Mikel Arteta deserves time from Edu, according to Arsenal’s strongest XI following the transfer window.
Arsenal spent about £150 million this summer, making them the Premier League’s largest spenders…
Mikel Arteta is on borrowed time at the Emirates Stadium, to say the least, but his strongest Arsenal XI believes he deserves more time. Arsenal are currently anchored to the bottom of the Premier League table with zero points from three games, having scored zero goals and conceding nine.
Arsenal and Adidas have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which is based on the club’s motto of “Arsenal for everyone.”
The 5-0 thrashing at Manchester City last Saturday was perhaps the lowest point of Arteta’s reign, and the former Arsenal midfielder appeared to be on his way out.
But, for good reason, he is expected to be granted at least a brief window of time to turn things around.
While Arsenal’s tactics, performance levels, and overall mentality have all been questionable, they have been without a number of key players.
Not only that, but the newcomers haven’t had much time to settle in. Ben White, for example, has been isolated after testing positive for COVID-19 following his Arsenal debut against Brentford on the season’s first day.
Aaron Ramsdale, a £24 million goalkeeper, deserves a chance over Bernd Leno, who has struggled since being challenged by Emiliano Martinez.
Ramsdale made an impression on his debut, keeping a clean sheet in a 6-0 Carabao Cup win over West Bromwich Albion, and he deserves a shot at starting at No 1. He wasn’t signed to sit on the bench, especially when that money could have been better spent elsewhere.
Kieran Tierney is the undisputed first-choice left-back in defense, while Gabriel Magalhaes has yet to make an appearance this season as he continues his rehabilitation from injury.
Rob Holding, Callum Chambers, and Pablo Mari are all below average, and £50 million man White should be a significant upgrade on all of them, especially when alongside Gabriel.
Day of the deadline for signing Takehiro Tomiyasu is a tough, no-nonsense defender who will bolster the backline and start at right-back right away.
Thomas Partey has suffered with injuries since joining from Atletico Madrid last summer, while Granit Xhaka’s temper has to improve following his last red card versus City.
