Why people want to see 3 DM's against Newcastle?
Don't even have 3 DM's in the squad.
Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira, Willock.
I'm not counting Elneny as he's hardly even a footballer.
I see only one in that list who can defend
DEFENSIVE midfielder )))))
Torreira the only one, others are central midfielders.
The start of the season might end up being a bit tough, but we should be pretty good as soon as all players slot in.
Just get this in your head AM, except Mkhi we've only got speedsters for the wings now. No more **** subs, Auba, Martinelli, Saka, Reiss and Pepe it is
Not ideal to start with zero new signings which looks likely. We need to pick up points while everyone is slowly coming back, even if we are second best, just need to pick up the three points. We saw last season how crucial a single point can be at the end of the season.
I would start Ceballos. He didn't have much game time in pre-season and is new to the league. Don't want our midfielders dominated again which will put tremendous strain on our defence.
If willock doesn't start don't see the point of our youth strategy and the pre season. We know emery isn't afraid of starting youngsters in responsible positions ala guendo and holding. Otherwise it will start smelling of favoritism
Should win this. Newcastle is in shambles.
We cant have Luiz in the matchday squad, right?
Want a win here no excuses Emery...
We needed to have it done before 5pm.
Think we'll see: Leno; AMN Chambers Sokratis Monreal; Xhaka Willock; Mkhitaryan Özil Nelson; Aubameyang
Not ideal. Hopefully Ceballos, Lacazette, Pepe and Torreira are fit/ match fit for this one
Super excited that football is back! I would LOVE to see this lineup as I am confident we would play some sexy football and that Luiz and Papa will keep Andy silent!
i think all these last 4 players you mention are short in fitness Laca is ready but after his knock at Emirates cup we may start him on bench here
Important not to overreact to the performance in this game. I'm not expecting any signings to start and we have injuries to first teamers, possibly including Laca.
Real chance we will be missing
That's most our first 11. But I do expect Laca to start and maybe Luiz. Emery is always slow at integrating new signings.
My guess is
AMN Luiz Sokratis Kola
Auba Özil Mkhi
Douzi / Torreira
Honestly have a bad feeling Mkhi sneaks in just because of seniority. Hope I'm wrong.
Yeah, I agree. Ceballos got a knock in one of the pre-season games too
