The international break is finally over and we can now, after what can only be described as a gruelling two week wait, get back to watching our beloved Arsenal.
The only decent thing that came out of the break was giving our injured players more time to recuperate, such as Jack Wilshere, who looks like he is ready to go if Arsene Wenger gives him the nod.
Just before the international games took place, The Gunners managed to beat West Ham 3-1 at Upton Park after initially going down a goal.
So next on our list is Norwich City at Carrow Road – a tough away game, but certainly one that the lads can win by a great margin.
Theo Walcott looks set to miss the next two games after picking up an injury against San Marino, while Lukasz Fabianski is out for three months after suffering a setback on the road to recovery. Abou Diaby, Tomas Rosicky, Wojciech Szczesny are all still a few weeks from a return to first-team action. On the bright side, it looks like Wilshere is back in contention.
So taking this all into account, what should our starting line-up look like?
Here is how I would play it:
Jenkinson Mertesacker Vermaelen Gibbs
The back five pretty much speaks for it self, while Mikel Arteta and Santi Cazorla are both certainties.
Wenger has opted to play Aaron Ramsey lately and the Welshman has done well when called upon, but I’d like to see Francis Coquelin get the nod, as the Frenchman will be needed in midfield to get stuck in against a dogged Norwich side.
Gervinho will likely start, but I hope to see Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain start following good performances in an England shirt.
Lukas Podolski should start on the left and the industrious Olivier Giroud would lead the line if it was up to me. But hey, I’m not Wenger. These are just my views on the matter.
So, who do you guys reckon should start for us tomorrow evening against Norwich?
