Arsenal need a win to keep alive any faint hopes of winning the Premier League title when they take on leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Here is the side Gooner Mac thinks Arsene Wenger will select for the game:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is expected to retain his place ahead of David Ospina despite conceding twice against Watford in midweek.
Defence: Hector Bellerin is set to come back in to the defence at right-back after being rested in midweek with Gabriel the man to make way while Nacho Monreal is expected to keep his place ahead of Kieran Gibbs at left-back.
Shkodran Mustafi will have been disappointed with Watford’s second goal but the German international should still retain his place alongside Laurent Koscielny against Chelsea.
Midfield: We have a crisis in midfield as Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out after being forced off with a calf strain on Tuesday night. With Granit Xhaka still suspended, Santi Cazorla no closer to recovering from his Achilles injury and Mohamed Elneny at the African Cup of Nations we’re down to the bare bones in midfield.
The good news is that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is expected to shake-off a knee injury that left him limping towards the end of the Watford game and he should start alongside Francis Coquelin this weekend.
Attack: Olivier Giroud is a doubt after suffering an ankle injury last time out so Danny Welbeck is expected to be recalled up front after being rested against Watford having returned to the starting eleven with a brace against Southampton last weekend.
Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are certain to retain their places in the attack despite their disappointing performances against the Hornets while Theo Walcott should come back in at right-wing after being a second half substitute on Tuesday.
Alex Iwobi may be the unlucky one to drop out after scoring in midweek while he’s likely to be on the bench along with Lucas Perez.
Here is how I think we’ll see Arsenal line-up:
