With Arsenal in red hot form these past few weeks, fans and pundits and critics alike have jumped on the bandwagon to hail Wenger and his boys. Impressive wins over Bayern and Everton has seen Manuel Pellegrini advised to adopt same tactics if he were to win the league title with Man City. Indeed certain elements believe that finally Arsenal will win the league title this season.
Well boys, it isn’t uhuru just yet. This recent form has seen the squad depleted and threadbare. In a bizarre like manner, club captain Mikel Arteta sustained an injury during training before the Everton match meaning that he has joined Wilshere, Ramsey and Rosicky on the sidelines for a spell. With the London club level on the table with Manchester City on points, the injuries suffered will take a huge toll on the team and this is why Wenger must utilize the Capital one cup match against Sheffield United to rest key members of the squad.
The likes of Santi Carzola, Mesut Ozil and Francis Coquelin who have been ever present for the team must be rested in view of the league match this weekend and the champions league next week. With these men being rested, who then will Arsene Wenger look to call on? Wenger has been known to give young players the opportunity to shine in cup matches and as such will want to use this cup match to see what his crop of youngsters have to offer. A particular name that crops out for us to watch out for will be Krystain Bielik. This midfielder has been compared various times to Patrick Vieira and its time he starts proving himself.
