Will this be Arsenal’s first-choice XI this season? Choose yours…

Arsenal currently have a number of players sidelined, and have had to field makeshift defences so far this term, but what would be our favoured XI with all our players fit?

Our goalkeeper is currently deemed to be Petr Cech, but I wouldn’t be disappointed to see Ospina overtake him in the pecking order, if on merit alone of course.

Is Wenger strong enough to give Ozil the ‘Conte’ treatment?

Arsene Wenger has been told he needs to be tougher on Mesut Ozil, with the German seemingly given an easy ride.

The German international is regularly singled out for criticism by fans, with the 28 year-old putting in a number of lazy performances despite being one of the best players in the Premier League.

Why are Arsenal’s Walcott and Giroud happy to cash their cheques?

Paul Merson has claimed that Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud should be unhappy with their lack of playing time at Arsenal.

Arsenal making history: Legend claims this has never happened in football

Thierry Henry has talked about the recent arrival of Alexandre Lacazette at Arsenal, and has claimed he will be the first ever player to be first-choice for his club, while his benched team-mate is favoured for his international side.

Can Ospina overthrow Cech as Arsenal’s number one?

David Ospina has revealed that he is staying at Arsenal, with the intention of challenging Petr Cech for a first-team role.

The Colombian international had been strongly linked with the exit door this summer, with Turkey touted as a possible destination, but he now looks destined to stay put and fight for his place.
