So that is that for Arsenal’s pre-season schedule, with less than a week to go before the Premier League season kicks off. Arsene Wenger and the coaching staff will be working hard with the players over the next few days to get them ready for the visit of Liverpool but I am sure that the manager already has a pretty good idea of who will be in the starting line-up for that opening match.
It was looking like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would get off to a good start this year but tghe last couple of games have not really gone all that well for the lad. And up until last weekend it seemed as though Joel Campbell was the front runner for the right forward position but now I am not so sure.
Alex Iwobi has really stepped up in the last two games to put forward a strong case for his inclusion in the first team on Sunday. After completing nearly the whole game against Man City and looking sharp, Alexis Sanchez is sure to start on the left and I think it will be Theo Walcott through the middle.
Perhaps the right flank is not Iwobi’s best position but he is looking so sharp that I think Wenger will want him in the team. He has all week to work on that position and I am fairly sure he can do a good job there, so do you think the young Gunner has booked himself a place to face Liverpool?
