Arsenal, before the International break took a short bus trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Jose Mourinho’s men for the continued ‘super Sunday’ classics. The Gooners however fell to a disappointing 2-0 defeat, conceding a penalty which was converted nicely by ravaging Eden Hazard before Diego Costa further drove the dagger into the hearts of Arsenal fans after connecting to a well timed pass from Cesc Fabregas to round up the game to the delight of the home fans.
The Gooners has since then, going into the international break, suffered other severe injuries to key players, altering the line-up of Arsene Wenger’s side when they play host to Hull City this weekend.
Below was Arsenal’s starting line-up against Chelsea.
Arsenal are expected to make four new changes to the starting line-up as against Chelsea below.
Following the recent injury crisis currently sweeping across Arsenal’s team like a plague since the start of the season, with the most recent cases being that of record signing Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny. Arsenal manager – Arsene Wenger will have to come up with several changes/makeshift in the line-up of his side when they resume normal Premier League duties this Saturday against Hull City.
Some of these changes would be greatly visible in the defense as regular starter Koscielny was the latest to join the long list of Arsenal players sidelined with one injury or the other. Wenger would have to come up with a makeshift to replace the Frenchman but would be confronted with very little options after his refusal to sign a defender in the summer whilst letting go of Thomas Vermaelen.
Now Arsenal are set to play a defence featuring Nacho Monreal at centre-back and rookie Hector Bellerin at right-back when they return to Premier League action against Hull City.
In the attack also, the Gooners would also experience new starters with Santi Carzola, Mikel Arteta and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain likely to make the starting XI replacing regulars – Mesut Ozil, Mathiue Flamini and Aaron Ramsey.
Below is Arsenal’s likely starting XI against Hull City.
It is Expected that with this line up the Gooners should comfortably cruise to a 3-1 victory (my guess). going by the team’s current burst of confidence upfront. COYG!!!
