EA’s FIFA franchise was once in a head-to-head battle with rival video game Pro Evolution Soccer, in a bid to gain the largest video gaming football fan base.

Arsenal fans are sure to be part of the thousands who pre-order, or even queue up outside stores nationwide, waiting for the midnight release date. Each one itching to start their new campaigns and attempt to bring what has been craved for eight years now, and that is to win a trophy.

Over the past two or three FIFA editions, it has become evident that some Arsenal squad players are destined to become world greats, while there are others who desperately need replacement. Armed with a budget of £24,000,000, here’s who I feel should start that first game of the Premier League season for the Gunners on FIFA 14.
