It’s still only October, yet we’ve seen Arsenal coach have a great start to the campaign, look to be written off and then start to turn things around again. Gunners have had some positive results recently, and players coming back from injury can only help that.
It seems that two more footballers should be available again to face Sheffield on Monday. Alexandre Lacazette and Emile Smith-Rowe are available for selection again after overcoming their injuries. France international looks to be the most obvious candidate to play in the match, but a start might be a big ask considering he’s been out for a while.
Alexandre might struggle to force his way in front of Pierre Emerick Aubameyang in the club, but an alternative to Nicolas Pepe would be welcome to Spanish coach right now. Nicolas has started to resemble Gervinho as a highly touted signing from Ligue 1 club who might not live up to expectations.
He might still be settling into the PL, but his performances haven’t impressed so far. Smith-Rowe will be more of a fringe footballer who is more likely to play in the Carabao Cup, but he’s still handy to have around the team.
It already looks like Merseyside club will run away with the title this campaign so the second place might be the best that Gunners can hope for. When you consider the way, their campaign has been perceived so far, being only one point behind Man City is something the Gunners fans would probably have taken at the start of the season.
