    Stone me! That's... a 'refreshing' attitude from the Theatre of Wet Dreams. :-)

    Gabriel and Kos out, with Mustafi being a doubt. Arsenal in another typical injury crisis.

    We are ****ed. Koscielny got banned, Gabriel ****ed his knee and Mustafi is currently out with concussion. Hopefully he'll make it but if he doesn't pass the standards required, he shouldn't play.

    Our team is looking like:

    Cech
    Holding-Mertesacker-Monreal
    Bellerin/OxCham Ramsey Xhaka Gibbs
    Özil Giroud Sanchez​

    We might have to go down the 05 cup final route and park the bus :eeek

    I'm finding it very hard to even have an optimistic hope of this match. I'm just going to get drunk instead.

    I can't see past anything past a Chelsea win on Saturday and think 7/10 is actually good value.

    I also like to look of Chelsea Win & BTTS @ 5/2 - Ladbrokes

    Apparently Ospina will be starting :eeek

    Wenger did this with Fabianski in 2014.

    Worst thing for us heading to this game is thinking it is already won. Good thing is that i don't think Conte is the type of manager to allow that.

    Would start Matic for this one ahead of Cesc. Always good knowing if things don't pan out the way we need to, we can always bring him on.

    Both Willian and Pedro is a toss up.

    Apparently Cech is injured....and so is Gibbs. We've going to leave Mustafi until the last minute...but it's looking like:


    If OxCham doesn't make it either, I think we'll be going back to 4-2-3-1....we just don't have the players to implement the wing-back system.

    Unfortunately I can't see Arsenal winning but I seriously want them to do so. If they do will Wenger stay? Will he be allowed to?

    As it's the wife's birthday today I am planning to take her out for a meal in the a local pub that has the match on. I know I spoil her but she is worth it.

    She won't be pleased when she sees the football on telly :laugh:

    My fiancée wants to spend a cosy night together as it will be our last free night together until the wedding next Friday. I said no, it's the FA cup final today. She's being mardy now :shrug

    Kante is sloppy and off the pace so far, needs to be better

    Arsenal well up for the fight in attack and defence.

    Maybe being such underdogs has got their backs up with a point to prove.
