Nacho Monreal is healthy again and signed to a season-long extension that will take him through next season at the Emirates. The next big question is whether he is the preferred starter for Unai Emery.
One of the big mysteries of the Unai Emery era so far is the identity of his preferred starting left back. The position has been injury-plagued all season for the new Arsenal manager and only now does he have both Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal healthy to force him to make a decision between the two. On the evidence we've seen under both Emery and Wenger, Kolasinac is best suited as a wing-back supported by a three-man center back group while Monreal is the superior two-way player if the formation has only two center backs. How Arsenal lines up going forward will likely dictate who is the preferred starter. Given all of the injuries recently, Arsenal's formations have been more down to necessity rather than strategy. With Monreal, Koscielny, Mustafi, and Bellerin all healthy again, we will find out more about the intended strategy. Jan 11 - 10:24 AM
