Official teams and preview of Arsenal v Anderlecht

Arsene Wenger and his Arsenal players have a great chance to qualify for the next round of the Champions League by beating Anderlecht at the Emirates tonight. And confidence in the dressing room will be much higher than the last time we lined up against the Belgians, after that late win and two EPL wins with clean sheets to boot.

But the Frenchman will also be wary after they nearly beat us last time and the fact that they have the players to really hurt us on the counter attack. So I expect that Arsenal will try to dominate cpossession and create chances without being too gung ho.

And the boss has made just one change to the starting XI that won our last two games convincingly, with the fit again Aaron Ramsey coming in to the centre of the pitch instead of Mathieu Flamini. So although that is a positive move, it should not change the shape of the team. Monreal plays in the centre of defence again with Chambers on the right.

Szcesny
Chambers, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs
Ramsey, Arteta, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorl
Alexis, Welbeck

subs: Martinez, Bellerin, Flamini, Rosicky, Podolski, Walcott, Sanogo

So the Gunners have a strong looking bench if we need it and we all hope to see Theo Walcott get some more time on the pitch to sharpen up, but hopefully he will be able to come on with the points already secured.

  18. Invincibles49 says:

    WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF

  19. CraigZWE says:

    Blame the poor officiating for the first offside goal that inspired the come back.

    Then blame Wenger for overplaying players.

    Sanchez and Welbeck look exhausted.

    1. Mick The Gooner says:

      Everyone looked exhausted tonight. Just hoofed the ball up the pitch, no one had the energy to do anything with it so it just came straight back at us.

  20. Justsoccerfan says:

    Wenger: 1st goal is off side, 2nd goal I don’t think is penalty, very bad ref.

    1. CraigZWE says:

      They give that on side, yet Gibbs is mile on side last Saturday and he is judged off.

      WTF refs must wake up.

      But can’t blame them for other 2 goals

    2. Justsoccerfan says:

      And the fans are too quiet.

  21. LoCkAy says:

    A PREMIER LEAGUE TEAM WITH 2CB… ONLY !!!

    I THINK WE ARE GETTING CLOSE TO THE END…

    WENGER IS A LAZY, USELESS, POOR AND INEPT MANAGER…

    WHY THE F*CK IS HE STILL AT ARSENAL ???

    JUST, JUST UNBELIEVABLE !!!!

  22. Shah of Arsenal says:

    Wow… How did we **** this one up…. 3-0 come on….

  23. Matt says:

    Three nil and we f*cked it up.

  24. Ks-Gunner says:

    Eat shet Wenger

  25. Invincibles49 says:

    And stadium is getting empty already. What is wrong with this f#king club ?!??

  26. jackieboy says:

    Wenger said “We have been warned”. What excuse has he got now? Idiot.

  27. LoCkAy says:

    TOTAL DISASTER….
    WHAT HE CAN DO IS COMPLAIN TO THE THIRD REFEREE…!!!

    STUPID OLD MAN WITH NO MANAGERIAL QUALITIES…!!

    YOU’RE OVER MATE… LEAVE WITH YOUR PRIDE STILL INTACT

    3-3 AGAINST ANDERLECHT….

    F*CKING JOKE

    WE ARE CONDEMNED TO FINISH SECOND AND MEET ANOTHER “TOP TEAM” THAT WILL, AGAIN, KICK US OUT OF THE COMPETITON…

    BUSINESS AS USUAL…!!!

  28. Ronny331 says:

    3-3 bkoody joke! I blame wenger for our degenxesive shambles and rhe the players for backing off when they thought rhe game was won. Talk your way out of this one wenger you di*k.

  29. Adienl says:

    I may need meds. I’m laughing hysterically and I’m unable to control it.
    3-3,
    Seriously. What’s this?
    Hahahahahahahahaha

  30. Justsoccerfan says:

    Sanchez: How many goals I need to score men?

  31. john0711 says:

    Guys this is exactly what we’ve been sayin NO DM NO CB
    Mert not got it anymore
    Sanchez world class but tired the last 25 mins
    Flamini not good enough
    Arteta not good enough
    SANTI is no left sided player
    Welbeck nice lad but 3 rd choice striker
    Ra,set needs benching for a long while

  32. marky958 says:

    Same old shit! Wtf happened and Wenger still thinks with this team we can catch Chelski and win the league, dilusional old git!

    1. john0711 says:

      The only way we will catch them is if we get Maureen and 10 of their players

  33. Ronny331 says:

    For me its not rhw result that’s bad enough but rhe fact we were 3 up and couldn’t see the game out against anderlecht ffs!; how the mighty have fallen.

  34. LoCkAy says:

    THE BOARD SIGNED A GUY WHO WAS ALREADY FINISHED ON THE FOOTBALL SCENE…!!

    THIS IS A F*CKING FARCE…!! AND HE WILL TELL YOU WE ARE A “TOP CLUB”.

    I HAVE NEVER ARSENAL SO FRAGILE AND WEAK…!!

    WHAT WILL BE THE EXCUSES THIS TIME?

    DISGRACEFUL MANAGER… CANNOT EVEN TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES FOR HIS F*CK UPS !!!

    DELUSIONAL FOOL !

  35. Ronny331 says:

    @john0711. Itsu almost rip it up and start again, so many players either roo old or not good enough. Get shopping arsene or step aside.

    1. john0711 says:

      Agree 100% we’ve all seen this coming, we’ve just been lucky no one has punished us before

  36. Me says:

    Arsenal are an absolute disgrace, I don’t give a **** about players feeling tired and I certainly don’t give a **** about refs decisions – we were three nil up.

    Charlie Nicholas said quite rightly we have gone backwards, not forwards. How can we be in a situation where we have just TWO centre backs ?

    Wenger is incompetent – utterly incompetent.

    He is completely to blame for everything, he has to go….

  37. TongaBull says:

    and u mother fuc**kers thunbed us down and called us the Wenger Out Bridgade.. I hate you all together with damn ass**hole father of yours AW

  38. Ronny331 says:

    When all our emotion has died back down im looking forward to some tactical analysis of this performance, (not ks individual ratings but what we did wrong as a team). Foreme we atopped playing at the 3rd goal and had an eye on the weeekend, we also kept allowing too may pkayers forward instead of beibg defensively disciplined. Also not enough effort, fight, forrn or quality from a number of our players. Feel for mon real playing alongside per bet he’s sympathetic of kos now!

  39. Ronny331 says:

    A usual the worlds media, pundits and fans will be laughing at us tonight, spurs fans will be having an extra beer on us! Cheers arsene.
