Fabianski gets the nod today
August 15, 2010
Straight duel between Almunia and Fabianski for the goalie starting position in our opening Premiership game at Liverpool this afternoon.
I would be flabbergasted if the Polish youngster does not get the nod, actually, scrap that, there is no point debating it… he clearly starts today.
Almunia has been sent to Coventry!
What may be of even more interest is who the backup keeper is on the bench, maybe the two Poles get the nod.
I envision the following starting eleven…
Fabianski, Sagna, Kos, Verminator, Clichy, Denilson, Fabregras, Nasri, Theo, Chamakh, AA23.
The trio in midfield are the three that takes some guessing to be frank, there is not really any clear indication of who is fit, who is maybe fit, etc.
First game of the season, away at Anfield, Wenger may take the safe route of Denilson… if he really wants to put trust in his young guns, and go on pre-season form, that trio should clearly be Frimpong, Wilshere and Nasri, and that is exactly the trio I would love to see line-up today.
What a statement that would be.
Far too early in the season for predictions, who knows what kind of form the 22 players are in, fitness levels are not peak levels as of yet for many.
Could be a scrappy tight game, battled out in the centre of the park, which is why I would love to see the spikey Frimpong and Wilshere do battle for the Arsenal.
Can’t wait, whoever lines up for us, simply can’t wait!
Come on you Mighty ARSENAL!
