Official Arsenal team to face Sheffield United – Luiz back and no Ozil again

Today Arsenal visit Sheffield United in a quarter-final FA Cup clash and truth be told, it could not have come at a better time.

The Blades are in a bit of a mini-meltdown right now, they have lost their last two games by a score of 3-0 each time and have not scored a single goal in all three games they have played since the resumption of football.

As for Arsenal, it did not start well with two consecutive losses but they bounced back to winning ways against Southampton last Thursday evening and enter this game in a positive mood.

Anyway, this is the Arsenal team to face Sheffield United this afternoon

  1. 3-4-2-1 to counter Sheffield United’s 3-5-2 formation:

    ……………………… Martinez
    ………. Mustafi . Luiz . Kolasinac
    Niles ……. Willock …………. Xhaka ……. Tierney
    ……… Pepe ……………………. Saka
    ……………………… Lacazette

    I believe the no 10s, Ozil and Ceballos, are kept for 4-2-3-1 formation against Norwich at home

      1. I don’t think so, because Kolasinac is taller and has more experience in CB position. But let’s see

    1. The game against Norwich is almost meaningless for us. I see no pint resting players for powerhouse Norwich. Ozil has been frozen out not for football reason. At Willock’s age Ozil was tearing it for Germany and Real. Even Jack the lad had shown super star form when fit.

  2. That is a strong line up which shows how seriously arteta is taking the match. Though there are vuoole of changes in personnel, here and there,I believe that line-up has enough to beat their opponent, if they perform to their best.

  3. Again, shows we have no creativity in the squad. Why is the excuse various players aren’t ready but luis put straight in despite every fan feeling he’s a liability. I don’t know what Arteta is doing. I want him to succeed but he doesn’t convince me in his selections or tactics every week. Another afternoon feeling nervous – how far we have fallen

    1. And yet we have people who constantly write toxic stuff about Ozil. Luiz has actually cost us countless points/games! If Arteta has succumbed to the board’s pressure to freeze Ozil, then he has no chance of succeeding.

  4. Very, very poor line up for arsenal and it’s a lose for arsenal this afternoon thanks .lvan from Uganda

  5. After 10 mins and Arsenal are looking like a 2nd devision team..

    Simple stuff looks too difficult for them. What is going on in training? Do they train?

    1. Actually, I’m bored already.. Arsenals football is about as exciting as tooth ache! πŸ€¨πŸ€¨πŸ‘Ž

      1. What do you guys prefer? A beautiful tikitaka with no end result? We are in the rebuilding phase, so results is only thing that matters

        1. Rebuilding …. at this rate it’s going to take longer than the taj mahal … you can’t build a team of any kind with no central defenders or playmakers on the pitch … it will just be endless scraping … we have makings of a decent attack but it’s all just all over the place right now

  6. Boring football with everyone all over the place.
    But so far, good fortune smiling at Arsenal with one goal up.

  7. The Gunners seemed to be unfamiliar with the 3-4-2-1 formation, but luckily Sheffield player made a mistake inside their box

    1. At the moment totally unfamiliar with any type of football… Rather we unfamiliar with football itself..

  8. Looked much more settled after the goal. AMN solid at the back, Tierney sharp, Willock and Saka hit and miss but they’re starting to connect really well, midfield still allowing a little too much space but offensively looking *slightly* more dangerous. Positive stuff.

  9. Well taken penalty… Pepe’s done alright… I must admit as the half went on, we improved… gonna be a long 45 minutes πŸ˜…

  10. why do we even bother tobwatch this team…Week in week out..Thetly deliver a stinker..once upon a time we watched arsenal as a means of pleasure …Right now..The less said the better

  11. Too funny. Two chances to win at bramall lane & we squander both. But first time round, we never had a chance!

  12. Pleased with the win. That said our play looks decidedly mid table stuff. The table does not lie!

  13. I just love the metamorphosis of the comments as the game progresses here !! its like watching Transformers. With a happy ending. COYG
