Martinelli should be given more game time to develop while Saka should not be over exploited or he will burn out/injured.Arteta has destroyed the next talent after Martinelli, hasn't he?
Starting to hit a wall a little bit. Now's the time where he needs a little rotation and some cameos rather than starts. Think it's time to give ESR the nod at LW for a few games. Opens up the left channel a little more for our patented "Pass to Tierney" tactic.
Pepe seems to be the wildcard at the moment. Too much end product to drop.I think Mikels plan is ESR left and Saka right, however Pepe always seems to chip in with a goal/assist.
Did you watch the game though? He was poor first half. Came into it in the second.Just watched the highlights and Saka was at the heart of everything we done. Big role in the goal (bit of luck as well), near scored and could have had an assist. The numbers will come.
If I watched the game I would have said that. I watched the highlights and he was involved in pretty much everything we done. I'd be worried if he wasn't involved in a short 5 minute highlight reel. As he was then I'm content knowing the numbers will follow sooner rather than laterDid you watch the game though? He was poor first half. Came into it in the second.
No need to concern, because he is class and that will shine through. Although we could use him finding some form for the next month or so.
He has played a lot of football but I think Arteta is in a hard spot. He is one of our better players and if he is left out people will say wtf. Might be handy that we have no European football as he will only have 1 game a week.He look tired to me, made a lot of mistakes too. Looks a lot better playing for England.
