Ludogorets Vs Arsenal [Champions League M4]

Post by RealGunner on Mon Oct 31, 2016 5:59 pm



Ludogorets Vs Arsenal
1st November 19:45BST
Ludogorets Arena


We play Ludogorets again but this time it's away. Despite beating them 6-0, it wasn't exactly a true reflection of the game. And at home Ludogorets are a lot trickier. Still we should be favourites and should beat them but we will have to work harder for it this time around and not make any mistakes which we did at home. We got away then but it won't happen again.

Team should be interesting considering we have Tottenham on Sunday.

Can definitely see Xhaka come in. But Ramsey? Arsene said he will have to see.

Wenger confirms Bellerin, Monreal, Walcott & Cazorla all left out of #afc squad to face Ludogorets. Xhaka available.

No idea what happened to Bellerin but I hope it's just rest. Walcott hopefully is back for Sunday and same with Cazorla.

Might see this team

----------------------------Ospina------------------------------
Jenkinson---------Mustafi----------Koscielny----------Gibbs
--------------Xhaka------------Coquelin-----------------------
Oxlade----------------Ozil--------------------------Iwobi
---------------------Giroud--------------------------------

Most likely Sanchez will start but I rather rest him.

Seems we're picking up a number of niggly injuries at a bad time.

We should have enough to win the game but it's one of those where you can easily see us having an off night, especially with changes to the team.

A win crucial, of course, because it'll secure qualification and give us the opportunity to win the group against PSG on the next matchday.

I hope that team isn't foreshadowing Ramsey and Giroud walking back into the starting eleven.

I'm wondering if Ozil and Alexis have a no rest clause in their contracts or something. Laughing

Dunno why we play such a strong team against *bleep* Ludogorets.

At least Tottenham will play a strong team too tomorrow because they actually need to.

I am inclined to agree with Wenger that Ox's best position is probably CM. He should be nowhere near the opposition goal with his finishing skills.

Özil makes great runs behind this season.

Such an amazing player to watch.

Also, he's slowly completing his Bergkamp transformation Proud

Now, sign dat thing Mesut abi please!!

Far from perfect, but a win and we can move on to the NLD now.

I'd understand Giroud. 3 goals in 2 games is nothing to scoff at. Ramsey, on the other hand, looks rusty

That was a very undisciplined performance. The goals we conceded were extremely sloppy - Ospina was rooted to his line for the first, Gibbs' attempt at stopping Cafu during the second was pathetic as was Koscielny and Mustafi letting the striker in between them (not the first time that's happened this season either).

Then there were the numerous fouls and yellow cards, mostly from tackling from the wrong side because we were caught with too many players up the pitch. Xhaka could have easily seen red.

Thankfully Ludogorets suck defensively as well. Even with a two goal advantage we were never out the game and the quality we had in the final third paid off. Ozi's winner was special.

That's qualification out the way now. Just need to beat PSG next to win the group. In the mean time we really need to tighten up our defence for the big games that are coming up.

Hopefully Monreal's legs are back after this extended break. And I really don't want to see Jenkinson ever again at RB.

Mustafi was a bit shit tonight.

This is why Arsene hates rotating. Team never performs well with so many tactical changes.

Expecting the usual 11 against Spurs

Would you rather see Debuchy if/when Bellerin doesn't play? Or are you putting your eggs a tad early in the Maitland-Niles basket, who btw should be a CM now according to Wenger?

The difference in quality between our 1st team fullbacks and our 2nd team is slightly concerning

Jenkinson can be excused a bit since he's just coming back from injury and finding match fitness again. Gibbs, though, has to be doing a lot better if he wants to keep his place. Cafu turned him inside-out with very basic skill.

Then again, I could see Monreal getting beat there, too. Left back is an area we could do with strengthening.

In more positive news, Ozil's goal has men questioning their sexuality on reddit:

https://www.reddit.com/r/soccer/comments/5alv54/%C3%B6zil_scores_vs_ludogorez_23/?st=iv01fsqa&sh=45746060

With the runs he's making he could actually score more than he currently is with better finishing. But the technique behind his goals this season has been outstanding.
