Despite the concerns over the fitness of the heavily worked forward Alexis Sanchez, not many Arsenal fans or football observers really expected Arsene Wenger to leave his star man out of the Arsenal starting line up for the away game at Norwich City today and so it is no surprise to see the Chilean´s name on Wenger’s team sheet.
The prof has chosen to go with his fellow Frenchman Mathieu Flamini to provide the cover and steel in front of the back four that Francis Coquelin had been doing so well until his injury last weekend. Calum Chambers is on the bench and we might well see him get another chance in that role as well.
Another player on the bench is Joel Campbell as the fit again Aaron Ramsey takes his place on the right but once again there is a good chance that we could see the young Costa Rican forward at some point in the match. Apart from these two positions the Gunners line up is pretty predictable these days and looks to have plenty of quality and the right balance to get the Premier League title race up and running after the disappointment of defeat to West Brom last time out.
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez
Subs: Ospina, Debuchy, Gabriel, Chambers, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Reine-Adelaide, Campbell.
We need this one Arsenal so Come On You Gunners, let’s see some goals.
