The review of recent events, and the league table for 2015 to date appears in the first part of the Southampton Arsenal review. The referee preview also is here.
Now moving on…
The team is most likely to be
Campbell Ozil Walcott
Monreal Koscielny Mertersacker Bellerin
In fact pretty much the same as before.
The seven players lazing on the mud banks of the Solent could be Ospina, Chambers, Gibbs, Gabriel, Iwobi, Reine-Adelaide, Oxlade-Chamberlain
Debuchy wasn’t on the beach for the Man City game, so I wonder if there is an unglueable split between him and the boss and we will see him sold. There is also a little whisper doing the rounds that Glen Kamara is ready to sit alongside our regulars Iwobi and Reine-Adelaide. The fact that these two are there game after game, shows just how much Mr Wenger believes in them: Kamara could be joining the elite bunch.
He’s a Finland under 21 international and the only time we’ve seen him is in the Sheffield Wednesday game, after which the manager was scathing about the youngsters. But maybe that was their challenge: now show me what you can do, and maybe Kamara is doing just that. He is also a defensive midfielder… now wouldn’t that be something – to have discovered another Coquelin.
