Leno's a bit sh*t if we're honest.

Yes,
but he's the best of the sh*t keepers.

This was a big game for him today.
Hopefully he will have learned.

Still better than Cech. The first goal today was tricky one. I think his biggest weakness is commanding the box during set pieces.

But he has brought calm to defense playing out from the back and no one is panicking anymore as we were with Cech.

We really can beat Man Utd if the performance is good. An early goal and their fans will turn on players. But it'll be tough,

I dont agree. Almunia was a bit @#$%&. The goal today has been his only real howler this season and it didn't end up costing us anything. In truth, sokratis shouldn't have pushed alli over and Torriera should have covered the near post better. Yes there was th goal against Liverpool but I'd say that was more unlucky than a proper howler.

After the keepers we've had since lehmann left, I'm happy with someone who only makes a mistake once every 10 games.

Really bag on Leno, he has been solid and the bounce on that goal is what caused him problems.

I really like the lineup and want to see us play without Xahaka, which will happen thru suspension.


Ozil should be pretty fresh and something to prove, especially with United.

Don't see emery changing it. Ozil will be in the bench since it's an away game. Ramsey might get his first star in the pl in a while

Please let us win for once at OT. Even when Moyes was in charge and everybody was beating them we still lost 1-0. Come on lads, we can do this.

Leno's made two in the last four. It might be more than that. It depends what constitutes a mistake I guess. Is a goalkeeping mistake only an error which results in Arsenal conceding a goal, or is it any error in judgement?

Let's put Cech back in. Leno is bad news I reckon.

Im more worried about who gets Xhaka position



- 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.

Refreshing to see someone on here actually giving him credit for performances this season and realising he is likely going to be missed. His set pieces have been outstanding also, seems to create danger on regular basis.

I am worried too, it is likely Guendouzi which will be a big ask. Hopefully Ramsey starts too with the instruction to use that engine to track back and get forward at same time.

Xhaka has been getting in his interceptions as well. Hes reduced his misplaced passes, offensively he was always a threat. Some crucial goals. I wanted him gone, but have been impressed with him positionally in the past 4 games, and Torreira is the reason as he is covering.

Xhaka has intercepted/fouled as well when Torreira is little higher, so its not like lucas is baby sitting him.

His set piece delivery is the best seen at arsenal since pires/henry imho.
Cesc s delivery was always floated (cech gobbled up his corners 90% of the time) , rvp s slightly faster but still not on par with Xhaka.

Ozils slightly floated as well, like rvps

Arsenal are almost 2 to 1 in the betting.

Emery won't play 4-2-3-1 away at Utd. He'll stick with the 3 CB's formation he's played last couple of games.

Looks like Monreal could be fit which would be a huge boost.
