Team against Koln - Dare Wenger rotates the squad?

Wenger said he is serious on winning Europa Cup.
He said he is taking one match at a time and will not factor in Chelski game in selecting the squad.
He also said he needed to rotate the squad and changed "3 or 4 players".

We knew that he will field all the players on the bench to keep them playing and happy.
Plus redemption time for Alexis and Wilshere?

Will Wenger has the balls to experiment and dropped starters like Conte?

Will Iwobi shows up with an engine to run box-to-box and defends like a wingback?

After Monreal and Kolasinac, who is left to play as a left-back?


...................................Ospina

........... Chambers......Mertesacker.....Holding

...Nelson...........Ramsey....Elneny............Iwobi

........Walcott.............Giroud..............Alexis

I assume he would rest Ramsey. Alexis may need the practice, or he could keep him on bench for emergencies



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Well strangely the match is sold out, so someone must

He will probably play xhaka-elneny. And play Koscielny instead of chambers and possibly monreal as LWB. Iwobi either on the bench or in place of alexis with alexis on the bench

I'm way more interested in this than the league. We might actually win this. Not to mention it's been so long since we won the cup winners cup it would be nice to see Wenger win in Europe (then leave)

Seven players rested Wilshire could play
Cech
Ramsey
Xhaka
Lacazette
Ozil
Welbeck
Kos not playing and looks like Theo won't be starting either Santo and Coq injured.

Maitland-Niles was featured heavily during pre-season, playing RWB and CB as well.
Similarly, Elneny was tried out as CB during pre-season, floating between Back-3 and then drive forward to win balls in midfield.

It is huge gamble to start Wilshere, certainly he will play and I think Wenger will be careful with him and should use him as a supersub during 2nd half.

Looking at the squad again, it is pretty thin and heavily dependable on a few key players to sustain our title challenge. That is, key players will not be risk in a winnable game playing at home.

.........................................Ospina

...Maitland-Niles...Chambers...Mertesacker...Kolasinac

...Nelson..........................Elneny......................Iwobi

........Walcott................Giroud..............Alexis


4-3-3 is our best option with Wilshere coming in during 70th minute to give him a run-in.

Perhaps Wenger will start either Monreal or Kolasinac as LB?

If we get good balls in, giroud should score a couple. He has been decently sharp without much game time
