Match against Rennes - Pointless to bench Ozil for this game.

Laca is suspended; and Torreira suspended for 3 league games.

if Ramsey is to start against ManU with him to stop Pogba from playing, it is natural to rest him and play Ozil against an European side.

This game can't comes fats enough for Auba to pick himself up from the ground and redempt himself by scoring.

The team really pick itself; and I fancy Emery will pick the same team as against Bournemouth but will he trust Jenkinson over Mustafi and over AMN?

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

... Jenkinson ... Sokratis ... Koscielny ... Kolasinac

..... ..... ..... Guendouzi ..... ..... Xhaka

... Mkhitaryan ..... Ozil ..... Suarez

..... ..... ..... ..... AUbameyang

I will rest Iwobi and time to play Suarez.

Suspend Emery rotated the squad against ManU with an eye against Rennes and then ManU.

We need Ramsey against ManU to battle it out in midfield and also to man-mark Pogba to stop ManU from playing.

The pace of Jenkinson and Kolasinac is vital to stop those pacy wingers from Rennes attacking down the flank.
And it is vital to rest Monreal for ManU game.


Mustafi?
let's face it. He is our best RB in a defensive sense and stop Tiny Totts from raiding down our right flank.
If only Emery instructed him to stay out of the box.

3 vital game sin a row - Tiny Totts, Rennes and ManU.


Emery got his team selection right against Bournemouth and Tiny Totts.

It will be most interesting to see his team selection against Rennes.

Mkhitaryan?
We can't rest him when he is on-fire and rediscovers his mojo and clearly, a player that cna win game single-handed and best of all, we have two creative playmakers on the pitch that will bewilder opponents from man-marking Ozil out of the game.


The presence of Ozil alone will create more space for Mkhitaryan ... and for Xhaka to drive inside passing channels ... and will SUarez benefits from all these spaces created by both Ozil and Mkhitaryan.


It is an European tie and surely Ozil and Suarez will thrive in this kind of game?

Its also an away tie which needs taking into account



- 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.

That is the point.
An away European tie will settle once and for all whether Ozil has a future under Emery. A physical French side is not as intimidating and physical and battling teams as away games against physical Burnley, Cardiff, ManU, Everton, Wolves, WHU and Liverpool.

Rennes is a skillful side with plenty of pace and not a team of kickers and hackers like English teams.

Put Mkhitaryan, Iwobi and Xhaka on the bench against Rennes. Partner Torreira with Elneny in midfield. Isn't AMN available? Play him in front of Jenkinson.

I think the point is to win the game, not set an exam for Ozil.

Agreed.
But they are fit enough to play one half to make a difference.
I am sure Ozil will not start against ManU and Emery will rotate the squad (rest Mkhi and Iwobi, both key players against ManU) and play him for 90 minutes against Rennes.

With Torreira suspended for the united game I assume he will play against Rennes and Guendouzi may be rested (possibly Xhaka as well.)

I assume it will be Aubameyang who will lead the line on his own as well.

As Lacazette is suspended there is no other option

I forgot about that.

I also completely forgot that we have Denis Suarez as well. I suspect our manager might have also.
