The team Arsenal WILL play against Hull

There has been much talk from the Arsenal fans discussing who they want Wenger to start against Hull City tomorrow, but I am pretty good at reading the Bosses mind and I am now going to tell you the team that he WILL name to start the game, and we will find out how I get on when he publishes the team sheet at about 12.00 tomorrow.

For starters we all know that Wilshere (hah!), Cazorla and Rosicky are still a long way from being ready to play, and we also know that Gabriel is back in Brazil having treatment, but otherwise Wenger has practically his whole squad to choose from but will want to save as many legs for Tuesday as possible.

Ospina was injured for the last round against Sunderland but he will definitely be back in goal tomorrow. There was talk of Gibbs getting a knock last week and Koscielny got a dead leg, but Wenger didn’t even think Gibbs was worthy of discussion in the injury round up, and he said of Laurent: “Koscielny is doing well. He has a test this morning and he looks positive.”

I think Gibbs and Bellerin will be starting, but Koss will be on the bench with Chambers starting alongside Mertesacker. Campbell and Iwobi are definite FA Cup starters nowadays, and Welbeck will get his first start of the season. Coquelin, Ozil and Alexis will be on the bench, with Flamini and Elneny in the middle. Chamberlain and Walcott will also be saved for Tuesday for their counter-attacking speed, which Giroud will get a chance to get back to goalscoring ways.

So here is the team that Wenger will pick:

Bellerin, Chambers, Mertesacker, Gibbs
Elneny, Flamini, Campbell
Welbeck, Giroud, Iwobi

Am I right?

  1. You need to switch Flamini and Iwobi…

    Secondly, Walcott needs to play. He hasn’t played much and we need to give him some momentum heading up to the Barca game next week.

  3. I want Welbeck to play CF with campbell and Ox on the flanks..Iwobi in the hole then Elneny and Flamini..
    We need to take this very serious!

  4. Before his goal against Leicester, Walcott haven’t been in great form so I think He should start against Hull…. Campbell Walcott Welbeck…They can all swap wings in the game…

  5. My pick:

    ———— Ospina
    Bellerin – Mert – Chambers – Gibbs
    ——- Elneny – Flamini
    OX ——- Iwobi ——- Campbell
    ———- Walcott

    Bench: Macey, Bielik, Sanchez, Welbeck, Arteta, Monreal
    Rest: Özil, Gabriel, Coquelin, Ramsey, Cech, Giroud

  6. I think its worth playing Giroud bcos vs barca we will need pace on the counter (not girouds strong point) and set pieces cud be key (Walcott isn’t exactly a tank) Who has pace and strength up top for Arsenal??? Welbeck!!!! Plus he is in good form and high on confidence after Leicester. Why not???

  7. All permutations. You people don’t know Wenger. Making predictions is looking for disappointment. I’ll take any team and pray for them to succeed.

  8. Ospina/Cech ..even though he’ll go with Ospina for sure. Cech is awesome.

    Personally Id prefer to keep Alexis on bench and go with Joel Ox and Iwobi as attacking three, then having choice between Alexis Ozil Ramsey Giroud Welbeck and Coquelin to get minutes from bench. In my opinion my best guess is that Wenger will go with team above.
