This was the line up that got thrashed at antfield 5-1 wow, what can we say, they beat a strong lineup there is no excuse, the midfield offered no protection at all in that game, thanks to ozil, wishere and arteta, probably ox as well and unfortunately we still have the same defensive issues in the midfield, we have improved a little, but it is still there. We have to approach the game with caution, and take our chances, it is going to be tough, we shouldn't get carried away bcos they don't have sturridge and balotelli, i am expecting the high press, lot of fouls to disrupt play, and of the course the main course of counter attack, with sterling looking to break on us each time we are deep in their half.
+1
They were also flying high on confidence when we played them and honestly played one of their best games of the season when they beat us. We also beat them twice last season, though nothing like that 5-1 thrashing
if we have welbeck and alexis upfront, they cant press us to deny the space. That will help and not being sh*t as well.
No more Suarez as well. Apart from Sterling's pace not much to worry about. Plus i think we have a better squad atm than the squad that played them last time. Anfield has never been a place that's overwhelmed us like O.T and Some Bridge.
Peter how is it possible that we have a better squad now than we did then?

The team that went into Anfield was top of the league and the only real notable injuries we had at that stage were Aaron and Theo.

Not only are they both out again (unless Theo makes the bench at the last minute), but we're now missing Koscielny, Ozil, Arteta and Wilshere among others. There's no way that this squad we have at the moment is close to being better.

That being said, I like our chances at Anfield. We're picking up form and aside from Stoke, we've generally played well in recent weeks. Liverpool are at an all time low at the moment.
+2
Sanchez and welbeck add more going forward. With the exception of bac and koscielny who had some injuries that we're forcing bac to cb. Ozil was struggling in big games without players like walcott or ramsey. We're not that much better though cause of the defense. Just more or less the same only stronger upfront with players who will not leave Giroud isolated.
ROFL it's not going to be even remotely the same. Anyone who can't see what Liverpool are lacking compared to last season has rocks in their head. And no, I'm not talking about Suarez.

Watch out for the little kid's Aguero Imitation
Balotelli to miss Sunday's clash with Arsenal after beings handed a one match ban for racial incident.

- Talksport.

Well, he was pretty good at United so I think we're most fortunate to not play against him. On another note Liverpool will either use Sterling up front or Lambert. The problem with Lambert is he's strong in the air so if we can cut off the supply line putting in crosses that would do us a world of good.
+1
Well according to Rodgers, Sterling is as good as Alexis so we best watch out XD
Don't jinx it now, Sterling will now have an amazing game and their goalkeeper will turn into Oliver Kahn.
+3
Glen Johnson will turn into messi in this game, u watch lmao
Sterling is their main threat, though the kid is speedy he's lack of finishing. Overall, their midfield isn't strong. I believe we have more experiences in our midfields as well as forwards. Having Chambers back will be a huge boost.

*I don't want to drop Bellerin, use him at RB and Chambers at CDM.

YungGunner I'm sure Arsene won't start Bellerin at Anfield when he has two fit right backs, and he certainly won't start Chambers in the midfield for the first time. I expect:

Tex
Chambers, Debuchy, Mert, Gibbs
Flamini, Ox
Alexis, Santi, Danny
Giroud

I have a suspicion that Wenger will go with Debuchy at CB even with Chambers available, he played there against Newcastle out of necessity but his experience may be what leads Wenger to using him in the center.

Basically, we have two players who can play RB and CB and another RB in reserve on the bench in Bellerin, so Wenger will have the luxury of being able to use two right backs from the start.
+1
I think Debuchy will play on the right because Chambers lacks a little bit of pace to deal with Sterling if he switches onto the left wing.

Also, Chamberlain still faces a test so if he isn't fit, you could expect Chambers to play there instead. Him against Coquelin, Maitland-Niles, and Zelalem for the CDM spot.
Coquelin would play there if OX isn't fit, chambers has never played there before
I think we will see chambers at cb. Though i would like to see Debuchy there as well. His pace would really help cover mertesacker and deal with sterling's pace more than Chambers.
Mario Balotelli is banned for one BPL match for his "offensive" tweet.

Damn, this is a low blow for us...equal to say a BFG injury. We really needed him fit and facing us in the Liverpool match. Now, Liverpool might actually score on us!!
+1
What tweet?
It was a Super Mario Brothers reference. It said:

"Don't be a racist! Be like Mario. He's an Italian plumber created by Japanese people, who speaks English and looks like a Mexican.

...Jumps like a black man and grabs coins like a Jew."
Wow...that was his tweet!?

Yep. Fine is correct for sure.
Hey Guys! I had a question. How good is this kid Krystian Bielik? Heard we are close to signing him
not even close it's most likely done, he's coming to watch us in the QPR game. The issue remains if he wants to move in january or in the summer but he's on his way.

http://ligapolska.net/wysokie-zarobki-krystiana-bielika-arsenalu/
You speak Polish as well as Japanese, Cloudst?
Oh cool! What's his style of play though? And how soon do you reckon he would be ready for first team football? People are already comparing him to Vieira!
i think (based on his age and ability) he'll be ready in like 6 seasons which is normal for a DM of high quality. idk if he's like Vieira but he is pretty physical for a younger player. I don't see how anyone can say he's like Vieira tbh he's too young to be compared like that and he's much farther away from first team then many of our academy players (mainly maitland-niles). But i think he's a good pick up we're lacking DM's in our academy he has the right mind set and traits to build upon to be our future DM imo.
@footballdoc i communicate with many ppl XD that japanese bit below was meant to say banter but in japan its literal meaning is ridicule (or so i've been told)
Hmm. Good. Thanks for the info bro
Usmanov is loosing money fast might effect his long term future at the club

i would like 855.5mil as well pls.
Don't be so greedy mate. I'll take 850 mil.
+1
i'd even take 855.5 k
Walcott is in contention to face pool on Sunday :)
+1
Probably gonna come on in the last 5mins.
+1
Please only play him for 5 to 10 min Wenger! let him come back gradually...
So who is available to play in the midfield? Just Flamini and ox? With the addition of le coq?

And when is Arteta, Walcott, and possibly Diaby going to return?

:(
Diaby has been in the training photos for weeks now but Wenger never mentions him. My guess is he'll get some time in the second half of the season
ox will have a late test. so only flamini for now. I guess cazorla will play next to him.
I'd imagine Coquelin is the favorite to play next to Flamini if Chamberlain isn't fit. Or Chambers there could be a surprise Wenger move.
I love when they upload these videos

Doesn't that mean ridicule, Cloudst?
^wow Cloudst. What does that say? Didn't realize you spoke Latin!
I think that's Japanese...
