Ok, I didn't see that one coming. Kieran Gibbs starts on the left wing after his impressive cameo against Tottenham the last time we took to the field. Gibbs made an impact when he came onto the pitch and managed to get the goal late in the second half. What I find most interesting will be how Alexis will function assuming he will be moved to the right of the pitch. His special move of cutting inside his man and driving into a central position may not work quite the same from the right but perhaps he will go past his man on the flank a little more from that side. We shall see.

The team sheets are out for the Bayern Munich vs Arsenal match. We've been dealt another blow as Laurent Koscielny misses the game with a hip injury. The knock does not seen serious as he takes his place on the Arsenal bench. That means that Gabriel comes back into the side in his place. The rest of the team is unchanged from the side that won 3-0 at Swansea at the weekend, so the rumours of Kieran Gibbs starting on the flank was a load of rubbish.

 

Oliver Giroud's impact off the bench on Tuesday night has given him a surprise start this afternoon as Theo Walcott has dropped down to the bench. Per Mertesacker is also absent through illness (again) so Gabriel who has just returned himself will partner Koscielny in defence. As expected Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces the injured Aaron Ramsey on the right.

Per Mertesacker and Aaron Ramsey who played in our last two games have been rested and in come Gabriel and Alex Oxlade-chamberlain. Kieran Gibbs has also come in to replace Nacho Monreal at left back so it will be interesting to see if Gibbs has a more withdrawn role today or if he will push on as he usual tries to do. As expected David Ospina has come in for Petr Cech.

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
