight.
And the man who has got the nod from the boss is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, somewhat surprisingly. Clearly the boss thinks that his pace, power, direct running and perhaps most importantly his unpredictability could be the thing to pull off a surprise against the current European champions.
The rest of the Arsenal team is as we would have expected and hopefully the rest that they all got over the weekend will give the Gunners an adge but they will still need to be at their very best to get a good result and keep this two legged affair alive for whaen we go to Spain in three weeks.
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Sanchez
Subs: Ospina, Chambers, Gibbs, Flamini, Campbell, Walcott, Welbeck.
So here we go Gooners. Can we stay in the game long enough to bring our super subs into play? Can we get to Barcelona with a chance of getting into the next round? Of course we can!
