With Henrikh Mkhitaryan cup-tied, an Arsenal victory in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday will require some effective re-jostling of their forward line from Arsene Wenger, the ultimate point of contention being the left flank – Mesut Ozil looks set to create play from the right, while January signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will almost certainly lead the line.
Following the departure of Alexis Sanchez, the north London outfit don’t exactly boast an embarrassment of riches in that position. But the main candidates to face Manchester City there on Sunday are England international Danny Welbeck and 21-year-old Alex Iwobi.
We put that exact selection headache to Arsenal fans earlier this week, and it was the latter who came out on top in our poll with a convincing 73% of Gunners supporters voting in his favour.
The Nigerian international hasn’t always impressed this term but it appears Arsenal fans back him far more than Welbeck, whose campaign has once again been disrupted by injury problems.
