Lacazette, Aubameyang, Mkhitaryan and Ozil to start in strongest 4-3-3 Arsenal vs Everton XI

Arsenal News HQ brings you the latest Arsenal news, match analysis, transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from trusted media outlets around the World.

Arsenal have been pretty active during this winter’s transfer window, but the off-pitch rumours have clearly affected the team’s displays on the court where the Gunners have continued to struggle on Tuesday shockingly falling 3-1 to the rock-bottomed Swansea City side at Liberty Stadium.

The top four positions are now as many as eight points away for Arsene Wenger and his men and the Champions League football still remains an illusion for the North London heavyweights.

The hosts will be desperate to bounce back and try and keep ground on the top four likes this Saturday when they host Everton in one of the Matchday’s most interesting ties.

The London crowd will thus have to chance to see Theo Walcott on the pitch (the sight they’ve scarcely witnessed in this season), but this time in Everton’s shirt as the English winger will be highly motivated to show his class against his former teammates.

Walcott made a dream start for the new team as his brace (in the second appearance) made all the difference between Everton and Leicester City on Wednesday evening at Goodison (2-1 win for the Toffees).

The team led by Sam Allardyce has thus picked up the first win after seven consecutive failures. The victory has kept the Toffess in the top half of the league ladder but they are still miles away from challenging Europa League positions.

Allardyce now has a strong firepower on display up front with the likes of Cenk Tosun and Theo Walcott joining the team and we would not be surprised to see Everton causing troubles to the vulnerable defensive line of Arsenal’s on Saturday.

  1. Ramsey must understand, the days of roaming into the box are over. he must revert back to his Cardiff days quarterback style pin point passer, never lose the ball cheaply. together with wilshere and sometimes Xhaka, they must rule the midfield. leave the attacking to Ozil and Miki, occasionally do combinations with them, while putting Aubamayang up top ALONE. Laca must now pull back into Okazaki style role, still threatening to goals , just a little variation.
    IWOBI, wake up your ideas ! he’s got the flair and skill of cause its evident, but also very flimsy and lack the steel that his uncles and friends used to possess. Okocha, Kanu, Finidi all skillful and with flair but the mental toughness and focus are most important. give Iwobi 2 years to grow up and search his roots.

    Please do not even attempt to convert Auba or Laca into a winges that’ll destroy them.

  2. There is actuall a pettern that involves dropping Granit Xhaka, a player Wenger has not dropped yet but his performances indicate he should be dropped. The pattern is

    There is concerns that if Lacazette and Auba play together, there will be no one coming from the bench for Giorud like rescue. People are forgetting there is Welbeck, Iwobi, Reiss Nelson, Edward Nketiah who can sit on the bench and come in when one of the two needs to rest and so one does not have fears that after using the two there no one popping from the bench who can play super sub…If Aube or Even Lacazette is not able to play, you would be surprised at Nketiah and Nelson…but even Welbeck and Iwobi playing with another attacker may just become very good.







    It would be a bold line-up if Arsene went for it but look at the advantages. Lacazette is aready showing great link up play with his colleagues and can play the second striker. Aubameyang at the CF role but biased to the left so he can take advantage of the width in the left to initiate attacks and stretch the defenders, Lacazette plays second CF but biased to the right so he too can stretch the defenders. Ozil and Mkhitaryan play a rear but potent attacking Mid-fielding duet, and can proceed to take chances and score. Ozil has already shown he can get the goals.

    Kolasinac and Ramsey provide the width but can cut inside and offer assistance to Wilshere in the Anchorage role. There will be no need for Bellerin and Monreal to spend too much time attacking and can stay back to defend 80% of the time. Cech…he needs to be replaced but that may only be in the summer. Xhaka should be retrained in the new Arsenal pattern and must find his way back in, by displacing someone…
