Wolves vs Arsenal, Match Day Live

As promised, I’ve made it for another away day “match day live”… and we’ve got team news today, and we’ve got some interesting team news. Arsene has rested Song and is playing Ramsey in the defensive central midfield position. News was that Song wasn’t going to be on the bench either, but I’m yet to know why – rumour was that Eastmond was going to join the first team for today’s game, but it looks like Song has recovered.

Nasri and Rosicky both start on the bench and the front three today is Arshavin, Van Persie and Eduardo…

Almunia

Sagna – Gallas – Vermaelen – Gibbs

Ramsey – Diaby

Arshavin – Cesc – Eduardo

Van Persie

With a bench of Mannone, Eboue, Silvestre, Senderos, Song, Nasri and Rosicky.

Over to the comments… come on you Gooners!

    The guys on Fox Sports are waxing lyrical about our chances today…

    Today’s Arsenal mascot was only about 1 foot shorter than Cesc!! LOL!

    It’s been pretty much all wolves at the moment, with it being a very physical and balls in the air. Gallas was carded for his first challenge and he got the ball, so the ref has been very harsh. Gibbs has had a clearance off the line earlier on, but it’s a tough one so far!

  • Berth

    lol dev. but why ramsey

  • devday

    Diaby off with an ankle injury – Song on – may be a good idea anyway to stem the Wolves attack!

    1-0! Eduardo!

  • devday

    GOAL!! Eduardo scores to make it 1-0 to the Arsenal. He didn’t really celebrate, so maybe because he didn’t intend to knock it in, another assist for Cesc, but this goal is totally against the run of play!

  • wills

    Looks like Ramsey was playing in Song’s DM role before Diaby went off.

    Was a good chance to see how he did before the ACN but Song looks like he’ll be able to stifle the Wolves attack a little better.

  • wills

    2-0, Eduardo again!

  • devday

    2-0 to Arsenal, an incisive break sees Ramsey and Eduardo against one defender, Ramsey passes to Eduardo, who lobs the keeper inadvertently… maybe an own goal? Apparently the first one was an og too…

  • wills

    3-0, Captain Fantastic!

  • devday

    Now that’s what I call a goal, such an amazing counter attack, with some really sublime passing sees us go 3-0 up, Cesc with the goal after some excellent build up!

    Wham, Bam, Thank you Wolves!
    3-0 to the good.

  • devday

    4-0…. Arshavin strikes from the edge of the area!

  • debs

    I wonder which match will be last on MOTD! Probably ours, because it’s been so comfortable! Awesome stuff from us though! :-)

  • sam

    No clean sheet. Pitty.

    Brilliant result. I can’t say anything more. Everyone showed how good they were today, Showed how much they wanted to win the game.

  • Fabrez

    Football of the highest quality. I was confident but also thinking this game could be a banana skin…cold night…away game…but our superiority showed. Shame Edu’s effort was an own goal…brilliant from him. Good stuff all round. What a goal average! C’mon u Gunners!!
