There have been many discussions about Arsenal’s best line-up incorporating the new arrivals into the side, and after seeing Unai Emery start the game against Borehamwood with a conventional 4-4-2 system with Aubameyang and Lacazette playing together up front set me thinking..
After the game the players were talking about a “pressing” system and how to counteract it, so I was looking at how I would lay out our very best line-up if we had every single one one of our players fit and available. So here is my choice….
Lichtsteiner – Sokratis – Chambers – Monreal
Mhkitaryan – Ozil – Torreira – Xhaka
Aubameyang – Lacazette
Right now we have a very large squad to choose from and there will obviously be hard choices like Bellerin/Lichtsteiner, Mustafi/Chambers and Ramsey/Xhaka for example, but let us just see how everyone decides who should be first choice….
Obviously there will be a completely different XI for the Europa League but we’ll just do first-choice for now, shall we?
