Napoli vs Arsenal: team news and predicted starting XI

Morning, folks. Before I get into talking about the match, I feel compelled to point you all in the direction of the latest Goonersphere Podcast. Joining Daniel and I were newcomer @LewBob91 and the chatterbox that is @LittleWillAFC and it turned out to be a great show. Okay… It gets a little…
