10 reasons why we will beat Monaco + Starting 11

1) Whilst Arsenal have not qualified for the Champions League Quarter Final in either of the last 4 seasons, Monaco have not made the Quarter Final since 2003/04

2) Having sold James to Real Madrid and loaned Falcao to Manchester United, Monaco’s best players are 36 year old Ricardo Carvalho & 34 year old Dimitar Berbatov. And Carvalho is injured

3) Despite topping their group, Monaco scored just 4 goals in the 6 games

4) Their lack of goals also spreads to Ligue 1 where, despite being 4th, have only scored more goals than 3 other sides

5) There top scorer is the aforementioned Berbatov, with 7 goals in 25 games. Arsenal have 3 player who have scored more

6) With 8 goals in his last 11 games, Giroud is on fire (That is also more goals in his last 11 games than Berbatov has this season)

7) Arsenal’s home Champions League record this season is P 4 W 3 D 1 F 10 A 4

8) Meanwhile, Monaco’s away form is P 3 W 1 D 1 L 1 F 1 A 1

9) With Monaco’s inability to attack, Arsenal can safely continue with playing Cazorla, Ozil, Sanchez, Welbeck & Giroud

10) Over 2 legs, Arsenal have a 100% record against French teams

Probable line up: Ospina, Bellerin, Koscielny, Metersacker, Gibbs, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ozil, Welbeck, Giroud Sanchez
