As mentioned this morning, Arsenal have reverted back to a 4-1-4-1 system. Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey are likely to play just ahead of Mikel Arteta unless Arsene goes with the 4-2-3-1 which is probably unlikely. It is a shame to move Alexis away from the central position he played so well in but against a side of the quality of Manchester United the idea was always going to be to try and wrestle control of the game.

I wonder if Alexis will start in front of Calum Chambers rather than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to both make di Maria think about going the other way as well as having extra protection from the energetic star.

Hopefully we'll do the business.

 

Confirmed Line Up:

Subs: Martinez, Bellerin, Flamini, Rosicky, Cazorla, Podolski, Giroud
