The North London Derby has come early this year. I know most are not excited seeing these preseason games but I,for one, am extremely excited about this game. I think this game will determine how we start the premier League season.
The reason I think it would be devasating because after listening to some commentators, they were generally scared for us to play Brentford. One even going as far as to say he prefers to play the promoted sides after they have lost a few games and their confidence shattered. This is how far we have fallen our supporter was scared to play a newly promoted side.
Only being able to see first half of Tottenham game vs Chelsea they looked mediocre. So I was really shocked to see, when I reached home that the score was 2-2. We can’t allow this to happen, once we get a foot hold of a game we need to kill it off.
Both sides will be playing some variation of a 433 so they might cancel each other out. The winner would be basically down to who wants it more and is clinical infront of goal (YES am looking at you Aubameyang). Arsenal does have the added advantage because ‘Mr Bong to score against Arsenal’ will be missing the game.
With Partey out I expect a midfield of Xhaka and Elneny. I know most fans would like Aubameyang to be dropped and replaced with Eddie, knowing Arteta we he will go for his usual side and if he makes any changes, he might play Eddie over Laca.
Would love to see a midfield with Willock but this is feeling like EMI 2.0 where I’m calling for Arteta to give him a chance but instead of listening to me he lets him go on loan or worse still, he sells him and Newcastle finish in CL position with Willock winning golden boot.
Here’s my lineup …..
Pepe ESR Auba
