Official Arsenal team and preview of Aston Villa clash

Arsene Wenger clearly wants his Arsenal team to finish the season with a flourish, and a fluent and stylish one at that, because in this final match of the Premier League season the boss has packed his starting line-up with our most creative and entertaining players.

And despite all the talking up of our flying England international forward in the build up to the game, that does not include Theo Walcott. The exciting young Alex Iwobi is not in either, and neither is Joel Campbell. Instead the boss has gone for the passing and technical ability of Jack Wilshere on the other side of the attacking line to Alexis Sanchez, with Olivier Giroud keeping his place at the point of the Arsenal attack.

The fit again Mesyt Ozil is back and he will have the considerable talents of our little Spaniard Santi Cazorla to unlock the leaky Aston Villa defence. To balance all this attacking intent Wenger has brought back Francis Coquelin to break up play and protect the back four.

Cech
Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal
Coquelin, Cazorla
Wilshere, Ozil, Sanchez
Giroud

Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Elneny, Campbell, Iwobi.

So it looks like it could be a tough 90 minutes for the already relegated bottom side, while hopefully for Arsenal fans it will be a big finish and maybe even a happy ending if Newcastle can do us a favour against Tottenham. COYG.

        Where was this atmosphere all season. Terrific stuff, absolutely fantastic. Fans are the biggest motivational tool a club has at it’s disposal. Fans mood went right up, players effort right along with it. Glad to see Wenger so animated over the last number of games, himself and Wilshere let their feelings be known. Arsenals drastic PL season beats totts best ever one. Mind the huge gap there Poch, how people jumped on his bandwagon Ill never know, like I said, he doesn’t come close. Arsenals fans today make certain people in here look and sound ridiculous.

          Fans are most important motivational tool.
          Arsenal need support not anti BS.
          Neutrals love Arsenal and I couldn’t blame them.
          Supporters really were terrific today.

          ps, that wasn’t a reply above Muff. Just came in to leave a quick comment. COYG, gotta love the Arsenal. What do ya know, we are capable of filling the stadium with real fans. Loved every minute of it.

    so thats 10 more years of Wenger and Giroud cause we finished above spuds for billionth time. Seriously, we’re acting like we won the league. We blew it and settling for a consolation prize once more. There’s nothing to celebrate.
