Arsenal are at home on Matchday 3 against Newcastle United. The Gunners have not suffered successive defeats in the 47 Premier League in 47 outings. Newcastle United need a victory to record their best start to a Premier League season in 13 years, but to achieve that they will have to become only the second club to defeat the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium. Something’s gotta give…
Cesc Fabregas is back for the first time this season in the League and that should make the match all the more interesting to the Gooners. I would like to see him partner Denilson in the centre of midfield. With Nasri and Walcott on the wings, the midfield will possibly look ok. With Walcott you never know if he is gonne fire or now. I hope he continues on from the last match against Twente FC.
The back four should be the more regular combination of Sagna-Toure-Gallas-Clichy unless Wenger feels that Toure can be tried out as a substitute in a holding Midfielder role in the second half and start with Djourou. Anything is possible but I guess he will go for stability and stick to the four mentioned above.
Van Persie and Adebayor should start upfront with Bendtner set to make a super sub role. Bendtner might start matches with the lower ranked teams in the league than the heavy weights. There is no clear news on when Rosicky might be back which is worrying and I want to see him in action. I don’t even remember the last match he played.
Lets hope Nasri’s home scoring form continues and we win comfortably rather than carve a edgy 1-0 win. Here is for 3 points and as many goals 🙂
