Simply Not Good Enough: 3 Arsenal Players Who Should Step Up After The International Break


Arsenal has been one of the most consistent teams for the past couple of decades, as Arsene Wenger has been known for his ability to create competitive squads even if he doesn’t have the best players in the world like most of his competitors.

Part of Wenger’s philosophy is to let go those players who are capable of giving way more but seem stuck and uncomfortable in the team, so you know that if you don’t deliver for the manager, you might as well pack your bags, as you’ll be getting kicked out of North London anytime soon.

The Gunners are on the verge of an outstanding season, and they want to break that curse that has kept them in the top four every single year without being able to actually win a title and in order to do that, some of the players that aren’t having the best season of their careers right now, need to step up if they want to remain as a part of this team.

Today, we’ll discuss the performances of three players who should work to get their groove back after the international break in order to help Arsenal reach the top of the table.

Olivier Giroud

The French striker hasn’t been exactly a fan favourite since his highly hyped arrival from French side Montpellier and during this season, he hasn’t been able to contribute due to a serious injury that kept him sidelined for a very long time.

Giroud is a very decent offensive player overall, and he’s shown that he’s more than ready to contribute in his first couple of games since coming back from injury. However, the team looks like they’ve moved on from him confirming an outstanding offensive trio with Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott.

So, Giroud’s gonna need to embrace the substitute role and contribute off the bench, as they’re going to need another reliable option when they’re having troubles to harm the opposing defenses.
