Once again, it looks like its down to me to start this one off. I'd be more than happy for someone else to over. Saturday's result was disappointing as a consequence of poor finishing, poor officiating and Nick Pope. If Robertson's reaction at the end of that match is any guide, the players were furious and we can expect a reaction against the Gunners. Jones and Williams did well against Burnley but I think this is a game for the more established players. Milner, Henderson and Matip are out so my starting eleven would be:
Trent Gomez VVD Robertson
Keita Fabinho Wijnaldum
Salah Firmino Mane
Arsenal have become more solid under Artete but watching them against Spurs last time out I thought they looked edgy every time Spurs attacked, Arsenal had more of the ball but Spurs were always just as likely to score and it was they who took the points. Its never an easy game, and a draw has been seen as a decent result in the past, but given Arsenal's decline and our need for 3 points in our bid for the record, I would be disappointed with anything but a win for the Reds.
