BIG GAME AT MIGHTY STOKE TODAY
Quick post because I’m late to the mark today.
Things I’d love to see today.
Would love to see Arsenal a bit more organized in defence today. The team know everything is a little bit makeshift at the moment, so it falls upon everyone to muck in and assume a little more accountability than we did against Leicester. That means being first to second balls, that means over communicating at set pieces, that means going in HARD FIRST AND MAKING A STATEMENT MANLY POWER GRRRRRR.
I think we looked pretty good going forward against Leicester, and to be honest, I wouldn’t be surprised to see us knock four in again today. Stoke aren’t the team they once were, and we should be able to pick holes in their backline all day today. I’m hoping for another positive showing from Lacazette, and I’d really like to see Danny Welbeck continue his run of fitness (3 games, and I’m hoping to see his run continue).
Wenger had kind words to say about Giroud pregame.
I don’t mean to pick on Xhaka, but regardless of those monster passing statistics, it’s clear that he struggles with concentration a little. I’d love to see a flawless game from our no doubt talented Swiss midfielder. Part of that is on him to not do something silly, part of that is on the team to make sure he’s not put in situations where he’s the only one chasing back. We need a complete midfield performance out there, because that’s the part of the squad that feels the least complete this season.
Let’s have fun, drink all the beer, and no abusing Wenger on train back.
