Official teams and preview of Arsenal v Aston Villa

With all of the teams around us winning yesterday, Arsenal know that nothing less than all three points will do against today’s visitors to the Emirates Stadium. And Aston Villa have been really struggling in the Premier League recently, with no wins and just a single measly goal from their last four league games.

But Arsene Wenger has got a few problems of his own to deal with, as a hamstring problem has left the manager without his star player Alexios Sanchez. So that makes the continued asbsence of two of our other forward players, Welbeck and Chamberlain, even more problematic.

So the return from injury of Walcott and Ozil could not have come at a better time for us and the England striker will start his first EPL game in over a year, with Giroud in the centre forward role. Both Cazorla and Ozil start so we will have to wait and se which of our play makers take the central role and which plays out wide.

Our new signing Gabriel comes straight into the squad and makes up a strong bench, especially in the defensive positions, with just Rosicky and Akpom as attacking options.

Ospina
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Coquelin, Ramsey
Walcott, Cazorla, Ozil
Giroud

Substitutes: Szczesny, Gibbs, Gabriel, Chambers, Flamini, Rosicky, Akpom

Let’s hope for an early goal to settle the fans and players down and that could lead to a big score from the Gunners. But I would take a 1-0 win with a scrappy last minute winner.

    Coquellin has been watching flamini too much wreckless at times but at least he had a decent half… A typical performance game should be over instead a nervous halftime…. Ramsey and Walcott off rosicky and akpom on….can’t believe fans still put their trust in these two mediocre players

    There’s no fight in Ozil !!
    Great passer and bags of vision – no heart and not worth £42m!!!!

      As long as he makes assists, I’m content
      I’m not expecting the perfect footballer
      His assists and the occasional goal
      Assists means Goals

      Lovely stuff. Assist and a disallowed goal. Come on. Are you expecting a lap dance cause we paid 42.5?
