    Using the main team to face West Ham in the League Cup is a bad idea, because Arsenal will face Liverpool three days later. The Liverpool match outcome would affect Arsenal’s position at the end of this season, because Liverpool is competing with Arsenal and Tottenham for a top four position.

    Moreover, Chamberlain would be pumped up to show Wenger what he did wrongly to the player. Chamberlain is very quick and pretty skillful, plus there are Mane, Salah and Coutinho, so I don’t think Arsenal can contain them if their first team players’ energy is allocated to the West Ham game.

    The 2nd team is very good this season. Ot mich difference between them and the 1st team. Giroud walcott welbeck le coq etc all capable getting into the 1st squad. We should keep players like lacca ozil and sanchez on the bench just incase we need to pull it back. But I doubt we will. We need to hype up the cup games and make the players want to win

    Considering the fact that we play Liverpool on Friday, I don’t think we need to play all our first team against West Ham due to the fact that we are both challenging for top 4 at the moment. Every in the premier league is a must win for us.

    And eh, I think we can still have a strong team like this

    Ospina
    Debuchy chambers mertz kolasinac/maitland nile
    El neny Coquelin
    Walcott wilshere welbeck
    Giroud

    This team should be able to grind out a positive result against West Ham…

    My thought though.

      1. ALBERTOGUNNER

        ………………..Ospina
        …Chambers. Mustafi. Holding.
        Debuchy. Wilshere. Elneny. Kolasinac.
        ……Walcott. Giroud. Akpom

  4. Mitch Connor

    We play Liverpool very soon afterwards
    Play something like
    ……………………… Ospina
    Debuchy.. Chambers.. Holding.. Monreal
    ………………. Coquelin… Eleny
    Walcott……………. Iwobi………….. Welbeck
    ………………………..Giroud

    1. Mitch Connor

      Against Liverpool something like
      ……………………… Cech
      Bellerin… Koscielny.. Mustf… Kolsanic
      …………….. Ramsey…. Wilshere
      Walcott…………… Ozil………… …. Alexis
      …………………. Lacazette

    2. ALBERTOGUNNER

      I would use this Squad but on a 4-3-3 with Coquelin playing as the DM
      ………….Coquelin.
      …Elneny………….Iwobi
      Walcott. Giroud. Willock.

    There is no way we will win both games so it is irrelevant what XI will play against West Ham and Liverpool. Wenger has already prepared the excuses. December is the new November, 2017-2018 is the new 2016-2017.

    First: Team” A” to play again Liverpool with what is fresh and available:
    Cech
    Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
    Coquelin Xhaka
    Wilshere
    Ozil Lacassete Sanchez

    Second: Team “B” to play Again West Ham:

    Ospina
    Debuchi Chambers Holding Kolasinac
    Niles Elneny
    Iwobi
    Walcott Girou Welbeck

    I thing that M.Niles is more suitable for a defensive role in the middle against a weaker opponent and Monreal is faster than Kolasinac as a left back in that formation against a very fast attacking team.

  7. TW14-TH14

    A few things:

    1. “If we somehow manager to squeeze into the top 4”. This is absolutely nonsense. You write like we’re three games to the end of the season needing a miracle to make it into the top 4. The season isn’t at the halfway line yet and we’re only 5 points off 3rd and 1 point off 4th. Only 2 games ago we were in the top 4, only 4 points off 2nd. Who said our form can’t get better? Besides, in the second half of the season we play Liverpool, Chelsea and City all at home. Why has it become fashionable to write and speak of Arsenal like a club heading into relegation? Do these children of anger think that they get validation from talking ill of the club?

    2. On the game today, Westham are still a loss away from the drop zone and going into a busy festive schedule. They know that their priority is still survival and that is where they focus. This game isn’t the final so beating Arsenal only gets them a possible semifinal tie with the likes of City, Chelsea and Manchester United. I don’t think they would think of the league cup as where to focus their energy when the possibility of winning it still remains remote. Should they exhaust their energy and lose league games, that would be disastrous for them. I see them rotating heavily just like us.
