With the transfer window now closed, Arsene Wenger can now look ahead to using his new signings and forget about the poor start to the season we have had. I would like to think that our season starts now.
Looking at the signings and sales we have made this summer, we will start to look at what Wenger has at his disposal and how he will play them.
Szczesny is our number one goalkeeper and I do not see him missing out on that spot. Our back four will now be easy to pick if everyone is fit: Sagna will be our right-back with our new Brazilian signing Santos at left-back. In the middle we will have Vermaelen and Per Mertesacker. That is a central defence pairing that is set to scare a lot of opposition strikers once they get working together as a team.
In midfield is where we have a lot of options to pick from now, all depending on what formation Wenger wants to use. For this purpose I will go for us using a 4-3-3 formation. Alex Song will be the enforcer in midfield with Wilshere and Arteta just in-front of him.
The attacking three will be spearheaded by Robin van Persie with Gervinho and Benayoun on either side of him. Depending on the opposition, we could bring in Walcott in place of Benayoun. The nice thing is we now have options on the bench as the likes of Ramsey and Frimpong will be on the bench. As we have let Bendtner go now, we bought in Park who in my opinion could start upfront with van Persie if we opt to play a 4-4-2. The important thing is that our defence now looks solid and we are a team capable of challenging on all fronts again.
We could easily have a bench which has: Fabianski, Ramsey, Walcott, Park, Gibbs, Arshavin and Koscielny. Now that is quality!
