My team to face Chelski

October 28, 2011

The best goalie in the league will clearly keep his place – Chezney

Full Backs – Keep the Brazilian Santos going at Left Back, and hopefully bring in a proper Right Back in Jenko, who seems to be back fit.  Djourou done ok against Stoke, but eventually a good winger will destroy a Centre Back playing in a makeshift full back role.

Centre Backs – This appears to be the sticking point with the return to fitness of TV5, keep him wrapped in cotton wool I say.  The partnership of Kos and Per has developed well in recent weeks, it would be foolish to break it up now.

Midfield – Centrally I would play Song in the defensive role, with Arteta continuing to deputise for the injured Wilshere in the link role, and  I would stick with Arshavin ahead of Ramsey for the free role behind the striker.  This is his position, and he puts in so much more effort there as shown against Bolton in the Carling Cup. 

Wide – Theo and Gervinho… Speed Kills overlapping full backs.

Striker – Van the Man.

Conclusion: Chelski are there for the taking, they don’t particularly have a strong side these days, an efficient side,  but not of the strength of years gone by.  Defensively they are whack in my opinion.  Lets go their and rumble.

    i would stick Kos in at right back. Wenger said he was ‘educated’ as a full back in his early years.i think jenkinson will get murdered by cole and mata down the left side.Kos is likely to hold back a bit more on the attacking side of things and give us a bit more of a solid back 4.

    My team will be as follows; Scenzney, Kons, Per, Verm & Santos back four. Song, Arteta, Ramsey & Arshavin. While Rvp & Gerninho spearhead the attack.

    I’ll prefer szcesny (kos-per-ver-santos) md (song-arteta-ramsey) attack (gerv-van-park). Theo to come as an impact sub together with arshavin.

    smart manager you would be! stick arshavin over ramsey seems like the right decision to me. i believe wenger will start with ramsey to be safe and perhaps bring the russian on later or if things get sticky

    Whether United will continue to be so effective at stopping attacking full-backs following their shift back to 4–4–2 remains to be seen. Certainly Park, usually so effective in such a role, didn’t really get to grips with Ashley Cole during the Community Shield. Nonetheless there is no reason to believe that those skirmishes in wide areas will not continue to be a key part of the battle, particularly if the trend for “false nines” – that is, centre-forwards who drop deep, as Francesco Totti did for Roma three seasons ago, Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez did for Manchester United two seasons ago, and Leo Messi did for Barcelona last season – continues.
