Official FA cup teams and preview of Man Utd v Arsenal

Okay Arsenal fans this it, the latest chance for the Gunners to take advantage of the struggles of our old enemy and get one over Manchester United. There is the small matter of a trip to Wembley for the FA cup semi-final as a prize as well.

Louis van Gaal has made just one change to his side, with Luke Shaw coming in for the banned Jonny Evans and Rojo moving from left back to the centre. So Di Maria and Fellaini keep their places and Falcao stays on the bench.

Arsene Wenger has been a lot more liberal with his team selection, making five changes to the Arsenal line up that beat QPR last week. It is no surprise to see the boss bring Danny Welbeck in, hoping to get some of that fgormer club effect from the England striker.

We already knew that Szczesny and Mertesacker were set to start, with the other two players coming in the Spanish left back Nacho Monreal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in central midfield. Giroud drops to the bench so Ozil will be playing in one of the wide forward roles with Welbeck in the centre and Alexis on the other side. Cazorla moves back to his favoured CAM role.

Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Alezis, Chamberlain, Cazorla, Ozil

subs: Martinez, Chambers, Gibbs, Ramsey, Walcott, Akpom, Giroud

  1. FFS Welbeck hold onto the ball for once. Everytime the balls comes into him he loses it there and then.. smg

  2. Okay Danny, you’ve redeemed yourself. Now let’s get the forward in who can hold up the ball please

    1. I have come to the conclusion that:
      1)you are Nameless in disguise

      2) You are a very sick old man

  3. Wow. Alexis just completely burned Valencia. You know, the player FIFA said was the fastest in the world?

  4. That the problem with our defence, every time back pass to our goalie than our goal kick will go to them to easily attack us. Mert is alway so nervy.

  5. Oh boy, if Welbeck had missed that goal I would have smashed the TV lol

    Still only 1 goal lead.

    Lets score another one for a proper cushion


  6. We should give Welbeck some credit cos if that chance go to Giroud, I dont think he got the pace to beat the goalie.

  7. thats why u need a goal keeper. keep u in the game. would any arsenal goalie saved that from cazorla??!!

  8. how many of us thinking arsenal gonna fxxk this up from this situation? thats the pathetic mind set we ve been made accustomed to

  9. why the hell is our full backs bombarding now. why aint arsene shouting at them to stay back

  10. what an idiot januzaj. dont even know how to dive. thank god for once we hv a fair referee at old trafford

    1. Not a good day for you Hafiz your team lost and lost to the better team. Di mari what a flop.

  11. Ibfeel like weve just won the cl, beat my most hated team on their patch finally! Great and strong refereeing with some luck going our way for a change. Could have had three or four if not for degea. Coyg.

  12. We played well, we are not perfect but darn today we were the BEST….nominate the whole team MenOTM…screw MANURE…..Welbeck there is someone watching for you up there well done lad.
