I would love Auba and Laca to play up top together, as a front pair.

Will it work?

Why not?
We have nothing to lose.
If Liverpool and Chelsea averaged only 2pts a game between now and the end of the season we would need to take 34 pts from our last 13 games to make top 4, 11 wins 1 draw just 1 more defeat? Not going to happen.
We can try what we like in the league because we ain't going down and we ain't going to get a champions league place other than winning the europa league, we literally have nothing to lose in the league games now.

Good point mate.

I can't see Wenger playing 2 up front, he hasn't done so since the days of 4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1.
Could Aubameyang simply replace Sanchez on the left, with Mkhitaryan on the right and Ozil in the middle?
My own opinion is that Lacazette will start up front tomorrow, with Aubameyang on the bench, With matches coming thick and fast up till the end of the season, I believe Wenger will rotate the pair, especially as they are both relatively new to the physical demands of PL football.

Probably not tomorrow but at some point all four should be tried, ozil, myki, auba, laca, with welbeck included as well in the four somewhere. They are all mobile and can play various roles. I think it is inevitable we go 442 or 352 at some point, fitting all said players but maybe not at the start.

That's the problem though Steve.
We have quality players upfront in Auba, Laca, Ozil and Mhiki. Play them together instead of all this rotate rubbish.

Did Wenger rotate Henry, Pires, Bergkamp and Ljungberg?
Nope, he played them together.

Agree dags, i will be deeply disturbed if iwobi starts ahead of any of those. don't mind welbeck but not iwobi.

Yes although your completely right and I agree with that RG I also think it very unlikely and also too much of a change to implement two new players and a new formation straight away. But in those days when we were 4-4-2 we were very good. Could that formation work in this day and age? Maybe with the right personnel.

Agree with that Steve.
