I think Mertesacker needs replacing with a top boy defender, a cliche to say but a 'leader', someone who can stop everyones little heads going down. Monreal has come on well I thought he was dogshit 2 years ago but like him now.

Would be nice to have a defender who could score from a corner, getting a corner doesn't even seem like an advantage to Arsenal.

Id say Monreal is the best LB on form in the league atm

Arsenal already have technically the best squad in the league, Arsene just doesn't know how to win anymore. They had the perfect opportunity to kick on after SAF went but didn't so there's no chance of him doing it now. If you keep losing in the same way year for 10 years then it's more than just not having a leader on the pitch.

Can't argue with the City squad surely ?

Arsenal don't have a CF ? Walcott is awful in that role and is about 7 seasons too late. Giroud it seems won't get picked again

Difference is basically Aguero and Silva but there's no reason why Sanchez and Ozil can't be as good in a better system surely? I'd have Walcott over Nasri, Navas and Giroud is better than Bony. Def and mid not that much difference either.

Fucking hell Arsenal win against a shocking Man Utd team - worst for years - and everyone on a hype - happens every year. Will be same outcome at end of seasons.

Masterblaster talking bollocks. How many arsenal players would get into city's first 11? 2? 3? I'd have Sanchez and Cech that's it.

So Demichels/Mangala > Koscielny? Sterling > Ozil? Fernando/inho > Cazorla?

I said they're TECHNICALLY better than City player for player not that they're a better team.

You can't compare a player like Fernandinho with cazorla though, can you? I'd rather have city's options in cazorlas position, yes, and would much rather give a spot in my team to Fernandinho. He's been good this season, arsenal are crying out for a Fernandinho.

Maybe you have a point with koscielny but I wouldn't swap sterling for Ozil, silva does what Ozil does and he's better and far more consistent.

Ozil creates way more chances than Silva. Aguero would score more with Ozil behind him.

I'd only want Kompany, Aguero, Toure and possibly De Bruyne in a combined XI

Ozil better than Silva is the worst thing I've heard all week. Kolarov is a mile ahead of Monreal, also. This is coming from a Utd follower. Darmian is a better player also, even though he had a shit game on Sunday.

The reason Arsenal are not as good is because they don't have a CF that can turn around a game like Aguero can. Or play a different way when 'plan A' isn't working. City also have subs that can turn games, Arsenal don't really.

How anyone rates Kolarov is beyond me. Monreal's had a good 12 months, still shit though.

City take Koscielny and Sanchez they'd run away with it, Arsenal take Toure and Aguero they'd run away with it, everything else e.g. Silva vs Ozil is splitting hairs really.
