Are you ready…?
I said… Are you ready??
It’s back – the Premiership is back and today we take on Sunderland at their ground in what we will a tough game without a doubt. With Kenwyne Jones suspended and Cattermole injured, it is actually a decent time to play Steve Bruce’s team. In the pre match press conference, Arsene expressed concern over both Gallas and Sagna who both played extra time on time on Wednesday. Arsene cited the midweek Champions League and of course next weekend’s big game as reasons to rest the two French Internationals.
Personally, with Gibbs and Clichy both out, I would prefer not to change two other players in our back four. Just imagine if Arsene rests Gallas and Sagna, it’ll be Eboue – Senderos – Vermaelen – Silvestre…. surely that’s too much of a change?
Arsene revealed yesterday that Theo Walcott is back in the squad but I don’t expect him to play from the start… I hope to watch the game on a stream today so should be able to give you running commentary via the comments as usual, but for the moment, here’s my estimated team line up….
Sagna – Gallas – Vermaelen – Silvestre
Ramsey – Song
Nasri – Cesc – Rosicky
The bench should see Mannone, Senderos, Eboue, Denilson, Walcott, Arshavin, Vela
I think… The proper team news will be posted in the comments as soon as I’ve got it… it’s exciting, if we win, we’ll close the gap on Chelsea and maybe break away from United… whatever happens in the other games, if we want to win the title, it’s games like this that we have to win!
Come on you Gooners!!! Over to the comments now…
