International Break is finally over and I’m SO excited to see midfielder Santi Cazorla back on the Emirates pitch. Gooners everywhere are anxious to see what Cazorla & Özil accomplish together! Sagna’s returning from the injured list to defend with the BFG. Laurent Koscielny’s on with Flamini, Gibbs, and Arteta. Giroud and Wilshere take their usual spotlights, while Ros, Rambo(!), Monreal, Vermaelen, Fabianski, Bendtner & Jenks(!) are on the bench. Arteta is captaining and our vastly improved Szczęsny is in goal.
Norwich City is currently ranked 18 in the Premiere League, but as we discovered in our last match v West Brom, we can’t underestimate how hungry some of these clubs are to move up in the ranks.
