3 Things To Keep In Mind After Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Manchester City, As Gunners Set To Take On Liverpool

Google News Icon

Many fans misapprehend the purpose of pre-season friendly games and often make bold predictions going into the new season. What matters in these games is the intent and have playing minutes under the belt for contesting players which mainly comprise of the youth talent and testing the bench strength as well. We’ll analyse the 3 talking points of Arsenal’s victory over City in what ended out to be an enthralling contest.

Walcott’s return to form :-

Theo have had a mixed bag of performances last season and have been drawing flak from the fans frustrated over his finishing aspect in front of goal. Question that has been doing the rounds here at Emirates is that whether he is a ‘natural striker’ or should Wenger play him at right wing. Against City he looked liked a new signing and was pretty slick like the good old times penetrating the defence more often than not resulting in a goal and an assist. 2 goals and same amount of assists in 305 minutes he’s played in pre season should supplement his confidence and Theo is a confidence player. One substantial factor that might support his cause is that he’s excellent in defending attacks as well and retracing positions. Deficit in attacking ranks at Arsenal will probably make Wenger sceptical to play him wide. The upcoming season is a make or break for him and fans should get behind him and give Theo one last season.

CB Trouble:-

Closing stages of the game saw Gabriel the established centre back and preferred choice after Mertesacker being stretched off and adding to Wenger’s woes and he was left to ponder over who to start in that defence against Liverpool. With no imminent recruits inbound ahead of that game it is predicted that Wenger will have to bank on Chambers and new kid on the block Rob Holding, albeit Koscielney has returned to training but there is a huge question mark on him making the cut for the Liverpool game. Wenger has always been critical of preferring quality in the transfer market and had that privilege of having a well depth squad in all areas now needs to reinforce as far as this position is concerned and Arsenal have been linked with some stellar names.

Ousmane Dembele, Emre Mor, Renato Sanches, Marcus Rashford, Kingsley Coman, Alex Iwobi there are some fine set of young players with implausible quality coming up and Iwobi is one of them. He got the equaliser against City and so far displayed exemplary sense of composure and fitness of what we have seen of him. He will be critical to Wenger’s plans in this season and have established fine tuning with Sanchez and Ozil which was evident had one monitored Arsenal’s last few matches in the Premier League. Technique wise Iwobi is very Arsenal, his close control and ability to play one-two and after coming into the team that was lacking fluency at that stage in the flanks he added that attacking verve and looked spot on when he was used as a number 10 in few FA Cup games.
