Confirmed Arsenal team to beat West Ham today – No PEA

So Arsenal will play Arsene Wenger’s third-last home game against West Ham United, and I fully expect the Gunners to win all three convincingly – starting with a big scoreline against David Moyes defensive line-up.

Although all the talk from Wenger and Gazidis has been about promoting youth in the future, I still think Wenger will take no chances and go for an attacking line-up. Many of the first team had a breather last week and don’t play again til Thursday, so this is the team I predicted in my Preview…

Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal,
Xhaka, Wilshere, Elneny
Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette

And here is the team that our departing manager has decided on…

He is definitely giving game time to players certain to start on Thursday, so that is why PEA is on the bench and Welbeck and Lacazette lead the line. Ospina is in goal for the same reason…

Ramsey must be fitter than Wilshere but I doubt he will play the whole game, and Iwobi!!!
Where the hell is Ozil? Not on his hols again is he?

        Idiots you’d rather he start Ozil and risk him right? And the hate you’ve got for Iwobi is pure.. Just shut up!! support the team snd stop picking on players!! Wait till next season to see how they perform under another coach.
        You guys are too toxic i swear

        1. Godswill

          I don’t think Iwobi is the one leaking the goals. We’ve scoring but conceding stupidly.

        2. Vanpayslip, Esq - Founder of Iwobi out of Arsenal Trust

          Eddie, glad Iwobi is proving you right 🤣🤣🤣

    So that’s the line up for semi final.. makes sense they play today and get I sync for Thurs..
    My prediction.. Auba off the bench at 70 mins to grab a hat trick once defenders are wilting in this heat !
    I hope everyone can now come together and support Arsenal and Wenger for these last few matches at home.

    Can only assume AW is trying to have more or less the same team playing on Thursday. Otherwise I can’t see, why Aubameyang should be on the bench.

      1. AndersS

        Iwobi and Ospina could be just the 2, that won’t start Thursday (berring injuries). But taht is just my guess.

    1. John Ibrahim

      hes trying to build team coordination and communication….

      the same players playing week in and out, will communicate and coordinate better

      just like Barca where most players have been playing together since 16yo

      1. AndersS

        But if that is the case, it is the first time, he has used that recipe. Interesting it happens now.

        1. John Ibrahim

          not the first time…many managers use it as well

          besides theres nothing to play for in the league

  3. John Wick

    I heard ozil is ill.. come on he’s been ill at least 10 times since January the man must have a very weak immune system 😂 aubameyang benched? Just proves what’s wrong at arsenal! Roll on next season.

    Good to see Wenger still messing things up! Haha. For all those fans that were so sad on Friday, I think today’s team selection is a timely reminder as to why change has been desperately needed for years!

    1. John Ibrahim

      please explain why the team selection is a mess up? making things up?

      Wenger has already explain hes will be field a side that will be playing in the semis

      Team work is build by playing games together…..

      1. ThirdManJW

        Ramsey, and Kos are very injury prone. If Laca gets injured, we have NO ONE to play upfront against Atletico. Monreal has probably been our best player this season, why risk him as well?

        Don’t mind Xhaka, and Mustafi starting, because hopefully Wenger will FINALLY do the right thing and drop them against Atletico.

        1. Max

          How Ramsey is laying today and with Wenger still our manager I am more and more afraid for the Atletico games. Ramsey made 4 errors in 1st 15 min, and he is nowhere to be seen except infront of a goal.
          Wenger IS out! Ramsey to follow…
          and Mustafi, Xaka and a crew

  5. RSH

    Lacazette needs gametime before Thursday so I understand why he starts over Aubameyang. A lot of changes, but we also have some players out. Lets just hope no injuries and a good result.

  6. Footballistrivial

    Mustafi is really good when it comes to last ditch challenges, but his positioning and man marking is reminiscent of a schoolboy.

    1. Ackshay

      Exactly he is a reactive defender like kos was in his early years, he needs someone to manage him on the field. We need a defender who organise the defense, who goes in to tackle who stays back, checking the offside line. Its either kos or mustafi and a commanding defenders next to them.
      Kos and mustafi are kamikaze defenders they go all in, its excellent when they are both having a good match but horrible when one is not in form.

    1. Rkw

      And mustafi and xhaka and elneny and Ramsey and Iwobi … Sell these 6 buy two quality midfield players with these funds … Add new funds to Buy 2 quality defenders and new guy should be able to do something

    1. John0711

      Sue there’s a few where are useless
      Elneny although he’s better than the other 3

      1. Innit

        Welbeck is NOT ususeless.
        Are Welbecks goals useless?
        Is his good work rate useless?
        Is his speed useless?
        If he was useless he wouldn’t be scoring any goals

        Do you want a Top striker behind Lacazette and Aubameyang? Should we fill our bench with world class players?

        1. John0711

          Welbecks goals yea he’s prolific 🙈do you watch games and see his missed chances

          I mean I bet Utd wish they still had him

          He wouldn’t play so many games for any other top 6 side

  7. Ackshay

    No creative midfielder is killing our whole system, we need a young creative players who can come off the bench or starts when doing rotation. We also need a skilled dribbling attacking like sane instead of Iwobi who started as a mazy dribbler and risk taker now a boring sideway passer.

    1. RSH

      hope elneny doesnt miss world cup. Assuming he wont be playing again this season for us at least

  8. John Ibrahim

    Missing Ozil and Mkhi

    at least theres Ramsay a little improvement in terms of creativity compare to last week game vs Newcastle

  9. Muff diver

    Players all week .
    “Will show our thanks . Our performances will give u send off you deserve boss ..”
    This it is it ?
    Second half do better u cow nipples ….
    Extract the milk from the zipple …
    Milk David moyes

    Win this

  10. Kenyanfan

    To be sincere, iwobi, welbeck,lucazete and mustafi, way..xhaka, no complain. nice accurate forward long passes

  11. Ackshay

    We have improved considerablely in set-pieces especially corners this season. This was a beautiful combination goal with mustafi and koscielny making fake runs for monreal.
    If we rediscover our beautiful attacking football back next season and kept this new found danger in set-pieces. We will have a good attacking threat.
    Now can we get this defense sorted.

    1. Babasola

      This Hatred is too much
      he’s not playing well presently but we’ve all see him do way much better

      1. John Ibrahim

        ozil is good and creating chances for both sides because he doesnt defend and pressure opponents players

  12. Rkw

    Happy for laca as it boosts confidence …. But Iwobi off auba on made a massive difference … So why not from the start … Unfathomable
