  • This was a 4-1-4-1 from Arsenal, although Wilshere dropped back to pick up possession from Xhaka frequently. We should've won by more but I will take a run of 1-0s at the moment. Cracking strike from Oezil. He was good all game. Alexis continues to misfire although it isn't from want of trying. Newcastle had a few decent moments and if they play like this throughout the season, they will pick up some valuable away points. Today, we just had a little bit too much for them.

  • New Castle +2 is a gift

  • @babyenot +++

  • arsenal win and lacazette to score

  • Given we will heavily dominate; Mustafi & Ramsey are out and Wilshere playing as a box-to-box CM will do nothing but provide opportunities to be injured, I would like Wenger to play a 4-3-3 with Xhaka as the middle of the 3 CMs (and also sitting slightly deeper to make it look similar to a 4-1-2-3), Oezil & Wilshere dictating play in front of Newcastle's 18-yard box and a front 3 of Welbeck, Lacazette and Sanchez. The lack of movement against West Ham was worrying but we are a completely different team at home and have created an impressive number of chances (135 total, 8.44 per game) with 2nd placed Liverpool creating 'only' 116 (7.25/game). Defensive errors have counted for 3 of the 7 goals conceded (should be 4 imo) and Sunday league marking has counted for another two. Newcastle look every inch the newly-promoted side away from home and you can never assume you will make mistakes in defence or miss chances so I'm going for what should be a comfortable Arsenal win. 4-0.

  • @SteveHyland Thank you for your essay submission but I'm afraid you missed the deadline therefore you will be capped at the pass mark

  • @SteveHyland I can't disagree.

  • can be again big win, 4-0

  • Time for Arsenal to get deported to China. We've seen enough.

  • @Diegolazo19 Don't be so radical. Wenger will be enough.

  • Arsenal will not drop any points here 100% win 4-2

  • @Andro19 Keep dreaming. The tinpot Arsenal are about to get smashed.

  • Home win.

  • @MEHJones Don't be cocky. Arsenal are a small club.

  • @Diegolazo19 Cocky? Is that a reference to me being a Spurs fan? It's in my interest for Arsenal to drop a few more points but against Newcastle at home I just can't see it. It's a good fixture for Arsenal to bounce back in.

  • @Diegolazo19- The 3rd biggest club in England equals small in your eyes, does it? Let me guess, Chelsea fan since 2003 or City fan since 2008?

  • Darlow should be dropped for Elliot.
