TEAMS – Arsenal v Aston Villa: Rosicky & Ox Start

By on August 17, 2013

Premier League is back as we welcome Aston Villa to the Emirates today. It’s time to forget the shambolic summer of transfer in-activity and get behind the boys.

Arsene Wenger has a wafer-thin squad to choose from and the back four practically picks itself with Nacho Monreal and Thomas Vermaelen our injured. Bacary Sagna has been passed fit to play while Tomas Rosicky and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also get a chance to impress.


Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Ramsey, Wilshere, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Giroud

Subs: Fabianski, Jenkinson, Frimpong, Cazorla, Gnabry, Podolski, Sanogo.

Aston Villa

Guzan, Lowton, Vlaar, Baker, Luna, El Ahmadi, Westwood, Delph, Agbonlahor, Benteke, Weimann

Subs: Steer, Okore, Clark, Bacuna, Helenius, Bowery, Tonev

    After the match, it show the Arsenal board and esp Wenger doesn’t respect the fan. If they retro-watch the match re-run they will see the real emotion of the fan doesn’t be happy and enjoy in this stadium . The team played in the stupid style that every team knew how to play by solid double wall players in front of goal and counter attack style to beat the penny Szczesny who doesn’t do anything to show try to protect the goal. Is AW still thinking the team is good enough for the trophy ? Finally ,AW is lies.

    Wenger and the ref are to blame in equal measure for this particular result, however today is not just about losing to an average Villa at home but has proved AW has not learned from the past and being thread bare at the beginning of the season. It is a completely embarrassing situation for fans and players alike.
