Arsenal entertain Newcastle United at the Emirates tonight in a bid to further secure the fourth position on the log. after fellow contender Everton Slipped up with 2-0 defeat over the weekend to Southampton.
Roberto Martinez side would be hoping the gunners go the same direction as they did, but that is unlikely to happen with the gunners fully aware of the dangers should a slip up occur tonight at the Emirates.
Arsenal who would have been 5th on the log had the Toffee’s defeated the saints over the Weekend remain 4th ahead of Everton with just a point going into the game tonight at the Emirates.
The gunners are fired up with the return of injured stars Ozil and Ramsey who since their return have seen the gunners go two straight wins with the gunners scoring no less than 3 goals in each match.
Here is my predicted starting line up for tonight’s fixture…
Wojciech Szczesny will definitely return in goal for Arsenal against Newcastle.
Bacary Sagna: The Frenchman When fit is Wenger’s first choice any day and will equally be a sure bet for tonights clash at the Emirates.
Nacho Monreal: With Kieran Gibbs out with an ankle injury, Nacho Monreal will once again deputise in defence for Arsenal tonight.
Per Mertesacker: The BFG is also another sure bet for tonight tie. With the German currently the most capped Arsenal player this season.
Laurent Koscielny: The Frenchman returned from injury and has taken part in our last matches so far. Koscielny will definitely start – pairing with Mertesacker at the heart of the defense.
Arteta: The Spaniard should once again feature for the gunners against Newcastle. Although having lost a tooth in our last match it is likely that the Spaniard would return to the starting line up following a trip to the dentist.
Aaron Ramsey: The Welshman put up a fine display against Hull City earning himself the man of the match award for the 5th time this season. It is expected that the prolific midfielder would once again start tonight for the gunners against Newcastle.
Santiago Carzola: Carzola should yet again make another appearance for the gunners against Newcastle, and he is likely to have a good game with the return of Ozil and Ramsey back into the Arsenal midfield set to raise his game as the trio have in the past worked well together in the middle of the park as well as going forward.
Mesut Ozil: The German returned from injury and featured in our last game against Hull City putting up a fine display. It is expected that the prolific midfielder would once again start tonight for the gunners against Newcastle.
Lukas Podolski: The German has been in a sensational goal form for Arsenal in the last two games, bagging a brace in both of our last encounter. He will surely be handed another start against Newcastle tonight at the Emirates.
Giroud: The Frenchman who second to Mertesacker has had more play time on the pitch for Arsenal is expected to once again feature for the gunners tonight upfront.
It is Expected that with this line up the gunners should comfortably cruise to a 3-1 victory (my guess). going by the team’s current burst of confidence upfront with the return of key player and also coupled with the support from the home fans.
What are your guesses?
