A Glimpse to the Future: Arsenal FC [PART 1]

Arsenal FC’s Carling Cup encounter against Bolton a few weeks ago provided a taster to what will come from the Gunners in the future, with Arsene Wenger going with his usual tactic of playing his youngsters in the League Cup.

Wenger opted for youthfulness in his squad, having just enough experience to back that up and to get past Bolton, so here are the names that could be Arsenal FC starting XI players in the very near future.

Ignasi Miquel was snapped up as young as 15 years of age, and it’s not hard to see why. His passing from the back is composed and his marking is excellent, although it needs some working on. He does seem to have all the attributes required to succeed in the English game.

Making his debut against Liverpool FC, albeit helping with the conceding of one of their goals – his clearance his Ramsey and went into the back of their net – but it doesn’t seem to have deterred him, making an assured display against Bolton last night, bullied a little by Bolton’s loan signing Gael Kakuta, but managed to pick up the pace later on.
PLAYER PROFILE| Nicholas Yennaris (Arsenal FC & England)

Age: 18

Favoured foot: Left

Position: RB

Value: N/a

Pacy, Composed, Good Tackling

 1.74m Arsenal 70kg Leytonstone Arsenal

Nico Yennaris made his Arsenal FC senior debut yesterday against Bolton and provided Arsenal FC just a glimpse of what he has to offer. The fact that he played in defence instead of his usual comfort zone in the midfield proves he is willing to do anything to get into that first team.

Yennaris was more of a right wingback, tracking back when he could and stifling out the threat of Tuncay from the left hand side of Bolton’s attack. He looked fairly comfortable throughout and didn’t really put a foot wrong. A splendid debut from the youngster.

Part II is coming out soon!
