    Big game early in the season, we host Liverpool. They'll be hoping to avenge their last defeat here, when we beat them 4-1. We've a good record against Liverpool at The Emirates, they'll come here and try to play which will suit us nicely.

    Reckon we'll see the same team that beat Palace;

    Bellerin Mert Kos Monreal
    Coquelin Cazorla
    Sanchez Özil Ramsey

    Subs: Ospina, Gabriel, Debuchy, Gibbs, Arteta, Chamberlain, Walcott.

    If memory serves this is the first game we played Ramsey out wide and it worked a treat. But that was largely due to the fact that Liverpool were playing with 3 at the back, they've now reverted to a back four with the signings of Gomez and Clyne.

    Fancy us to do them, Kos usually does well against Benteke and their attack lacks genuine pace. 3-0. Giroud, Alexis and Ramsey with the goals.

    Love beating Scousers. Hope I'm not in work for this.

    Been hoping Theo would start in this one not really sure where, as long as he's starting.

    We need to win this, think we will as well after our last home game. Alexis will score and we'll just about edge it I think, 3-1.

    We should know by now how to overrun this bunch. They can't play with us when we're on our game. If we don't win this it'll be down to us, not them.

    Would like to see Ramsey and Giroud dropped from the starting 11 and Walcott and Ox in place of them - unlikely to happen though.

    I imagine both of them would make lots of trouble for Pool, I don't think they cope well with pacy, explosive players, Bellerin to start as well for sure, did a number on them in that 4-1

    Same team I'd say. I'd like to replace Giroud but he is the only ST in the squad at the minute, until Welbeck returns or we buy.

    Bellerin/Ox on the right. Theo up front....looks disastrous to me.

    The usual back 5.
    Coquelin Cazorla
    Ox Özil Alexis

    Gonna keep repeating this line up every week untill it gets played haha

    But agree with the OP that we will probably see the same team again. That team did run them ragged last season so it won't be the end of the world. Just love seeing us with pace and directness.

    Massive game for us. Gonna go with 2-1 to the Arsenal.

    Obviously going to be the same team as today.

    Against Pool it maybe could just slightly somehow kind of in a way work?

    I think AW will go with Theo for this one. If we had a big DM to help us with set pieces, it wouldnt even be questionable

    Is Bellerin that bad of a defender he needs Ramsey babysitting him? The same Ramsey who is pretty much always in the centre of the pitch anyway?

    Let's not forget how well we played with Bellerin and Ox on the right last season. They were used together a number of times. Most notably City away, which was our best defensive performance of the season.

    Hard to predict how they'll lineup with all their new players and a week to go, so they may get injuries, but the following seems likely:

    Clyne Skrtel Lovren Moreno
    Milner Henderson
    Firmino Coutinho Lallana
    After last season I think they'll sit deep and try and get us on the counter.

    Can't see any changes being made, hopefully another week makes that much quicker. Had he been sharper today it would of been 2/3-0 before Palace had scored.

    Actually looking at that Liverpool team I'm going to revise my prediction and say 4-0.

    Brendan will tell the players to only trust themselves. And their family. And their supporters. Also that they can live days without water but not without hope.

    Then we'll beat them at the Emirates like we always do, irrespective of whether we play Ramsey or Ox or Theo. Liverpool is our *****, especially at home.

    Need to start Theo. Love Giroud, but this is the type of game that Theo will thrive in.
