    Arsenal vs Man. City
    Premier League
    Sunday, December 18, 10:00 AM, NBCSN
    City of Manchester Stadium


    Alright, lads. We lost vs Everton, we're all upset about it but let's move on. It was the first loss since opening day and it may not have happened had Mustafi been playing. Overall, playing City at the Etihad will not be easy but they will be missing Aguero, Fernandinho and Gundogan. City is coming off a 2-0 win vs Watford, however, we always seem to do well vs them. They play to our strengths. I don't foresee any changes to the 11 and I definitely think it's strong enough to pull out a win.

    Anyone fancy another 2-0 victory?

    Thanks for taking on the burden, there are many on this board with broad shoulders...

    This should be a very open game that should be fun to watch. Pep will try and go toe to toe with us...should be a frenetic and high-scoring affair.

    Actually I'm wondering if Wenger might revisit last year's successful strategy at Eastlands. Where we sit back and play for the counter. I think their current defense might be particularly vulnerable to our speed down the flanks, or just direct incisive play in general.

    Personnel-wise they seem to be missing more key stars than we are, so that's a good thing too.

    If we wanna stay within striking range of the title, WE NEED THESE 3PTS!

    p.s. Thanks @R9Kevinr9 for stepping up... we're all rootin for ya!

    Honestly m8, I can't be bothered with what type of formation or strategy we go with. Just get 3 points. This is a must win, imo. We had to get 3/4 points out of these two matches. I think we can do the job.

    Also thanks!

    I already have moved on from Tuesday, let's squash these guys!!! COYF'n'G!!!

    Jesus Christ, three matches in just over 7 days, I hope we still have enough left in the tank to maybe scrounge up 3 points in this tilt, I hope we get a break soon so we can get ready for the Boxing Day period where some clubs will be playing anywhere from 3-5 matches in the span of just under 10 days, but I'm hoping we can (most importantly) get through this without any more injuries.

    They are very beatable if we are accurate with our chances. Iwobi needs to start. Theo needs to show up for a change. We can thump them. It's on us to do that. No excuses. COYFGs!

    Phew! Inches from 1-1. This looks like it might be a classic match!

    also, i think this is why either walcott or perez needs to be in the lineup with sanchez starting up front. while he's done well up front, sanchez often drops deep (as he does there) and someone else needs to make those runs and challenge the centrebacks.

    For the record and since nobody posted this, our line-up is:

    Cech
    Nacho -- Koz -- Gab -- Bellerin
    Xhaka -- Coq
    Iwobi -- Ozil -- Theo
    Sanchez

    Arlo White recounting the story about Toure's DUI and how it was accidental drinking. That's such a lame excuse, like he couldn't taste brandy in a Diet Coke! He's obviously just trying to save face amongst the Muslim community. Better to be honest in my book.

    sanchez really needed to let the ball go MUCH earlier on that play instead of dribbling back to the right.
