Who should be in Arsenal starting XI when all players are fit?

Arsenal FC is a club known to be plagued with frequent injuries to players. It has always been difficult for Wenger to have a fully fit team at a particular point in a given campaign. Currently, Arteta, Debuchy, Wilshere, Welbeck and Diaby are all unavailable for selection.

Arsene Wenger is likely to suffer a slight headache over choosing his best starting XI when all the players are available for selection. With the return of Ozil and Ramsey from injury, picking the best XI will prove a headache to the gaffer.

In the attacking role, Wenger will have options to pick from Walcott, Ox, Sanchez, Giroud, Welbeck and Campbell. In the midfield position, Wenger will have a lot of options to choose from. Ramsey, Arteta, Flamini, Coquelin, Ozil, Cazorla, Rosicky, Diaby and Wilshere are all options when fully fit.

So, who would you pick as your best starting XI for Arsenal FC when all the players are fit?

Disciplined Arsenal hammer Citizens at the Etihad

Wow! Not even the most optimistic Arsenal fan saw that coming. A disciplined, compact and efficient performance from the Gunners edged past the champions. In all truth, that is the best I have seen Arsenal play against the big boys for a long time.

Excellent defending, efficient attack and an imperious midfield did the impossible against the star studded Manchester City. Arsene Wenger must have listened to his backroom staff to change his tactics when playing away games against the big boys.

It was an exciting all round performance from the players but Cazorla and Coquelin were simply unplayable. Cazorla controlled the midfield majestically while Coquelin negated every attack from the Champions.

That was splendid stuff, great game and delighted for the boys. Kudos Wenger for a long awaited impressive win against a big team. Happy to be a Gooner!

EPL preview: Champions Manchester City host FA Champions Arsenal on Super Sunday

An eagerly anticipated crash awaits football fans on Sunday. The Champions Manchester City will entertain the FA holders, Arsenal. Both teams are on a good run. Manchester City are on a 12-game unbeaten run. Arsenal have managed 9 wins in their last 12 games.

Both teams have a share of absentees. Manchester City will play without Nasri who has been ruled out for 3 weeks. Edin Dzeko also remains a doubt. The Gunners will miss the services of Debuchy and Arteta who have been ruled out for three months a piece.

The crash between Arsenal and City never lacks excitement. In the last 7 games, there have been 26 goals involved. Six red cards have been produced in the 9 crashes.

Recently, this fixture has not fallen in favor of the Gunners. Its only last season they were thrashed 6-3 by the Citizens. To get a result on Sunday, the Gunners need to find a good balance between attack and defense. Good luck to the boys!

Alexis is the best in the Premier League

Sanchez has quickly adapted to the premier league and has shown to be one of the best players in the division. These are words that have been echoed by his Chilean compatriot, Manuel Pellegrini.

Speaking ahead of the weekend encounter with Arsenal, Pellegrini showered praises on Sanchez by hailing him as the premier league’s best. Speaking to AS the city boss said, ‘’I am happy for him because, at this time, he is the best player in the English football ’’.

Alexis Sanchez has already scored 12 premier goals. Arsenal can count themselves lucky to have the services of the ever hardworking Chilean.

Arsenal stroll past the Potters

Arsenal looked unplayable against Stoke FC. A stellar performance from Sanchez and company ensured a pretty comfortable 3-0 victory for the Gunners. It seems like Stoke City FC can only play on the wet and windy nights at the Britannia.

As usual, the star performance was from Alexis. Two goals and an assist capped an exquisite performance by the Chilean genius. We cannot thank Barcelona enough for this man! Sanchez is a cut above the rest.

Arsene Wenger will be impressed by the return of Ramsey and Ozil who have been missing with injuries. Their return will provide Arsenal with more attacking intent as well as options in the upcoming congested fixtures. The only blemish in the game was the injury to Debuchy.

Transfer news: Arsenal linked to Isco, Morgan Schneiderlin among others

As I said, Arsenal will be linked to several players in this January window transfer. Now Arsenal is being linked to Isco for a whooping transfer fee of £64M. The Spanish midfielder could be pushed away from Bernabeu to accommodate Bale.

Arsenal has also been linked to Morgan Schneiderlin in a bid to add more steel to their midfield. The Gunners will have to battle with Tottenham for the signature of the Frenchman.

Reports also indicate that the Gunners will also look at other options for the defensive midfielder. Wanyama has been reported as an option.

Who is your wish list signing for Arsenal this January?

The January transfer window is already open. It’s a window characterized by a dearth of signings but provides a golden opportunity for teams to strengthen.

Arsenal in particular, having closed the summer short in some areas and now plagued with injuries have the opportunity to strengthen. A defensive midfielder and a defender probably should be top of Wenger’s list.

However, with Wenger’s reluctance to spend and unavailability of quality players in the January window transfer, Arsenal fans can only wait. They won’t elude the perennial heartache associated with the transfer period.

Was letting Podolski go a mistake?

The January transfer has been opened and Arsenal have already let Podolski join Inter Milan on a loan spell of 6 months. With the prevailing injury crisis, was it wise to let Podolski leave on loan?

Arsenal injury problems are well documented. Actually, I cannot recall the last time Arsenal had all the players available for selection. Against Southampton, the Gunners did not have any fit striker. The Gunners were forced to play with a makeshift attack.

With Podolski gone, the Gunners have lost one of the most lethal strikers around the world. How he never had enough game time is beyond us. Only Wenger knows why.

Podolski may have his limitations but letting him leave amid the injury concerns of the Arsenal squad seems inexplicable. Hope Wenger won’t regret. All the best King Poldi #Aha #RedArmy #Thanks
