Or it could still be Xhaka at LB with Smith Rowe playing the Ceballos role.

Christ Arteta is one stubborn ****.

Just can’t accept when he’s made a mistake. Forget what I said earlier, can see Xhaka costing us the tie tbh if he’s at LB again.

Certainly not the lineup I would have gone with given who we have on the bench. I think us going through during normal time will hinge on esr and odegaard having their best game of their lives. Otherwise I can easily see this going to extra time or, something I don’t even want to imagine, the worst case scenario.

Arteta has made this game unnecessarily difficult for himself IMO and I hope we fans don’t have to pay the ultimate price because I know Arteta won’t
Leno
(Runarsson/Macey)
Bellerin Saliba Gabriel Tierney
(Cedric/Niles) (Holding/Mustafi) (Mari/Sokratis) (Kolasinac/Bola)
Xhaka

Partey —- Ceballos
(Torreira/Matteo) --- (Ozil/Willock)
Pepe -------------------- Auba(c)
(Willian/ESR) -------------------- (Saka/Nelson)
Lacazette
(Martinelli/Nketiah)

I'm looking at the team sheet and have no idea what formation we're playing, not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing?

Another experiment on the seasons biggest night.

Lets hope it pays off better than last week

They're guessing. None of them predicted Xhaka at LB when we lost Tierney to injury and none of them had ESR playing the false 9 last week. They had Pepe down as the striker instead.

Why is CB Gabriel on the bench? He was benched in the last leg too. Injured?
