This is where Solomon comes in. While Solomon can play on either wing, Bukayo Saka has impressed on the right of Arsenal’s attack in recent weeks.
So Solomon could be the solution on the left wing – a position which has failed to bring the best out of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of late.
Aubameyang would be left to fight it out with Alexandre Lacazette for the central striker’s role – a battle which the latter would win on current form.
The above line-up would mean no place for Gabriel Martinelli, who has missed a lot of action through injury recently – but that will be a welcome conundrum for Arteta to grapple with once the Brazilian winger is fit again.
Potential Arsenal line-up including Manor Solomon: Leno; Bellerin, Gabriel, Mari, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Smith Rowe, Solomon; Lacazette.
