Arsene Wenger might decide to keep faith with the Arsenal players who got beat in our last Premier League match which ended with a 4-0 defeat away to Liverpool and could have been a lot worse if Petr Cech had played as badly as his outfield colleagues, but somehow I doubt it and expect the manager to make a few changes to the team for the home game against Bournemouth tomorrow.
Wenger will have no choice but to make at least one change, because Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain started as the right sided wing back at Anfield and is no longer an Arsenal player. So in all likelihood we will see Hector Bellerin return to his natural flank and that will leave the left side to our new summer signing Sead Kolasinac who was named our player of the month for August and looks a real handful in the more advanced role of wing back.
The defence has been pretty awful so far but we do have Koscielny available again and he will surely start, although whether that be in the middle or on the left of a back three is unclear. I would have him in the middle as he is our best defender and despite his poor form so far I would go for Monreal on the left where he is more comfortable. Then it is just a question of Holding of Mustafi on the right and I would prefer to see the young Englishman given the nod in a game that should not be too difficult for him.
I would like to see Wenger react to the error strewn start to the season from Granit Xhaka by dropping the Swiss international and going for a midfield pairing of Ramsey and Coquelin, with Ozil in front in his best position as a number 10 playmaker.
That would leave two places for the forward line and surely it is time to give a rare start to olivier Giroud, the only Arsenal striker who has looked sharp so far. Play him next to Alexandre Lacazette and we have a strong combination or pace, power, movement and finishing which should be more than capable of popping the Cherries.
Holding, Koscielny, Monreal
Bellerin, Ramsey, Coquelin, Kolasinac
What do you think of this Arsenal XI for the Bournemouth game?
