Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal’s season took a turn for the worse over the last week, as they lost to both Everton and Manchester City in the Premier League.
Now, across a hectic festive period they know every point is vital as they look to catch table-toppers Chelsea.
Up next, on Boxing Day, is West Bromwich Albion, who are quietly going about their business and proving they could potentially challenge for a European place under Tony Pulis.
The Gunners will need to be clinical against the Baggies miserly defence but, despite Danny Welbeck’s return to training, the England international is unavailable for the match.
Arsene Wenger will also be without short-term absentees Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Shkodran Mustafi, while Aaron Ramsey is a doubt.
They will too be missing long-term injury victims Mathieu Debuchy, Santi Cazorla, Chuba Akpom and Per Mertesacker.
So who will start for Wenger against the Baggies on Boxing Day?
