Guendouzi and Saliba
Arsenal wantaway loanees Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba are continuously proving Mikel Arteta wrong. Arteta had “exiled” the duo because of a technical impasse in the bench which would not have guaranteed sufficient game time for the two players. However, the duo is being considered a rare phenomenon by the Marseille fans.
The two players have showcased outstanding performances both on the individual and team levels. This has ensured their first-team selection in the squad, and are now regulars in the starting eleven. William Saliba is the one who is getting more limelight because he is always energetic and dominant whenever he plays. Guendouzi on the other hand is always hands-on-deck but makes one or two mistakes which are normal for players who play in his position.
Arsenal’s rebellious midfielder Ainsley Maitland Niles is apparently becoming a fan favorite, especially after his dominant performance against Norwich City last weekend. Maitland Niles who plays as a utility player was very “reliable” last week and fans have rooted for his selection in today’s showdown against Burnley.
With the availability of Sambi Lokonga and Thomas Party being in doubt, Maitland Niles stands a good chance of replacing either of the players as a starter today. Mohammed Elneny will also be seeking to secure a spot in today’s line up but fans are worried that Elneny will play his traditional “safe ball” game style. Therefore, Maitland Niles who is a risk-taker should be prioritized before Elneny at all costs.
Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta has informed the Arsenal fans that gunning down Burnley on their home turf will be an uphill task, but he believes that his team is more than ready to take on the challenge. He said that despite the occasional shortcomings in the squad with regards to injuries and morale issues, he is sure that today’s squad will deliver what the fans want after 90 minutes.
