Time for Pep to make the change?

Time for Pep to make the change?

This is going to sound arrogant, but I think we could absolutely embarrass Arsenal tomorrow night and I cannot wait to see how it pans out.

When games like this follow a cup final you`d normally expect the losing side to be on the warpath and demanding revenge, but that lot doesn`t seem anything like that, and so I think we`ll double up.

Pep and the boys will obviously be more professional and refuse to be complacent and that`s largely why I see us scoring a lot of goals particularly if Gabriel Jesus starts - which I feel should be the case.

Though it`s a big game on paper the difference in class and mental strength between the sides is huge and the atmosphere at their place is going to be toxic.

We should try and go for their throats early on, then, and I`d play Gab potentially alongside Sergio up top in a different system to what we`ve done recently.

Aguero, of course, has a great record against the Gunners and will want to add to that but I think now is the time to get Jesus back up to speed ahead of the run-in.

We`ve got the best striking options in the league when they`re both fit but the Brazilian hasn`t played much football thanks to his lengthy recent lay-off.

And, in a game where the pressure is all on Arsenal not making a mistake or winding up their fans, Jesus is the quick thinking forward to pounce on anything loose in the box.

It`s up to the boss if he decides that he wants to play Aguero alongside him and open things up but, regardless of that, I think it`s time we start showing that our own arsenal is back to full strength.

Would you play Jesus tomorrow? Let me know in the poll!
