So the international break is done and dusted which means the Premier League kicks off again ! I say again because the transfer window shut a day after the last set of matches which means the teams look very different from their last match. Arsenal in particular have bought and bought well in Mustafi and Perez and the Emirates faithful will be wanting to catch a glimpse of them for the first time in an Arsenal shirt ! That and much more in Arsenal vs Southampton !
5) New Signings !
Lack of solidarity at the back and lack of creative talent up front has led to a mini-crisis at the beginning of this season for the Gunners. Arsene Wenger was publicly criticised by many a critic for his transfer policy. An injury to the ex-United striker Danny Welback has limited the options up front for the Gunners. Sanchez and Giroud have been unable to recreate the magic they have created over the past two seasons in London.
Shkodran Mustafi has been tipped as the big summer signing for the North London club. World Cup winner Mustafi has been one of the consistent players for his former club Valencia. He is most likely to lead the defensive line for the Gunners Alongside French defender Laurent Koscielny. (Arsenal vs Southampton)
The other new Arsenal recruit Lucas Perez has been a gem of signing for the Gunners. The former Deportivo man has scored 19 goals for the Spanish side last season. Most notably scoring in a 2-2 draw against the Spanish champions Barcelona. The former Deportivo hitman is the answer to all the attacking woes for the Gunners. (Arsenal vs Southampton)
