It’s safe to say our Arsenal supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening are on cloud nine, having seen their side put up an incredibly disciplined display to take down arguably the best team in world football last night in the form of Bayern Munich.
Winning 2-0 on the evening, Petr Cech was in top form to shut down the likes of Robert Lewandowski and co as Arsenal maximised their inferior possession to hit the German champions twice for their first defeat this season.
Although the victory is fantastic in terms of Arsenal’s belief, giving them renewed hope of progressing through Group F, it’s pretty frustrating for the club’s supporters that they threw away six points in the first two group games against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos where Arsene Wenger strangely weakened the team.
Nevertheless, Arsenal will now head to Bayern Munich on gameweek four more hopeful than before that they can claim another positive result tot haul themselves back into contention.
Going great guns in the Premier League as well right now, on the whole, Arsenal have responded fantastically to their shock opening day defeat to West Ham United and with the likes of Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez staying fit so far this season, they’ve freely managed to score a lot of goals.
For many of our Gooners in the tavern, if the club are in touching distance of first place come the January transfer window, they’d love for Wenger to learn his lesson and strengthen with a couple of signings to get the North London side over the line.
If this proves to be the case, some current Arsenal stars might be exiting through the exit door and that’s why we’ve devised a list of five players who Wenger should perhaps axe from his squad in the New Year.
