Six forwards, 18 goals, one major attacking force.
We have shared the goals about our forward line so far this season, with Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck, Alexis and Alex Iwobi all contributing.
Arsene Wenger is delighted with his strength in depth up front and, speaking ahead of our Carabao Cup fourth-round clash against Norwich, says it gives his plenty to ponder.
“That’s the luxury I have at the moment and the difficulty I have as well,” the manager said. “All these players do well, play well and they deserve to play.
“Fortunately, we have important games every week, so I can give competition to everybody. We have so much offensive force on the bench as well. It’s really a strong point of the club at the moment.
“I always used [the League Cup] to give a chance to young boys,” he added. “We went to the final with a very young team and nearly won it.
“I always focus on winning trophies in the Premier League and FA Cup domestically, and always used the League Cup as an education for our young players.
“But with this team I have the squad to go further, so let’s see. Let’s focus on winning the match against Norwich and then we’ll see where we will go.”
