Teams News: Arsenal vs. Chelsea

Following successive 6-1 home victories for the Gunners we face our toughest home game so far as the reigning European Champions come to town.

It`s doubtful that we can continue the run today (even though we rammed five past them at The Bridge last season) as Chelsea represent our trickiest home tie so far this season.

I`m of the opinion that for the first time in 7-8 years we`re now the stronger team of the two (this is based on our brief season so far), but we all know that football has no respect for opinions and will dish up whatever result it likes on the day.

Confidence is high at Arsenal right now, though it only takes one bad game to shatter that confidence and Chelsea are the masters of smashing our confidence to pieces so concentration is paramount today.

Let`s check out the boys tasked with making the Champions of Europe cry.

Arsenal: Mannone, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Diaby, Cazorla, Ramsey, Gervinho, Podolski.

Subs: Martinez, Mertesacker, Djourou, Santos, Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Giroud.

Koscielny that is laughable. No way he should be starting above Mertz or Verm. If that was Djourou what would everyoen say. Rubbish.

Sloppy first half but we were dominating in the final 15 .... awesome goal from The Forehead. Let's kick on and win this ******** now.

Good half. We showed some settling in problems owing to the changes made, initially but will only improve. The jury will be out on Kozzer for that goal as some would say the BFG wont allow Torres that challenge. However, situations can't be the same with personnel change. Then there was the Diaby injury which necessitated the unplanned change. 2nd half will be pivotal.

We had them really under the pump after we equalised. Let's go on with it in the 2nd half.

I think RDM's bold approach of trying to take the initiative from Arsenal at home has surprised our technical crew and we will need to regroup and put their midfield under more pressure. They are too comfy for my liking.

Koscielny own goal? How am I the only one to see how mediocre this guy is?
