Even without Alexis, this is arguably the closest to a first choice team we’ve had all season. And this must be what only the second league game both Ozil and Walcott have started in two seasons? Crazy

Alexstratz

No Alexis so this Özil-Cazorla partnership better work out.

Moonie

Alexis isn’t even on the bench? I thought Arsene would at least have him on the bench. Is this a precaution or….

SubP

Don’t worry, there’s Rozza

Goon

Sanchez moved to Villa! When did this happen?

Witoldo

They bid 40,000,002 for him and we couldn’t resist.

LKoscielny6

Frightening to think that’s our attack and were missing Alexis, welbz, the ox and wilshere! Coyg!!

La Défense

Although Welbz and Wilsh are a bit rubbish tbh…

Serge

Worst bench this season?

goonerbynature

Reassuring to have real live defenders on it though.

Serge

Attacking wise…

Stone

Decently strong personnel though but Rosicky is the only experienced attacking option

goonerbynature

If ever a bench was designed for a lead.

Backs to the wall? Chambers/Gabriel l

Need control of the game back? Rosicky and Gibbs

Coasting? Akpom

Dave

That midfield is just sexy. That is all.

Why not start flamini? Coquelin is on four yellow cards if i’m not mistaking, he might miss the crucial game at Sp*rs.

Stone

He won’t get suspended though, you have to collect 5 yellows before a certain date, I think it’s by the end of December.

goonerbynature

Don’t think so; amnesty

Javis

Today is about trying to get the best out of Mesut and Santi. One will primarily play out left. I’d imagine they will swap throughout the game, we might be a small bit narrow but Theo will look to get in behind all game, that’s a huge plus..We’ll have to much for Villa. Up the Arse.

Gargoyle

3 defenders, a goalkeeper and a defensive midfielder on the bench. You might think we’re playing Bayern. I kid I kid. COYG

We don’t park the bus like Chelski tho

AntiSpud

Looking forward to today. Should be a good hard game. Hopefully a nice 3nil win. Gd luck boys

Man Manny

Salivating already! That’s one good team and bench. Could really get messy for Villa.

Forfuckssake

The only change I would of made would of been Mozart starting from form and Ozil on the bench but not disappointed with that option. Save Mozart to give the spuds a nightmare next week.

F3AR-BONER

GOYG!! Give me a perfect start to my 30th year on this earth, no better present than all 3 points!

Robstar

have just seen we have that shit ref so we have no chance.

FRANCIS

5 star Coq……

AntiSpud

And they did. Sorry villa you’ve just been hit by a team on the rise. Wrong team wrong time
