Arguably the biggest game for Arsenal in the Premier League this season, We host Chelsea tomorrow and the outcome of the game tomorrow might determine how we fare in subsequent games.
For the first time in a long while, Wenger has a large and fit squad to select from, which has posed a selection problem. Nonetheless, this is a good problem for the French tactician.
Speaking ahead of the derby match, Wenger revealed that he is somewhat confused about the selection to make. He was asked if Granit Xhaka will start in the game following the player’s form and tactical awareness.
“We had a good game at Hull and we had a good game at Nottingham Forest,” replied Wenger. “I believe that everybody at the moment deserves to start the game and be in the squad, so I will decide that today [Friday].
“[The players have responded] very well [to the competition]. It’s always difficult to pick my team because everybody is doing well, we have seen that again against Nottingham Forest so it’s positive.
“We have a balanced, mature squad where there is a fight for every single position.”
