Our team is nearly complete, although voting remains open for each of the positions, but we still need to choose which Arsenal forward should be leading the line.
Lucas Perez arrived to bring competition to the role this summer in a £17 Million deal, and arrives with an impressive record from his previous season with Deportivo La Coruna, but he may take time to adjust to life in England.
Olivier Giroud has been our first-choice for the past few years, but his tally per season has him way below our rivals main strikers. The Frenchman has proven to be great when in form, but he hasn’t quite found the consistency to earn a ‘World Class’ tag, and there is definitely room for improvement.
Alexis Sanchez has been fielded as a makeshift striker on a few occasions this year, but hasn’t scored whilst operating in the role. It is worth noting he bagged his goal against PSG AFTER Giroud was brought on, and he returned to his usual role.
Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck have similar profiles, with the pair missing large chunks of their career in North-London through injury, as well as both being used as wingers as well as as a striker. The former has been overlooked to play centrally this term, but Danny was highly impressive when returning from his injury last season, and if he can pick up where he left off when he is back in December, he will have defences running scared.
