Although a few of their younger players didn’t grasp their big chance in Arsenal’s shock Capital One Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday last month, given the Gunners’ annual injury crisis they’re suffering at the moment, we think a few more lesser known names could make Arsene Wenger’s matchday squad before the end of 2015/16.
Both Glen Kamara and Ismael Bennacer received run outs at Hillsborough in a hugely forgettable fourth round exit back in October and Wenger admitted himself in his post-game interviews that the youngsters didn’t look ready fot football at the senior level.
With the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere missing so far this season, Arsenal’s matchday squads have looked threadbare of late with the likes of Alex Iwobi and Jeff Reine-Adelaide being the only real game-changers on the bench despite their relative inexperience.
One of our wise punters by the bar claims that if any more first team stars get injured before the January transfer window, Wenger might not have any other choice but to blood some more talents from his academy who will hopefully fare a lot better than both Kamara and Bennacer.
So with this in mind, we’ve devised a list of five Gunners kids who could be tasting first team action before the current season is out next May.
