Hmmm. I’m guessing he is resting some players for Milan but really need to return to winning ways in the league. Burnley are right behind us.

Wilshere should have started

Wow clearly Wenger is focusing most of his sauad’s strength for the last possible chance of Champions League football.

Many players from last match replaced.

Kos can’t play 2 games that close together because of his Achilles. Ramsey has just returned, so we probably want to spare his dodgy hamstrings.

Not sure what’s up with Wilshere though.

Holding, elneny and iwobi in the starting eleven does not boost my confidence. Mkhytarian, ozil and aubemyang gives me confidence enough that I think we will beat Watford. Let’s score some nice goals and wipe that smirk off deeneys face

Don’t care now if we end up ninth in the league as long as we win the euro league. Makes total sense to rest Kos and Ramsey.

Drew Dewsall

Good to see Holding back in the first team. He will give that muppet a good going over.

I know it’s strong wishful thinking, but I hope we absolutely maul them and Deeney is asked after the match how it felt.

Beyond its general effect on morale this game means fuck all, unless you as a fan care what this Deeney Balls Guy thinks about your team.

Every game matters. We want to finish as high in the league as possible and show no marks like Watford and that ugly troll Deeney what Arsenal is about. Have some pride, how are players from all the corners of the earth meant to know what our club is about when we have fans like you?

Incredibly important game in terms of establishing that the Milan game wasn’t just a one off, but a sign of a team getting its shit together after some really tough times. Come on you reds, lets put in another proper Arsenal performance.
