Mikel Arteta’s first game in charge of Arsenal could define how Arsenal fans would look at him and his coaching staff for the rest of his stay at Arsenal.
Arteta taking over the job as manager is a great thing to have happened to arsenal this season, although some Arsenal experts do think it is not the right time for him to be appointed as the manager of the club.
Arteta’s first game is a trip to AFC Bournemouth and in our Preview, the Spaniard could unleash a front three lineup against the Cherries consisting of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexander Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe.
Arsenal are desperately in need of a turnaround at this time and the manager could be making use of an attacking lineup in search of goals since one of the issues at the club is goalscoring. Arteta has a superb front line consisting of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexander Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe.
Playing the three men upfront is a nice idea that could spring up goals. Then again, the midfield isn’t working properly and it is up to to manager to look for measures that would make it work.
The players at Arsenal need to bounce back, a three points target at the Vitality Stadium isn’t bad. The manager need to work on his attack, the midfield and the defense. In goal, Bernd Leno is up to the task, Arsenal’s problems lies in the attack and the players need bounce back to fix the problem.
Top players performing at their peak in recent matches, Aubameyang, Martinelli and Nicolas Pepe should get a start as it would be a wise idea to start players that are performing.
The Gunners currently sit eleventh on the Premier League, once again marking another worst start to the Premier League campaign.
