  1. Invisible says:

    Introduce tierney at start of 2nd half, and holding too.

    1. Maks says:

      No in Emerys Sevilla-Arsenal team.

    2. mide says:

      Its halfime and me beloved arsenal is waiting to counter against Shefield United (not Man City not Liverpool but Shefield), i canelieve how negative we have become. We have the one of the best strikers in the world and yet not playmaker in Emery’s team to control the midfield and feed Auba.

      Emery is making this team so frustrating to watch right now. I hate his idears already.

      EMERY FU******G OUT

      1. Kay says:

        Agree with you. The guy is a joke. He’s not not getting Arsenal anymore. He didn’t set up his team to win from the onset. He’s not a top team manager

  2. Declan says:

    What the @cyual fffff. Why no Tierney ? Why no Holding?

    1. gotanidea says:

      I guess because they are meant for cup matches. The coaches can’t suddenly replace the EPL players with the cup ones, unless the EPL players produced bad forms in consecutive matches or some of them get injured

      They made a sensible decision by introducing the recently returned players gradually into the team. I just hope the inclusion of Xhaka and Sokratis wouldn’t backfire on them

      1. HA559 says:

        Manager is deluded. We will be on the back foot in this game with that lineup. Lacazette and Tierney should be in this team. Sheffield might even end with more possession than us. What has Pepe done to start games again and again? I’d rather have Ozil in than him in the team

      2. Ogbonna Paul Onyeka says:

        He did not want to rush them into the first team. He will introduce them into the EPL first team gradually

      3. Sylva Olabanji says:

        Once again, you have made a valid point on the lineups.
        I also wished Cebalos & Rob holding had started in place of Xaka and Socratis. But Socratis is very physical and always take no prisoners which is a plus to his game. David Luiz is also improving. I hope they get result at least a point.

    2. Francis says:

      They might start for our next home game

  3. gotanidea says:

    Emery has correctly chosen 4-2-3-1 again, because it’s the most familiar formation for the Gunners

    I just wished Emery replaced Sokratis and Xhaka with Holding and Ceballos, but the coaches surely know better

    1. Invisible says:

      Tierney and holding bench warmer, bellerin????? Warming the sofa?????

      1. gotanidea says:

        Please see my thought on my post before this one

    2. Truth says:

      If Emery knows best we are in trouble because we are second best against a newly promoted team with an inferior squad.

  4. Declan says:

    Where is the creatives coming from. Kolasinac cannot crissca ball and mainly passes back.
    Where’s Ozïl?

    1. gotanidea says:

      Perhaps he is packing to go to Turkey?

  5. rux says:

    absolutely yes!!!! the strongest lineup

  6. Le Coq Monster says:

    Half the bench should be starting !…………so strong bench.

    Aubameyang shortlisted for Ballon d’Or !……………….and Xhaka as well !……………see below !

    1. Declan says:

      Ha ha ha ha 🤣🤣🤣🤣excellent Coq.

      1. Sue says:

        🤣🤣🤣 love it, Le Coq

  7. Sue says:

    All that BS Unai came out with, regarding Mesut and he’s not even in the squad…..

    1. Simon says:

      that is just for press,he doesn’t like ozil ,he prefers wrestlers and penalty givers….emery is a joke

      1. Sue says:

        It really is a joke, Simon

    2. Declan says:

      Emery doesn’t know what he’s doing. Tierney is fit. Bellerin is fit, Holding is fit. Ozïl is fit.

      1. Innit says:

        We play Europa League in 3 days

        1. Declan says:

          Ha ha ha ha 🤣🤣🤣🤣excellent Coq.

        2. Declan says:

          Innit, tonight’s game is far more important.

      2. Sue says:

        Just as long as Captain Marvel starts hey, Declan?! Jeez I’m bloody annoyed already

        1. Declan says:

          Yeah me too Sue, I’m astounded at the team he’s picked.
          I see Luke Freeman is on the bench for them, just hope he doesn’t score !

    3. Lenohappy says:

      Sue maybe Ozil still needs some rest, he may be tired from that long interview😆😆😆

      1. Sue says:

        Very funny, Lenohappy!!

    4. Pat says:

      Sue am trying not to get started before the game because I will just be upset no matter what. It’s alright at the end of the day. He gets his pay and Emery gets to leave him out. Win win for everyone!!!!

      1. Sue says:

        It’s unbelievable, Pat. An absolute joke…. he is doing my bloody head in 🤬🤬🤬

    5. ThirdManJW says:

      To all those unhappy with no Ozil. Be honest though. Do you really think Ozil is going to turn up on a cold Monday evening in Sheffield?

      1. Dan kit says:

        Putting Ozil aside that starting lineup is a disgrace ,5 of that bench should be starting,if they are Fit enough for the bench they are fit enough to start .the blokes a clown

        1. Phoneix2212 says:

          Emery out based on tonight’s selection alone

          Gross incompetence!!!!!

          This is getting silly now

      2. Viju Jacob says:

        TMJW, stop being lame. Don’t let yourself down.

    6. Truth says:

      Emery is a joke.

      1. Skills1000 says:

        You are right. He does not know what he is doing?

  8. Maks says:

    I hope we win this, but Emery is again pushing Sokratis, Xhaka and Kolasinac, and without enough creativity. Going again to score one goal! Crazy…
    I hope I am wrong and guys infront will link up well and fast!

  9. Simon says:

    Emery is so stubborn..jeez!!. too predictable

  10. Adega Olatunji says:

    this guy called emer is decieving himself with the treatment of ozil and his selection. what point is he trying to prove? are will now saying willock is better than ceballos? this guy should be a coach of stoke city no disrespect though

    1. Maks says:

      He never played with no. 10,
      and he is so stuck with Sevilla in mind that it looks he is
      not a best coach for Arsenal and players we have.

    2. ToluCOYG says:

      Ozil isn’t training enough to be selected, simple. What if Ceballos gets injured or he returns permanently to R.Madrid? These kinda games is a perfect learning curve for Willock to improve and gain some experience, dude’s curve is on rise already. Read Saka is pumping himself already off pitch, working hard to replace Lacazette, that’s the way to go. We need players that will work for the badge, play beautifull and give us results on matchdays

      1. Ayo says:

        Then why loan him if he is scared of him getting injured or going back to Madrid. That your statement only explains Emery as a coward coach with negative thinking, selection and tactics.

      2. Viju Jacob says:

        You watched the training sessions?

      3. Pat says:

        Tolucoyg, I hope you are very happy with the selection? And am sure you love the result too.

  11. ThirdManJW says:

    It’s great to see Willock starting again, and Saka keeping his place, but surely Holding, and Tierney are fit enough?

    I can understand Emery’s caution, given the amount of injuries he’s had to deal with during his time at Arsenal, but Holding, and Tierney looked fit in their previous appearances.

    At least it’s a strong bench.

    1. Mohsan says:

      Thank you Mr UE for explains ur dumb selection …once again!

  12. Thinesh says:

    A Lineup with limited creativity. Hope our 3 frontline will score tonight (*Cough)

  13. Clueless Emery says:

    There is no creative player in the line up.

    What exactly is Ozil’s offence. Did he took Unai Emery’s wife?

    Just asking because, if its based poor performance as Emery is trying to make us believe, there are lots of poor players that are playing regularly for us.

    1. Not a coach says:

      Don’t you get it? They’ve explained already that Ozil’s not selected because he doesn’t work hard enough during the training. So, if there are some names that we couldn’t understand why Emery keeps playing them, we can assume that they must be working the hardest during the training.

  14. Zino says:

    You guys complain when Ozil puts in a awful shift then complain when the manager doesn’t include him. Alot of you think you know better than Emery but you’re sitting behind a screen at home or at work knowing doodle doo about anything.

    can’t please everyone.

    1. Skills1000 says:

      We know more than the manager. Emery deserves a sack. He is gradually turning us to a mid table team.

  15. Le Coq Monster says:

    No Ozil, no Bellerin, no Holding starting, no Tierney starting, no Ceballos starting, no Laca starting…………….I have had to adjust my prediction, this will be a lot harder than I thought previously and too tight to call, so I think we may just edge it 6-0.

  16. Loki says:

    Emery indeed is bringing a revolution in Arsenal…sadly a negative revolution.
    From playing excellent football to boring football….from playing good players based on their talent and performance to taking out vendetta on players.

  17. Adega Olatunji says:

    am so sure after Emery sends ozil away with this crazy treatment the next to go is Torriera, follow by Lacazette until we are left with Xhaka, sokratis, goudenzi and some other stuff players who suppose to be playing rugby. mark my words

    1. kenyanfan says:

      I see your point too well. It’s very clear that Emery likes robots in the field. Players who play with skill are a no to him. It’s clear he dislikes Ozil, Torreira, Lucazette and Ceballos isn’t safe

  18. Abel says:

    Everybody 100% fit and this our confused manager continues to pick the same team. Well, the knives would surely be out if his team fails to get the 3 points here.
    So much for competition for places.

  19. kenyanfan says:

    Here we go once more. Players ever played out of position no matter what.
    Willock is Box to Box and not no10.
    Xhaka is Xabi type player(Deep Lying Playmaker), but the thing is Xhaka is deployed as a DM.
    Guendouzi and Torriera are the only True DMs but today Guendouzi is deployed as a CM.
    And Torriera is the Only Ball winning Midifielder in the team and when he plays, he is played at no.10. we are f*cked up guys. We are messed up. This guy isn’t right for the job. Just wait and see Torreira coming off the bench to play out of position at No.10 and replace Willock(also playing out of position) who will be playing well and Xhaka who will be playing badly left on the field. Saka too will be replaced by Ceballos (out of position) who Bewitched Emery. I give up. No matter how much I love arsenal,no matter how much I would like to be positive and support my team happily, Emery is making life difficult for me

    1. Invisible says:

      Emery is a man with a plan. He is on a mission.
      Remember when he first came he said “gonna build the team around ramsey”, bye ramsey. ” I prefer 4-3 or 5-4 rather than 1-0″, plays with 3 DMs…..plenty goals scored left and right??????? ” Ozil is important, he is one of my five captains”, doesnt even get to warm the bench…..(emery to ozil) warm the sofa for me…blah blah blah….on a mission to destroy creative players and beautiful football.

  20. Trudeau says:

    Hugely disappointed that there is no Tierney. Mildly gutted there is no Holding. The rest I can live with.

  21. Al Mubaraq says:

    Am so glad Saka kept his place in the starting lineup…feeling for AMN tho

  22. Rkw says:

    Wow and there I was thinking that lpool vs man was devoid of creativity

  23. Innit says:

    3 things I’m not happy with
    1. Defence (Sokratis)
    2. Xhaka starting
    3. No Ceballos

    Happy with Wilock and Guendouzi starting though

    I guess Ceballos, Tierney, Holding, Bellerin, Torreira will play against Vitoria SC

    But not happy with the team selection. If we win I’ll say I was wrong but doesn’t look good

    Hope we win anyway


    1. kenyanfan says:

      Even if we win the fact still remains that the lineup is clearly not okay.
      Why lie. All is not well at Arsenal especially with our manager

  24. Jo-Gunz says:

    Glad to see King Laca back.
    We are winning!

  25. Grandad says:

    Our strength is on our bench.I expect an aerial bombardment from Sheffield who apart from Burnley are probably the most physical team in the League.

  26. Mogunna says:

    Oups he did again, i guess Laca is not fit. He now goes for Chambers instead of Niles, suppose Bellerin not ready as Holding nor Tierny to be in main team. They will play Europa in team B! Then same tonight 11 will play in EPL on week end.

    As usual, we are not happy with this 11, not feeling excited for a great game and son but scared as we will all game long, hoping…

    1. Viju Jacob says:

      Emery will make our team play
      In our way
      In our capacity
      In our mentality
      In our pressing
      In our system….

  27. Mogunna says:

    From Kolas top4 belief commenté, it was clear Emery will have him on!

    1. Invisible says:

      Emery loves wrestlers and jokers

  28. fabnit says:

    I can’t wait to see us lose or draw this match so that I can come to this site and read nasty comments. I don’t want us to lose/draw though

    1. Cliff says:

      Those are not nasty comments you read.We have scrapped through matches we would have won comfortably. The fanbase is honestly concerned with what is happening at our club and with all our players back from injury & well rested after the international break, no sane manager will field such a team.
      Emery is nuts.

  29. Roachie says:

    Just seen Emery pre match interview and I still have no idea what he’s on about

  30. Joel says:

    There is nothing else to say other than Emery is completely clueless and out of his depth.He has run out of excuses.Holding and Tierney are definitely fit…yet inferior players in Kolasinac and Sokratis keep their places in the starting 11.
    The bench is ridiculously strong the team full of players who dont merit a starting place.We are playing Sheffield United for goodness sake!!The correct team and tactical approach should run all over the opposition

  31. GunnerJack says:

    The three stooges start! Sokratis, Kolasinac and Xhaka. Is Emery being paid to screw us up?

  32. uzkido says:

    Hellmery can’t keep doing same thing over and expect a different result.No ozil again?

  33. John0711 says:

    Is ANYONE enjoying this 💩

    1. Truth says:

      No. We are being outplayed.

  34. Sean Williams says:

    Weird team selection and dangerous way of playing out from the back.

  35. Declan says:

    So far….. so pathetic.

  36. Truth says:

    An other dumb foulf by X

  37. Reddb10 says:

    Xhaka is a joke and the fact he wears the armband is a disgrace.

  38. Truth says:

    We can’t string 4 passes together, our midfield is not even in the game.

  39. s says:

    you know you’re crap when a team with only one Premier League regular for a previous club is in the starting XI and that team is outplaying you

  40. Roshan Gill says:

    Does anyone have a live stream?

    1. Dan kit says:

      He’s goal .com

  41. Declan says:

    And now we are behind, fùcking pathetic as I said earlier.

    1. Truth says:

      I wonder what the excuse will be? Championship teams are more motivated once promoted?

    2. Pat says:

      Am not surprised, we were going in circles.

    3. Mr Reality says:

      Emery, you are liable. You gat no guts to feature the young guns. WOuldn’t like to mention names.

  42. Truth says:

    Sadly that goal was not against the run of play.

  43. Pat says:

    Goal, ummmmmm

  44. John0711 says:

    That came as a surprise totally against the run of play lol

  45. avenger says:

    I saw it coming Arsenal is playing to nothing now we are loosing and now what?

  46. Truth says:

    Dean… That was a bs yellow against Saka.

  47. Cliff says:

    There are so many things I don’t know but one thing I am sure of is that I can be a better manager than Emery.

  48. Eddie Hoyte says:

    Lol..Being outplayed by a lower team.
    midfield totally rubbish, our attackers trying to create chances themselves.
    I can’t wait for people to find nothing wrong with this performance citing how they played Liverpool😂😂
    Just wait for it, you’ll be told even Liverpool struggled against them that’s why we’re playing so poorly😂

    1. Mohsan says:

      Completely agree…UE fans will come out with some sort of bullsh*t excuse for this as well.

  49. SadGunner says:

    As long as Emery is in charge we have to see this ballet.

  50. Sue says:

    FFS.. I knew we wouldn’t get lucky with a howler from their gk!
    Been so crap so far.. Pepe should have scored… Guendouzi is doing alright & that’s about it… 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩

  51. soccerboy says:

    arsenal one goal down!

  52. Gunnertz says:

    Poor arsenal, we’re now struggling even against championship level team, yet some wretches insisting to support this Rubish

    1. soccerboy says:

      how long is this going to continue?

      1. Gunnertz says:

        Till Emery get fired

  53. Dan kit says:

    Not one shot on target.

    1. Declan says:

      Freddie got booked as well.

    2. Cliff says:

      @Dan Kit as long as we play Pepe & Saka in our starting 11 do not expect anything in our attack.
      Saka is promising but he not yet at premier league level.He needs cameo appearances to gain experience.
      Pepe has done nothing to warrant a starting 11.
      With Bellerin & Lacz in that team for Pepe &Saka we would be talking a different story.
      I honestly don’t know the pipe Emery smokes at the Emirates.

    3. Declan says:

      No not one shot on target, two.

  54. soccerboy says:

    I’m so mad. Stupid team selection

  55. Sue says:

    Mike Dean makes me sick

    1. Gunnertz says:

      There’s nothing wrong with Mike Dean sue, don’t find place to hide

    2. Eddie Hoyte says:

      Lol, baby what has Mike Dean done?
      Is he responsible for the team selection?
      Saka deserved that yellow.
      Other than that, what has Mike Dean done to you tonight?😂😂
      We’re getting outplayedz it has nothing to do with Dean😛

      1. Sue says:

        Just being there is enough, Eddie.

  56. soccerboy says:

    This coach needs to be fired as soon as possible. please don’t it get worst like United or spurs.

  57. Sean Williams says:

    Once again Xhaka slows us down. Emery must be having an affair with him. It must be love. We could have had… Guendouzi, Ceballos, and Torreira. Once again Emery shows he knows shite about his own squad. He’s not a manager to challenge for the EPL.

    1. Truth says:

      Sean Emery is not a manager to get us into the top 4.

  58. Pat says:

    Very nice shot from Granit Xhaka

    1. Truth says:

      Sad when we have to be happy with one good shot.

  59. gotanidea says:

    Pepe has improved a lot defensively, but his finishing and corner-taking are still atrocious

    Arsenal’s corner defense was always horrible in Wenger’s era and it has returned in this season

    1. Viju Jacob says:

      Come on, that’s lame to be even talking about Wenger in a game where this team is so pathetic. Grow up.

  60. I know nothing other than the mine up and score but why oh why against a scrapping ex championship team would we not play Toerriera?
    Xhaka no, both luiz and sokratis together no, sake probably no, no cebalos is a shocker.
    I get a massive hint that Emery wanted to keep in it and then win from the bench bit why not the other way round?
    Guy was unconvincing at PSG and continues this in my eyes.
    Good yo see Freddie getting passionate.

  61. Bur says:

    Why or what is Willock doing? No urgency the forwards are making runs but the midfield are passing backward. Pure shit. Put a bit of action into the game ffs

    1. Invisible says:

      Willock is playing ‘who is invisible’. That’s me.😁😁😁😁

  62. mayert says:

    Atrocious football I’ve never seen my entire life.

    Midfield is simply bogus.

    Our playing is slow, lethargic, timid. I wonder why they even try to play from the back.

  63. John0711 says:

    Xhaka even played him onside for their goal ffs

    1. Modx says:

      Same problem,no penetration at all. I really hate this backward passing and sideways. It is really awfull. We will struggle in alot of games if we play like this

  64. Sue says:

    Not a good ebening 🤬

    1. Pat says:

      Sue we are not interesting to watch, I don’t understand us anymore. I really wanted to enjoy this game today without bias but it’s just impossible playing like this and conceding. They look hungrier than us.

      1. Sue says:

        We’ve waited over 2 weeks for this, Pat… and it’s been awful… they know we’re rattled and that is when we make mistakes

  65. Bur says:

    Why oh why do they have that spitting Scouse twit on tv? My goodness he talks pure dung!!!

    1. Sue says:

      He does my head right in!

  66. Mohsan says:

    Funny thing is …one of the UE fan here was saying make way city for us, we will challenge liverpool for title. How far have we fell 😔☹️…where fans are supporting this terrible n boring football.

  67. Rkw says:

    No surprise my side … sh@@ manager sh@@ captain …

  68. uzkido says:

    Emery defenders where are thou.come and carry your property

  69. Palmer17 says:

    My god bring tierney and laca on ffs

  70. uzkido says:

    we can still get something out of this match.Laca and ceballos can bail us

  71. ACE says:

    Im amazed that Edu and Raul, considering there respected football pedigrees can watch
    this FREAKING GARBAGE on the pitch and still support this muppet of a manager.

    Arsenal has truly become unwatchable, something as a long time supporter I thought I’d
    never witness.

    Much like Wegner’s final days, wake me up Arsenal hire a REAL EFFING manager.

  72. Declan says:

    Seriously, Leno is a total liability.

  73. Bur says:

    This is fn shite for God sake make an effort. What is going onnnnnnnnnn?

    1. Invisible says:

      Turd n turn nothing else.

    2. Invisible says:

      Turd n turd nothing else.

  74. Phoneix2212 says:

    Pepe walking and wandering again!!!!

  75. Palmer17 says:

    No urgency or anything absolutely pathetic

  76. Pat says:

    I think for everyone who hates Ozil, this game is an evidence that Emery is shooting us in the foot by ousting him. This game is crying for someone who can make that one pass. He didn’t even make the bench. What a shame.

    1. John0711 says:

      Totally agree pat

  77. Wolf says:

    UE needs to go. This playing out from the bk shite is getting stale. What Enrique up to these days?

    I do like Pepe though despite his misses which can be worked on. Sorry its him before Ozil.

  78. Declan says:

    We are embarrassing and being taught a football lesson.
    And next week we play our closest rivals in the table….. Palace !!

  79. avenger says:

    Lack of confidence and no ideas we are going no-where we need a miracle player

  80. But I’m not sure why were surprised this is the on form team this year from all the promoted aides and they’ve pushed some of the top teams hard. They also have the joint least goals conceded and are at home.
    What is annoying though is our performance and lack of ability to impact the game.

  81. Fico says:

    For how long will this go on. Emery is a dead coach

  82. Roshan Gill says:

    Yea get Xhaka off. Finally UE does something right

  83. Palmer17 says:

    Crying out for proper fullbacks and Pepe not to take corners or get short corners F me like. Come on

  84. Invisible says:

    Martinelli gonna score

    1. avenger says:

      coukd be Martinelli our miracle man?

      1. Palmer17 says:

        We’ve created absolutely nothing

  85. Rkw says:

    Clueless manager produces clueless football

    1. Hez says:

      This stupid coach kills my week

  86. Eddie Hoyte says:

    I bet you we’ll be told we lost
    or dropped points because Sheffield Utd really gave other top teams tough this season😂😂
    Wait till you read one lamw dead excuse for our performance and team selection

  87. Bur says:

    Emery has to go . Out ta foooook

  88. Xhaka16 says:

    As a fan I know that Sheffield Utd like many other teams in the premier league is tough.That’s why I believe we must change our team or else we are going to suffer this embarrassment for so long.What makes me hurt is that we have players who if properly assembled can blow this teams away.
    Those who berate us when we question Emery just see your life.
