Does anyone think it will be different to that? Ayew and PVA (in midfield) probably the closest to being in contention to start.

Looks about right. I worry about the lack of pace in that back 4, with exception of Mitchell.

Kouyate for Cahill otherwise I agree.

Unless we have 'Belief' and 'Ambition' in the side, it doesn't matter who is selected, although the side GF has picked with Kouyate instead of Cahill, looks a decent side.

Mind you if Benteke has regressed again into chasing shadows, we might be better off with Ayew in the side. Not quite sure of the point of signing Bats (especially as we ditched Gallagher to do so), as he can't get in the side, seems lost when he comes on as sub (obviously another player with the confidence drained out of him by Roy)

I expect Arsenal to win comfortably, with everone declaring that Arteta has got them firing again.

4-3-2-1 with Zaha and Eze playing centrally behind Ayew. Attack at pace but on the floor, none of this Benteke hold up play.

Not sure Roy will play eze away against arsenal we will have very little of the ball and have to do a lot of defending and tracking back think he will go pretty defensive
Guaita
Ward Tomkins kouyate Mitchell
Townsend luka MacArthur jr pva

Trying to get the two wide players up with Zaha on the break

I'm not worried about that - they'll spend most of the game on the edge of our own penalty area

Spot on, though benteke concerns me. He’s fallen apart again after the unfortunate red card. He needs to step up or go back to the bench.

The resurgence of Both our next two tough opponents will mean it will be more a question of a sensible approach as in reality we would be very very fortunate to get anything from these games. It will be more a question of stiffling/suffocating them with a strong midfield and catching them on the break, it's not negative but a realistic approach for a club that struggles to score goals when facing 2 inform teams, and aim for getting maybe a result(draw) from one of those games.

Can see Roy looking to PVA to fill the Schlupp gap for these 2 difficult away games.
Would prefer a 4-4-1-1 with Eze behind Zaha but doubt Roy will go there....

Agree, I think the experiment of PvA further forward last night for the last 15/20 was with Schlupps replacement in mind. It’s not the worst idea.

He certainly won’t play Eze in this game.

I really fear for us in these next 2. Both Arsenal and City have hit form just as we play them.

Why would be not play eze? Best player bar wilf. One of the first names on the team sheet imo. PvA is not necessarily good in midfield just because he attacks well from left back.

Would be the first name on mine as well. But against Arsenal and City Roy won’t trust him defensively and he will be on the bench. If we played a better formation that accommodated Eze so we could build the team around him centrally he would start. Not in Roy’s pre-historic 4-4-2 snooze fest.

It was simply the way it was stated for solidity, but it can be shuffled around as Luka could be played on the right and Kouyate central with McCarthy and the versatile McArthur moved over to the left.

going to be interesting to see which striker partners Wilf up front, none of them have really been impressive this season. Maybe it will be Ayew as he played the best out of them last night

It’s such a shame but you’re probably right.

Everyone knows Arsenal’s defence is suspect at times. If we play with wilf as our only threat then I can’t see us getting much out of the game.
