So Arsenal are half going for it tonight with a side that is more than good enough to beat the Swiss Champions, and I am just a little surprised at how many first team players Wenger has chosen to start the match.
So here is his decision. Do you think he has picked the right players for such an inconsequestional game?
Here is the confirmed line up….
Ospina, Gabriel, Holding, Koscielny, Gibbs; Xhaka, Ramsey; Iwobi, Ozil, Lucas; Sanchez
Subs: Cech, Monreal, Mustafi, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Giroud
What do you think? Is this the sensible team to choose, considering that we are already qualified and have nothing to gain from the match?
Good line up
Alexis my only concern.
i think wenger is right with the statement that sometimes stopping a player in form is more dangerous than resting him and anyway a worldclass player would want to play in any game with prestige (EPL or UCL) to better the stats ^^
not bad, i think big players like sanchez would really want to play in every champions league match so wenger had to play them. COYG
chances of winning this game are very slim because of this fringe lineup.
I hope we win but basel look to edge us out
Am okay with the selection, especially Holding and Lucas. It’s a win.
Good finish by Perez and again Sanchez pulling the strings
I’ve always said Lucas needs to be played with the big boys!
Hope he has a good 90mins….while saying that, I could have scored that…
…and that!! lol
Possibly, but as a LW, would’ve you been there as a Johnny on the spot?
Nah, I’ve tweaked my hamstring, so probably wouldn’t have been risked…
You whut mate? You injured? You got Arsenal potential!
PEREZZ!!!!!! Gibbs-Perez looking good so far
to all those aob’s. Holding? 2 Mill, future Arsenal legend. Perez? just banged 2 in, in a position walcott has been playing all season and never get in those positions. Eye for talent is exceptional.
Ludogorets please hold on
Whats up with our midfield?
Ozil looking unusually sharp…
Yes. He seems more aggressive than usual. Ozil usually plays at soft easy pace you know? 🙂
both chances were created by good view and passing of özil even if he doesnt have a lot of assists his play is really defense splitting
Oh, well taken!
Walcott right now ??
This is exactly what Theo needs. Pressure from the Ox. Pressure from Lucas. Sink or swim.
Amazing ball from Alexis
The movement and passing today is insane! Ozil and Sanchez have been amazing
Glad Iwobi scored, it’s been a while for him
That free-kick by Sanchez goood loorddddd
Ludogorets are back on top… !!!!!
Nice goal there’s Basel. Holding been good today but lesson learned there
TOP OF THE GROUP!!
Please ludogorets we promise ozil will not humiliate you again
And we TOP the group…YESSSSSSSS!!!!!!
When is the draw. We probably get Bayern knowing our luck
Doesn’t matter who we get. We have to turn up in order to get somethin…
Lucas Perez proved me wrong today with a hattrick, what a game. Arsenal on top of the group & im so happy, onto the next stage. I believe we are gonna do well this in the champions league this season. COYG….
