Match against Bentford - Time for Emery to put money where his mouth is?

If this match is not time to start all those talented youngsters, which match is?

Didn't he said he is here to develop youngsters and they will be given opportunities to play?

Nketiah, Smith-Rowe, Joe Willock, Pleguezuelo, et al?
Mavropanos is out for 4 weeks and Monreal needed a rest now.

isn't this match time for Iwobi to play as NO. 10?

...........................……. Leno

...Lichsteiner ... Mustafi ... Holding ... Pleguezuelo

............….. Elneny ......……...…. Willock

... Welbeck ................ Iwobi ...............Smith-Rowe

.....................……... Nketiah

I will rest Guedouzi and play Willock instead.


Iwobi and Smith-Rowe can inter-change to drag opponent out of shape and to stop Bentford from man-marking them.


Lichsteiner can play a more forward role like he did at Juventus in an attacking 3-5-2 with Welbeck cutting inward as an attacker with Mustafi-Holding-Pleguezeulo as the 3 no. CB.


It is up to Iwobi, WIllock and SMith-Rowe to protect left flank.

Against Brentford at home in the cup, I hope to see Emery playing a 4-1-3-2.

I wish to see some of the youngsters start.

Saka can play left back, he is good enough. Some of his play for the U-18 and U-23 has been phenomenal.

Elneny can play as the anchor in a diamond midfeld behind a combination of Rowe, Mkhi and Iwobi, this will give the chance for Welbeck and Nketiah to play together up front.


.......................... Leno

...Lichsteiner ... Mavropanos... Holding.... Saka

............….. Elneny ......……...…

Smith-Rowe............Mkhitaryan ............. Iwobi

.............Nketiah.......... Welbeck


Guendozi can replace Elneny at the hour mark

Emery is either A. Taking every tournament more seriously or B. Lacking some of the faith in youth that Wenger had.

With the exception of Smith Rowe, we played a very very strong team tonight. Arguably stronger than Wenger would have against a team like Brentford

I agree, and one of Wenger's teams would ahve lost to night. Brentford put up one hell of a fight.
Plus Emery needs to make sure all his squad get games



- 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.
