Liverpool vs Arsenal

Liverpool vs Arsenal

Today`s offering sees Arsenal take on Liverpool at Anfield, and as I won`t be around later to publish the team news, you`ll have to settle for a simple match discussion thread instead.

After a rather disappointing end of August that saw not more body come in to strengthen our lines, Arsene Wenger`s Arsenal attempt to register not only their first win of the season but also their first goal.

After two goalless draws in our first two games it`s imperative we get three points on the board. Not only because we also have Chelsea and Manchester City to play in September, but also because a loss today would see Gooners up in arms after the Frenchman`s decision not to bring any fresh faces in after letting van Persie, Song, Bendtner and Park leave the club.

With Liverpool and Arsenal have the two worst shooting accuracy stats in the league so far this season, we could be in for a long day.

Key team news to watch out for will be whether we pick Koscielny over the clean sheet-assured partnership of Per and the Verminator. Then there's the matter of who plays, between Gervinho, Theo and the Ox.

Team news out. Only change to our last team is the Ox in for Gervinho. I will much prefer that the manager retains the defense. I have heard it said that Per can't deal with the pace and guile of Suarez and I can only say Per does have a way of keeping the danger men quiet when he is on his game. In any case, how many defenders can cope with that chap? I wish Oxlade-Chamberlain a good game. If he is good enough for England, he is old enough for this.

Need to get better crosses in for Giroud. I thought that is why we have Jenks plaing .

Cazorla's set up was brilliant, don't know how he spotted poldi's run

Credit to Giroud for his movement which split the Liverpool defense.

I don't know but I feel Oxlade-Chamberlain should be doing more defensively, in support of Jenks, who has held his own today, despite two mis-placed passes and kick-outs.

Word for Diaby too, his close control has been majestic often surrounded by two or three, he hasn't dawdled and hasn't surrendered possession trying to do too much, but has strode forward when the occasion has presented itself. Come on Arsenal! Also that 'she said no robin' chant is just embarrassing, real low class bitter crap, we should be much better than that.

Diaby; probably our MOTM, today. Al round intelligent play by the Arsenal and even the keeper earned his shirt today. Well, it is another clean sheet for the side, which is good for confidence.

Superb win, we look a totally different proposition with Bould in charge defensively, even with Gibbo & Jenks we seem so much more solid. Great to see Pod & Santi net. Onwards & upwards Arsenal with a great launch pad to give some badly needed confidence both on & off the field.
