Front Three

There are definitely options here, but Mikel Arteta won’t try to get cute here. He’s going to start his most experienced, most proven attacking options and not mess around with trying to squeeze a Reiss Nelson or Eddie Nketiah in there.

Alexandre Lacazette will start up top as the sole striker and he’ll be flanked on either side by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe.

This is where the money will be made. We need these three to be at their absolute best and take their chances. I worry about Aubameyang having a come down after such determination against Watford. I worry about Lacazette’s confidence issues. I worry about Pepe getting involved.

Basically I just worry about a lot.
