There has been a lot of debate among Arsenal fans and talk in the football media about the striker situation at Arsenal. But for some reason the same can not be said of our big Premier League rivals Chelsea, despite them looking seriously short on fire power.
I must admit that I was a bit gutted for the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere at the weekend. The Gunners ended up going on to win the game but Wilshere had to miss out again after picking up an ankle injury in training last week. Surely only Abou Diaby has had worse luck than Jack on that front.
I think it is safe to say that we have not really seen the best of the Arsenal and England star yet, at leasxt not on a consistent basis. But the flashes of brilliance that we have seen from young Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have been enough to suggest that he has a brilliant career ahead of him.
Even though Arsenal beat Chelsea yesterday to pick up a third trophy from our pre-season preparations, some Arsenal fans were left disappointed after Arsene Wenger declared in his post match interview, reported by the Arsenal website, that the transfer rumours linking Arsenal with the Real Madrid and France striker Karim Benzema are very unlikely to come true.
