Sead Kolasinac made an almost immediate impression after arriving at Arsenal on a free transfer during the summer. After floating in and out of the first team during the opening few weeks of the campaign, the Bosnian international quickly made the role on Arsenal’s left defensive flank his own.
He’s gone on to bag an impressive four assists in the English top flight, but the former Schalke star has surprisingly found himself excluded from Arsenal’s last two Premier League squads – all the more surprisingly ahead of a fixture in which he would be lined up against the deadliest attacker in the division so far this season, Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah.
After playing the full ninety minutes against West Ham in midweek, Kolasinac – who Transfermarkt value at £13.5million – looks set to miss out once again on Friday night when the Reds travel to the Emirates Stadium.
But we asked Arsenal fans earlier this week whether the powerful defender should be in the starting XI and according to our poll, an incredible 91% think he should. How would you set up Arsenal’s defensive ranks with Kolasinac included? Let us know by commenting below…
