AUDIOPOST – Arsene Wenger was in a very good mood after his makeshift Arsenal team destroyed Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 and he even made a couple of jokes with the assembled hacks after the game.
It was not hard to pick the best Arsenal player from the disappointing defeat away to West Brom, as Alexis Sanchez was head and shoulders above the rest and we can only regret that his hard work and brilliance were not matched by those around him and that he did not get any of the clear cut chances that came our way.
This was always going to be a game that Arsenal simply wanted to get over and done with and move on, but we also needed to beat West Brom away to make sure that we stayed at least level on top of the Premier League and did not allow the current injury list to derail the challenge for the title.
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?
While it appears as though the whole world is determined to stand up and show support and solidarity with the people of France after the horrors of the terrorist attacks on Paris last Friday, some Arsenal players were involved in the football friendly between France and England last night that brought the events into even sharper focus.
