A busy week is awaiting Arsenal as the team works on group betterment before the Champions League. The team has to face the Tottenham team in the North London Derby before the league. The approaching match could be a tough one for Arsenal as the team’s new coach has trained the team in his own way, which Arsenal may not be ready to face.
The Gunners have to face two closely approaching matches. This would be the chance for Tottenham’s manager Ange Postecoglou to get an insight into Arteta’s decision-making skills. This busy week could get in the way of the team’s win as the players will not be getting the proper time to rest, while the opposing team will be well-rested and ready to attack
Arsenal is also facing several injury issues currently, with Thomas Partey and Martinelli out of the match for an undefined time. This will be a crucial moment for Arteta to make some tough decisions on behalf of the team.
However, Arsenal has gained itself a new image with its latest wins. The manager can surely figure out some rotations in the team that would best fit the requirements of this week.
Here are some insights on the rotation plan that could be put into action by the boss
Arteta could have Ramsdale start in the midweek while Raya starts the North London derby match. This could give both the players adequate time to rest and revive their skills as needed.
The team has had a lot of “would’ve, could’ve, should’ve” situations, according to the spectators, as they question the manager’s player choices in the previous matches. With William Saliba injured, this could be the time to give Takehiro Tomiyasu and Jakub Kiwior a chance to show their skills, as they have had an impressive stance over the club this year.
Now should be the one time for Emile Smith Rowe to come to the front. The player has not been given the chance to shine so far in the team; now could rightly be his time. Jorginho will be playing as expected. The team’s beast, Declan Rice, should be a must on the team.
The team’s new rising talent, Fabio Vieira, should also be put on the team as the player is currently in a phase of good momentum. The spectators look forward to seeing the player on the field again.
The Arsenal captain, Martin Odegaard, was often seen sitting on the bench last season during the Europa League. The spectators are waiting to see if the same will be followed this season.
As the team has recently faced a lot of injuries, the team’s star Bukayo Saka, who only recently recovered from his injury, may need some rest during the busy week. The spectators believe that Kai Havertz could be used as a substitute for Saka.
While a lot has been said and a lot more can be said about the team lineup for the upcoming matches, in the end, it will be the boss who decides what is best for Arsenal.
