Now we we all know that Arsenal are not going to pull off a miracle and beat Chelsea to the Premier League title this season, we need to look at how Arsene Wenger is going to manage the squad for the rest of the season.
The pressure may be off the Gunners in the hunt for the title but there is still a hell of a lot to play for. Not only do Arsenal need to keep up the great momentum that we´ve had since the turn of the year, we have a massive Wembley final to think about.
In my mind it is now very important for Arsene Wenger to use his squad in an intelligent way, while obviously trying to make sure that we can win all of our games. In my opinion I think we can now start to give some game time to a few key fringe players in order to keep them happy and interested in the Gunners and our future.
Foremost of these are Jack Wilshere and Theo Walcott, two players that can be absolutely amazing on their day. Then you have the age old question about whether Abou Diaby will ever be able to make a decent contribution for us over a season. We know that he is a brilliant player but will we see enough of him? The same question could be asked of Jack.
If Arsenal are to keep one or both of them then we need to see something form them on the pitch before the season ends, so should Wenger play them on Monday when we go to Hull?
