3. Reiss Nelson deserves more minutes

While Nelson was guilty of missing a couple of chances against Liverpool, he was the best attacking outlet for the Gunners in a front line that had Saka - which says a lot.

He has all the tools needed to be an explosive winger for Arteta, but he just needs consistent minutes. Clearly a product of being behind Saka and Martinelli in the pecking order, but Nelson showed enough to suggest he could/should start far more often.
