A much needed week off. The team for me would be:
Fabianski, Zabaleta, Balbuena (if fit?), Diop, Cresswell, Rice, Noble, Snodgrass, Antonio, Anderson, Arnautovic
Subs: Adrian, Masuaku, Ogbonna, Nasri, Diangana, Chicharito (if fit?), Carroll
Injury List: Reid, Fredericks, Sanchez, Lanzini, Wilshere, Yarmolenko.
I’d play Snodgrass in a midfield 3 ahead of Rice and Noble, with Anderson and Antonio out wide of Arnie - rather than 4-4-2 with Antonio leading the line with Arnie.
I’m never confident when playing Arsenal as we probably have the worst record against them than any other club for the past 10 years. We broke a very unsuccessful run in 2015 where we didnt win against them in 15 games, although since then it’s now 7 games (W0 D2 L5) in all competitions.
