Now there is a turn up for the books! Arsenal’s striker in the early rounds of the Europa League was Olivier Giroud, in partnership with Theo Walcott as he partner, but now both of those have been sold. Aubameyang is cup-tied for this competition and now Lacazette is out for six weeks after knee surgery.
This really only leaves Danny Welbeck as our only recognised centre-forward and he has only just returned from injury and has only had a cameo performance lately. I guess Wenger could move Mkhitaryan into the centre and pair him with Alex Iwobi, and Mesut Ozil behind.
There is always Aaron Ramsey, who was injured for the Tottenham game but scored a hat-trick against Everton the week before. That is if he is recovered enough to play on Thursday!
What about Sead Kolasinac as a wild card, he likes to take wild shots when he gets a chance, or even our Jack. I’m sure he would love to have a chance to play in the middle.
Okay, I’m clutching at straws now, but how would you set up our forward line without our two main strikers?
