SEVEN Arsenal Stars Ruled Out of City Clash

Arsenal will be without SEVEN of their star performers for the Premier League tie with Manchester City at Eastlands this Satuday.

It caps off an extraordinarily bad end to the week for Arsene Wenger’s side who’s league form has been worsening in recent months, losing four times against the ‘smaller sides’ as well as even more atrocious defensive performances against Stoke and Aston Villa.

Then, Theo Walcott dislocated his shoulder whilst on International Duty for England with doctors confirming the young starlet is likely to be out for 3 months or more.

And of course, to really make things a whole lot worse, Kolo Toure came back from Africa with a calf strain despite being told not to risk it.

There is some good news though, Robin van Persie returns on the back of a double against Sweden for Holland. The 26-year-old will be welcomed into the team with open arms after completing his 3-match suspension.

Players out for Manchester City game:

Bacary Sagna – Ankle
Theo Walcott – Dislocated Shoulder
Emmanuel Eboue – Knee
Eduardo da Silva – Broken Leg
Tomas Rosicky – Hamstring
Kolo Toure – Calf
Cesc Fabregas Suspension

Below, you can see our predicted line-up for Saturday’s game below, we’d like to know who you think will play – so give your views in the comments section!

Almunia
Djourou – Gallas – Silvestre – Clichy
Nasri – Song – Denilson – Diaby
Adebayor – van Persie

i hope Ramsey gets in in front of Song. I also hope Wilshere gets 30 minutes. Possible?

why djourou at RB? that whould be a somewhat hopeless pick, when we have Gallas and Silvestre in the middle, and both of them have played as back before…. but on the positive side, because of midfield worries, Wenger can’t put Song at RB this time….

No-ones really played that well this season but djourou has been the pick of the bunch so far for me in the CC. He’s quality in the air and doesnt pussy out of any challenges so i hope he gets a starting birth at CB. I wouldnt mind seeing Fabianski get a go infront of Almunia. I would like to see this team walk out at Eastlands on saturday:

Fabianski

Silvestre Gallas Djourou Clichy

Song

Nasri Ramsey Diaby

Van Persie Adebayor

Fabianski v Almunia no contest Fab is fab and Almunia awful _ why do so many fans not see this.

Vela v Ade/Nic B again no contest Vela is class the other two are planks with Nic B effectively Ade light !

Djourou v Anyone at the back -Djourou is the only one good in the air and is skillful on the floor

So I agree with starface except Vela upfront

I think “Silvestre” is or big fucking problem..he is very SHAKKY at the back and not that good with High balls.. He never looked solid or confident since he joined us, he’s allways behind players doesn’e like 2 move or make a challenge, Djourou and Song are much better than him.
I hope Le Boss is going 2 drop him and let him Hit The Road in January becaue he’s just not really fit 2 be an Arsenal Fc player.

Almunia has been outstanding for the past two seasons, yes he’s made the odd error, but what ‘keeper hasn’t?

People were even talking him up as a potential captain, it’s Gooners looking for a scapegoat – once again!.

Again, probably won’t happen but I’d love to see Wenger try something different and go all out against City (which, based on some current performances, they seem to have difficulty dealing with). I’d go with:

Almunia

Silvestre Gallas Djourou Clichy

Diaby Denilson Ramsey

Van Persie Vela

Adebayor

Nope, he completed his 3-match suspension when we played Villa on Saturday (it covers Carling Cup as well because it’s a domestic comp).

RVP is BACK ya’ll, he just finished a 3 match ban.
I can’t wait to see him scoring a ‘screamer’ against man c on saterday.

WHY ARE SOME OF U MORONS PUTTING SILVESTRE AT RB? WOULDN’T GALLAS BE THE IDEAL CANDIDATE AS HE IS VERSATILE IN DEFENCE!!! WHY ARE SOME OF YOU ALSO CLAIMING ALMUNIA IS SHIT AND YOU’D LIKE TO SEE FABIANSKI AHEAD OF HIM, come on AFC fans, stop been fickle!!! ALMUNIA IS A GR8 KEEPER, YES HE’S MADE A FEW MISTAKES, BUT EVEN VAN DER SAR AND REINA HAVE MADE THE ODD MISTAKE. IT’S OUR DEFENDERS WHO ARE TO BLAME, EXPECIALLY GALLAS!!! HE LACKS LEADERSHIP AND CHARACTER AND SIMPLY NEEDS TO BE SOLD END OF SEASON. RAMSEY SHOULD PARTNER DENILSON IN MIDFIELD.… Read more »

GALLAS HAS TO PLAY RIGHT BACK. DJOUROU/SONG AREN’T CAPABLE OF MARKING ROBINHO ON THE WING IN SPACE.

Although he is versatile he is shocking at right back. I hate to say it but i think Wenger will play song right back. Big mistake against Robinho.

Almunia

Song Djourou Gallas Clichy

Nasri Diaby Denilson v.Persie

Bendtner Adebayor

hope he play with Vela and adebayor or rvp cause bendtner play very bad against aston villa he didnt do anything maybe vela can make it better and in the middle maybe they could try with merida or wilshere,nasri,ramsey, and diaby or denilson, in the back are alot of troubles but maybe with gibbs and clichy, djourou and gallas or mikael could make a very good match in other case i wouldnt use nicklas cause he play really badly in the last 2 games…… hope arsenal win mancity.

I think the reason that whenever Gallas/Silvestre/Toure are partnered in the centre, we look unstable, is because we don’t have the right balance. Which is why, I thought, that Djourou would’ve been the answer. His style is the perfect foil to any of those three, much like Senderos was. We need a stopper and a tough tackler (to use the PES lingo, lol). Look at United or Chelsea, they have the best examples of a defence. Vidic/Ferdinand or Terry/Carvalho (I think?) form a rock at the back whilst managing to have decent aattacking full backs (with the exception of Brown… Read more »

I hope Djourou plays at CB. Time for him to get familiar at that position as stomachless Gallas’s replacement.

i have gone through all AFC supporters comments and i have realised you dont know football you just suport it. if you make Djourou and Clichy to be near @ other you will stop that wing and no one will closs their . if you make Ebue and galas to be near each other you will close down any player on that wing not sagna and galas , the day Eboue returns back to that no 2 arsenal fc will jubilate . Now since Eboue is not their , Make Galas to be no 2 , and Song to be… Read more »

AW is going to play with just 1 striker! open your eyes!
denilson is not dm, but AW loves him in some reason,who knows why.
i think this is the line up
almunia,
song,
gallas,
silvestre,
clichy,
diaby,
denilson,
ramsey,
nasri,
van persie,
adebayor

The best line up… yes i know toure doesnt play defensive mid. but hes the only person i can think of with the power and aggresion to protect the defense. If we play ramsey and denlison in the middle we will not control the midfield
Almuia
Silvestre Djourou Gallas Clichy
Ramsey Toure Denlison Narsi
Vela Adebayor
Bench. RVP, Wilshire, Eboue, Bentdner, song and Fabianski

Tony Akers

Dont fuck about with prats like Song Team should be Almunia, Gibbs Djourou Sylvestre Cliche(capt) Wilshire Bishoff Ramsey Nasri Vela Van Persie, the others have all had there chance and Fucked it up. Gallas should never wear an arsenal shirt again, and if Wenger thinks differenly then SACK HIM AS WELL. Arsenal are bigger than anybody Even Wenger we were great before he came and will be great after he has gone.
