Arsenal have turned a corner after a slow start to life under Unai Emery, winning seven matches in a row across all competitions.
The Gunners face two more games before October’s international break, travelling to Azerbaijan on Thursday to tackle Qarabag before a London derby against Fulham on Sunday – where Emery’s men will look to secure their sixth league victory on the bounce.
Arsenal have been boosted by the performances of their attacking players so far this season as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Danny Welbeck have all impressed in their first-team opportunities.
That has given Emery a major selection headache and he faces another tough call ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League clash with Fulham, as only one of the aforementioned forwards can lead the line in a 4-2-3-1 formation.
Lacazette was the player selected to lead the line in the victory against Watford, with Aubameyang playing out wide, but Emery should make a chance for the trip to Fulham by utilising the Gabon international through the middle.
Using a club-record signing out of position is a bizarre call, especially when Aubameyang is yet to register an assist this season – which shows he is much better at taking chances than providing them.
