Star Returns, Ozil Out – Arsenal's Probable XI vs West Ham

Podolski Gunner ArsenalHaving gained only two points from the last three fixtures, Arsenal cannot really afford to drop more points against West Ham next if they are to keep up in the title race.
With Liverpool winning the last 4 games, the 7 point gap between them and Arsenal is now over as both teams sit on top of the premier league and merseysiders lead on goal difference.
Expect Arsenal to start a strong team against the Hammers despite the fact that they face a relatively difficult tie afterwards at Newcastle Away.
Lukas Podolski who has been out with a long term injury is back and the star is likely to return to the starting XI for the fixture against Sam Allardyce’s men.
Wilshere is still out with suspension and Ramsey was just average against Chelsea, still the player of the season so far may start alongwith Arteta.
Spanish international Santi Cazorla has been out of the lineup for the last two games. Ozil should be rested and last year’s best player should take his place playing behind Giroud.
Here is Arsenal’s probable XI vs West Ham.

    please wenger, save us from this shame. eight years without any trophy? and again you go on choosing Giroud in each and every game? this guy will score after ten missing chances? its time for him to worm the bench despite the fact that he is your country mate. And that is the only reason why you always line him up. he doesn’t have qualities of a top class striker. For Arsenal sake and success of our club he should worm the bench and if possible he should even go out for loan.

    Lineup : Szczesny , sagna , vermaelen , mertesacker, gibbs, arteta , ramsey , cazorla , walcott , podolski and bendtner ! SUBS : Fabianski, monreal , jenkinson , flamini , özil , rosicky , giroud !

    Wenger must buy a very strong striker such as Suarez and we will atleast win a trophy this season.

  4. chikezie says:

    It is glaring and crystal clear that Arsenal will not win any trophy if they don’t buy a super striker by January transfer window. Coming to Giroud, Arsene Wenger knows well and was very convinced that he is a big flopp, only because he was a french and that is why he continue using the flopp. It is high time Wenger call spade a spade and move swiftly for a superb striker comes January

    • Bernard A. Mwakisambwe says:

      Absolutelly, we will never get any trophy not only this year but forever unless Wenger quit the club.
      How can you win a trophy with the likes of Girloud and Bendtner upfront? Really it pains, from a diff of 7points clear to a nill now. We need to buy a top quality strickers, and do away with these flopies.

  5. Umar Aliyu Danjarka Sumaila says:

    Arsene wenger for you to save the club and your positin as a coach you need to sign a very sharp attacker, other wise the management of the team and the entire supporters would send you out from the club. Why are you playing this undesirable striker? Simply becouse he is your country men? It has now came to a situation that if a playeer is not from your country you will not sign him. Is Arsenal meant for frenchs?

  6. peter says:

    To be sincere leds & gtmen,giroud doesn’t suit Arsenal,let Mr wenger start `Deadly Shooter’-Podolski upfront & MAY BE giroud as a sub. but make sure he buys a CLASSY striker come January…if Arsenal is to win trophies.

  7. xavier fritz says:

    Arsenal don’t need a world class striker, if they can only sign swansea’s michu. they will be able to win a trophy coz we need a striker who can play along side giroud and not a striker who will demolish him in his own positition

    Even SilentStan knows we havent replaced rvp.. So if not,why not??AW!we know he iz a god there at Emirates.,Gooners lets pl(r)ay the god hears our top striker player(prayer)

    Its true giroud has wasted lots of chances upfront but all the same made some himself the role that wenger play Giroud is very hard even for your “top class” suarez. Giroud hold up play very well and bring his tèamates into play. Suarez on the other hand is a one man show and very selfish, tell these critics 2 years ago that ramsey is a world class play and they would call you bonkers. We do nid a striker to give giroud competition but i dnt want him to end up like chamakh,reyes,arshavin etc all because of fans bad mouthing.. I would be suprised even if ur world class signing fail.. Torres is a perfect example.

  11. Kennedy Ndege says:

    AW bought and plays Giroud because both are French. He should not be even on the bench tonight!

  12. ndumi says:

    Fans do not like bendner but the past 2 chances he got I think he did put a good peformance which he even scored at 1s so he deserves a start today, he will be surrounded by good supply from carzola/podolski/walcott and sagna. He will score agai.

  13. Linus says:

    I hate him but i guess adebayo is better that giroud n nicholas combined…would you welcome him back?
