Arsenal players were happy at the end of the 1-1 match against West Brom. Two reasons: They had fought and fought hard for a draw and a well-deserved one too; the draw also meant the international break finds them at top of the table. The game exposed some of Arsenal’s weaknesses and strengths:
1. Wilshere is not a winger
Wenger has done well…and also been lucky when playing some players out of position. This has gone well with Ramsey, Cazorla among others. However, Wilshere lacks speed to not only attack but also defend. He constantly lost the ball on the wings which led to quick counter attacks by WBA. In the middle of the pack, however he shows his potential and exerts his influence well.
