It’s back to Premier League action this week after our FA Cup victory over Sunderland, with a tricky fixture against Liverpool coming up.
Jurgen Klopp has failed to get his new side performing consistently, and despite Anfield being a difficult place to go, we should be confident of getting the win.
Here’s how we think Arsene Wenger will line up for the game:
GK) Petr Cech
No question marks here, only an injury would really keep the Czech international out.
RB) Hector Bellerin
- Lucas Perez: Losing Number 9 Shirt To Lacazette Is The Final Straw For Me
- Paris Saint-Germain Make £44m Bid For Alexis Sanchez
- Chelsea To Make Oxlade-Chamberlain Bid ‘Within 48 Hours’
The fact that Bellerin played in our FA Cup win over Sunderland suggests Mathieu Debuchy’s Arsenal career is all but over, so it’s difficult to see him getting a look in against Liverpool.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Relegated to the bench over the weekend to recoup a little, the Spaniard should be ready to reclaim his starting spot at the expensive of Kieran Gibbs.
CB) Per Mertesacker
The giant German was handed a proper rest during the FA Cup fixtures, and wasn’t even included in the match day squad. Whether Arsenal fans would prefer to see a continued partnership of Gabriel Paulista and Laurent Koscielny, Arsene Wenger seems to prefer his vice-captain.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
It’s hard to tell who will be rotated at the back at the moment, with all three of our centre-backs showing real quality. It seems most likely that Wenger will stick with the Mertscielny axis though.
