There are many compelling selection calls for Mikel Arteta to make, the likes of which will be discussed in detail. aside from the whistle full time. They are always like that. One by one.

Michael Carrick has his own decision to make a surprising departure Cristiano Ronaldo dropped out of the starting line-up to face Chelsea last time out, a call that resulted in an angry reaction from the 36-year-old.

Whether or not experience becomes vital will play a part in deciding whether Kieran Tierney gets the nod against Nuno Tavares, who has continued his high form on the team since Scot’s injury.

Martin Odegaard will be just as desperate as Alexandre Lacazette to be in the starting line-up against United although he would love his chance of being picked against Newcastle, all eyes on whether Bukayo Saka can passed to start or not.

Due to being assessed during Wednesday’s training, Arteta said that he was ‘hoping’ of 20-year-old youth participated. As supporters will well know, the manager tends to hold his cards close to his chest and isn’t always one to be outspoken when it comes to team news.

Even if he does, ‘hopefully’ isn’t the definite answer fans might want.

3. Emile Smith Rowe

But he should only play on the left wing that he likes. Having excelled in both the No 10 and the left winger, it was his best second position and there was no reason to move him away. Likewise, don’t experiment more with Saka, whose right position is his inverted groove.

There is nothing to say that Smith Rowe cannot play well on the right wing. It was not the right decision to take part in a game of this caliber. You shouldn’t fall for the spell of playing your best players in their best positions in this case.

Of Arsenal’s five attacking lanes, the reason Smith Rowe works so well on the left flank is that he can pick the 2nd lane of that lane (going from left to right) while on the opposite flank he will asked to pick up 5th Place more often. Takehiro Tomiyasu intermittently provides width and when he masters running late to the box, the chance to do so would be greater if he played closer to goal.

If he is moved to the right that also means that Martinelli will play on the left, and with Aubameyang in the team There are two players on that side, who can usually be found in the same areas. The structure of the front line will be out of balance.
