Arsene Wenger says that one of the club’s strengths at this moment are the attacking options available to him.
Having seen Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil plunder three goals and two assists in the 5-2 win over Everton, the manager is set to rest all three knowing he’s got the likes of Puskas Award winner Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Alex Iwobi ready to come into the team for tomorrow night’s Carabao Cup tie against Norwich.
Speaking ahead of the game, Wenger said, “That’s the luxury I have at the moment and the difficulty I have as well. All these players do well, play well and they deserve to play.
Fortunately, we have important games every week, so I can give competition to everybody.
“We have so much offensive force on the bench as well. It’s really a strong point of the club at the moment.”
And he admitted the way he selects his team for this competition has changed somewhat.
“I always focus on winning trophies in the Premier League and FA Cup domestically, and always used the League Cup as an education for our young players,” he said.
“But with this team I have the squad to go further, so let’s see. Let’s focus on winning the match against Norwich and then we’ll see where we will go.”
