Regardless of new signings, if Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could get all his best players on the park at once they would be some side. Let’s have a look at the best team of 2014, based on performances and contribution.
Had possibly his best campaign at Arsenal last season. But some still aren’t completely convinced.
Stepped up to the plate this year and will be a gem for The Gunners for a long time to come.
He’s made mistakes but has been an excellent signing – quick, aggressive, talented and willing – he has provided a refreshing alternative to the increasingly lame Per Mertesacker.
Injury slowed his rise to prominence. But you are always more confident with him on the park.
Debuchy has been great when fit, but Sagna was Mr.Consistent before leaving to sit on the bench at City.
Such a shame he can’t avoid injuries. Great to watch and unusually gifted for an Englishman. Should be nurtured and cherished.
His goalscoring alone gets him into the team. But you feel he can also do an excellent job alongside a beast in the ‘2’ in front of defence. Another long-term gem for Arsenal.
Wow. Just wow.
Always worth picking him for the moments of quality that can turn a game.
He’s really come on in the absence of Walcott. Still has much more potential and can be England’s best player in future years.
Danny Welbeck will feel aggrieved not to make the side having worked his chops off since joining Arsenal. But Giroud remains a better finisher and that’s exactly what this team, of great creativity, needs – someone to gobble up the chances.
