2. Arsenal have plenty of striking competition
Despite strong calls for investment in the frontline, Arteta chose to stick with his existing options for this term and has arguably been vindicated after just four matches.
Injury to Gabriel Jesus (again) forced the boss to experiment up top and entrust Eddie Nketiah (again) with the centre-forward berth, and three goal contributions in three outings have repaid that faith in spades.
But the soon-to-be England international made way for a spirited Leandro Trossard against Fulham, while Jesus marked his return with a breakaway goal on Sunday and will expect to reclaim his starting position now that he is fully fit.
Their combined efforts have already made a big difference on the pitch and suggest Arsenal are better stocked up front than many previously thought – leaving us with quite the selection headache.
Of course, they will all get plenty of game time given the busy fixture schedule, but it will be interesting to see who is considered part of our ‘best’ eleven over the coming weeks.
