Can Arsenal finally show character away from home? By Konstantin
The top 4 lies no longer in our own hands. We blew golden chances to take advantage and now we hope and pray Chelsea don’t win at Old Trafford. But before that lies the small matter of Leicester away.
Emery has so far been pathetic with his rotations. He has ruined the chances we had and the reason to let Auba out of the side for the Wolves game was another example. Not that our attack is the main issue away, but for me we have to play our strongest squad.
Not that even that is good enough for the top 4, but at least we can try. The defeat at Home now really hurts. Leicester is a ground where we have won before, but last season we lost and I don’t see us winning this time either.
It means, showing guts. Defending not like idiots and caring for the shirt. Something, those players are incapable of and we also have a manager whose best achievement is winning the Europa League. Sometimes it feels like we’re aiming to play in it again.
Regarding the line up, I would play 3 at the back – Kos, Sokratis and Monreal or Mustafi, both are bad choices, but it is what it is. Kolasinac and AMN as wing backs, Xhaka and Torreira, Ozil in front and Lacca and Auba.
If we don’t win, we deserve the Europa League. Let’s pray that those players show a miracle and deliver a win, then it’s up to United to shut Chelsea, and maybe we can have the top 4 in our hands again.
Even I don’t believe that those ifs would come up, but maybe, just maybe, they can prove me wrong for once. Sokratis said the players are not stupid. I would like to see that on the pitch.
