Defensively Arsenal have been exposed this season – so it’s time to go back to what they know.
With Petr Cech in goal, I would go for a back four of Sead Kolasinac at left-back, Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi in the middle and Hector Bellerin at right-back.
In front of them I would go with the Aaron Ramsey and Granit Xhaka pairing, with Mesut Ozil ahead of them in the playmaker role.
The three at the back experiment worked well, it brought about a strong end to last season and an FA Cup – but we all know it was only a temporary solution.
Whether Sanchez should start is one of the two big decisions facing the Arsenal boss on Saturday, the other revolves around what formation he plays.
He says he’s focused, he’s says he’s ready – so Alexis Sanchez must start against Bournemouth on Saturday.
Yes he was awful at Anfield and he wasn’t much better for Chile over the international break, but he still has to be used by Arsene Wenger providing he is fit.
Sanchez would then be on the left, with Theo Walcott (it would be Reiss Nelson if he hadn’t played last night for the Under-23s) on the right and Alexandre Lacazette as the central striker.
Arsenal: Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez, Walcott, Lacazette.
