While there is certainly some good news for Arsenal on the injury front, with the return of Danny Welbeck after a long spell on the sidelines as well as Arsene Wenger being able to call upon the likes of Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny, it is not all good for the Gunners as we prepare for the Premier League match away to Swansea City.
The manager is still without Santi Cazorla and Theo Walcott but for me the biggest issue is the continued absence of our young right back Hector Bellerin. This is not just because the Spaniard is such a good player either, but because it is arguably the one position in the side where Wenger does not have good cover.
Debuchy is not fit and Jenkinson seems to have completely lost his confidence and form. We have Gabriel who to be fair to him did alright when put in there recently. He does not have anything like the same attacking and creative ability as Bellerin though and is much more comfortable doing the defensive side of the role.
The other options are Rob Holding, although he is like Gabriel without the experience, and the young Ashley Maitland-Niles. The young Gunner came back strongly after a shaky start in the FA cup against Preston and he seems to give us something going forward.
So in a game that Arsenal need to win against the struggling Swans, should Wenger go for Maitland-Niles or Gabriel?
