Mikel Arteta Speaks Of A Special Arsenal Player Who Could Keep Arsenal's Title Hopes Alive

Arteta's attack will be the position he is most concerned about after the World Cup. Losing Gabriel Jesus to injury was not planned, but it has occurred, putting Arsenal's attack in jeopardy. Jesus, despite his inconsistent goal scoring, had boosted Arsenal's attack. If he did not score, he would set up his teammates to score by providing assists and creating chances. Arteta has been tipped to fill his void in a variety of ways.

One option is to use Gabriel Martinelli as the striker. Martinelli as a striker could work; the Brazilian has five league goals in 14 games so far. But what happens to the left wing? According to Arteta's most recent comments, the left wing may be in good hands even without Martinelli. Emile Smith-Rowe is on his way back to fitness, according to Arteta. "With Emile, he has returned to training," said Arteta.

"He’s in that process after we rehabbed, after a period where he had some real discomfort.

"So we are giving him time; he’s getting closer and closer. So hopefully in the next few weeks, we’ll be able to see him."

We all know how powerful Smith-Rowe can be on Arsenal's wings. Arsenal's title hopes could be revived if Arteta can include Saka, Smith-Rowe, and Martinelli in his attack in Jesus' absence.
