Would love to see a 4-3-3.

But I'd swap Saka as LB instead of Xhaka. Shift Martinelli to LW and start Auba as ST.

Saka, ESR and Martinelli down that left could cause chaos for the opposition.


Have to agree on the formation.

I'm not with this 4-2-3-1 any more.

Its 4 tiers instead of 3 gives Arteta too much license to play backwards, backwards, sideways, sideways.

Also takes us way too long to transition, a 4-3-3 has 3 banks of players meaning more cut and thrust to our game from back to front, something we're sorely lacking in.

4-4-2 for me or 5-3-2, given the players we have.
No matter how bad it gets, at least we don't have to put up with Wenger anymore

Saka and ESR starting should be enough to win this.

I may actually end up watching this game after all - The Masters is so boring today.
Good back up if the golf doesn't get better.
