Re: Match against Ostermunds - Redemption as flat-track bully?

Ostermunds is well-organized and disciplined.
They will hit us on the counter-attacks.

But with our possession game, denying them the ball all the time, surely we can win easily?
With Ozil and Mkhi creating 10+ goal scoring chances, let's hope the likes of Welbeck and Iwobi can step up and score against minnows.

Kos and Wilshere are left behind as a precautionary measure.
And we are left with:

If Wenger said he is going to field his "strongest" team ...


.................................Ospina

.......Chambers........Mustafi........Monreal

...Bellerin.........Elneny........Xhaka..........Iwobi

.......................Ozil.............Mkhitaryan

.............................Welbeck

I would play 3-4-3, narrowing the game and driving through the centre with short and quick passes to overwhelm the defence, keeping the game tight and preventing Ostermunds from attacking down our flanks.

We are at our best when controlling the game and concentrating all plays in the middle with both Bellerin and Monreal cutting in to pass on the ground instead of delivering those awful and inaccurate crosses that always missed Arsenal players.

Iwobi is a flat-track bully and his closed control and dribbling skills should serve him well in this game.

Now, how many scuffled goals will Welbeck scored?
