There has been much talk from the Arsenal fans discussing who they want Wenger to start against Hull City tomorrow, but I am pretty good at reading the Bosses mind and I am now going to tell you the team that he WILL name to start the game, and we will find out how I get on when he publishes the team sheet at about 12.00 tomorrow.
For starters we all know that Wilshere (hah!), Cazorla and Rosicky are still a long way from being ready to play, and we also know that Gabriel is back in Brazil having treatment, but otherwise Wenger has practically his whole squad to choose from but will want to save as many legs for Tuesday as possible.
Ospina was injured for the last round against Sunderland but he will definitely be back in goal tomorrow. There was talk of Gibbs getting a knock last week and Koscielny got a dead leg, but Wenger didn’t even think Gibbs was worthy of discussion in the injury round up, and he said of Laurent: “Koscielny is doing well. He has a test this morning and he looks positive.”
I think Gibbs and Bellerin will be starting, but Koss will be on the bench with Chambers starting alongside Mertesacker. Campbell and Iwobi are definite FA Cup starters nowadays, and Welbeck will get his first start of the season. Coquelin, Ozil and Alexis will be on the bench, with Flamini and Elneny in the middle. Chamberlain and Walcott will also be saved for Tuesday for their counter-attacking speed, which Giroud will get a chance to get back to goalscoring ways.
So here is the team that Wenger will pick:
Bellerin, Chambers, Mertesacker, Gibbs
Elneny, Flamini, Campbell
Welbeck, Giroud, Iwobi
Am I right?
