I, for one, am dreading Arsenal playing Sunderland this weekend. Not because I think we could lose the game, but I am thinking we could lose some more players to injury. We all thought our injury list was bad before but to lose Sanchez and Cazorla last week on top of Coquelin’s three months we are looking thinner and thinner every week.
But we still have a very good team despite all the injuries, and here is my opinion of our best line-up….
The Ox Ozil Campbell
Monreal Koscielny Mertesacker Bellerin
In the case for the defence, I am very happy that we still have a strong line-up at the back, and we can all hope that Giroud has still got his scoring boots on. Will stll hav the assist king to do the business, and if The Ox and Campbell can keep running around confusing the defence, Ozil may even chip in with another goal.
Flamini and Ramsey can take turns marauding up the field. Hopefully last weeks run out will have tuned up the Welshman to a smidgeon of match fitness, and I have no worries when it comes to the back four, well not against Sunderland anyway…
Obviously our main worry will be that Joel Campbell has one of his confidence-full games again and gets into he think of things, but my main source of tension will be how The Ox gets on. He has also been out for a while, and to be honest I don’t think he was playing well before that. But who else could be play in his place?
Okay I’ve had my say, do you agree that this is our strongest line-up or not?
