Arsenal balls: Kieran Gibbs on the right, Bellerin busiest man in football, Joel Campbell derided
Arsenal are battling with their annual long list of injuries. The Mail has a question:
Wenger has ‘trust’ in medical staff amid injury crisis…but how will his Arsenal team line up at Swansea without these men?’
Crisis. Eight players are injured. But Arsenal are big club with a deep squad of players. And the Mirror has an answer:
Kieran Gibbs as a winger. What madness. What utter balls. Has the Mirror’s writer seen one-footed left-footer Gibbs play? Does Hector Bellerin, Arsenal’s right-back, stand a chance?
The Telegraph comes up with an even nuttier solution:
Did Wenger consider that? No. He tells everyone who can play on the right side of midfield against Swansea:
Campbell and Alex Iwobi. Santi can play there as well but he has become very important centrally. The problem sometimes is that you can destroy two departments if you move one player out. We control the ball better with Santi in the middle.
Mention of Gibbs: none. Arsenal fans can relax a little.
