Kieran Gibbs

Was Gibbs caught smoking after Southamptin too? I don’t understand why he’s not playing. Yes, Nacho Monreal has been good, but Gibbs has far more skill and potential, yet he never makes it on the field.

Gibbs and Bellerin should be the usual starting full backs, as they’re quite similar. Both have good attacking notions and don’t lose out on their defense because of it.

Yet, for some reason Gibbs has been confined to the bench. Hopefully he’ll be given a chance to play.
