Arsenal’s ended their ore-season game on a very positive notes, winning a star-studded Manchester City side. Invariably, this has given the team the psychological balance needed to be able to thump any opposition.
We kick off the season with a game against Liverpool at the Emirates this Saturday but we are without several of our first team players – Oliver Giroud and Lauren Koscielny returned somewhat late due to their extended holidays while Mertesacker, Gabriel and Wishere are out with injuries.
The recent injury to Gabriel Paulista meant Wenger is condemned to sign a centre-back before this weekend. The first player that comes to mind is Valencia’s Shkodran Mustafi and we understand Arsenal have prepared £20million which they will offer before tomorrow for the player.
Wenger may have a bit of selection headache in midfield but the attack and defense seems quite thin to make choice from. And so this is how we think Arsenal will line up with Mustafi as the new centre back.
