2. Kai Havertz

Yet again, Kai Havertz proved his worth to the Arsenal team at the weekend. The Germany international has been a revelation since signing, particularly in the 2024 calendar year.

Kai Havertz scored against Chelsea and Tottenham in the space of five days. In fact, in the last two games, Havertz has scored three goals and provided an assist.

What an assist it was, too. Havertz demonstrated a complete display against Tottenham, not only getting on the score-sheet but providing an excellent cross-field pass to set Bukayo Saka on his usual rampage.

As one of the most in-form Arsenal players, Havertz simply MUST start for Arsenal vs Bournemouth. To bring back an old saying, Arteta must "strike while the iron's hot" and capitalise on Havertz' impressive form of late.
