Pick Your Midfield Trio for Arsenal in the FA Cup Final?

With Danny Welbeck being the only notable absentee for Arsenal as they take on Aston Villa in the FA Cup final, the team selection for the big game will prove to be a very difficult task for Arsene Wenger, and perhaps the most difficult part of selecting the starting eleven will be deciding which players will comprise Arsenal’s midfield trio.

Martin Keown’s SENSIBLE assessment of Arsenal’s needs

The Gunners legend Martin Keown is one of our more respected ex-Arsenal pundits, and although he thinks Arsene Wenger has assembled a fantastic squad he believes there are three areas that Le Prof needs to address this summer to give us the strongest possible line-up to challenge Chelsea next season.

Do Arsenal actually NEED any new players?


A lot of speculation has been raised about as to who Arsené Wenger will be looking to recruit this summer. But the real question is do we actually need anyone? We have been linked with a number of players this past few months, from goalkeepers right up to the frontmen strikers, but is our current squad good enough to challenge for the title next season?
