I know that I am second guessing the Arsenal starting line0up for Sunday’s Premier League clash with Aston Villa here, but everything seems to be pointing towards the Frenchman agreeing with me, at least as far as the attacking players of the Gunners are concerned.
I am not talking about being complacent or not giving Sunday’s visitors Aston Villa respect, but we have a week between games here and the next one is a much tougher looking trip to White Hart Lane. So I think the boss will hand starts once again to the returning pair of Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil.
I also think that he will bring our club record signing back into the number 10 role. That is where the German international wants to play and where his skills can do the most damage if he plays to his ability. That eye for a killer pass and the ability to play it will obviously be helped by having the right players to make the most of it.
And if Wenger does what I expect, our front line will be Alexis Sanchez on the left, Giroud in the middle and Walcott on the right. With Aaron Ramsey also breaking from the box-to-box midfield role, Ozil should be spoilt for choice on how to unlock the Villa defence. Pace, power, dancing feet, determination, flicks, tricks and plenty of finishing power.
It might seem a bit harsh on the likes of Cazorla and Rosicky, and it is, but with everyone fit and firing, this would be the best attacking line-up in my opinion. Hopefully we will find out on Sunday. What do you guys think?
