Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have gathered early ahead of today’s Premier League finale with Everton, where the Gunners’ Champions League hopes hang in the balance.
Even the most optimistic punters in the bar are struggling to see Middlesbrough or Watford do them a favour today and believe that their side should just accept their Europa League fate, turning their attention towards the FA Cup final.
Arsenal fans have been impressed by their side’s revitalised form following the switch to a three-man defence and Arsene Wenger’s recent experiments, which include utilising Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as a wing-back and handing opportunities to Rob Holding, have been extremely successful.
It’s because of that upturn in form that fans are hoping to see something a little different from Wenger’s team selection today, as they’re seeking a fresh look to the starting line-up that hands opportunities to two fringe players.
Our landlord agrees there is certainly no harm in trying and he’s accepted these two potential additions to the starting line-up could be extremely effective.
