Ipswich vs Arsenal: Injury News, Preferred Team & Predicted Score
Ipswich host Arsenal at Portman Road tonight. The Blues returning from London having suffered a 7-0 thrashing from Premier League Champions Chelsea now face an Arsenal side which will be looking to earn back some respect after their ‘performance’ against Leeds United. In all probability we shall field a weak side against Ipswich. Hopefully the fellas’ should do enough work so when we host them at the Emirates we won’t have a lot to do!
Injury News :
The normal list of injuries now has a new addition to it. Sebastien Squillaci has unfortunately picked up a hamstring injury against Leeds, and is ruled out of this clash. [However every cloud does have a silver lining, so this injury may just force Le Boss to buy a defender in January.] The remaining names are the same : Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles), Manuel Almunia (ankle), Abou Diaby (calf) are all out with defender Bacary Sagna serving his 2nd match ban.
Subs: Luke, Clichy, Djourou, Jack, Denilson, Nasri, Chamakh
AA23 has really been having a bad dry spell, and this would be the perfect opportunity for him to do well. Nikko wants his chance up front, so I’d play him. Djourou can rest for sometime, with rookie defender Miguel taking his place. Hopefully Cesc can be given some time to rest for Upton Park next week with Chamakh and Nasri sitting on the bench (incase something goes horribly wrong!)
IPSWICH TOWN 0 – 4 ARSENAL FC
