Ospina (Cech cost us the match there last season, with another calamitous performance!)

Bellerin
Kosh
Mert
Monreal

Ozil
Wilshere
Coquelin
Xhaka
Ramsey

Sanchez

This match is easy from a tactical point of view; We need to flood the midfield and play counter attack.

We need to change formation. City will kill us in Midfield if don't, especially if Ramsey plays with the mindset he did against Liverpool and not Chelsea.

Sanchez up front over Laca. Laca doesn't offer us the pace on the break that Sanchez can.

man...

Wilshire and Ramsey and Ozil = a free travel pass valid for 90 minutes down the wings for city

With two out of three of the foll results:

-1 first half penalty concession

-1 first half sending off

-1 first half goal conceded in open play

Don't do it GS, don't put wilshere or Ozil or Ramsey on the wing

It will be Murder!

I would picked Welbeck if he was fit or Kolasinic for the left side.

We need to pack central areas more than the flank as Monreal and Bellerin at their best can handle Sterling and Sane. De Brunye could have a field day if we open up.

We need 3 in midfield i agree. Wenger will do the same thing he did against pool. He will play 5-3-2. In his opinion his mind he is doing the right thing by making ozil chime deeper and keep a compact 5-3 with no source in between those banks. What he didn't instant is that our players don't know how to soak pressure lines that and they end up conceding stupid goals. That's cause this formation invites pressure and we don't have anyone who can go past ppl under pressure centrally like wilshere when he was fit( he's got he is nowhere near his younger levels when it comes to going past people). I know ppl hate this, but rosicky was excellent at turning his marker.

My personal preference in such games has always been 4-4-3 and asking the fullbacks to sit more, but ain't gonna happen

He's more likely to drop Özil, push Ramsey forward and play Coquelin or Elneny instead

If you call knowing how the other team play and trying to think of a way to counter it a genius that's up to you. I call it simple tactics that any idiot should know!, obviously not Wenger!

For anyone who just can't help themselves

Oh it's already 1-0 to city and could have been at least 3.

Coquelin at CB no lacazette

City still in second gear but tearing us apart at will.
Arsenal had 33% possession mostly in our defence. Players already getting frustrated.

Playing Coq against top 6 opponents is a mistake. He struggles against quality opposition and loses possession easily when pressed. I would have started Wilshere instead but he played the full 90mins on Thurs.

2-0 in off the post.

It's going to be open floodgates now mark my words.

Not sure it was a penno bit more worryingly sterling was through on goal with nobody even near him.

This is disgusting

We might as well have a training cone in goal for penalties; Would it be too much to ask for Cech to even get close FFS!

Coquelin off for lacazette.

Coquelin made a few important challenges but played woefully out of position

He waited for Cech to dive before he struck it



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Otamendi needs to assault Laca to earn one.

I'm not sure why Alan Smith is repeatedly staujg it's not even a debate. From my eyes he's ahead of play he's definitely not behind him. I don't blame xhaka for being annoyed

City never had to get out of first gear the whole match. What goals did we have disallowed?
We hardly looked like scoring, they got goals when they needed them no more and no less.
