Our defensive issues are still glaring and it is not having a go at the defenders but rather at our team set-up or cohesiveness on defensive and attacking phases.
We have an amazing strikeforce with Auba, Laca, Pepe and now supplemented by Martinelli and even Saka.
We have a midfielder who seems to have what it takes to be our box to box in Guendouzi and we have two very slicks passers of the ball in Ozil and Ceballos.
We also have some pace in our full-backs that are good going forward and our CBs may not be the best but they are rather robust and have heart and two of them (Holding and Luiz) have a decent passing range so why is it that we are still conceding chances for fun?
I believe it comes down to the set-up and instructions to the team and although we do not have the most talented squad, I certainly think that it is more talented than Leicester’s and more capable than the current Chelsea and Utd’s squad this season.
Finishing outside the Top 4 this season would be a massive disappointment to say the least. I am hoping that Emery is going to have the wits to try something else vs Wolves, who almost beat us at the Emirates last year.
Wolves have a good squad with some good players like Traore, Jimenez, Neves,Vinagre and Jota for example not to mention Moutinho, Dedonker and Boly. They are strong, good at handling the ball and offer a pacy yet physical opposition.
Here is my team:
Sokratis, Holding, Luiz
Bellerin, Douzi, Torreira (or Chambers or Willock), Tierney
Chambers, Sokratis, Luiz, Kola
Douzi, Torreira, Ceballos
Pepe, Laca, Auba
I am hoping for a 2-1 win but recently we have given up leads so…it may end up as a 2-2.
