i would go with this
back to 4141
hope Hector is fit enough
need his forward runs +Giroud's presence both huge factors to unlock them

then if we get result here[clean sheet crucial] unleash Welbz/Theo in 2nd leg Twisted Evil

Really looking forward this game. We must finish them off at home. Dont want a 1-1 or 2-1 win.
Clean sheet is a must, if we dont win at home. Laughing :facepalm:

Lets make a statement at home by beating Wengers first love. Wink

Let's not be under any delusion that this is an easy game. Fwiw Monaco play exactly the kind of football that we dislike playing against in the last few years. Even though we seem to be developing a new Achilles now

I know they are a good team, but that's no excuse for us. We are at home and must win.

Koscielny: “We need to be focused on this. We respect this team but we need to play our game and that’s why we can win.
Gibbs: "We analyse the teams very thoroughly and it as a special competition to be involved in. We want to do well for him [SirAW

In any case, Monaco are brilliant defensively. They will be hard to break and they will counter at every opportunity. Basically any PL side but better.

We need fast players on the wing so I hope Gibbs and Bellerin start at fullback. Walcott-Giroud-Sanchez with Ozil-Cazorla-Coquelin would be a good team but Arsene might think that's too attack heavy and start Welbeck instead. We'll see

welbeck doesn't even defend that well though, he's defensive contribution on the flanks is overrated. @spurs was a perfect example, bellerin was left alone all game.

I think Welbz offers more overall than Theo - his contribution is swept under the carpet because he is not scoring.. Walcott, on the other hand, is doing nothing apart from the fact that he is among our most clinical strikers..

He had some 10 touches in 70 minutes the last game he played, so I wasn't surprised that he was replaced by Welbeck..

Ok now with stats. Here's what I was referring to:

Another thing for the manager to ponder is the performance of Theo Walcott. On the very surface you look at his goals to games ratio since he came back and last night was his third goal in three starts. Yet look a bit deeper and there are concerns. This was the sum total of his passing game last night in the 72+ minutes he was on the pitch:



He attempted just 9 passes and completed only 6 of those. He had fewer touches of the ball in all that time than Giroud did despite the Frenchman playing 50 minutes less (thanks to @JongsmaJongsma for that stat). It speaks to a player who isn’t involved enough. He was selected on the right hand side last night, but his trick of drifting into the centre into positions where he can’t get the ball – or where it’s not sensible for other players to give it to him – means he barely features.

He fluffed a great chance in the opening minutes, was on hand to tuck away the rebound very smartly indeed, but aside from that he was a complete passenger. I don’t think it’s overly-critical to expect more from a player. I get he’s not the most technical or skillful and that his main strengths are getting in behind and finishing, but on nights like last night he becomes very difficult to carry. If Mesut Ozil had been as uninvolved last night, the Daily Mail would have had him deported.

On a recent Arsecast I discussed Walcott and Podolski with James, and the similarities are obvious. They’re both players whose all-round contribution is minimal but whose finishing ability means they’ll always get you goals. I believe Arsene Wenger realised he couldn’t have two of them in his squad, hence Podolski’s departure, but surely there comes a time when you either have to ask for more from Walcott, accept that this is the price of having him in the side or think about his long-term future.

Like I said before, Arsene plays Welbeck to provide balance.

Theo also needs to be eased in.

I doubt there is anything wrong with Theo. It makes no sense since Wellbeck cannot score a goal to save his life, I think that it leaves the team unbalanced and forces Alexis to do to much.

+1
I really don't give 2 shits about how good their defence is. We need to take at least a two goal lead into the 2nd leg. Would be great if we keep a clean sheet tonight.

Was hoping Theo would start, but oh well that team is good enough. Alexis needs to get back to beast mode.

COME ON ARSENAL!!!!!!!!!
