Whatever the line up today, we would all be gossiping about one thing or the other.

As expected there are a few interesting talking points with today’s line up. Mesut Ozil is not in the squad due to illness. I can vouch for a spot of Christmas sickness myself and it’s not much fun. Arsene did also say pre match that a few of the players have been struggling with flu and the like.

I was hoping that Ramsey would play a part in the midfield, especially with Mesut out but the fresh Elneny has been given a chance along side Granit Xhaka.

Lucas Perez was a hot topic on the latest Arsenal Vision Post Match Podcast but the Spaniard has been granted a start today in a rather attacking looking front line, I suspect that Alex Iwobi will move to Ozil's position.

Gabriel continues in the side with the returning Mustafi taking a place on the bench, perhaps we will see him on Tuesday instead. Danny Welbeck doesn't make the bench which makes me cry a little but that's ok, plenty of time for him.
