The first team will be back on show at the Emirates this evening after Tuesday’s exhilarating performance from the second stringers.
This game could set the tone for a very happy festive period. The players owe us a special win after their dismal away performance at Anfield.
Maybe Sanchez will realise he can boost his number of potential January suitors by putting in a decent show with some goals.
Will we revert to a back three now that Shkodran’s bruises have faded? Iwobi’s Mum will be disappointed if he doesn’t play as he adds much needed creativity and link play.
Presumably Lacazette will be back in the starting line up. Unless Sanchez is shoe-horned into the striker’s role.
Perhaps Xhaka needs a break to recapture (?) some form. Maybe Maitland-Niles (Con) could play DM as Micky saw him play there once against Reading.
Let’s hope we can start creating chances again and even better, take some of them.
Kos …. Shkod… Nacho
Up The Arsenal.
