Big part of me would just settle for a 1-0 defeat here.

Just have a feeling we could take a battering.

Not really expecting a result myself but more hoping for a plan - how are we going to set up against big sides away?

They don’t look unbeatable at all like, and I honestly wouldn’t put it past us to look alright here (before a milquetoast display against Southampton) but it would be wrong to expect a result here really given our history and current squad issues.

I’ve been saying lash mina in all week but it’s probably not ideal to just drop him into a struggling defence away to arsenal up against laca and auba, if it happens I’d be OK with it but it is a bit sink or swim.

He’s ublikely to drop Gylfi despite the clamour from certain subsections of the fan base, and we’re not sure if he can even play CM so I’d imagine he’ll be off the striker again.

The talk of richarlison up front feels a bit footy manager to me, and his performances in England up top have been poor apparently. I believe he wasn’t great in his sub appearance for brazil up top, v USA was it?

I’d keep him wide left where he is a fantastic player, and although I’d say dcl up top I think Marco will stick with the big man.

Wide right is my man off the list Walcott, don’t expect him to be here next year so enjoy him while you can if you like him.

And in cm it’s almost certainly the reheated leftovers of Morgan Schneiderlin and the empty space where Idrissa Gana Gueye should have been while arsenal break up the pitch.

However - I do think and hope he will go compact, and look to break into space with balls over mustafi and mert’, and I think that’ll be quite effective.

Think we'll get chances, don't think Silva sets up to defend or sit in any game, I think we'll have a few strange results this season- wouldn't be overly surprised if we took a point here with a score draw. Capable of going there and winning, but highly unlikely with our defence

Richarlison played centre-forward vs El Salvador and won a pen and scored twice.

However, I would still prefer him left, Calvert-Lewin central, Walcott right, and Bernard #10.

Wonít happen, though.

Conceded two sloppy goals. They're still a bit 'puff pastry' if you get at them.

Won’t happen, though.   

El Salvador like. Great finishes, no question about it, but you know. El Salvador innit.

I’m sure I’ve seen that when Marco played him through the middle for Watford his performances got worse.

Not entirely sure Bernard has ever played as a 10 despite looking like one, although you see people saying it a lot. I tried to press Paul Riley on it (can bernard be our open chance creator?) on twitter and although he responded, he didn’t answer really. No data available for
Ukraine from what I’ve seen either - he seems to have an awful lot of assists though.

I'm sadistically looking forward to this. Allowing myself to think that this will be the one where we click and set off on a run of results that strikes fear into the rest of the league, while knowing full well that we'll be lucky to lose to these by less than 3 goals. The contrary joys of being a blue.

I'm in favour of keeping Cenk up top, I've convinced myself he really is an instinctive goalscorer and it will happen. Not sure when total faith turns to total rejection but it probably isn't far away.

Just have a feeling these are open enough for us to do something unexpected and that, with Silva getting close to having his preferred 11 fit, we will surprise them. Words to be dined upon late Sunday afternoon.

Walcott to score first and celebrate wildly - endearing himself to certain sections of our support.

Arsenal to score 6 in response.

I'm gonna go through the Arsenal team and chuck a few quid on the one player who hasn't scored for a while

Gonna be a grim game this, but we have to play everyone twice over the course of the season, we have absolutely no way of getting out of this, so that is my logic in terms of just putting up with it.

Much rather see Richarlison given a go up top.

I like Tosun like and he is much better than what he is showing but his head is clearly not in it at the moment.

Give Bernard a decent run now to see what he can do, get him up to speed with this league.

Can't see this actually happening but it would be nice to see change to try and bounce back after that horror show last week.

The Blue 3/4 of Liverpool


Love a bit of a formation ;) Wonder what this 4-3-3 would be like:

Pickford


Zouma ---------- Mina
Kenny (SC) ------------------------------------- Digne


Gomes --------- Sigurdsson

Bernard


Walcott ------------------------------ Richarlison
