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. Quantic Dream says:

    Willock? Sigh.

  2. gotanidea says:

    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. Roshan says:

      I would say Tierney and Kola are switched in your line up

      1. Kedar says:

        Me too…
        Tierney will play as CB

      2. gotanidea says:

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

        1. sekman says:

          you’re always wrong

    2. ahmad73 says:

      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.

      1. gotanidea says:

        Yeah, it could also because of Ozil being transfer-listed

  3. Adeleke says:

    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.

  4. Francis says:

    Ozil is probably not fit enough..😄

  5. Goonerforever says:

    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

  6. Sue says:

    Luiz 🙈🙈🙈

    1. ahmad73 says:

      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.

      1. Sue says:

        It’s ridiculous…

  7. Oseere ivan says:

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

  8. Roachie says:

    No Guenduozi, Wander what that means……….?

  9. GunneRay says:

    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. GunneRay says:

      Actually, I’m bored already.. Arsenals football is about as exciting as tooth ache! 🤨🤨👎

      1. Sue says:

        I agree and listening to Mcmanaman … it’s dire 😞

      2. Adajim says:

        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. RW1 says:

          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

  10. Gily says:

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

  11. gotanidea says:

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

    1. Kedar says:

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

  12. Kedar says:

    Willock is pathetic…
    He can’t even give one through ball

    1. gotanidea says:

      He made a great through ball to Tierney, but Pepe couldn’t shoot on target

  13. Quantic Dream says:

    We are on fire!!!

    1. Kedar says:

      Come on…
      There was just 1 good attack..

      1. Quantic Dream says:

        😂😂 okay but for a moment it was end to end stuff!

  14. Sean M says:

    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.

  15. Sue says:

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

  16. Sue says:

    Had to turn over at half time with RVP in the studio 🤣

  17. Roachie says:

    Best I’ve seen Pepe play

    1. Sue says:

      👍 more of the same! 🙏

  18. gotanidea says:

    Rob Holding is balding fast

    1. Sue says:

      He’d better have a word with Rooney 😉

      1. gotanidea says:


  19. Jimmy Bauer says:

    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

  20. RW1 says:

    Who is our defensive coach … I’ve watched more organised high school teams

  21. GunneRay says:

    We need another goal ASAP!

  22. Quantic Dream says:


    1. Quantic Dream says:

      Uhm, yeeeeeeessssss!!!

  23. GunneRay says:

    I knew we would need another!

  24. Sue says:

    Sead… you muppet!!

    1. Kedar says:

      Actually Holding missed pretty easy header….
      He completely misjudged his jump..

  25. Roshan says:

    Typical arsenal

  26. S says:

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

  27. RW1 says:

    Bough said about this team .., it’s either a clear out or relegation next season

  28. GunneRay says:

    Sead looks happier now but like you said, Sue.. “muppet”!

    1. Sue says:


  29. Sue says:

    He drinks estrella
    He eats paella
    The boy’s ******* magic!!!!

    1. GunneRay says:


  30. Gily says:

    Good fortune smiling all the way on Arsenal

  31. ahmad73 says:

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

  32. Goona says:

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