Arsenal seem to be operating under Murphy’s Law at the moment, which states that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong. And with the defensive side of the Arsenal squad being the weakest right now, of course that means that Laurent Koscielny has now added even further to the problems, as reported by Sky Sports.
Arsene Wenger has revealed in his latest injury update, that the France international centre back will not be back in contention for the Gunners before the next international break. So if we are lucky (Hah!) then he will return to the squad for the home clash with Man United on November 22nd, which would be pretty handy.
However, before that the Gunners have games against Sunderland, Burnley, Anderlecht and Swansea City to deal with. Not too bad a run of fixtures I suppose but we still need our strongest possible defence and that surely means bringing Calum Chambers into the middle to partner Per Mertesacker.
Nacho Monreal is not a central defender, he does not feel comfortable there and this is no time for him to start learning the job. Having Chambers in the middle makes us more solid and should give our BFG more confidence in the player alongside him and help him to play better.
And it gives our young Spanish right back Hector Bellerin some more vital experience and playing time. Surely this move is a no brainer, Gooners, don’t you think?
