I could see a rare 3-4-3 appearence here. Or a formation change of some sort. Being without both Jorginho and surely Mount who are so crucial to the way we play is gutting. 

Palace are a real stubborn side so far this season and they always cause us a headache in one way or another. I feel like we absolutely need the 3 points here with City away up after that. Let's be honest, the way we defended today City are likely to tear us apart. We risk letting our rivals right back on to us if we lose both of these next 2.

As was mentioned above, Palace are a side that will let us have the bulk of possession and play quite defensively. For that reason it may be wise to play 3-4-3 so we can attack them better from wide areas to stretch them. Get Reece and Emerson/Alonso overlapping and bombing forward to support our attack. Just overload them.

I very much like this idea especially if Mount is out too. Being without both Jorgi and Mount, who are paramount to our game, might be too big of a risk to try and go with the same style. 3-4-3 has worked for us before and I don't see why Kante and Kovacic can't do a job there as a pair, chuck Azpi at RCB and allow Reece to bomb forward and put crosses in. Think that could work very well.

If Arsenal's end goal is to simply qualify for the Champions League, then they might not sack Emery just yet if they lose at Leicester. They still got the Europa League as another option.

Haven't they already struggled with the farmers in these early rounds? Nah, can't see them sticking with him if they lose this weekend. They risk the fans creating a toxic atmosphere again. Be very interesting to see what they do to replace him.

They've dropped only 2 points after 4 games in the group so far and need just 1 point to qualify for the knockout stage.

Okay, it was Wenger but they took forever before finally deciding to part ways with him last year. Will not be surprising if they just wait it out again as long as their goals are still achievable. Kroenke and co. have never bothered about the fans and all that stuff. They aren't like Roman or even Ed Woodward.

Very surprised Azpi isn't playing. Even more so when Jorginho is out too. Let's hope we blow them away with the attacking options we have and two full backs who are capable of getting up and down.
