Ever since Arsene Wenger arrived to take over the manager´s position at Arsenal, we have known that the Frenchman has his own way of doing things. Sometimes this has led to amazing and entertaining football and sometimes it has led to accusations of stubbornness and making the same mistakes over and over again.
To be honest I do not think we are quite at that point yet, but there is a growing feeling that the current Arsenal system and tactics are not working as well as they were. A big point was made of Wenger selecting the same starting line up for five Premier League games in a row for the first time, but then it seemed to play into the hands of Swansea.
Our defeat on Monday, however, was also put down to a lack of real width and these two things combine to make me agree with Aaron Ramsey´s claim that he would be better off back in the middle. Santi Cazorla is a more natural wide man but we also have the options of Walcott, and Welbeck if he is fit.
Either of those would give Arsenal an injection of pace and attacking intent as well, and could also take United by surprise a little. So should Wenger break out of his recent rut and tweak his Arsenal tactics?
