Arsenal Future Formations

What the Emirates Stadium starting eleven might look like in a couple of seasons time.

Check in to Arsenal vs Bayern Munchen

Wojciech Szczesny

Goalkeeper: Wojciech Szczesny

We tip the young Pole will to still be between the sticks.

Left-Back: Nacho Monreal

The Spanish international already looks the part and is successfully eradicating the memory of Andre Santos. Expect Kieran Gibbs to be in a supporting role as his injury woes look likely to continue.

Centre-Back: Thomas Vermaelen

Of the three current first team centre-backs we see the Belgian lasting the distance but perhaps he will have handed the captain’s armband to Jack Wilshere by then.

Soccer - International Friendly - England v France - Wembley Stadium

Centre-Back: Mamadou Sakho

We tip Arsenal to bring in this long term target from PSG, by the time 2014/15 comes into view the big spending Ligue 1 side will have bought umpteen bigger, but not necessarily better, names to fill the centre-back slots.

Right-Back: Carl Jenkinson

Despite his red card last week we feel that the young full-back will be firmly in place at right-back, Bacary Sagna having departed.

Left-Wing: Lukas Podolski

German to continue in his wide attacking berth, already a cult hero at the North London club expect the goal-scoring wide-man to be an even bigger favourite.

Chieck Tiote

Defensive-Midfield: Cheick Tiote

We envisage Arsene Wenger landing the Magpies tough tackler to offer balance to the club’s midfield.

Wilshere Deal

Central-Midfield: Jack Wilshere

Captain Jack. By the time 2014/15 comes around every member of Europe’s ‘Elite’ will be doggedly chasing the England man.

Right-Wing: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

This current campaign has been a mixed bag for the young attacker but we reckon he will be back in regular first team action by 2014/15.

Jovetic Chelsea

Support Striker: Stevan Jovetic

Fiorentina man to be in place as Arsenal’s supporting striker.

Striker: Theo Walcott

Transition to striker complete we can see the England striker to have been converted into a prolific marksman by 2014/15.
