The English Premier League is truly living up to the hype of it being the best football league in the World.The match day six of the English Premier League season started yesterday with four amazing fixtures,West Ham held Manchester City to a one all draw,Fulham scored one,but conceded twice,as Crystal Palace won Fulham by two goals to one,Manchester United and Chelsea played out a goalless draw and Liverpool fought back to defeat Sheffield United by two goals to one.These are the results from yesterday's matches.
Arsenal would be in action later today,when they take on Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City at the Emirates stadium. The match is scheduled to start by 8:15pm,Nigerian time.
Arsenal are on the back of a win,following their victory over Rapid Vienna in the UEFA Europa League last mid week,but they are on the back of a defeat in the English Premier League, given than they lost to Manchester City last weekend. Mikel Arteta would be looking to guide his boys back to winning ways,so they could compete for honours this time around.
Today,they would be up against a Leicester City's side,who has great full backs that can deliver pinpoint crosses into the opposition's territory and they are also a team who play a very fast counter attacking football,with attackers like Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes.
I have opined that Arsenal should forget about winning Leicester City, except Arsenal manger,Mikel Arteta use any of these two lineups.
The first is a 4:3:3 formation;
DEFENCE:Hector Bellerin,Gabriel Magalhaes,David Luiz and Kieran Tierney from right to left
MIDFIELD:Thomas Partey should be used ast the holding midfielder,he should be flanked by Granit Xhaka to his right and Dani Ceballos to his left
ATTACK:Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang should play from the left flank of the attack, Willian from the right and Alexandre Lacazette should play as the centre forward.
This would be a lineup for Mikel Arteta to use,if he wants to play possessive football against Leicester City.This lineup would allow Arsenal full backs,Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney to operate at full strength and also deliver crosses into Leicester City's territory.
The second is a 3:4:3 formation;
DEFENCE:The defence trio of Gabriel Magalhaes,David Luiz and Kieran Tierney
MIDFIELD:Bukayo Saka should play as the left wing-back,Hector Bellerin as the right wing-back,while Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka should play as the two centre midfielders
ATTACK:Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang,Alexandre Lacazette and Willian from left to right.
This lineup would allow Arsenal to absorb pressure from Leicester City,as they can change to a back five,with Saka and Hector Bellerin dropping back,when Arsenal is without the ball.
This lineup can also allow Arsenal to hit Leicester City on a quick counter attack,if they do soak up the pressure very well,as the 'Foxes' can be caught under possession,which would allow Arsenal hit long balls to either Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang or Willian to chase,which can result in a goal.
Please share and lay your opinions regarding the match,thanks.
