It’s that time again. Weekly chatter for the Arsenal before a game. A big one it is too, with Liverpool, winning ugly and happy to do so to build confidence, coming to town. Let’s see what the Arsenal chatter is all about.
Neither really. Both have strengths where the other is weaker. You would probably give Bellerin the benefit as he’s younger, can get better and has the pace to make up for any issues. That’s the main reason he played against Palace as their threats from the wings are quick and tricky. Debuchy might have had trouble.
There is no point blaming Cech for the Palace goal. It’s doubtful that any keeper could’ve saved that. The most frustrating thing about being an Arsenal fan right now is that there still hasn’t been a giant leap of progress, as the games we’ve seen so far have shown.
Sure, they could, but they are highly unlikely to arrive.
Sure, more goals from Ozil would be nice but even that might not change the perception of him. He’s just no that player though.
Yes, Walcott didn’t start at Crystal Palace but Giroud made more sense tactically. Walcott will play centrally moving forward so it’s not a major issue he wasn’t selected to play on the right. He’ll get his chances and I’m more confident he’ll take them and keep Giroud benched.
Probably. It’s just what was feared when Coquelin helped the team improve performance-wise. Wenger would just stick with what he knew. Coquelin is a solid player, in a very specific role, but if he stays at that level and/or continues to be a target for the opposition then Arsenal will have problems.
