Today’s big news is that Torreira returns for Arsenal alongside Ramsey in midfield, and Koscielny proves his fitness for this crunch home tie.
The Gunners come into the match on the back of seven straight wins at the Emirates stadium, and it would be an understatement to say that we need to make sure we get a positive result here today.
With our hopes of a top four finish having taken a painful turn at the weekend, we cannot afford to let ourselves become despondent of making it into the Champions League via the Europa League, as well as remaining in the hunt for the trophy of course.
With a big performance needed, it is refreshing to see such a strong side named in our newly favoured 3-4-3 formation, and I cant help but be excited by the line-up….

It’s quite strange to think that the only player I may have left out would be Mesut Ozil, who many name as our most creative player, but I think this team has more than enough balance to accommodate him, even if he was at his worst.
I would be very shocked to see this game end up 0-0, but more importantly, this team line-up has a win all over it. Whether we will put enough daylight between us to coast us through a tough away leg is up for debate, but I’m hoping for a 3-1 win.
Would you change any names in this line-up? Would Ozil have been a shoo-in for your chosen XI?
