AWAY TO ARSENAL.....

Post  SaintMike on Mon 01 Dec 2014, 1:30 pm

Not a lot of time for RK to put things right, but any chance of a better result tis time?


I can see us putting up much more of a fight......but losing again! It would be nice to spring a surprise, maybe our losing Sunday will give us more of a chance as Arsenal may think it will be a bit easier for them....had we beaten Man City, Arsenal would have given their all.

Losing Schneiderlin will be a big miss and have to hope Cork is fit. Would seriously consider dropping Mane to the bench and possibly Tadic. going with Davis, Cork, Wanayma and Reed in midfield Long and Pelle up front. More conventional line up but key would be to get both Clyne and Bertrand forward to provide some width , crosses for Pelle and Long to pick up the knock downs. Sounds a bit basic but we need a solid display, Could probably start Tadic as arsenal are not as physical as City but don't think Mane should be starting any game. Hope Yohsida and Mayuka if on the bench stay there.

I like your ideas Matty but don't think RK will change things too much.

What worries me most is that as RK seems to have been happy with Toby's performance in midfield he will keep him there and put Yoshida with Fonte in defence. Long will probably replace Mane but I don't think there will be many other changes.

Well, a better performance but another defeat.   I don't think a draw would have been an unfair result.

The defence looked strong (even Yoshida when he came on after Cork injured) and I am sure it must have been Forster's best match for us.

Worrying that both Cork and Toby went off injured.


FORSTER 9
CLYNE 8
TOBY 8
FONTE 8
BERTRAND 7
WANYAMA 8
CORK 7
DAVIS 6
TADIC 6
LONG 7
PELLE 7

YOSHIDA 8
MANE 6
MAYUKA 5

a better performance but then think Arsenal are some way behind City and Chelsea but injuries are really hurting now. Shame JWP is still injured, really annoys me as was because of a stupid foul he committed so self imposed unlike Corkie who was badly fouled. Now out for 6 weeks about time PL clamped down and banned players who commit fouls to suspend them for a similar time.
