If you have not seen the highlights from Arsenal’s win away to Nottingham Forest in our first EFL cup game of the season then you can check them out on the Arsenal website or watch the video below to see our summer signing Lucas Perez net his first two goals for the Gunners.
With Olivier Giroud possibly still unable to play because of his toe or some such reason, a lot of Arsenal fans have been calling for Lucas to get his second start of the week when Arsenal play host to our London and Premier League rivals Chelsea on Saturday evening.
I would not mind that particularly but despite Lucas having taken his penalty well and showed good strength, pace, determination and finishing for his second, he still should have done better with a number of other chances at the City Ground.
One player who did very well for the whole game against Forest, however, and in fact scored a better goal than the Spaniard to make it 4-0, was Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. So if Wenger wants to continue his recent tactic of playing Alexis Sanchez through the middle then I reckon it could be the Ox who is rewarded with another start for his performances in the cup rather than Lucas.
There is also the in form young Alex Iwobi to consider, of course, so how would you like to see the Arsenal attack line up for this big game against Antonio Conte’s Chelsea?
