These are the currently available and soon to be available players that Arteta can choose from.
For each position, he has at least two options except maybe for the 10 role (although Willock could play there). He also has some versatile players available like Saka, Martinelli, Auba, Xhaka that can play in multiple positions.
In defense, he has now 5 fit options to choose from for CB and at RB and LB, he can also pick from 5 players.
Arteta has a squad of 23 players available, which is thought to be a good number for a first team squad. He has options in all positions and can probably shape his team easily in a 4231, 4321, 442, 433, 343 and 352 given the available players.
Now the question is – do you find the team balanced in terms of quality and/or quantity? Explain your position 🙂
