Arsenal's Best Possible Starting XI?


#242

Yeah Bellerin and Mkhitaryan were the ones I was unsure about.

Didn’t think two full backs there would be ideal if we want to have some creative possession when building up and countering. Mkhi’s quite a versatile player given his attributes. You could easily put Kolasinac/Monreal down the left side and Lichtsteiner on the right if we’re playing it extra safe but it does invite more pressure.

Bellerin’s mainly there because at some stage there does need to be a counter and our midfield and defence needs outlets. Bellerin still has the ability to transition quickly from a defensive position to getting behind the full backs.
