Wenger may well be going strong, but that’s an unbelievably weak bench.

CoYG, let’s get the job done, with a win.

We are nicely building up the confidence and form for the business end of this tournament.

In the bench. Good solid backup

Both he and Monreal are good in the final third but Monreal is much tidier with the ball and is a bit ahead of him defensively. I love me some Kola but this is the sensible move

This team should have more than enough to complete the job. Let’s get out there and do it! COYG

Completely unrelated, but also thoroughly enjoying seeing everyone completely turn on Kane in the current BBC article surrounding his appeal to be awarded a goal. What more would you expect from such a small team mentality?

so lame, I really hope Salah wins the golden boot. Wish we bought him, what a bargain for 35 million pounds.

No Iwobi that’s ok. Mert on the bench why, alongside two other CBs? Anyway it looks good COYG!

Iwobi is not even on the bench. Is he injured?
I figured only he or Welbeck would start rather than both, but for him not to be included is surprising.

Gosh! Our bench is so weak.

COYG anyways

Iwobi injured? Would have thought he was in contention to start over Jack, instead not in the squad. COYG!! #LoveEuropaLeague

Iwobi not even listed?
Or is this part of increased security measures?

After last week I must admit I worry most about Jack giving the ball away.

3 centre backs on the bench when we could have had willock in there. More Wenger madness.

The league is the competition for youngsters now, no point risking our only route back into the CL

CSKA with the same back 3 – great news!

Expected team but I’d rather see Chambers in there than Mustafi who seems to have his mind elsewhere these days.
