The only players to play in both games for the full 90 minutes were Per Mertesacker and Aaron Ramsey but Arsène has somewhat of a problem. Both Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini will miss tonight's game with injury and I think in an ideal world, Arsène would want to give Francis Coquelin a few extra days off and not risk his knee so even though Ramsey played in both games, I wouldn't be surprised if we continued with Ramsey in the middle alongside Santi. That would open a door for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to start down our right against the same opposition in which he scored his first Champions League goal.

It's amazing what a volley at the lane can do for you. Mathieu Flamini has jumped up the pecking order and keeps his place in the team ahead of Mikel Arteta as Francis Coquelin is still short following a knee injury. Gabriel's one game suspension has given Per Mertesacker the chance to win his shirt back after sickness so he will partner Laurent Koscielny at the heart of the defence. The rest of the team that were cheated at Stamford Bridge come back into the side which means Theo Walcott reclaims his position leading the line.

Arsène Wenger said that Francis Coquelin will not be available for today so it will be interesting to see what Arsène does in that area. Mikel Arteta would have been next in line before Wednesday but Mathieu Flamini's match winning performance may have changed the managers mind. The decision may not just be about the mindset of the players but Leicester have quick players who may well be used on the break against us, for all of Arteta's quality, his ability to get across the pitch wasn't his strength a few years back, let alone now so Mathieu Flamini may be the better option in that regard at least

Regardless our form in recent matches and regardless of our opponents we are playing in a tournament that has always and will always be the last in a list of priorities. We played on Saturday 12th September against Stoke City then four days later we faced Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia. Arsène had made a few changes in that game because we only had three days before we had to play Chelsea which was also away from home. Not only all of that but we had to pla

The victory in the Community shield was very enjoyable, the goal from Ox was top quality and the way we shut them out was classy and professional but in the middle of all the post much high fiving I found myself wishing it was at Stamford Bridge because this is where it matters. Unfortunately Jose Mourinho will probably be drumming that into his players heads. They are fully aware that victory against us will more than likely kick start their season and surely if you are a good human being, you cannot want that. We have all been enjoying and smirking at the Special ones, special results of late. That continuing is just a good thing for the rest of the world but as we know, good things don't always happen and we would be beyond foolish to expect them to approach this game any

Champions League football returns for another year, it is quite amazing how we take it for granted these days such is the consistency of our participation in this competition. But participation is not what Arsène Wenger wants I imagine, he wants to win the one competition that has escaped his grasp so far. But this is no Mickey mouse competition and there is a reason why only a handful of clubs have a strangle hold over the trophies for the most part. But regardless of the odds, Arsène Wenger will want his squad to give it there best shot and that starts in Croatia against Dinamo Zagreb who are undefeated in 41 games, that is a hell of a lot of games. Maybe we can end that by kicking the Zagreb players all over the pitch, pulling their forward down when he is running through on goal

 Theo and Giroud on the pitch at once gives us a better chances of scoring, plus they have always seemed to compliment each other pretty well whenever they have played together. The biggest change for me would be in midfield, I would start either Mikel Arteta or Santi Cazorla as our deepest option which I know is almost blasphemy in the eyes of some. I am just not sure whether tough tackling, hard as nails 'DMS' are needed in every single home game. In a game where our build up play could be more of a determining factor to the result than a battling in midfielder, I wonder if one of the Spaniards dictating from deep which would allow Ramsey

    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
