Arsenal: Duo Could Be The Next Attacking Force In The PL, Unlikely Star Named One To Watch

Here are the latest Arsenal updates worth your time.

The attacking duo of Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane ruled the Premier League until Mane's departure this summer. So, who will be the next attacking duo to take the Premier League by storm? Is it the Martinelli-Jesus duo? If Paul Scholes' assessment of the pair is correct, they could be the next attacking duo to make headlines in the Premier League. "Martinelli and Jesus have been a breath of fresh air at Arsenal," said Scholes, as per Metro. "Jesus coming in has probably taken a little bit of pressure off him as well because he’s only a young lad and Jesus is expected to score a lot of goals.

"With Jesus coming in, that seems to have taken the pressure off of Martinelli and he is flourishing right now."

In other news, Granit Xhaka was more of a defensive midfielder when Mikel Arteta took over than the attacking midfielder Arteta has turned him into. The Swiss international has settled into his new role well, and Michael Owen believes he is a player to keep an eye on because he could cause problems for Arsenal's opponents. "This season, he has been powering forward and getting involved in many more attacking areas. The touches in the opponent’s box this season compared to last season are a huge jump. Chances created, another huge jump and the shots as well," said Michael Owen.

"All of those point to the fact that he is getting into more forward positions. I never thought that I would say it, but you might have to watch out."
