It is nice to hear that Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal players have travelled to France in confident mood, because we will need all the help that we can get if we are to become the first club in the Champions League to overturn a two goal deficit away from home.
And while it will not be easy to score three goals against Monaco with their brilliant defensive record, the Gunners showed that we can create chances against them despite our poor performance in the first leg, we just need to make sure that we finish our chances this time.
Wenger has a tough decision to make in central midfield after Ramsey played so well against West Ham but I think he will give the nod to Santi Cazorla instead to increase our attacking potential and give us the best possible chance of scoring.
Arsenal have to take risks and that will mean that Coquelin and the defence will need to be strong and alert. Gabriel has recovered and travelled with the squad and for his extra pace if nothing else I think he will start tonight.
If Arsenal are pushing forward as expected we will be at risk from a quick counter attack and so will want our quickest defenders, including Bellerin at right back. Gibbs or Monreal is a tough one but just for his pace and attacking threat I would go for Gibbs.
Wenger will want as strong a front line as possible and assuming that Ozil plays the number 10 role I think it will be Giroud through the middle with Alexis and Welbeck on either side. Theo Walcott could be the perfect impact sub against tired Monaco legs.
I think Arsenal will play a lot better and win the game but I think we might just come up short and exit the competition, possibly on away goals after a 2-0 win.
