Just a quick blog to say Happy December! It’s not been the best November and December so far, but I really think it’ll change today and we’ll win for the first time since I can remember.
There is lot of noise about Walcott and Sagna and their contracts and both are out injured today. With the return of Rosicky, we could see a slightly different line up today, or let’s hope we do, I’d prefer Gervinho on the bench today and Giroud in the starting line up…
Jenkinson – Mertersacker – Vermaelen (c) – Gibbs
Arteta – Wilshere
Oxlade – Rosicky – Cazorla
With Podolski out with a strain or hamstring injury (depending on what you read)…. the above line up has a decent balance of aggression and skill. Gervinho, Arshavin and Chamakh on the bench if things go terribly wrong.
I’ll be back after the game with a bigger blog and hopefully I’ll be talking about our great win and excellent performance…!
