After dropping points against Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal are back to winning ways with two consecutive wins over West Ham and Newcastle United. This means that they will start the new year as league leaders and they have a relatively easier fixture against Cardiff City on new year day to extend their lead at the top.
So what would be Arsenal’s strongest line up Wenger could select against the blue birds?
Goalkeeping and Defence:
There is no confusion in this one. Szczesny who is having a stellar season as Arsenal no 1 is expected to start in the goal for the gunners.
Another big boost for the gunners is their star defender Laurent Koscielny is already back and he will partner with the giant German Per Mertesacker at the back. Sagna will start from the right while Gibbs is expected to make his trademark overlapping runs from the left.
