So as expected, Lukas Podolski has been dropped down to the bench for the big game at Anfield. Santi Cazorla will more than likely resume his position on the left with the Ox coming in on the right of the Arsenal attack. Clearly Arsène has issue with the German's capability to track back and help out defensively. The good news Poldi fans is that we have a sledgehammer of a substitute up our sleeves should we require it. Hopefully not because if he doesn't come on then it means we are more than likely winning the game but it is nice to have the option there if need be.

Jack Wilshere returns to the central midfield position in place of the Ox. Hopefully he can carry on where he left off before his injury. I think with Jack in the middle and Ox out on the flank it gives us a better balance.

Lastly Arsène has opted for Nacho Monreal which is a surprise considering who he is up against. Perhaps his run of games of late has given him the edge not to mention his relationship with Cazorla.

The Full Line Up:

Let us do this, three points please Arsenal.
