Two strikers might solve Arsenal's problems
ESPN's James McNicholas believes pairing two forwards might be a good idea
"There are two major reasons for Wenger to pursue this strategy. The first is Arsenal's ongoing Europa League campaign. With Henrikh Mkhitaryan now injured, the Gunners boss must reconfigure the Arsenal attack. Alexandre Lacazette is available again and fielding Welbeck alongside him should reduce the workload on a player who can occasionally look cowed by the physical aspect of the game.
"If Arsenal are to go all the way in Europe, it will surely be on the strength of their attacking rather than their defending. With that in mind, it arguably makes sense to shift the emphasis of the team further up the field.
"Also, for all the speculation surrounding his future, Wenger is likely to have one eye on next season. He presumably regards the remaining Premier League games as an ideal opportunity to experiment ahead of 2018-19 and will be acutely conscious that he may have to find a way to squeeze Aubameyang and Lacazette into the same side on a regular basis. A club with Arsenal's resources simply can't afford to leave £50 million-worth of talent on the bench.
"It's easy to see how pairing Welbeck with one of Lacazette or Aubameyang is simply a dry run for the long-term aim of fielding the two most expensive players in Arsenal's history in tandem. For now, Welbeck's good form means he is likely to keep his place but it seems inevitable he will eventually be squeezed out in favour of Arsenal's "big two."
