Photo: Arsenal Strongest Line-Up vs Hull City Without Koscielny, Ozil & Ramsey.

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 next weekend.

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.

The Gunners host the Tigers on 18 October, and are sure to feature a back-line very unfamiliar.

Laurent Koscielny has left international duty with France with an achilles injury. At this stage, Arsenal are hopeful that he will recover in time to play in the game against Hull but he remains a doubt.

Youngster Calum Chambers, first-choice cover at right-back and centre-back, is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season in last Sunday’s defeat at Chelsea.

And Mathieu Debuchy is a long-term absentee with an ankle injury.

That means that 19-year-old Hector Bellerin looks certain to start, while 5ft 10in Nacho Monreal would probably be drafted in at centre-back if Koscielny’s recovery takes any longer than currently envisaged.

In the attack also, the Gooners would also experience new starters with Santi Carzola and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain likely to make the starting XI replacing regulars –  Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey.

Below is an image of how Arsenal’s starting XI against Hull city would look like.

    Would make more sense with Monreal on the right and Hayden in the middle. He was a rockstar in the Capital One game, the only player that performed

    Coquelin is more mature and less adventurous than Bellerin and should play as right full back. Hayden, while he may not be very experienced, he will offer pace to compliment Metersacker.

    I think the manager should use Diaby alongside jack, that will be a fine combination and also brings in the young Isaac Hayden alongside per in the central defend. He needs this chance Mr. Wenger, please also give campbell a chance too

    Without necessarily undermining the capability and potential of Bellerin, I would go with conquelin in the right back position. The guy deserves some game time. I remember watching him in the cup game vs southoumpton and he did really well, moreover having played out on the left back. Bellerin can come in letter depending on how the game goes.

    What do you think Gooners?
