Can't we just not turn up and take a 3-0 defeat? It's getting boring kick starting everyone's season.

Result on this game depends on our mindset.

If Wenger is serious about going for the title then this is a guaranteed loss

If he sees this as a match against a top 4 rival then we can win this

lol walcott not in peoples starting 11.Yet suppose to start perez with poor epl experience give it a rest man. Walcotts a big game player check the record. Walcotts name is on the score sheet often in big games. He'll be starting. Especiailluy against a team that plays high line and is suspect at the back its a no brainer.

Thats the difference with you dumbass haters.You guys get so in your feelings and nonsensical personal rage. Ignore all facts and realitys. Walcotts starting.

As for this game.Wengers decision making will probably f**k us.Its an open game.Whoever takes their chances and producess individual brillances wins this. Coq does'nt sure up anything in midfield.Whoever is partnered in midfield we are vunerable to attacks. .Zero difference who's in there what duo combination.We Just get attacked period.I guess we was trying to set up as counter attack team with xhaka,coq,walcott,ox but it comes with a few negatives. Everton were'nt even pressing us and we still couldnt string simple combination passes & register shots on their goal in first half.

The difference of football played against basel,westham,everton is alot.Quality of play gone down after basel game. But man this an open game.Literally down to the managers making the right picks. Nothing else. All on managers suspect formation ,player choices lol.

Wow .... just Wow .... who is this Walcott you name?

We have a Walcott but he's not 'on the score sheet often in big games' or indeed many games for that matter ... he's played 384 games for his 100 career goals that's OK but hardly 'often' ... he's played against Man City 15 times scoring just 3 goals, and 2 of those were in the 6-3 defeat in 2013 ... with City playing overlapping FB's you need a winger who can also help out his defence ... our Walcott shouldn't be within a million miles of our starting line up ...

You might have a short memory but just a week ago a piss-poor Leicester embarrassed City, how? By playing two defensive lines of 4 and 5 and looking for a player to get behind the defence, basic stuff but it worked ... if you're suggesting dropping Sanchez and playing Theo as the one man up front (you'd be an idiot) but that's the only line-up that would play to his strength ...

But if you're suggesting our midfield should go toe-to-toe with theirs and have Walcott as one of those midfield players? then we will get cuffed ....

Open games CITY WIN Stoke, West ham, B'mouth, Swansea, even Barca, all teams who can't play a tight defence .... tight game with City being pressed for space and having limited chances ... Spuds, Leicester, Chelski ... then CITY LOSE .... and yet you want to play an open game? let's hope Arsene is a bit more savvy ... but I doubt it ....

City hasn't always been a big game...

His record in big games is pretty good. He starts this without doubt.

I know you don't like him for whatever reason and that's your agenda but let's not make things up shall we?
