OFFICIAL Arsenal XI for Leicester in EPL opener

It is on Arsenal fans, and before a ball has even been kicked in the new Premier League season the Gunners have been handed a little boost in our quest to win the EPl title for the first time in over a decade, as the German international Mesut Ozil has proved his fitness and will start tonight against Leicester City.

One person other than the Arsenal fans and Arsene Wenger who should be very pleased about that is our new striker Alexandre Lacazette, as it is going to be Ozil who is his main supply line and so hopefully this will help the Frenchman, who Arsene Wenger is starting as centre forward tonight, get off to a good start and help Arsenal to do the same.

There is more good news for Arsenal on the injury side of things as well, because Aaron Ramsey, Mustafi and even Francis Coquelin are fit enough to feature against the Foxes although all three will be on the subs bench to begin with.

We do seem to be a bit light on the defensive side though, with Koscielny injured and Mertesacker not in the squad, so Monreal will be the centre of the back three with Kolasinac one side and Holding the other.

Cech
Holding, Monreal, Kolasinac
Bellerin, Elneny, Xhaka, Oxlade-Chamberlain
Ozil, Welbeck, Lacazette

Subs: Ramsey, Giroud, Ospina, Walcott, Iwobi, Mustafi, Coquelin.

Arsenal need all three points and we have the players to get them, so Come On You Gunners, get firing!

Bob.

      It’s “genius” if It was Moanriho or Pep that had that same team set-up and made substitutes which such immediate impact leading to victory. Guys appreciate your coach,,,,appreciate your team. Get behind the team! We are in for a good season.

    What’s wenger doing
    The left WB has gone to right back
    The right back goes to left back and the two centre backs are left backs ?

    This season it’s already embarrasing. Bould chewing gum, Sanchez laughing in the stands, Ozil dissapearing since the 30th min, Monreal in the heart of the defence, zonal marking yada yada. We’ll have 2 seasons of WengerOut.

    FFS score a goal!! At least get a draw. What’s the point of buying a good striker if the defence is going to collapse like a pack of cards in the wind?!

      Good tactic move: moving Bellerin to the left and Ox to the right. Wenger is a genius.

    @shark.
    I’m not watching, is sanchez really laughing in the stand or did you just say that?

    I was going to say who’s going to hand the transfer request in first sanchez or ox?

    Wenger we need a lemar type signing and a cazorla replacement can’t you see it? WE ALL CAN!!

    #WENGEROUT
    i’ll say it first, nothings changed, only difference is were gonna lose some of the big players soon.
    ozil has been garbage tonight.
    shooting from everywhere now, embarrassing.
    starting the game with no cb. steve bould or wenger? what the fudge is that.
    its the first game of the season ffs.

  12. Ronny

    Ozil not interested? Look at this way maybe he wants some signings before the window shots.
    He knows Wenger will have to do more business if the form is poor. Or he could just be lazy and sh*t!

    Ozil is a luxury player for a luxury team. One where the skill of his team mates can cover for his lack of industry.

    Wow, so this is why they opened with this fixture. Giroud, well f**king done, even helped shore us up at the back.

    So glad we won but we MUST learn from this
    Giroud must stay
    Lacca is class and will score 20+
    Sead is WC
    Welbeck/elneny/belerin are bench players
    And I know you won’t like this but ozil should NEVER be in the starting 11

        Luck my arse. Were goals allowed that should have not stood? The ref was on point. We changed tactics, upped the intensity and went on to win the game. There was nothing lucky about it. Is it lucky when teams like Chelsea and United do the same? Leicster couldn’t hack the pressure we have a history of coming back from behind and either equalising or going on to win games. Look how many times we’ve done that in Europe to qualify when we’ve finished 4th in the past. How often do Leicster?

    Well, that’s what we’ve been crying for so long. Wenger changing tactics and not being so rigid. His 2 subs scored in quick succession and we went on to win the game

    . Leicester are pissed. They fought hard but Arsenal are the come back kings and we remain their bogey team. The team they can’t stop.

    I believed Giroud would score the winner off the bench. That folks, is why you don’t write off Arsenal after only 45 minutes of play.

    laca really changes our attacking game, breaking the defence with one-two’s, what we can’t do with giroud.
    but no still in midfield, xhaka with some good passes but a lot of bad ones, el-neni only crosses back…
    defense a joke, holding still not cut out for the job, kolasinac a real fighter and my MOM.
    ozil a fucking joke, he want’s a pay rise… how the hell can he watch kolasinac fight like hell and still be so aloof? just sell him and get lemar, this guy is a disgrace, a few good games a season and pathetic in the rest…
    we need another top defender and not one but two top midfielders. as it stands we have one ok midfielder (xhaka) and the rest are rubbish.

    Ozil lovers, the guy is just a lazy pussy, why is he in the first team, Wilshere, Campbell, perez, iwobi are better players with heart and passion
    And wenger…………. i’m so right about him, he’s dragging arsenal down, we need a better coach that identifies the team’s needs and sees to them on time, almost all our defenders are make shift or played out of position,
