Ahead of Arsenal’s home game in the Champions League against Dinamo Zagreb this evening, our resident Gooners in the Football Transfer Tavern are still seething about Saturday’s missed opportunity away at West Bromwich Albion.
Taking the lead relatively early on, the Gunners simply pressed the self-destruct button on a weekend whereby the likes of Leicester City, Manchester United and Tottenham capitalised.
The manner in which Arsenal defended at The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon, not to mention an injury picked up by Francis Coquelin that’ll keep the Gunners’ linchpin out of action for three months made it a day to forget for the men from North London.
Add into the mix the fact that West Brom only registered a single shot on target to eventually succeed 2-1, not to mention the horrific last gasp penalty miss by Santi Cazorla and you can see why this particular loss has proved hard to shake in the minds of Arsenal fans.
With Coquelin now out for a huge portion of the season, the Gunners would be wise to replace him with a top quality replacement in January but today it is a striker that Metro claim is interesting Arsenal right now.
The player is Inter Milan’s clinical forward Mauro Icardi who is struggling at the San Siro after being made captain at the start of the season. With this potential swoop in mind, how would he look in the Gunners’ best eleven?
