Ok, let’s get the bad things out the way first. There are two issues from yesterday’s game.
The first one was that buried in the selection, was Auba. Our only fit striker, he is imperative to our strategy because we don’t create many chances and he’s the most clinical sharp shooter in the world at the minute… so why would you risk him away at a bang average German team in the first game of the group stages?

Well hello my darlings.
What’s new? Not much. Mesut Ozil has been ‘rested’ for the Frankfurt match. This is Emery.
“We are playing a lot of matches and I want to use different players, and also have some rotation in the first 11 and in the 19 players in the squad for [Frankfurt],” Emery said.
Unai Emery is like one of those rich billionaire folk that falls off a boat in a hooker accident. The family are waiting for the major payouts only to find out the whole wealth game is a fucking charade.
Arsenal sit 19th in the league for pressing, almost twice as ineffective as the leaders (Leicester I think).
