Photo: Arsenal’s New 4-3-3 Formation With Walcott, Welbeck & Alexis In Attack.

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.

Share your opinions on how Wenger should line up the lads this weekend.

    Attack is good…Midfield not the best we have…But defence is terrible…cant withstand much against big opponents…And another look is that some teams dont even have this defence lined up and still they sometimes win big opponents…So the defence may not be having much big names but with the help of God,their committment,ethusiasm and their strong spirit of the game they can conquer big opponents having big names…But yet and still,humanly speaking,experienced,smart and committed defenders also matters…God bless Arsenal FC…And let’s start or continue in praying for Arsenal FC and I pray I wont stop praying for the club too…God bless!AMEN!!!

    The weakest point for Arsenal for the past 5 years is the defense. It begins with the goal keeper, he needs to be replaced, not that he lacks skills but he is too reckless with very poor judgment of the game. He rushed the ball when he needs to calm the opponents attacks and he loves to pass dangerious balls to his giffenders needlessly, which resulted in his own goal. He needs to sit out at least one full season to observe and learn from other 1st class goal keepres. The other liability for Arsenal is the big lad Mertz, he is too slow, poor in the air and very weak. Kychelney often gets injured trying to cover for 2 people. Having Mertz in the back is equal to playing with 1 less person. Yes, he reads the game right but that will not stop a speedy attack player from scoring. The holding mid-field position is another big concern for Arsenal. The only player who can play that position is Flamini, but having Mertz behind you and the other mid-field player being Wilshire makes things much harder. Despite Wenger’s wish to make Wilshire a mid-field player, he never stay back to defend. his game is to drive the ball forward until he hits a wall. Wilshire needs to improve his passes and learn to use both feet, so he will not be so predictable. I like his energy and tenacity but has to improve on making precise passes to be a complete player. Wilcott and Chamberline has very identical game. Both like to run towards the dead zone and try to shoot from a tight angle, their passes are at the low 30% range. If they use their speed wisely, both could be incredable finishers. Alexis Sanchez is by far one of the best players in Arsenal Jersey, he is more comfortable to play in the middle with the freedom to move from side to side and Carzola could play on the Left. Wenger should give Campbell a chance, I am sure he can play as good as Theo if not better.
