12. Alexandre Lacazette

The Frenchman scored some great goals for Arsenal and, in fairness, probably shouldn’t have been given the captain’s armband but alas, he makes this list in a poor number 12 spot.

He only played half a season as Arsenal captain, when his good friend and strike partner Aubameyang lost his captaincy. The manner in which he left will leave a bitter taste in the mouths of Arsenal fans as he left on a free deal.

Still, this isn’t entirely the fault of the player as better contract management would’ve fixed the issue.

11. Laurent Koscielny

Thinking back, Koscielny is one of my favourite Arsenal defenders of the Premier League era. He was consistent and always gave his all. However, he is low in this list because his time as captain was shambolic.

He only played one season as Arsenal captain under the management of Unai Emery. It was by no means his best season and towards the end of it, he flat out refused to play any games and pushed for a move back to France. For this reason, Koscielny can stay low on this list.
