Arsenal Relying Too Much On Youngsters?

Football Express

Arsenal has endured their worst start to a league campaign in almost half a century (1974-75). But, the gunners are planning to have youngsters for the upcoming transfers as a productive option.

Arsenal‘s last win in a domestic match came on November 1 in an impressive 1-0 win at Old Trafford since then Arsenal have fallen off a cliff. Without a win in nearly 50 days, during which Arsenal were knocked out of the Carabao Cup.

A poor run of results meant that they find themselves 4 points above relegation spots ahead of the Boxing day fixture against Chelsea.

It is no doubt that Arsenal has one of the best talents in Europe at their disposal. Likes of Matteo Guendouzi, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and William Saliba have bright futures in front of them.

What has gone wrong?

Back in August, after a fantastic FA Cup victory, everyone expected a strong season from Arsenal with a young manager at the helm. Fast forward 4 months, Mikel Arteta’s job is far from secure.

Club captain and talisman Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has been the most disappointing player this season. With one goal from open play all season, Arsenal’s fortunes lie in the hands of the Gabonese international. However, Gunner’s poor form can be linked to Arsenal’s midfield. With Mesut Ozil frozen out of the squad, Gunner’s lack a creative midfielder.

Arsenal’s youngsters this season!

Eddie Nketiah, Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson, Bukayo Saka, Kieran Tierney have all played for Arsenal this season. Even though Kieran Tierney and Bukayo Saka have been so promising. But the likes of Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah have been underwhelming.

Matteo Guendouzi after his feud with manager Mikel Arteta is spending this season on loan with Hertha Berlin. One of the most consistent players under Unai Emery, the 21-year-old French Midfielder can certainly improve that fragile Arsenal midfield.

“Martinelli’s pretty much the same age but he’s a talent of the century, he’s an incredible striker”

Jurgen Klopp on Gabriel Martinelli

Gabriel Martinelli recently returned from a long term injury. And his display against Manchester City showed why the young Brazilian is compared to R9 Ronaldo in Brazil. Quick, direct, and press-machine Martinelli is exactly the kind of player Arsenal needs to respond to a poor run of results.
