Arsenal’s latest horror show at Liverpool will force many fans to look back to a missed opportunity in the January window for Arsene Wenger to strengthen his side.
Yes, the result at Anfield was a freak occurrence for a side whose centre-backs especially have been among the best in the Premier League this season, but looking at the squad as a whole, it’s clear where Arsenal are lacking.
It also means that the club need to start thinking about what needs to be done in the summer, putting together a list of names who can add genuine quality to the side, rather than scrambling at the last minute in search for knock-down fees.
Arsenal currently have a good blend of youth and experience, as well as a good base to work with. There are a large number of very good players throughout the continent who would cost very little and make Arsenal a much better title-contending unit.
