Arsenal fans are obviously desperate for the Gunners to get a win away to Leicester City at the weekend after the disappointment of losing our opening Premier League match at home to Liverpool. With much of the blame for the defeat being placed on the weakened nature of the Arsenal side, a lot of us are pinning our hopes for Saturday on the return of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud, but the boss has suggested that they might not be ready.
As reported on the Arsenal website the Frenchman spoke about the risk of bringing them back too fast after their extended involvement in the Euro 2016 tournament and used what happened to Aaron Ramsey on Sunday to highlight his point.
The Welshman had only featured in pre-season for the first time in the final match against Man City, so did Wenger take a risk in playing him? If so it was a bit daft as he did have the options of players like Cazorla and Granit Xhaka to fall back on.
If he did though, you can understand why he would be even more reluctant than usual to risk Ozil and co against Leicester. On the other hand we do badly need to play better and pick up some points before our EPL rivals start to open a gap.
So assuming that the trio are not quite ready, which of them, if any, should we risk?
