    So this weekend sees us come up against one of the big managerial recruits and a traditional rival for a top four spot.

    I expect a strong line up and hope our flair will be enough.

    Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
    Xhaka Cazorla
    Alexis Özil Iwobi

    I want us swarming Luiz and feel that front three will do that. Move the ball quickly and attack with pace.

    This won't be popular, but I wouldn't start Özil just for this game.

    After losing to Pool at home already, we really need to win this one. Got to make the Emirates a fortress and get three points against practically everybody to keep pressure the leaders, who haven't dropped a single point.

    I'd go with

    Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
    Coquelin Cazorla
    Alexis Özil Iwobi

    But my gut tells me we'll have

    Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
    Coquelin Cazorla
    Walcott Özil Iwobi

    3-0 to the Arsenal.

    After watching the post match interview I don't think we have any plans to start Xhaka here

    Same team that started against Hull to start now. And I'm mildly ok with that. I would have liked a stronger midfield but Wenger is really easing Xhaka in slowly.

    The good news is that they had to play 120 minutes midweek, the bad news is that Conte might be realising the importance of Fabregas now. We're due a victory against these *****. Hope we(Özil) turn up.

    2-0 for Chelsea and someone from our team gonna sent off after Diego Costa acting. We all know it gonna happen.

    for the better, IMO.

    Xhaka seems to still be getting up to speed. He dawdles on the ball. Lots of posters here correctly pointed out that he is not comfortable with the pressing style of the BPL

    We'll almost certainly play the same team as against Watford.

    We are going to struggle heavily I think with probably our worst midfield duo in Cazorla and Coquelin.

    Yeah, agree with this. Xhaka-Coq-Santi in midfield and Iwobi-Perez-Alexis up front.

    If Wenger put out the right team then we can edge a win in this fixture but it's long overdue we beat this ****s and I hope Costa gets sent off. We should use a page from the Liverpool game against them and press them high up, close their players down and make them make mistakes and really get in their faces.

    I love Santi but I'm not sure if he's suitable for this match and when you consider that both Wideman aren't apt at defending then putting Xhaka in the side would make more sense, though still risky.

    Think we'll draw 1-1

    Need a statement of intent here.

    We'll start the same team that played against Hull but should be Xhaka/Perez in for Cazorla/Walcott.

    What evidence is there to support this? He's started one game in the PL, against Leicester, where he was brilliant. I don't see how 5 minutes each week gets him acclimated to the PL. He's talented enough to adjust, start him.

    Barring any injuries it'll be the same team against Hull, but I'd LOVE to see both Xhaka and Perez start this.

    As much as I like both players the Xhaka Cazorla midfield just seems way too light weight and unathletic. I think the Cazorla and Coq midfield is our best (slightly ahead of Xhaka and El Neny).

    I agree with Dennis Bergkamp 10s lineups
