It may only be 12 games into the season but on the back of two successive League defeats, Arsenal is no more in the reckoning for the Premier League title. At least, Wenger has already given in to Chelsea, and his team’s penchant for throwing leads away, as at Swansea, or playing well and making no end product like it was against United, has not helped either.
But this Arsenal team is not dead and buried yet, and if a repeat of the maturity shown against Dortmund in midweek can be rekindled, West Brom away could be the beginning of a renaissance for the Gunners this season.
Even with the increasing crippling of the squad with a quartet of injuries suffered by players in the last 7 days, there has not been an Arsenal performance without positive attacking displays, especially from Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Both players, together with Mertesacker, Chambers and Kieran Gibbs have been in every Arsenal team from the start since the win at the Stadium of Light in mid-October – a set of players who we might say have formed the core of the Arsenal team this season.
Despite Arsene Wenger’s short in numbers to his squad, here is how Wenger is expected to line-up his side this weekend against WBA.
