I really should keep a tally of how many “time to get back on track” intros I’ve written, but on the other hand, that number is going to be dispiritingly large, so maybe I’ll just move on. Arsenal need three points to keep their ever-fainter championship hopes alive. Welcome to Arsenal in February!
There are rumors. So many rumors. Rumors that Wenger is going to drop Petr Cech. Rumors that Wenger is going to drop Mesut Özil. Will he do either? I don’t know. But this is as unsettled a time as I’ve seen in Arsene Wenger’s recent tenure, and tomorrow’s team sheet may reflect that.
Hector Bellerin is still out after suffering a blow to the head, but Mohamed Elneny is back from AFCON and available.
Cech, Monreal, Koscielny, Mustafi, Gabriel, Elneny, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Özil, Walcott, Alexis, Welbeck
