I thought we would see Mathieu Debuchy as he was training but he is not even in the squad, maybe it's the last we see of him and he will move in January, unless he is injured. So Ainsley Maitland-Niles who was on loan at Ipswich Town last season will be given the chance to show what he can do. Xhaka and Elneny start as expected as does new boy Lucas Perez wearing his new shinny new number 9 shirt.

Theo Walcott comes back into the team on the right and Alex Iwobi keeps his place on the left, which I am pleased about. I'm not too worried about Alexis starting at centre forward as long as Theo Walcott makes runs into his spaces when he moves to the flank as he often does. Xhaka and Elneny and new boy Lucas Perez are on the bench, hopefully we can ease them in from a comfortable winning position *prays*

The new boys are both in the starting line up for today's match with Southampton at the Emirates, the surprise is that both Xhaka and Alexis take their places on the bench, I suppose that is just a consequence of the international football that has been on show in the last week. With Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lucas in our front three we have plenty of pace and mobility so it will be interesting to see how that gels together. Our bench also looks nice and strong so we have plenty options if need be.

Lets hope for three points and an entertaining Arsenal performance.

Interestingly though Arsene has made some changes to the starting 11 with Santi Cazorla coming back into the team and almost equally as surprising Arsene has selected Francis Coquelin who has been out of favour for the last few weeks. Jack Wilshere comes back into the team at the expense of Alex Iwobi but I had a feeling that would happen so we should see him starting from the flank.

    So let me stop reminiscing of days gone by and let me focus on our Welsh wonder. Let me start off by saying that I think it is quite obvious that Aaron Ramsey is better in central midfield. His partnership with Mesut Özil, his running from deep and his underrated ball winning ability makes him a ...Read more
