The Arsenal and Germany play maker Mesut Ozil continued his fine run of form and capped another very good game with a well taken goal and could have scored more, but he was edged out for my Man of the Match award by the human perpetual motion machine that is Alexis Sanchez who also scored two great goals and assisted Ozil’s.
Arsenal’s newest young star Hector Bellerin has been absolutely amazing since he was pushed into the Gunners First XI a year ago, so much so that he was awarded the Catalan Young Player of the Year. His opposite number in the Arsenal back line, Nacho Monreal, who will be 30 in February, believes that the his 20 year-old Spanish compatriot plays with as much maturity as a player of Nacho’s age, and will one day be playing for the senior international side.
Now that we have had all the players returning from the internationals, and have been given a full injury update by Arsene Wenger, how would you pick the Arsenal starting XI to face West Brom on Saturday?
The young Spaniard Hector Bellerin was forced into the Gunners senior side last season due to the injury problems of Matthieu Debuchy and the inconsistencies of Calum Chambers, and it seems that the Arsenal defensive coach Steve Bould thought it was too early for the lad, according to the Gunners legend Lee Dixon.
So much for Arsenal fans hoping and praying to get most of our players back uninjured after the international break, and some of our currently injured ones to be returning to the squad, but Alas!, Arsene Wenger has burst our bubble today.
