So at last the international break is finally over and we can get back to the serious stuff of Arsenal’s race to the Premier League table. Not only did every Arsenal player score in the internationals, but it looks like we didn’t get any more injuries either.Wenger said: “From the internationals we only have positive news,”
“We are still waiting for Campbell, Alexis and Ospina to return, but they all texted back to say they are OK, so we just have to see if they were objective in their assessment.”
Obviously we are all worried about Alexis after his grin strain against Man United and I’m hoping that Wenger will rest him for this game. Koscielny is due a fitness test but I don’t think Wenger will start him even if he passes. No need to rush when Gabriel and Mertesacker seem to do okay together as well…
Mikel Arteta and Matthieu Flamini also return from injury so Wenger really has a big squad to choose from tomorrow, but I have a feeling after his comments earlier, that he intends to play his best team except for Sanchez and I think it’s time to give Giroud a confidence booster for at least the first half of the match, so I’m going to predict……
Bellerin Gabriel Mertesacker Monreal
Coquelin Cazorla Ozil
Walcott Giroud Ramsey
What we need is to race into a good lead (like against Man United!) and then sit back, relax, and save some energy for the Bayern game in midweek….
Does everyone agree with this team?
