The Opposition: Arsenal

Last updated : 18 December 2009 By Kevin Whitcher

The Gameplan
4-3-3. I call it the 'Arselona' formation.

Goals come from carving the opposition apart with slick passing football.

Defending is not a strong point. Any set piece in Arsenal’s own half is a definite scoring opportunity. Also a tendency to get caught on the break.

Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) will not play. Denilson (back) should be available.

Predicted starting 11

Sagna – Gallas – Vermaelen – Traore
Ramsey – Song – Denilson
Nasri – Arshavin – Diaby
