Chelsea 'London'. So American of you Chris 😁

Chelsea are obviously the favourites in this tie. I have no idea who is going to be able to handle Hazard (if he plays).

We have not lost to an English team in Europe yet. Hopefully with a little luck this streak will continue.

Also somewhere I read that Akpom in 3 games against Chelsea he scored in each of those games.

I wouldn't mind him scoring and showing an Arsenal shirt underneath PAOK's.

Chelsea reportedly planning on a big rotation for this match. Of greatest importance to us, is that Hazard may not play. One can only hope!

Prijovic is out 7-10 days, so he definitely misses OFI. Hopefully he will be back for Chelsea; if his past returns are any indication, he'll be ready.

Sounds like he completed most of his training today and may make it in time for this game. Don't say I didn't warn ya!

I would hope he sits this one out and be ready for AEX.

I agree. I don't want him to come even as a sub. Let him recover fully and give him 90 minutes against AEX.

Against Chelsea doesn't matter who is going to play. It's a game that we just have to enjoy and take anything we can. With or without Hazard, Chelsea is one of the top European teams. Honestly, us playing the best 11 is not going to make any difference to the final. We have the same chances of winning with Pelkas or Biseswar, Canas or Shakhov, Prijovic or Akpom. Rest some of those who need rest for the AEX game and those who will step in against Chelsea they will anyway play the game of their lives.

Great defeatist attitude, boys! Let's roll over and die!

Pash, It's not being defeatist but rather realistic plus strategic. The AEX game in my opinion is 100 times more important than Chelsea.

Remember we are -2 already and we need to beat AEX to go on top of them in the table. If we lose or draw the gap opens up and slowly slowly the pressure builds to make up the gap.

Yeah it would be great to get a result against Chelsea and for our club to get some international lime light but that's a nice to have. Focus needs to AEX

I'm not sure your grasp of mathematics is strong here

Woops but I'm pretty sure you're well aware of what i was trying to imply. A draw doesn't help as it maintains the 2pt advantage for aex but can also open up the gap between us and gavri if they win

I agree it's all about beating AEK and winning league. 

Whether we bear or lose to Chelsea means nothing for me. 

Our goal is to win the league.

B/R Live as pash mentions is probably the best option. If you have a decent cable TV provider than you might have access to Uni MAS, which will also be showing the game.

Uni MAS TV is also available over the air in major cities in the US:

In Miami it is on channel 69 WAMI
In Boston it is on channel 66 WUTF
In Chicago it is on channel  60 WXFT

I can provide additional cities. Just ask.

Seems Lucescu also tested Pelkas as a center forward. Pelkanggidis?

4-6-0? Interesting... I guess that's why both Karelis and Akpom are not in the squad for the game.

Playing a pair of false nines is....interesting.

You know what this looks like? The old W-M formation of the prewar years.

                  --Pashalakis--

 --Vieirinha--Varela--Hatseridis--Tosca--

             --Shakhov--Mauricio--

 --Jaba--Pelkas--El Kaddouri--Biseswar--

 

Pretty attacking lineup, though I'd prefer Vieirinha just sit out with Kitsiou playing there.

Which would also point to the fact that the Prijo injury was fake and that Lucescu is going to use Karelis/Akpom in the rotation against Aris.

My lineup for tomorrow:

-------------- Paschalakis -------------------
Vieirinha - Varela - Crespo - Tosca
Mauricio ---------------- Wernbloom
Jaba -------- Pelkas ----- El Kaddouri
------------------- Prijovic ---------------------
