We managed to pick up all three points on Saturday afternoon against Norwich, despite all the controversy which surrounded that victory. Hey, they can complain and talk about the penalty incident, and third goal being offside until the cows come home but at the end of the day we sit third and are looking good to finish in the top four this season.
We only have six games left to play and next on our list is Everton, a side who are also fighting to qualify for the Champions League.
David Moyes’ side sit sixth in the table, four points behind us with the same amount of games left to play. Needless to say, this is a massive game for both clubs. If we bag all three points tomorrow night then we need not worry about Everton catching us. However, should The Toffees spring a surprise and beat us then we could well be in a pickle and many, including myself, will start to worry about our chances of finishing in the top four.
We have been in scintillating form as of late, especially at The Emirates, picking up 16 points of a possible 18 and unbeaten in our last four in the Premier League. While Everton have only lost one of their last six Premier League games.
So it’s a game which will see two sides in great form go for it, and rightly so.
Big game and big players will need to stand up and be counted for. If we win this, I can’t see us not qualifying for the Champions League next season.
So who should start tomorrow against Everton tomorrow night at The Emirates?
Well this is the starting 11 I’d like to see Arsene Wenger put out:
Sagna Koscielny Vermaelen Monreal
Lukasz Fabianski to remain in goal, if he’s fit, as he is in good form, while I’d like to see Nacho Monreal come in for Kieran Gibbs, just to solidify our defence against a potent Everton attack.
If he is fit and raring to go then Jack Wilshere should start alongside Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta.
Santi Cazorla should continue on the wing, while I’d like to see Gervinho dropped for Lukas Podolski – he deserves a chance.
Olivier Giroud to spearhead our attack.
If things aren’t going our way then we can always call on Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to add some bite and pace to our forward-line.
So, who do you guys reckon should start for us against Everton?
