There have been quite a few success stories at Arsenal Football Club this season when it comes to our individual players and their performances. As well as some excellent showings from last summer’s transfer additions Alexis Sanchez, David Ospina, Danny Welbeck and Calum Chambers, there have been Gunners like Giroud, Ozil and Coquelin showing vast improvements.
Two of the players that highlight this are the two Spanish full backs Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal so it may seem strange to call for the left back to be dropped for the away game at Hull City later, but I just think that the game will be more suited to our England international Kieran Gibbs.
Arsene Wenger suggested this week that Gibbs has been playing through niggling injury problems this season but that he is now fully fit and ready to go, so I reckon we should unleash his pace and attacking instincts on the Tigers of Steve Bruce.
Their 3-5-2 system makes them compact but also vulnerable to good use of the flanks and you must agree that Gibbs and Bellerin are our best attacking full backs. I bet Gibbs will be raring to go as well after seeing Monreal play very well in his place for much of the season. He has an England place to nail down as well and I think this could be the perfect game to showcase his talents. Would you start with him or Monreal?
