By on January 25, 2011

It’s all to play for against Ipswich tonight in the Carling Cup. The first leg saw us go down to a 1-0 defeat after we put on a horrid performance at Portman Road but in all probability this time we should make it [touch wood]!

Injury News:

Abou Diaby ‘may’ return to the squad, but the rest of the players i.e Luke, Alumina, Tommy-V, SQ18, and Frimpong are still out. No new injuries from the weekend.

Predicted Team:

——————————————————-Szczesny————————————————————-

—Eboue————————–Kosher————————Djourou—————————-Gibbs——

——————————————————Denilson————————————————————

——————————————Cesc————————–Jack———————————————

——-Nikko———————————————————————————————Nasri————

——————————————————-Chamakh———————————————————–

Subs: Shea, Sagna, Song, TR7, Arshavin, Theo, RVP

Final Thoughts:

The boss has said that he shall be rotating the squad a little, but the above squad is what I do expect. Chamakh and Nikko played well at Elland Road last week so I guess they should start up front along with Nasri. Fabregas and Jack shall act as Cam’s behind them and Denilson should play CDM. The defense should only see 2 changes wih Sagna and Clichy being subbed for Eboue and Gibbs. Conor Wickham is a guy we must look out for so both Denilson and Eboue should be cautious about moving forward. Ipswich beat us using the long-ball and counter-attack tactic last time so this is also something which we must be wary about.

Now I know people are thinking that although the boss has said that he will rotate why such a squad ???

Well, here’s the reason. It has been rumoured that Ipswich will look to ‘Park the bus’ at the Emirates, so logically this is one of the best teams to break down their defense. Secondly, if they wish to surprise us and go on the offensive, the above team is perfect to counter-attack with! Now RVP is on a hot streak [Touch-wood] but I guess he should rest a bit as he has played an entire match 2 days back. If required we can bring him and Theo on at half-time.

Cheers,

THE ARMOURY

    do we think he might try and keep Sagna in the team for defensive solidity, but also feel the guilt and play Eboue, perhaps as part of the front 3?
    not saying this is what i hope for but could it be on his mind, because i would say eboue needs a game but we need sagna in defence.

    Are you mad? Bendtner was useless against Leeds and denilson is a non entity that falls over on the floor and passses to the side…I’m sorry but I’d prefer us to ship these non entities out the club and start our promising English players like Afobe, JET etc who play with passion.

    If Arsenal starts with Bendtner and Denilson against Ipswich it will just waste minutes and not produce an end product.

    why should eboue be giving a game he was s.h.i.t.e in the 1st leg
