The Premier League is expected to restart next month and Mikel Arteta will be looking forward to it as it returns when most of his injured players have returned from the sidelines. Arsenal have always suffered many injuries throughout the season but we today take a look at what can be Mikel Arteta’s best starting when everybody is fit.
Mikel Arteta got appointed as the new head coach of Arsenal in December last year and we have in three months seen how he wants his side to play and the players that suit the playing style that he wants to bring to the Emirates Stadium. And so we look at his best starting eleven depending on his needs.
ARSENAL’S STARTING ELEVEN WITH EVERYONE FIT
TEXT FORM: Leno, Tierney, Luiz, Mustafi, Bellerin, Xhaka, Ceballos, Saka, Ozil, Pepe, Aubameyang
Bernd Leno arrived at Arsenal in 2018 and he has turned out to be a great signing as he has been one of their best players this season and Emiliano Martinez will have to work hard to have any chance of removing him from being the first choice goalkeeper.
Kieran Tierney has not had a great debut season but we did have a glimpse at his abilities in the few matches he played and you would truly tell that he will be one of the best left backs in the league if he stays fit. Bellerin despite having been poor this season is still Arsenal’s best right back and so him and Tierney are the best fullbacks at the club. Mustafi and Luiz are the best ball playing centre backs in the squad and since Arteta likes that a lot then these two will be starting ahead of others a lot this season.
Arteta favoured Torreira over Ceballos in the games that were played before the league got suspended and so since him and Xhaka are great at the build up of attacks, Arteta will be hopeful of making them a strong pivot that could help him in making Arsenal a possession based football club.
Some believe that Bukayo Saka should be turned into a left back after his impressive performances there but his future is certainly at left wing and he is the best one in the squad at the moment. Ozil despite his flaws is the only central attacking midfielder in the squad and Pepe is the best right winger at the squad.
Aubameyang is better when played in the striking role and so it’s no surprise that he would make it to Arteta’s best starting eleven when everyone is fit.
