We have our first choice back four for the FIRST time this season. That is worth putting in caps if you ask me. Either Rosicky or Cazorla will play wide left in attack. Interested to see how Calum does in midfield. A good performance from him could be make Arsene reconsider buying in that position... I can feel the trembling from all the way over here.

The biggest news is that Mathieu Debuchy is back in the side after his long term injury, the news is even better when you consider that Laurent Koscielny is being rested tomorrow so he can deal with the busy Christmas schedule. Alexis Sanchez has been knocked on the head unconscious and left at the training ground so he doesn't run onto the plane. He won't be happy when he wakes up. As we are hit with midfield injuries, there isn't a great deal Arsene can do. Such a shame for someone like Tomas Rosicky who has been twiddling his fingers on the bench all season and now he can play, he can't because like half of our team, he's crocked.

Arsene has made a couple of changes for the match away at Stoke. Laurent Koscielny has been rested due to the ongoing achillies problem. Due to Monreal being out, Arsene's only option was to bring in Hector Bellerin and move Calum Chambers alongside big Per Mertesacker. I thought Danny Welbeck would be kept in this one due to his height but he is rested to the bench following a couple games where he hasn't been at his sharpest. So Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keeps his place and Oliver Giroud starts as centre forward. Alexis Sanchez keeps his place in the team.

Wow, didn't see that one coming. Arsene has rotated the team today but the big surprise is the selection of both Danny Welbeck and Oliver Giroud. It's even more of a surprise given that Alexis is one of the wide players. You'd imagine that Aaron Ramsey will be playing a rather disciplined role deeper today. Especially as we don't have the distribution of Mikel Arteta available. Both Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been rested to the bench.

    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
