Pre-Arsenal Overnight Open Thread

Laurence Griffiths

Five questions to pass the time as we wait for kickoff from The Emirates.

1) Assuming Brendan Rodgers sticks to three at the back, who starts?

2) Does a cleared-for-duty Philippe Coutinho start the match, come on as a substitute, or stay on the bench?

3) Inverted triangle midfield? Octagon? Pentagram?

4) Does Rodgers use all three substitutions?

5) Who scores the first goal?

Bonus: In a plan that was obviously several seasons in the making, a very shrewd Arsene Wenger signed gentle giant Per Mertesacker, and chased that signing with Lukas Podolski the following season, before honing in on the true prize of Mesut Özil. The Mertesacker signing was, conspiracy theorists suggest, his plot to SIGN ALL THE GERMANS™. If you could bring a current German international to Anfield, who would it be?
