Confirmed Arsenal team to face Valencia – Ozil starts away from home

Well this is make or break time for Arsenal, and although we don’t have to win tonight, we have to show enough fight to make sure we qualify for the Final.

For me I thought that Emery would do his damnedest to try and stop Valencia scoring, which is why this is the team that we predicted that Emery would choose in a defensive line-up….

Sokratis…Koscielny.. Monreal
Maitland Niles.. Xhaka.. Torreira.. Kolasinac
Aubameyang.. Lacazette

And here is the team that Emery has chosen….

TEAM NEWS — Arsenal

Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal;
Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac;
Lacazette, Aubameyang.

Sooo, the only difference is that Emery has chosen Ozil instead instead of Mhkitaryan, and I hope that he has made the right decision, but otherwise we were extremely accurate.

Let’s just hope that they are good enough to do the job.

Come on you Gunners!!!!



  1. unfortunately this is the best lineup we can put up. Get ready for at least 90 minutes of stress!

  2. Why is it most of yu guys do not see any positivity frm our team when we field the best players we hve

      1. Arsenal this season have played differently in the epl and the Europa. Our away form in Europa has been better compared to the epl and our best has been knocking out Napoli at their own backyard.
        We are qualifying whether lose or draw.

    1. Oh come on Brett… have you watched Arsenal at all recently?? 1 point out of 12 in our last 4 PL games… I think we’re entitled to be a little nervous!! COYG

    2. Because our best team doesn’t give anyone any confidence, hurts but true. The confidence you ‘ve when you go into a battle with AK47 is not same when you find your self in modern warfare, saddled with a revolver.

  3. Best team available
    Xhaka is poor but no one else to replace him
    The bench looks very uninspiring

  4. Emery bombs atomically
    Sokratis, philosophies and hypothesis
    Can’t explain how the gunners be dropping these mockeries

  5. I hope Xhaka wears his scoring boots today and I wish Sokratis can behave like an intelligent CB tonight

  6. If this is our first 11 next season I don’t see us finishing in tip 6 … but in a one off game with a lead in place should still b possible

    1. Aubameyang loves to score against Valencia

      One at home and another at their turf

  7. just support these guys for the next 2 El games. I believe we will come good in this.

    1. Absolutely right, are strikers are some of the best in the world, all they need is support. A creative midfielder and wingers and there is no stopping them.

      1. Laca and Auba got us through this tie. The midfield has conjured up very little. Torreira doing Ozil’s job. So many areas needed for improvement.

  8. Come on even arsenal can’t mess this up. Barcelona are the new arsenal in Cl. they get whipped every season. 0-4 Liverpool, 0-3 Roma, 0-3juventus, 0-4 psg.

  9. If we make Valencia the first team since Bayern Munich to put four past us in a single half of a football match, then yeah Emery has a bigger bottle job on his hands

  10. Thank you Laca and PEA. Let our midfielders and defenders continue fooling themselves.

  11. My problem with this as always is this shadow marking with acre of space we are giving Valencia.

  12. Done and dusted. Auaba and Lacazette are just too hot to handle. Good strikers make a world of difference.

  13. We’ve never conceded 4 in 20 minutes. Well, not since Liverpool tore us a new one five years ago. Should be as good as through.

  14. Aubameyang is on steroid today

    Once Maitland-Niles finally decided to break through, the king of tap-ins showed his blistering speed and finish the great cross

  15. Great to have the legendary Henry back in the team tonight. It is great that he has changed his name to Aubameyang too. Aubas best game in our shirt by a country mile. Bergkamp is now called Laca too!

    1. Hattrick. As you said jon, his best performance in an Arsenal shirt. Very happy he saved it for today. Give us another in Baku Auba!

  16. Bring a decent winger who can cross for Aubameyang next season and watch him tear the Epl apart next season.

  17. I,m happy unai has been vindicated with auba,s operation,he wiuldn,t have made an enough difference in the epl,humble pie people

  18. Arsenal are 5-0 up and neither Wilock or Nketiah get some mins???I’m slightly worried about the development of our youngsters who aren’t Guendouzi. Thank god for Laca and Auba but they’ve completed 90 + mins 4 games straight…BAKU here we come

  19. Absolutely amazing… thank you Auba (& Laca) that really was a joy to watch!
    Who said we can’t play away? Baku, baby.. here we come!!
    AFC ❤

  20. England is rainbow!!
    Bring all the European cups here – it’s been long coming.
    The toughest league in the world has to show it in style.

    Well done everyone, and a special welldone to AubameBoom for his first Arsenal hat trick. It should have been his every game but for his wastefulness. Just give us another for the last EPL match to grab your deserved Golden boot.

  21. Ozil left the field sending silence to the fans and with a tremendous anger Mesut has stalled and his football with him. He was going for a series and now he plays for playing………
    see you in Baku……..
