How Arsenal should approach the Milan game

Image for How Arsenal should approach the Milan game

The last two results against Spurs and Liverpool have been a real confidence booster for the fans, players and boss alike. However, if the trend were to continue for at least five more games, then results and performances must match those of the previous two.

There is every reason to be optimistic though, ahead of the Milan tie on tomorrow. The Serie A side will most probably be coming into this game over confident, almost swallowing their sanity. But, like spurs, they might be in ā€˜4ā€™ a rude awakening!

However, due to the injury list mounting up, Iā€™m afraid Arsene Wenger might have to alter his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation. In my opinion, a 4-1-2-3 would be the best system to go, with Alex song playing just above the back four, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain partnering Tomas Rosicky in the central midfield above Song, while Gervinho and Theo Walcott occupy the wing with Robin van Persie leading the line.

Later on in the game, a 4-4-1-1 formation should be adopted with either Park Chu-Young or Marouane Chamakh coming on to lead the line, with Van Persie dropping down at in hole. Rosicky then partners Song in the midfield and the two who would have remained from the substitution from either one of Walcott, Gervinho or The Ox should drift wide. This I believe would be the best way to deal with the game tomorrow night, especially considering our injury list.

    Forget Milan and concentrate on the rest of the EPL, especially Newcastle next Monday. We want no additional injuries chasing a miracle. A minimum of 4 goals WITH NO REPLY is simply not on.
    We are in 4th place…..amazing considering the shambles only a few months ago. Don’t let’s spoil it. šŸ˜„
