Should Unai Emery Pick These Three Players Against Chelsea? by mightyfacts: 7:07pm On May 15
Two weeks today we will face off against Chelsea in the Europa League final all the way out in Azerbaijan and the conversations have already started about which team Arsenal should put out against the Blues.

Earlier today I spoke with a couple of friends about that exact subject and being passionate Gooners we spoke our minds and were not afraid to give our opinions to each other and as you may have guessed we had mixed views on whether Mesut Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Bernd Leno should play.

I will state up front that I am no to all three, I feel that Cech deserves to stay in goal and I am no more nervous with him between the sticks than Leno. I do not trust Ozil to play his best game and I do not think that Unai Emery will either and Mkhitaryan is simply not in form and I feel he would be a distraction due to politics.

However, both my friends thought I was mad to exclude Ozil, they feel he is a big game player and that he is made for this game against Chelsea, they are of the opinion that his creativity and passing will open up the Blues defence but I countered that Emery had him as an unused sub when we beat them at the Emirates and so why would he then all of a sudden have confidence in him in Baku in such an important game?

As for Mkhitaryan, it was a unanimous agreement he should not play based on form and neither of them cared who was in goal though did agree that Cech will play at his very best to put one over on his former club.

So, we all agreed Mkhitaryan should not play, passionately split on Ozil and not really bothered about Leno.

What do you think? Should we play Ozil or even Mkhitaryan and what about Leno, should he get the nod over Cech?

Let us know in the comments below.
