Official Arsenal team and EPL preview of Man United away

Arsenal fans will be hoping that Arsene Wenger and the players can carry on from where we left off in the last two games against Manchester United, rather than the general trend against our old rivals in the last decade. Because apart from our win at OLd Trafford last season on the way to the FA cup trophy and our 3-0 demolition of them at the Emirates earlier in the season, it has not been much fun playing them in recent years.

But the Gunners are favourites to win this big match for a reason and even though United have the Spanish keeper David De Gea back in the starting XI, they have a massive injury list including their top two strikers Rooney and Martial and their best defender Chris Smalling.

Arsene Wenger has a few injury problems of his own to cope with but our situation is much better which you can see from the respective teams. Gabriel is fit again and replaces Mertesacker, while Giroud is dropped to the bench with Welbeck coming in and Walcott starts on the right.

Cech
Bellerin, Gabriel, Koscielny, Monreal
Coquelin, Ramsey
Walcott, Ozil, Sanchez
Welbeck

Subs: Ospina, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Elneny, Campbell, Iwobi, Giroud.

The Arsenal bench looks pretty strong as well but hopefully Wenger will not need it and the players that start can inflict more misery on this second rate United team and their under pressure boss Louis van Gaal.

    elneny for ramsay now

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      Little facts before the match ends no matter the results…

      Sanchez is not worldclass
      Ozil is below average
      Arsene Wenger is the worst coach in the world ryt naw
      Gabriel gabriel gabriel , well thats what u get …..
      Walcott – the purposeless flash

      Giroud/Cech/Coquelin/Monreal is what holds Arsenal

  2. Demwan Jones says:

    Theo walcott has spent ten years at arsenal, the only difference is that he now has a beard and he’s married

    1. jp says:

      I think Walcott is now done at Arsenal

      1. Juhislihis McLovin says:

        He and OX can be both sold to City who will most definitely buy them to fill in the home-grown quota.

  3. ozgunner says:

    see?

  4. Demwan Jones says:

    3-1. Now wenger can now realise how crap this team is. Useless bunch of players

  5. nygooner says:

    jesus christ

  6. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    Game over. Goodbye title.

    Goodbye Özil, thank you for sticking this long with this incompetent manager and team.

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      Ozil is uselsss u fool , stop justifying is below average performances wid he got assists , u clown .. Damn u think ozil is the best we can do for a No. 10 ???? Get real Ozil, Sanchez are not worth more than welbeck or walcott

  7. Sam, need a striker says:

    Walcott out …
    Ramsey out …
    Giroud out …
    Mert out …
    Flamini out …
    Ox out …
    Even Campbell out ..
    Wenger out …
    Wenger has to be out first …
    These are the dead wood …
    All out of the Club …

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      why Giroud out ??? When walcott is still here
      Why Mert out??? Whn Gabriel is still here
      why ramsey out ??? When ozil is still here

      1. Colin says:

        Why Campbell, the poor lad has to sit and watch his spot being taken by those who just turn up rather than play.

  8. Gigi2 says:

    Arsenal board should really take a look and fix.
    I myself don’t even see games anymore. It just hurts too much. Some may say I’m not a true fan or whatever. …I know what I feel for this team so well that it hurts me seeing thatbtheres Def something wrong and every year neither the coach or board seem to smell the coffee

    Really hurts

  9. lol2304 says:

    CONGRATULATIONS TO LEICESTER!!!!! You just got confirmation you are the epl champions 2015-2016!!!

    Np regrets as an Arsenal fan!!! they are the ones that deserve the title the most!! SINCERELY!!!

  10. Grazza says:

    Ramsey does my head in head in sometimes
    ball watching all day

  11. TioMoses says:

    Arsenal are so fragile mentally. It’s so frustrating as a supporter to watch us constantly wet the bed every time we have a chance to make a statement or take advantage when someone else drops points.

  12. vinie2000 says:

    DISGRACE..TAKE BALL WATCHING RAMSEY OUT AND BRING EL NENEY YOU TACTICALLY LOST COACH..WORSE UTD TEAM..GO TO THE BYELINE AND SHOUT..SHOW SOME PASSION ..IM GUTTED

  13. TioMoses says:

    Good boy Ozil, that slim hope of getting something is still alive!

  14. rkw says:

    Ozil … Quality counts …

  15. Demwan Jones says:

    3-2 now.

  16. luvdaguns says:

    ozil you beaut…

  17. GoonAR says:

    OZZILLLLL

  18. ReiGN says:

    We’re not fast, aggressive and clinical. That’s our problem with our attack. I don’t blame our defense. Our attack is just sh*t.

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      I hope u remember to include ozil in the shit attack , cos defensiveless he is useless so he must be prolific in attack. which he is not.. What a wasted 42mil by a wasteful coach

      1. admin says:

        He has created over 100 chances this season. More than anyone else ever in the premiership and you want to get rid of him coz he doesn’t score goals????
        That’s really sensible…..

  19. nygooner says:

    3-2 good god wat is happening? too much for a sunday morning (Im in new york)

    1. luvdaguns says:

      early morning here in san francisco

  20. vinie2000 says:

    OMG..TOOK LECOQ OUT AND LEFT RAMSEY..YOU ARE KIDDING ME? COME ON

  21. Ras says:

    no hunger, build up too slow, defence gone missing, midfield missing, being beaten by a reserve side. Aresnel got no bottle. I can’t take no more even at 3 2

  22. jackieboy says:

    Never gonna win the league with a profit seeking owner and a penny pinching manager. I hope something bad happens to both of them. Thumb me down all you want, I don’t care, I’m sick of seeing the same crap year in and year out.

  23. galaxygooner says:

    United simply ripped Southampton’s playbook and overloaded the midfield against the poor Ramsey . Wenger should have addressed that

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      Someone who gets it.. Wenger is not a good 21st century coach

  24. ozgunner says:

    wenger you dolt coq out???

    1. galaxygooner says:

      Ramsey . What an a….s…..s

  25. rkw says:

    He tool coq off and left Ramsey on …. Why why.

  26. Sam, need a striker says:

    Bravo Ramsey … take the red card

  27. luvdaguns says:

    3″ off the clock….

  28. WiserthanWenger says:

    Why Monreal gave up running for the ball & let the MU player have it ! I noticed it a number of times , this is like Arteta kind of play ! The lost ball led to the 3rd goal ! Unacceptable !!

  29. luvdaguns says:

    spurs tie

  30. nygooner says:

    elneny on 2 seconds and a yellow aleady… nice

  31. nygooner says:

    LMAO LVG

  32. luvdaguns says:

    louis trying to get a late bid for an oscar

  33. galaxygooner says:

    Why is alexis the person doing the midfield job.where is Ramsey?

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      Because if not the midfield job , alexis would hve done absolutely nothing.. What a waste of the wing . Tooo one dimensional.. Not worldclass ..

  34. rkw says:

    The fact that Ramsey is still I’m just beggars belief … Salvation if he scores twice

  35. Juhislihis McLovin says:

    Even Van Legohead is showing more passion than Wenger.

    By the way, Spurs are 3 points clear us. Leicester 5.

  36. vinie2000 says:

    spuds winning..we are……….. big ……really i blame the coach.

  37. ras911 says:

    LOOL Van gaak hahaah! Qualityy

  38. Demwan Jones says:

    Spuds now winning, thats the mark of champions. looks like there won’t be st. Totteringham this year

  39. luvdaguns says:

    spuds up, very very bad day indeed

  40. vinie2000 says:

    walcott should be ashamed of getting 140k week and teen like ashford scores 2 goals and stamina for the game..more dynamic since el neny is on but RAMSEY …..

  41. mistikedge says:

    Goung back to our 4th place trophy.. spurs 2-1

  42. GoonAR says:

    2-3 against the Man U “B” team? I’m embarrassed.

  43. galaxygooner says:

    El nieny would make a better CM than Ramsey

  44. BUR says:

    Why is Ramsey still on??

  45. rkw says:

    When corporates take over …. Football dies

  46. vinie2000 says:

    Herrra goal shows Ramsey wall watching and lacking of total defensive awarness..el neney looks good..LeCoq should have stayed and push forward.

    1. don99 says:

      Ramsey will never be subbed unless injured, lucky boy

  47. BUR says:

    Give us something to shout about.

  48. SupremeJudge says:

    Can’t u get it ??? Wenger is not goooooooooddddddddddddddddddddddddddd

  49. nygooner says:

    god ramsey u r f’in such a bum

  50. nygooner says:

    iwobi show some damn strength wat the fk

  51. JAmerican says:

    Alexis why didn’t you shoot from inside the box instead of forcing it on Ramsey?

    1. luvdaguns says:

      lost his magic

      1. SupremeJudge says:

        never had magic , just a trick which everyone has found out naw

  52. vinie2000 says:

    WE NEED A NEW COACH WHO INJECT THIS TEAM A WINNING MENTALITY..I HAD ENOUGH..BOTTLERS..COACH LACK OF AMBITION..SPUDS WILL GET IT..WHERE ARE THE AW FOREVER?

  53. luvdaguns says:

    gabriel had a huge impact on this match, usually 2 goals win this match…

  54. mistikedge says:

    There is no way we are winning this league with TOTTENHAM AND LEICESTER playing with more hunger and desire than us.. I am embarrased

  55. rkw says:

    Well .. At least the book on wenger as a 4th place failure can be closed … He is that and until he leaves arsenal will never win top trophies … Only the sad people on this site fail to realize this … Even a draws is irrelevant now

  56. jackieboy says:

    Premier league, champions league, forget it. We’re owned by people who don’t care about arsenal don’t like arsenal, and don’t give a monkeys about the people who do. Money is what drives them, and as long as they get top four, get champions league football then they have fulfilled their yearly business remit. Face it, we’re just a business now, not a football club.

  57. Demwan Jones says:

    Ozil will probably leave this summer

  58. vinie2000 says:

    Ozil..only one who showed some guts..WORSE UTD TEAM EVER..SHAME.

    1. galaxygooner says:

      He and alexia are winners .some of the rest are just picking the wages

  59. WiserthanWenger says:

    How to win the league with this bunch of weaklings !

  60. vinie2000 says:

    it is not who owns the team IT IS THE COACH WHO DID NOT BUY WHAT WE NEED AND THIS IS LACK OF AMBITION..OUT

  61. gunnerman8701 says:

    A disgrace of a team. We keep making excuses of how we had budget constraints. Leicester is about to win it with less than the money we got from Van Persie

  62. luvdaguns says:

    the day we lost the prem… OG touch the ball in 30″.

  63. Demwan Jones says:

    The usual we were naive quotes and jaded

  64. mistikedge says:

    Giroud not worried about his goal drought???? I really question the desire in these boys..

  65. TioMoses says:

    Mental weakness, tactics wrong, unimaginative for most parts with possession.

    So frustrating.

  66. galaxygooner says:

    We lost the league in January when the useless manager did not spend to address the problems in the team

  67. gunnerman8701 says:

    I can now say try again next season. ARSENAL FC WILL NOT WIN THE LEAGUE THIS SEASON!

  68. nygooner says:

    still cant believe we gifted this teenager 2 goals. need to stay off neutral forums for at least a week. will want to kill everyone

    1. SupremeJudge says:

      You wana call his 2 goals gift as well as Messi’s .. Well den we either Santa Arsenal or Wack Arsenal.. Definitely one of dem and either of the two means we have to sack/sell a few players and definitely get a new coach..

    2. galaxygooner says:

      Problem was the midfield . 90% Ramsey , 100% wenger.
      Sniederlin , Herrera, mata and Carrick were the to capitalise on our mistake

      1. SupremeJudge says:

        ozil is coquelin wer part of de midfield , u goat

  69. JAmerican says:

    Guess what? Spurs are now 3 points clear in 2nd.

  70. rkw says:

    That’s it wake me up when wenger’s gone … No more from krish n’chips and clever Trevor and the gooner something guy and all those whose basic knowledge of football is so limited it makes me sad that they call themselves arsenal supporters …

  71. ozgunner says:

    we drew with Hull seconds and now lost to a manure thirds???? WTF wenger, please leave, its official, you have lost it

    1. galaxygooner says:

      Remove , Ozil,Sanchez, Kolcieny and monreal. The rest of our squad would not be able to gain promotion out of the championship

  72. JAmerican says:

    Every time Gabriel comes in for Per he has shocking moments. Jesus Walcott is crap in the middle and crap on the wings. Get rid of him and his wages this summer, it’s been 10 years of chances in conjunction with our title drought. It will take a huge convincing to keep our top players this summer…

  73. gunnerman8701 says:

    Can’t imagine seeing Spirs lift the trophy. I can say though that they will not lose to us at WHL.

  74. gmv8 says:

    Does anybody know what went on there? We looked like the team selection against Monaco at the Emirates. Looks like we couldn’t be bothered – now we’re behind the spuds and out of the EPL reckoning. That should’ve been an easy win. Are we going to wake ourselves up for the spuds now, or are we going to go in looking just as dozy, passing the ball backwards, and giving away the ball and a goal every time they attack.

  75. WiserthanWenger says:

    Sanchez doesn’t seem to be interested in the game ! Most of the time he ‘s just walking around !
