Arsenal play a 5 4 1 out of possession. They do drop deep when not on the ball, I'm not sure son is the right choice at CF, imo.

I'd probably go with Bissouma for this one, he's only a problem against low block countering teams. He's good as a pivot if we're playing out the back. Just lacks the ability to be a sole #6 when we're playing a high line with 2 fullbacks ahead of him imo.

Vic
Porro Romero VDV Davies
Bissouma
Sarr Maddison
Johnson Richarlison Son​

I think Kulusevski simply has to play, we can’t have all three of the forwards being players who turn the ball over easily.

I actually agree with you. However, I feel we need to play richy as arsenal will drop into a 541 formation out of possession.

With their height and success at set pieces/corners, I'd try this - fear the worst and hope for the best..

Vicario
Porro
Romero
Dragusin
VDV
Bissouma
Bentancur
Maddison
Kulusevski
Richarlison
Son

Gives us some decent options off the bench as well, especially when Maddison has picked up an early yellow for arguing with the ref...

Son left wing really won’t work imo and will also badly expose our left flank as he simply hasn’t got the energy to cover out wide anymore.

Nevermind the fact that in possession he simply doesn’t work out wide in this system either.

If we don’t want Son striker in this match then he should be on the bench. I say that as one of his biggest fans.

...then I'd be inclined to bench him. I feel terrible for saying that. Put Brennan on the left maybe over Timo 🤷‍♂️

I think he will go Kulu Richy and Son.

Johnson and Werner for later in the game when its stretched.
