After ostensibly dropping two points against Liverpool last night, Arsenal could really do with getting back to winning ways against Stoke City on Sunday and banishing the frustration from last nights game.
Many Arsenal fans are understandably upset that Wenger made his three changes near the end of bringing on Mikel Arteta, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs in exchange for Ozil, Campbell and Walcott which may well have cost us the two points.
But what if instead Wenger could have brought on Alexis Sanchez and Mohamed Elneny instead of the Ox and Arteta? I think they would have given us a real boost to go on to win the game. Well this could possibly happen in this Saturday’s game after Wenger gave us an update after yesterdays match. When asked about Alexis, Le Prof said: “I will be cautious now. There is an opportunity that he will be in the squad for Sunday. He will have a definite test on Saturday and Friday and Saturday will be two important days for him. It is not impossible that he will be involved.”
I am sure Sanchez will be coming on for a 15 minute cameo, and I reckon that could be a good time to introduce Elneny to the Premier League as well. Wenger added: “Elneny will join us. We will see if he can qualify for Sunday.”
It’s amazing that Arsenal have still made no official announcement on our new signing, but at least Wenger has admitted that the Egyptian exists lol. It will be great if they can both come on the pitch next week….
