Match against Everton - Time to keep a clean-sheet?

Walcott will be fired up to prove a point.
But then it is so easy to shunt him away in a blind alley.
And after a few hefty tackles from Xhaka, Torreira and Sokratis, he will disappear.

But Richarlison is a different kind of animal and let's hope after 3 games layoff, he had lost his match sharpness.

Torreira or Elneny needed to start to provide steel in the middle and I will fancy Xhaka in the middle to stabilise the midfield with Iwobi-Laca-Ozil as Forward-3 with enough flair to open up Everton ageing Back-4.

................................Cech

...Bellerin ... Mustafi ... Sokratis ... Monreal

.............Elneny ............... Torreira

...Ozil.................... Xhaka..............Iwobi

............................ Lacazette

We have enough goal-scoring threat in Ozil, Laca, Iwobi and Xhaka.

What we need is to plug the leaky defence with Elneny-Torreira as Double Pivot.
Both of them concentrate on winning the ball and to execute a quick and simple pass for Forward-3 to do their job.

Xhaka is better playing forward and he has spatial awareness to defend high up, breaking up plays and with Elneny-Torreira sweeping behind him, our defence is instantly tighten up.

Ramsey will disrupt the balancee in the team with his slow play and lack of spatial awareness, and really he has a slow brain to play with his head up and to glimpse the tactical situation and execute the correct pass with proper weightage.

Ozil, Mkhi and Xhaka are ahead of him; not forgetting Iwobi who can play in the middle.

And with Smith-Rowe and AMN pushing for a starting role, the value of Ramsey had diminished in Emery quick-tempo and high pressing game.
I don't see a future for him and believe he will leave in January 2019 or just another greedy git running down his contract and leave on a Bosman in the summer.

Line up against Everton. Hopefully with Torreira starting, we will be able to keep a clean sheet.

Cech, Bellerin, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Xhaka, Torreira, Ramsey, Ozil, Lacazette, Aubameyang

Subs: Elneny, Leno, Lichtsteiner, Holding, Welbeck, Guendouzi, Iwobi

Xhaka given the ball away cheaply 2 times already to gift Everton clear cut chances.

Ramsey is just ineffective in the number 10 position

Why is Mykhi not on the bench? Surely he'd be better than Ramsey or Ozil who have been poor. Iwobi will be an option.

Xhaka needs to wake up, too casual against a team trying to press us.

Cech has been impressive.

I don’t care about the clean sheet ... I am just desperate to win this match.

Cech saving us so far.
WE
NEED
GOALS

Agreed with need to replace Ramsey.
I still don’t get the reason for Xhaka’s presence.
Praying for Holding.
Moss will be baited into carding Torreira by the diving cheats... Watch.

Second one, he slipped whilst shooting and almost messed it up. Very lucky the lineman didn't spot the offside.

Laca goal has changed the game. That's why its important to get both him and Auba together.

Good result and a clean sheet!

Cech and Toreirra had a great game.

It is no accident that we got the clean sheet with Torreira starting and anchoring the defence.

Cech was MOTM.

Agree, only problem was that midfield less effective at playmaking



- 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.

I thought Ramsey, Mustafi and Ozil was both particularly poor again today. Ramsey especially kept losing the ball, and doesn't have the pace to get away. As for his "assists", he was just lucky. First one was all Laca, the second one, was a slip. If Ramsey is not scoring I am not sure what he adds.

When is Kos due back??

Singh disappears after yet another good performance by Laca and Cech

He’ll ignore that fact and just mutter that he’s been proven right again because Ramsey was poor.

Well Ramsey might have been poor but his were the two assists, and if Lacca had taken another, which he should have, it would have been three.
So in ice skating terms Ramsey was a five, but in football effectiveness the impact was a ten
