I know this will never happen but i'd love for us to try something like the formation below. What's at stake here, top 4? Don't make me laugh. Happy with Özil starting as a number 10, but to me the guy hasn't looked match fit in recent weeks at all. Think he could use a breather. Instead go with Alexis as a false nine which he has pretty much been his role in the last couple of months.

Cech

     Holding   Gabriel    Koscielny
 
      Bellerín           Coquelin       Xhaka              Gibbs  
 
Alexis
Walcott                    Perez


Alternatively we could go with Monreal as LCB with Gabriel moving RCB and Koscielny playing in the middle as a modern sweeper, similar to Bonucci at Juventus and Luiz at Chelsea.

This is the kind of line-up I would expect against City, not West Brom. I also don't believe Ozil is tired, just poor. Sanchez is the player who could do with a rest.

I definitely agree with Gabriel playing as a RCB as I don't trust Bellerin and Holding. Would also drop Walcott maybe and play with Perez/Giroud as a striker with Alexis and Iwobi/Ozil playing behind him (3-4-2-1). Having Alexis as the only one capable of running with the ball or even create chances will limit us going forward.

Not going to be an easy one, this. West Brom have been tidy this season and Pulis would love to stick the knife in to us after back-to-back losses.

Until Chelsea drop some points I'm not that fussed anymore.

If this is how our season unravels ....... what a fkin waste, just one more month of hope to our usual Nov dismantling.

Can't wait for Wenger to leave.

Give the big names a chance to get their form back but give the likes of Perez & Gibbs a game to nail their place
