10 Reasons why we will beat Everton + my starting 11


1) The Germans are back, I don’t expect all of them to play 90mins but they could all get a run out of some kind today.

2) Diaby and Sanogo are fit, fit for what tho is the question.

3) Arteta is also missing, which means the end of the failed Arteta/Ramsey/Wilshere midfield 3 experiment.

4) The Ox and Campbell are fully fit and raring to go !

5) We can’t do much worse than than we did in this fixture last season when we got trounced 3-0

6) Since our first meeting in 1905 we have beaten Everton 99 times and they have only beaten us once in the last fifteen matches  (bbc sport)

7) Debuchy, yes its early to really be able to comment but he does look like hes slotted in effortlessly.

8) Everton are without their great English hope Ross Barkley.

9) Alexis, all the style all the tricks, he’s been wasted on the right without nobody on the end of his work.

10) Wenger Knows he must either sign a Striker, Def Mid and Cen Back or its round holes and square pegs again this season.

My Starting 11 (4-3-3) Chesney – Debuchy, Kos, BFG, Monreal – Flamini, Ramsey, Wilshere – Ox, Alexis, Campbell




10 reasons why we will beat Man City Saturday + First XI

1..Our league form has been superb recently, our current performances and momentum should be enough for the team to put in another good showing against City

2..City have some goalkeeper unrest at the moment and they are not sure who is their number one ‘keeper at the moment, lets test this out by creating some proper chances

3..We beat them Pre season, yes its only a friendly but we did it once, we can do it again!

4..We should have beat them last season, Gervinho had a glorious chance to put us in front and didn’t take it, we are due a win there

5..We have conceded only 5 goals away all season, winning 5 of 7, we drew against West Brom and lost against United

6..Sagna, the best right back in the league has had a break and sat out against Hull, Everton and Napoli. He should, I hope, be ready to go again and put in a top performance against City

7..Our away support is the best in the land and will be non stop singing to support the team throughout the game

8..Mesut Ozil is going to be putting a massive performance soon, we haven’t seen the best of him yet and I cant help but think he will take over a game for us, could this be the one?

9..Theo Walcott is back in the side, his pace can frighten the best of teams, especially with our creative midfield talent trying to pick his runs out.

10..We got through the Champions League Group of death, yes we lost but we are through, that should give them a lift and aim to win the next game.

Likely starting XI – Chesney, Sagna, Per, Kos, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Jack, Ozil, Theo, Giroud.

10 Reasons why we will beat Napoli to top the group + starting XI

1.. Everton was a tough game, we wont have many like that this season, Napoli have to come out for a big win, counter attacking will suit us.

2.. No fresh injuries since our last game, the bench will also look pretty strong.

3.. The home crowd will try to unease our players but we are made of harder stuff these days.

4.. We always make the last 16, this year will be no different. Dortmund need to win and we need to lose 0-3 for us to go out.

5.. Napoli got stuffed at home to Udinese at the weekend and are sitting 3rd in there league, played 15, won 10, drawn 2 lost 3 and are 8 points off leaders Juve

6.. Napoli have shipped in 9 goals in the 5 games so far in the Champions League, we have let in just 3.

7.. Wenger (yes I am giving him some credit) has done well recently in rotating the squad. This game is perfect for Flamini with his experience in Italy, I hope he starts him.

8.. Theo his pace will scare the hell out of them, he should be a must starter.

9.. Let’s hope Wenger and the team have learnt from past experiences, we must finish top of the group to avoid a tricky game next round.

10… Wenger knows. Get this game out the way and his great run of getting out of the group stages continues, 90mins of hard work and a team up for it is all that’s needed.

Likely starting XI – Chesney, Jenks, Per, Kos, Gibbs, flamini, Ramsey, Rosicky, Ozil, Theo, Giroud.
