Official team news and preview of Liverpool v Arsenal

It did not take a lot of thought to work out what the Arsenal starting line-up for the Premier League away clash with Liverpool would be. As soon as we heard that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had passed a late fitness test yesterday, Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal team almost picked itself.

Because of all the injury problems which have left the boss with little option in central midfield or the back four, Wenger has at least got two first choice full backs in Kieran Gibbs and Mathieu Debuchy, with Calum Chambers set yto partner Mertesacker in the centre of our defence.

Their biggest task today will be to keep Raheem Sterling as quiet as possible as Brendan Rodgers keeps the youngster in the centre of his attack. He is also sticking with a back three with Sakho taking the place of LOvren on the left of his back line. The Arsenal front three of Alexis, Welbeck and Giroud should be able to give them a torrid time with Cazorla providing craft and guile behind them.

Flamini and the Ox have a big job today to stop Gerrard, Henderson, Lucas and Markovic from controlling the midfield but as long as they can cope with that, Arsenal should have a much better day than the last time we were here.

    1. Air balls. Arsenal passes are ALL in the air. NO BALLS to feet.
      One set of passes to feet and Giroud scores.

      Ox running into traffic.

    1. Giroud and Per are the best we have at at heading balls out the box.
      I would have taken off Wellbeck.

      Campbell shows why is is NOT played. Wenger sent him on to mark Sterling and he does NOT get near Raheem.

    1. He’s only 21 and has been playing very well recently. He’s not doing great today but let’s not be too hard on him.

  1. No worry we will win this game. They can keep coming but I don’t think they going to score, mark my words.

  2. Poor Campbell, either not on the bench or just few mins play, how he is going to gain the confident.

  3. How are we still winning?

    Even with 10 men they look better.

    But we will take it over a Man U loss any day

  4. Liverpool deserve it.. We don’t deserve jack shit
    Our manager is the shits for making all the wrong subs..
    Kroenke – WENGER out!
    10 men….!!!!!!!!!!

    1. Dude, Per put some some last minute defense in there. Liverpool might have been up 3 or 4 without BFG’s long ass foot.

  5. They deserve it… I told you that Chambers guy is not a defender.. Look at all that space our players gave Skrtl

  6. What another poor away performance and no doubt Wenger will have his excuse book out already,shocking defending again !
    Wenger you are to blame again !

  7. Wenger will claim Liverpool is a hard place to come (which it is) but we played shite today and still lost a lead when they only had 10 men!!!
    Wenger you are a sad old fool and need to go now!
