Arsene Wenger has named his ideal back-three players.

Wenger Settles on Ideal Back-Three for Season
It looks like Arsene Wenger has finally settled on his perfect back three. The Arsenal manager believes a back-three consisting of Shkodran Mustafi, Laurent Koscielny, and Nacho Monreal is the best way forward this season, with Koscielny and Montreal flanking Mustafi at the heart of the ideal Arsenal defence.

Wenger to Keep his Preferred Formation

The tactician from France looks likely to keep going with the 3 – 4 – 3 formation he has made use of throughout the season, and following the weekend’s nil all tie against Chelsea, it’s almost safe to say that his favourite format will be oft-repeated in upcoming games.

Wenger has made use of four diverse back-three combos in the Premier League so far for this season, with Sead Kolasinac and Rob Holding also getting some game time in, and Monreal has been the only player ever present in his role, starting ever match. 

A Well-Balanced Formation, Wenger Feels

In much the same way that you have a strategy that works when it comes to online casino gambling, Arsene Wenger seems to have settled on what looks to be his favoured defence after Arsenal beat Bournemouth with a final score of 3 – 0, and tied 0-0 with Chelsea, and has added that he believes that the Koscielny – Mustafi – Monreal combination is a well-balanced one.

Mustafi has also earned praise from his manager for the manner in which he has played so far. Wenger stated that Mustafi has been reading the game very well, and has been coming very strong in terms of the challenge. He added that Mustafi enjoys talking, too, and that that quality was an important part of the pitch.

Wenger restated that communication was a vital part of the play –in terms of organisation, he stressed the importance of talking early on, and that sometimes players need to shout in order to be heard over the roaring of the crowd. He added that the timing of any talk, and the volume of it, was a vital part of playing properly. 

Arsenal Fans Unhappy with Wenger

Arsenal fans do have a bone to pick with Wenger, however, after Mario Lemina’s poor sporting performance in the game against Crystal Palace left many club supporters wondering why Wenger had passed over the opportunity to sign Lemina up.

The player from Gabon was deemed superfluous to the needs of Max Allegri at Juventus, after the Italian team managed to secure the services of Paris Saint-Germain’s Blaise Matuidi. Lemina did not manage to nail down a starting berth during the two years he spent at Turn, but it does look likely that he will be forming an important part of the Southampton midfield that made sure that Crystal Palace suffered yet another miserable afternoon at Selhurst Park.

Lemina was delighted earlier on in the summer when he was linked with Arsenal, saying how flattering those links were, but nothing came of this when Wenger decided to pass on the chance to sign the player.
