It’s a theoretical lol… they don’t exist anywhere. My point was that it is way more important to me that we secure first place and title than it is to go further in FA Cup (and I LOVE the FA Cup) or even win the FA Cup.
The number of times we are genuinely in position to win title are so diminishingly small over the last 15 years - the FA Cup is a crapshoot and we are always in with a shout in a given year.
I definitely want to see Trossard from the start.
Martinelli could use a breather, we wont miss him that much considering his most recent form. Trossard is in perfect form atm, even withouth too much training with the team he should absolutely be ready to deliver already considering his experience and recent form.
A good opportunity to see what he offers and also for him to bond with the rest of the team before we use him in the crucial PL games (every game left to the end of the season).
As @SRCJJ said, I don’t expect us to rotate too much considering we have 8 days until our next game.
Arsenal’s stars have arrived in Manchester for their crunch FA Cup clash with Manchester City.
Seemingly not taking a backseat with the FA Cup, Mikel Arteta has named a strong squad with Oleksandr Zinchenko, Thomas Partey and Bukayo Saka all among those pictured on Thursday evening. Emile Smith Rowe was not spotted.
Nice, so now Jesus, Nelson, Elneny and Smith Rowe are out. Anyone else?
