First of all the basis of this tactical discussion is the assumption that the Arsenal manager will go with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell on either side of Olivier Giroud when Arsenal next play in the Premier League, which is a home game with struggling Sunderland on Saturday.
Let´s be honest and admit that the injury list has not left Arsene Wenger many options, with Aaron Ramsey almost certain to be brought back into central midfield alongside either Mathieu Flamini or Calum Chambers.
So the question then is which side would be better for the Costa Rican forward and the England international to line up on. The problem is that both Campbell and the Ox are used to playing on the right and I think that both would prefer to start there.
If it was up to me I would put Chamberlain on the left where Alexis Sanchez usually plays and I will explain why. For one thing his physical attributes and style of football are closer to the Chilean’s that Campbell’s, so it would not be as much of a change for the team dynamic and the link up play with Mesut Ozil and Nacho Monreal.
And the same applies to the right side, where Campbell and Bellerin have been getting used to playing together. That right flank role also allows Campbell to cut in and shoot with his favoured left foot. Do you agree that this is the best set up for Arsenal this weekend?
