Arsene Wenger has been talking about three players who are on the verge of a “massive season” for Arsenal.

- Team news: Gabriel, Jack, Per, Welbeck
Jack Wilshere, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott were all hampered by injuries in 2015/16 but Wenger is tipping them to shine over the next nine months.
“Yes, for them it’s a massive season because they have not been regularly involved in the English national team and they all belong to the English national team,” he said.
“There’s a new possibility for them because there’s a new coach in the English national team. But especially, I think what is most important is for them to do well for their club. They have been frustrated last season on that front.
“All three have a point to prove, of course. For different reasons. Most of the time it is down to the fact that they were injured and today at the top level you cannot be in and out, you have to be consistently physically at the top.
“If you are injured and come back the difference between the players and the teams is so small that you have to be at the top physically.”
More polls coming soon!
