PNE Vs Arsenal
Saturday 17:30 BST

We should beat them. Nothing else much to say really.

Possible team v Preston

Ospina; Niles, Holding, Gabriel, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey; Reine-Adelaide, Iwobi, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Giroud.

Lucas trained, so it seems he'll be involved. Given our injuries, I hope we play:

Ospina; Gabriel, Mustafi, Holding, Monreal; Niles, Ramsey; Lucas, Iwobi, Chamberlain; Giroud

Mustafi needs the game time after his injury, and we have to take extra care that neither Ramsey nor Xhaka get injured or suspended now. Playing them both in a potentially physical cup tie would make me nervous. Xhaka's been playing a lot recently and Ramsey needs the games, so I'd go with Ramsey.

Preston are having a decent season and are strong on set-piece. It could be a more competitive game than some think.

Hope we see Welbeck return tomorrow.

Ospina; Niles, Mustafi, Gabriel, Monreal; Xhaka, Ramsey; Lucas, Iwobi, Chamberlain; Giroud

Martinez, Holding, Jenkinson, Dasilva, Willock, Jeff, Welbeck


So we're going to take a chance on our only two available CMs in a cup match. Seems only Koscielny, Bellerin, Ozil and Alexis are allowed to be rotated.

This will be a bit challenging hmm

Jenkinson can't even get a game in front of Maitland Niles, it looks like it's curtains for the poor lad Laughing

The manner in which we let Mcgeady walk through there, shocking defending.

A little too timid so far, Xhaka needs to start getting on the ball a bit more.

This Gabriel and Mustaphi's partnership, no leadership whatsoever. We would have been better off with Holding on the pitch.

This is so depressing.
How long is it going to take to get out of this dip shit form.

Our midfield is laughable. Ramsey needs to gooooooo.
Xhaka is the biggest wasteman.

Well, that was atrocious. We somehow defended worse than we did against Bournemouth. Niles struggled and he's allowed to, but Mustafi, Gabriel, Monreal - all experienced, first choice players, played like chumps against average Championship strikers. They received laughable protection from Xhaka and Ramsey, who let McGeady run through them multiple times. Ox was awful as well, indecisive and wasteful on the ball.

We couldn't play around the press of a Championship side. rofl

Giroud sure is scoring some decisive goals right now.

No. The first half performance was worse than the one at Bournemouth. Preston could have been 3-0 up at half-time Laughing

Nah, Niles was poor, but so was the whole backline as well.

Like Jay said though, Niles is allowed a few poor games. The help from the midfield was non-existent however. Can't see how we are going to properly manage with Xhaka - Ramsey for the next month or so.
