The Players Arsenal Seem to have Forgotten About this Season! by AT
It is not very hard to see right now that Arsenal’s defence is being stretched to the limit, even more so now that Mathieu Debuchy is set to miss the next three months of the campaign as a result of the ankle injury he suffered against Manchester City at the Emirates.
But with that being said, that is far from the case when it comes to the offensive side of things. Looking into this Arsenal squad, there are three offensive players who are truly deserving of first-team opportunities.
The first player I’d like to point out is Lukas Podolski. The German is unarguably the best finisher in this Arsenal side and his ruthlessness in front of goal is really missing in the team. While I am in no way suggesting that he should be starting ahead of Welbeck, I really think he is entitled to his fair share of opportunities. I firmly believe that Arsene Wenger is wasting the talents of a world-class finisher.
Then, there is young Joel Campbell. Anyone who watched the World Cup will know what this Costa Rican sensation is capable of. Personally, I think that there is so much dynamism that he can bring to this Gunners side and I’d really like to see him get more opportunities so he gets the opportunity to do for Arsenal what he so efficiently did for his nation at the World Cup.
And finally, there’s Tomas Rosicky. While the Czech veteran is past his prime, there’s still a hell of a lot he can contribute to the team should he get the opportunities. Despite being 33, Tomas still has that urgency in his game, the quick change of pace and he is more than capable of delivering a killer ball, not to mention the passion that oozes out of him when he puts on an Arsenal shirt.
With that being said, I really hope to see all these players start at the Emirates in the League Cup tie against Southampton, it’s about time that they got their opportunity.
