4) The return of the speed demon
Arsenal are plagued with injuries at the moment, and it is certainly not an unusual circumstance that the Gunners find themselves in.
Arsene Wenger is famous for his “like a new signing” quotes, and while it may be a bit of a cliche, the Frenchman is not entirely wrong.
Theo Walcott is expected back after the upcoming international break, and his pace and vastly improved finishing had become a key part of Arsenal before his untimely injury last season.
With Arsenal’s deadline day signing Danny Welbeck flanked by Alexis Sanchez on one wing and Walcott on the other, the Gunners will have pace to burn going forward and will be a frightening prospect for any team.
It’s unwise to rely too much on one player, but the reintroduction of the English speedster could drastically change Arsenal’s season for the better.
