No Alexis because we’re too fucking smart to bring him back early; or no Alexis because he’s not ready?

Arsene Wenger

Little bit both.


The heat is on surely.


Obviously it would been great to have had Alexis atleast on the bench.

Now the only offensive change we can make is Ox.

However COYG, let’s win this game.

Lets win this game guys am sure of another win for us gunners. Our league title wins starts now,coyg!


COYG!!! We can do this lads, particularly glad we are not rushing Alexis back just cos of this game,I’ve got faith in the rest of the lads to show strong character by beating city tonight…. Let’s go ARSENAL, COM’ON!!!!


I reckon Alexis would be on the bench if he was even remotely fit, so most likely he’s had a little setback.

Two weeks, no worries *shudder*


2-0 arsenal?!


We did the Greeks with this team. We can do Citeh I’m confident. COYG




Anyone else feeling nervous?!?!


You know you love this team when even though it is the first day of Xmas break you decline the lie in in favour of watching the 7am kickoff live! Make me proud boys, I could be snoozing!


I can see us getting smashed n ripped apart without sanchez


My team talk
1:Don’t lose.


Such a big game.. COYG


Look at their bench compared to ours! Not trying to be negative but wouldn’t mind seeing some of our boys get off the treatment table!


Wenger couldn’t have Alexis on the bench on not use him, and I think Alexis would put even more pressure on Wenger to put him in. Saving himself from himself.

No Debuchy either. Would like to see a RB in January more interested in fighting for a spot than moaning about a lack of opportunity.


If he isn’t injured than this surely must mean he is off in January


I’m scared.

Please win.

I’d never wish an injury on a player.
I hope Aguero gets locked in the changing room.


Not too confident about this one but no matter what they say, this match won’t decide the title.


Leicester beat city and we beat Leicester, we will beat shitty. Come on the Arsenal!


Let them have the ball, passing it around and the commentators screaming how Citeh are better… then BANG! We’ve seen this before. Last time it was at Etihad COYG. Do them nicely


See? They never learn. If I was pellegrini I will revert to a defensive formation because an onslaught is on the way here


Na na na naa na na na naa Giroud!!!


Wow nice first half, don’t know why, but still feeling nervous but happy


Like I said, we would beat Shitty!!!!! Up the Arsenaaaal!

Rsa gooner

The last two times we won the league we were 2nd place at christmas…coyg.
