The Arsenal squad has been ranked from 'never sell' to 'for the love of god sell'


Premier League football has been back for four days and Arsenal fans have already had enough.

A 3-0 loss to Manchester City on Wednesday was followed up with a last minute 2-1 defeat to Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Gooners were probably hoping their side could put a run together before the end of the season in an attempt to qualify for Europe.

However, they now sit 10th and appear set for a mid-table finish.

Mikel Arteta was never going to have an easy job on his hands when he took over in December but even the Spaniard probably didn’t realise just how tough the task would be.

By now, he’s probably got a good idea of which players he wants to build his future team around and which players he wants to get rid of.

But just in case he hasn’t, one Arsenal fans has done the job for him.

They’ve placed every player into five categories: never sell, good for now, give them a little more time, if a good offer is made and for the love of god sell.

While not in the graphic, the supporter added that Bakayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah should be placed in the second tier.

Let’s take a look at the ranking:


Never sell: Nicolas Pepe, Gabriel Martinelli, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bernd Leno, Kieran Tierney

Good for now: Calum Chambers, Reiss Nelson, Matteo Guendouzi, Granit Xhaka, Hector Bellerin, Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah

Give them a little more time: Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock, Emile Smith-Rowe, Konstantinos Mavropanos, Emiliano Martinez

If a good offer is made: Sead Kolasinac, Matt Macey, Rob Holding, Lucas Torreira

For the love of god sell: Dani Ceballos, David Luiz, Sokratis, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette, Shkodran Mustafi



Following the loss to Brighton, Arteta couldn’t hide his frustrations and admitted he has a challenge to “rebuild” this Arsenal squad.

“I know we have a young squad but we threw the game away,” said Arteta.

“I am very frustrated. It is unacceptable the way we lost the game. We had to put it to bed earlier.”

“There’s a lot of things they have gone really well but we don’t compete. At this level you cannot give those sort of goals away.

“This is the challenge we all have at the football club, to rebuild to something that is worth the club we are representing.

“I just worry about tomorrow and lifting the players and winning the next football game.”
