Arsenal have lost quite a few quality first team players so early this season but have recently welcomed back to training one man who has got the kind of pace Arsenal needs to win games.
And although it not expected of Wenger to throw him straight into the starting line-up this weekend against Hull City. But with the massive shortage in numbers at the Emirates, one cannot rule such happenings out (even though he comes on from the bench) and with the lad working very hard on the training pitch since he’s return to full training, the signs are even more glaring and of course the yearning from fans to see their pacy forward in action once again is one which might tempt Wenger to give him a run in. No matter how short.
I am sure by now you know exactly who i’m talking about. As we Arsenal fans must have at one point or the other day-dreamed of the day when we would finally see Theo Walcott back to the fold and in action, featuring alongside Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.
Its getting closer i must say and to be frank, the dream and hopes is beginning to get bigger as i have started pinching myself to the delight of Arsene Wenger playing the trio in a 4-3-3 attack system while Santi Carzola sits back in his natural central midfield role (something i would give anything to see Ozil do at Arsenal) doing justice with wonderfully timed passes to the flanks to any of Alexis and Walcott who interchangeably will terrorize any defence in the Premier League. While also feeding Welbeck with loads of opportunity which am sure the lad will enjoy before the return of Giroud or any other striker Wenger brings into the fold in January.
The formation below however concentrates on the expected “Arsenal attack” in the coming weeks at the least. And does not particularly focus on the defence as there’s so much uncertainty in the injury case of Koscielny. But should Wenger decide to rush Walcott back to first team football (either from the starting xi of from the bench) against Hull City, this is how the Gooners will likely line-up.
I would however like to see Joel Campbell and Ox been given opportunities at various points. But its is likely that the latter would be put ahead of Walcott this weekend after a very impressive performance during the international break linking up well with Welbeck.
The Gooner’s midfield still looks okay to me with Jack Wilshere and Mathieu Flamini anchoring the middle, although with the former drifting into the attack a little more depending on the flow of the game.
The defence hmmm…… I’d rather not talk about it.
