Teams News: Arsenal vs Schalke

The mighty Gunners take to the field tonight against Schalke as Champions League football returns for the winter.

After the frightful performance against Norwich on Saturday Arsene`s army will look to bounce back in the best way possible. Hopefully the boys will have a few tricks up their sleeve and can provide us with a real treat.

Schalke represent the toughest task in our CL group stage and a win of any kind tonight will see us win 9 points from 9 and all but qualified for the knockout stages.

Let`s see how the team lines up.

Arsenal team: Mannone, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Santos, Coquelin, Arteta, Ramsey, Podolski, Cazorla, Gervinho

Substitutes: Shea, Koscielny, Djourou, Arshavin, Gnabry, Giroud, Chamakh

Squad looks like the expected one, though something inside of me wished to see Cazorla or Arteta rested. I also thought we could get a surprise like Arshavin or Gnabry starting. I kid. This is serious business and the lads just have to be focused tonight. Good luck lads.

Bar Cazorla, we don't look as though we have enough quality in the final third. Gervinho a disappointment again. Ramsey not really a wide man to make a difference. Gonna need a big improvement to win the game.

Jenks must see the movements ahead of him instead of his favourite past time, passing backwards. Santos appears swamped and does need more support from both Poldi and Arteta/Coquelin. It will be foolhardy to sub Santos as we could lose our offensive fluidity from that flank, plus Vermaelen could be forced into a 2nd yellow if he he is moved to LB.

Poldolski needs to be doing more, you'd feel as we have little creativity in attack with Gervinho playing without any conviction to make a difference. He hesitates too much and needs to get stuck in a lot more. Ramsey must look up sometimes to make the quick pass, what with all the runs being made in front of him. At some point, both sides will throw caution to the wind and it will be who can hurt the other more that will count.

Arshavin or Gnabry on for pace and creativity. That's a thought.

i agree with the commentator, Santos needs to come off, he looks slow and clumsy and is constantly out of position.

Santos keeping the goalscorer onside two matches in a row. How long does it really take to see that he is a liability? It was obvious after around 5 minutes in this match.
