Arsenal - Standard Liege: Half Time Thoughts

Arsenal - Standard Liege (2-0 HT)
Samir Nasri (35')
Denilson (45')

5 changes were made for this game. Eboue comes in for Sagna, while Gibbs is back to reclaim his left-back position from Traore. Denilson comes in for Ramsey to play alongside Fabregas, while Vela was given a surprise start as central forward, flanked by Arshavin and Nasri. This looks a more balanced team compared to the previous lineup.

Arsenal played their usual flowing football, with Denilson, Arshavin, Nasri and Fabregas very lively throughout the game. Vela seemed relatively quiet, hope that he will be more aggresive in the second half. Eboue also played well, defensively and especially, offensively, providing attack on the right flank.

Not sure whether Gallas will continue to play in the 2nd half after that awful collision with Arshavin. He never felt comfortable since then. Would love to see Walcott in action in the 2nd half.
