Bacary Sagna, Sead Hajrovic, Ignasi Miquel, Jernade Meade
Emmanuel Frimpong, Jack Wilshere,
Kristoffer Olsson, Nigel Neita, Chuba Akpom
That was yesterday’s team against Everton in the under 21 league. Jack played the whole game, had a hand in both goals, and had both scored by Tom Eisfeld.
In fact both were Wilshere-Eisfeld combinations. Superb. And Eisfeld could have had a third, when he hit the bar.
So, look at the team. Eisfeld, Wilshere, Sagna, Miquel, Frimpong, Akpom – all names to consider in the months to come. And normally you would have had Serge Gnabry, only he had played at Norwich.
Jack Wilshere has looked better each time he has come out – not just in terms of actually being able to play the full game, but in terms of confidence and readiness to play. Tomorrow against Shalke might be too soon, but he will be in the first team very shortly.
Sadly the Arsenal web site still hasn’t fixed the glitch that means you can’t see the under 21 league table – at least with any reliability – but I think that we are still second in the league.
Meanwhile we also have an amazing 14 players out on loan at the moment. The list runs
Eastmond, Aneke, Afobe, Watt, Roberts, Denilson, Park, Wellington, Campbell, Ryo, Bendtner, Gallindo, Henderson, Boateng.
We know of course some will not come back to Arsenal, but normally from a list of that size one or two do make it. Ryo, Campbell, Aneke, Afobe…
