Arsenal suffered their first defeat since the opening day of the season on Tuesday night as they let a 1-0 lead slip at Goodison Park and lost 2-1. The Gunners were very poor in truth and started to look a little fatigued. With Mustafi out injured, the Gunners seriously struggled to dominate defensively and therefore invited pressure and in the end let two headers in. Things need to change for the game against Manchester City – here’s three changes Arsene Wenger should make.
1. Alex Iwobi for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain
Iwobi has not been in the best of form recently, but after Oxlade-Chamberlain poor performance against Everton, I feel the Nigerian would benefit from coming back into the line up. Iwobi has a lot of talent and can play well in central areas as well as wide, and that’s why I’d opt for him ahead of Chamberlain on the left. He gives us a bit more control of the midfield in attacking areas, and the Gunners really struggled to get that at Goodison Park this week. With all these games over this busy winter period, it is also very important to keep things fresh and rotate – especially in midfield.
