    Win, play Pulisic if he's healthy. Just goddamn win.

    And why does it feel like we just played Arse yesterday?

    Cuz we did play them like last month.

    It's at home, so not sure this is good news. Hopefully after Newcastle, the lads will be up for this London derby.

    I think Pulisic is still injured.

    Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Christensen, Emerson, Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Abraham

    Subs: Caballero, Pedro, Barkley, Alonso, Zouma, Mount, Batshuayi

    Pulisic still injured. Is Tomori, as well? Christensen remains. Mount dropped after shitshow against Newcastle.

    Again - no Auba for Arsenal tonight.

    think that's our strongest lineup given the circumstances.

    How are we doing? Just got out of meetings. 1-0 and a man up. Are we going for the kill?

    Kepa did badly with that and probably should have knocked it out long and quick, but out Defenders should not have put him in that spot, and try to be to cute too often deep in our box, (the earlier gasp near giveaway was all on him though)

    naw looked sharp before sideshow sent off but now reverted to no clue how to breakdown a side playing deep in numbers

    I think that he puts the defenders under pressure more than they do to him.

    He seems to hesitate and wait until the defenders are marked before he casually pssses the ball to them.

    When the opposition have the ball his first instinct is to retreat onto his line

    we've been good at creating pressure, keeping them pinned in, intensity is there, getting to byline, but we just aren't actually creating good chances. half chances mostly. arsenal have had some good blocks too.

    also, to be fair, i think i just heard arsenal haven't had a shot yet, but we've had to take a couple of yellows to stop counters for that to happen.
