Sounds crazy, but I think Nasri has done enough to start. Really liked the look of him linking up with Arnautovic, lots of little one touch play and he will be up for it against Arsenal too. Add Anderson to the mix with Noble and Rice providing some stability behind them and Antonio asking a few questions with pace and power on the other side, plus getting on the end of crosses.

It could be great to watch...

Any chance Balbuena will be back?? Ogbonna in for him if not.

I like the look of that Sutts, although Nasri/snod is a decision to be made

Can't see a win against this lot, however I'd larve it if Nasri scored the winning goal for us

~I don't get the pessimism for this game. Arsenal are currently a very similar standard to us. Good in attack, clueless in defence. Could be any result, 5-2, 1-6 4-4, 0-0. Really don't have a clue :?

If we start well and fast we will win. we don't seem to start well which is a worry especially against a team like this.

I like that but seems harsh on Snodgrass to drop him. Will Arnie be fit?

I think Arsenal are a big better than us, as evidenced by our comparative league positions.

With everyone fully fit, maybe we'd be closer to them, but with West Ham being West Ham that's always a pipe dream, and often a big reason why we never get close to the top.

It promises to be a really entertaining game, if nothing else knowing how the teo managers like to approach the game. I'd be amazed if it remained 0-0.

I don't think anyone could really complain too much if they were bombed considering the Burnley game was followed by a very poor show against Brighton (until Noble and Antonio came on).

Going even further back, we played well at Southampton but were poor at home to Watford too.

Snodgrass is a wide man, he is not better than Anderson and for me Antonio earned himself a start by coming on and making an impact against Brighton.

He's been training for some time, only thing he lacks is match practice. If he misses this then he won't be ready for the game after, and so on.

Can I just say that I have a bit of a clue about this one......it can only go one way!

I haven't a clue which way though.

We need to be clinical in this game, as neither team can defend so it will come down to who takes their chances.

I can see both defences getting utterly terrorised all game.....should be a good watch though no matter the result.
