‘7-0 incoming’ – Arsenal fans are preparing for a bad day against Manchester City after shock Arsene Wenger selection decision

Arsenal fans cannot believe it…

Lacazette has impressed since his big move from Lyon in the summer, but Wenger has often looked reluctant to use the striker in the big games, having also benched him in the 4-0 defeat to Liverpool back in August.

As well as benching Lacazette, Wenger has also reverted to a back four today, having used a back three and wing-backs for most games since the end of last season.

That tactical change had mixed results for Arsenal, though it’s unclear why Wenger has suddenly decided to tweak things in that area with his side in relatively good form.

All in all, Arsenal fans have pretty much given up on getting a result today already…
