EPL: Arsenal's Potential Line-Up For 2022-2023

After settling on a 4-2-3-1 formation, Arteta must now figure out how to balance his team while keeping a diversity of attacking skill happy. 

There isn't much of a fuss at the back, where Ramsdale and Takehiro Tomiyasu have replaced Bernd Leno and the returning Hector Bellerin, respectively.

Gabriel will partner with White in the middle of the defense, while Zinchenko may replace Tierney as the go-to left-back.

Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus.

At the center of the midfield's foundation last year, Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka solidified their friendship.

The following is the fascinating section. Bukayo Saka has seized the right-wing position, while Jesus will lead the line. 

Gabriel Martinelli and vice-captain Martin Odegaard could round out the team, but Vieira and Eddie Nketiah will compete for playing time.

Arsenal will not only be watching Gabriel Jesus; Saka is also important to the Gunners and has developed from an intriguing young prospect. He bounced back from losing the Euro 2020 final on penalties to enjoy his most productive Premier League campaign to date, tallying 11 goals, including two from the penalty spot, and providing seven assists. 

Saka's already outstanding 2020–21 campaign, in which he notched five league goals and provided three assists, was greatly improved by this. It would be impossible to anticipate that Saka, a 20-year-old winger who can also play at fullback or in central midfield, won't raise his assist totals given the chance to play with new signing Jesus. 

Arteta will still face pressure despite the Gunners' failing to place in the top four while averting a third consecutive eighth-place finish. 

Arsenal's final important triumph in 2020 came in the FA Cup. So if Arteta goes three seasons without a championship, by May, his job might be in jeopardy. Last season, the Spanish coach led his team to impressive victories over top-four opponents West Ham, Chelsea, and Tottenham.

Arteta will now be under more pressure to deliver Champions League football because Arsenal lost five of their previous 10 games, which cost them. 

In the Europa League, the former midfielder gets the chance to showcase his leadership abilities against some of Europe's top clubs and possibly take home more trophy.
