Is it time for Arsenal fans to be worried? by briantole
Where are our best players? Who is the one to stand up now? We have a lot to talk about after a very disappointing January and now not very good performances this February. Ever since the turn of the year Ozil has just capped himself with one goal and one assist. Sanchez hasn’t been himself after his return from injury. His performances have been far from good. Even after Wenger saying that he has had enough winter break. And now Koss has had some very
inconsistent performances this year. He is good with possession but he has sometimes left our defence open.
Coquelin has also looked rusty after his injury and I am not sure for how long this rustiness will last. I hope he comes good the next game. Monreal has been solid but has looked somehow exposed and not very comfortable after Sanchez injury. I don’t know if it is because he has not been accorded the much needed protection from Walcott, or whatever the particular reason, it remains a concern.
Bellerin has also not been his electric self ever since Ramsey was switched to the center.
The energy and defensive work rate of Ramsey has been missing from the right wing and that seems to affect Hector.
Goals have also been minimal and hard to come by. Last time out we were saved by our substitutes from embarrassing blushes. The only stand out performer all season has been Cech, although he has also had two or three off games.
Wenger needs to fix such deficits in our team because we need to have everyone standing out and being consistent for as long as possible.
Another explanation could be precautionary methods Wenger is taking to avoid even more injuries, but it looks like players are lacking match fitness and look tired too. With important matches coming up we need everyone to be their quality selves and not get complacent and it is important for Wenger to prepare his players for the storm.
Let us start getting things right and not fall behind otherwise we might see Tottenham raising the trophy come the end of the season, and that is worse than Leicester holding it!
