The left side of defence has proved to be a surprisingly contentious position at Arsenal this season. Summer signing Sead Kolasinac initially held down the left wing-back role in the Gunners’ 3-4-3 formation, but a switch to four at the back has seen the Bosnian international come out of the side – first replaced by promising youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles and then veteran full-back Nacho Monreal.
The Spaniard – who Transfermarkt value at £11.7million – has been Arsene Wenger’s preferred option in recent weeks and provided an impressive supply of goals and assists, bagging two apiece in his last four games. But it appears not every Arsenal fan thinks the 31-year-old is the club’s strongest candidate at left-back.
Indeed, we asked Arsenal fans earlier this week to vote for which player should start at left-back against Tottenham and although Monreal received the strongest percentage in our poll, 55% of supporters chose Maitland-Niles or Kolasinac instead.
