How Arsenal will be 5 points behind Liverpool come sat

I find it very hard to be positive these days about Arsenal but today I've decided I'm going to make a real effort. I thought to myself, the media, football players have all written us off for the title, we win on saturday - we're only 5 points behind the reds. I remember Jose Mourinho famously saying once "Vhat's two poings? It's just two meches, and vhat's two mech, nating." (Translation - "what's two points? It's just two matches, and what's two matches? nothing."I very rarely agree with the motivational speaking translator but he had a point then, and the same point applies now - for the gunners. Beating Liverpool won't be easy. If we fly out the traps early, show we mean business like we havent done in years then we've got a chance, providing our players are in the positions they can do most damage and are most dangerous in. If they are not, and if we relax and play the ball across the park along the half way line then they'll sniff us out and batter us - like Villa did. This would be my team selection and formation for saturday:-----------------Almunia-----------------Sagna-----Gallas------Djourou------Clichy------------------Song----------------------------Denilson------Fabregas---------------------------Diaby----------------------------Van Persie----Adebayor---------- 4-4-2 DiamondFor me, everyone is comfortably in their correct position with this formation. The diamond will allow Clichy and Sagna to bomb on as they love to do down the flanks and provide necessary width too. The system compliments everybody. Van Persie can drift in behind Ade, Diaby can penetrate through the middle like he did against Fenerbache in the 1st leg, Denilson can be given a free role to pick out the delicious passes he's capable of, Cesc the same with his creativity unlocking that frail Liverpool defence, Song holding and protecting the back four. It's the best system for the players we have available right now. They've got to play in their correct positions. I honestly can't see Liverpool beating us if we play those players with that system. Harry Redknapp was right when he said it's unbelievable how many managers play their players out of position, and I'm sorry to say Arsene would be right up there on that list. Makes a big difference. Just ask the Sven England team that lost to Northern Ireland. I'm nobody to tell the boss how to pick his players and formation, but as a fan, I'm inclined not to be a yes man and agree with everything he does. My Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Liverpool What does everyone else think?
