--------Sczcesny
--Sagna--Mert--Kos--Monreal
---------Wilshere--Arteta
--------------Cazorla
--Walcott----Giroud---Podolski

If Koscielny's not available, either play Miquel or shift Sagna to CB with Jenkinson out wide. Anybody but Squillaci.

Cech
Azpilicueta-Ivanovic-Terry-Cole
Luuiz/Ramires-Lampard
Mata-Oscar-Hazard
Ba if healthy

Idk if Luiz is still injured.

Would like to see 433 but seems impossible without Mikel or Luiz.

Hazard back is a good start. The last few games shows he's very important. With Mikel and Moses back soon they will hopefully regain that form they had before. Everything fell apart once those 3 were out. So I'm giving Rafa the benifit of the doubt since he doesn't have much depth to work with. But a good manager would adapt.

Hopefully when Mikel comes back Rafa can see that he can be creative and tell him to not be so conservative with his passing.

Think Bale is class but the way he gimmicks C. Ronaldo is so f***ing cringey.

Sissoko is so good. Think AW might have brought him in had it not been for his preference for Capoue.

Arsenal team v Sunderland: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Arteta, Wilshere, Ramsey, Cazorla, Walcott, Giroud

Arsenal substitutes: Mannone, Jenkinson, Miquel, Diaby, Rosicky, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski

Odd decision to bench Podolski, he's been superb so far in the second half of the season. Strong bench, it's what won us the game last season here. Miquel on the bench <3 Hate it when we play at the SoL. Need the three points.

Ramsey or Wilshere to play holding role with Arteta?

Probably Wilshere-Arteta with Ramsey (hopefully) playing as CAM or out wide with Cazorla CAM.
