Team News: Chelsea vs Arsenal

I`m running a little late today so I`m afraid I`ll have to dispense with the merriment today and get right down to the team new.

The team is unchanged though our attack options from the bench have been reduced considerably after Lukas Podolski and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were taken down with illness.

A win against the Lotto Chavs would be massive for us as we come to the end of a difficult month,

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Coquelin, Wilshere, Diaby, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud.

Subs: Mannone, Koscielny, Jenkinson, Santos, Frimpong, Ramsey, Arshavin.

Easy feckin peezy for chavski. We look like a clueless bunch of feckwits.

Appears Arsene's game plan of only worrying about our own game and not really focusing on how to deal with the opposition is working a treat again.

Not started according to plan. Two avoidable goals. With a little 'assist' from the ref for them. Foul on Coquelin ignored by the ref for the first; and not sure how much contact Szczesny had for the penalty call. Diaby was posing for photographs, dwelling too long on the ball there for his pocket to be picked. I think we should focus on staying compact before thinking how to come back from this.

Naija - Arsene doesn't do staying compact, that's the problem.

Walcott must have another variation to his corner kicks or simply be relieved of that duty. We don't seem to have a clue how to scrap.

Wenger is right about the art of tackling disappearing. Our midfield don't seem to understand what it means. Chelsea have tackled us out of the game.

Diaby is not ready to come back. He has to go off at half-time, probably for Ramse, maybe even for Frimpong. And I know he's alienated everyone at the club but Arshavin surely has to come on - he's better than what we've got out there atm.

Walcott being offside 3 times indicates he is trying too hard to earn his big wages. He must remain disciplined and patient. The 2nd half will tell a lot about Wenger's tactical nous; we are being battered through the wings and it is clear our full backs need more support from the DMs, while the distance between Vermaelen and Gibbs is worrying. Giroud works hard but needs to improve his composure in the rare goal mouth situations. The jury is out on him from today.

frankly, we are lucky to only be 2 down. Sagna has been an open door. Nowhere near the defender he was 2 seasons ago.

2nd best in every position all over the pitch. Lucky not to be at least 4 down with that pillock diaby wrestling in the box and other numerous chav chances. Sagna is stinking the joint out again counting down the months til the summer. Yet more naive keeping from chesney too. Struggling to see a solitary positive from this. Our only realistic hope in this is for a great feck off blizzard to call it off. Grim times with a manager sitting on his hands refusing to change course from the iceberg dead ahead.
