Arsene Wenger has hailed his current group of attackers, claiming it’s the best he’s had in his Arsenal career.
Wenger has spent 21 years at Arsenal and has managed the likes of Ian Wright and Thierry Henry but the tactician believes his current strikers are the best he’s had as a group.
The French man has Alexis Sanchez, Olivier Giroud, Lucas Perez, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott at his disposal and while we’v had better players individually, one can’t deny that the current players have done well this season as a group.
Sanchez is currently joint top scorer in the Premier League with 15 goals while Giroud has scored key goals for us already this season. Theo Walcott has already bettered his best goal tally in an Arsenal shirt while Danny Welbeck bagged a brace last weekend in what was only his second game of the season and when asked if it was the best selection he’s ever had, Wenger said:
“I think certainly numbers-wise and quality-wise together.”
With all the strikers now fit, one key issue Wenger may face is keeping all of them happy but it appears the boss has carved out a way to keep everyone happy.
“Sometimes you consider the problem you face, sometimes you consider the fitness of the players, the fact they have played three days before,” he added.
“You just try to be honest in your decision and keep everybody on board. It is important to stay in all the competitions because, if you have one game every week and you have several strikers, good luck keeping them happy!
It is impossible because they all get annoyed but they have a different way of showing it. They are all committed to the club, though.”
Indeed it’s very impossible to keep everyone happy but we’d rather have the problem of keeping them happy than that of not having enough options.
