Good morning! This post will be brief as I’m between computers. Basically, we’re all very excited about hosting Reading today. We’ve scored a shed load against them this year and we’ve conceded a similar amount. On paper we should be taking them to pieces but we all know that complacency is always our biggest enemy against the smaller sides.
On the injury front, we’ve no Jack Wilshere or Diaby in midfield. That means a likely trio of Cazorla, Rambo and Arteta. Not the most dynamic and not the most physical… but more than capable of keeping hold of the ball and controlling the game.
Up top I’m imagining a trio of Giroud, Podolski and Chamberlain will be the choice. Gervinho might slink into the starting 11, but based on form it has to be the young Englishman. At the back, we’ll likely opt for Fabianski in goal… with Jenks, Koscielny, Mertesacker and Monreal. Hopefully they’ll continue with the form that’s seen them take 2 clean sheets in a row.
Arsenal need to take the game to Reading. It’ll be open, but we need to control possession. They’ll be playing for a new manager today, so we need to be careful… complacency isn’t an option. 3 points is an absolute must.
Anyway, apolgies for the lack of content. Geoff is making a long awaited return to blogging later on this week. Catch you tomorrow!
