Mikel Arteta’s four team changes for Chelsea that must be made to restore title state

After the aftermath of the loss to Manchester City, Arsenal’s end-of-season objective is straightforward: triumph.

The next opponent in the remaining five games for the Gunners is Chelsea, who are in dreadful form.

Frank Lampard has yet to record a victory as Chelsea manager, and the impending hiring of Mauricio Pochettino appears to be hastening the end of the season.

The Blues’ campaign has been abysmal, as they are 14 points out of a Europa Conference League spot.

Arsenal could not have asked for a stronger opponent, but Mikel Arteta should still be replaced.

The team requires a new injection of quality and fitness, and there are options in the starting XI and on the bench to provide it.London examines four changes that must be implemented.

Thomas Partey has been a shell of his former self, with lackluster and reckless performances in his last few games, culminating against City after getting into a number of scuffles with opposition players.

The summer must be used to provide the Ghanaian with competitive alternatives, but for the time being, he could benefit from being removed from the spotlight.

Jorginho is the obvious choice because he legitimately looked good when he was substituted at the Etihad Stadium. Partey has been anything but calm as of late, so facing his former club may be the ideal time to introduce him into the fold.

Leandro Trossard.

Arsenal must add Leandro Trossard to the roster. The Gunners have not won a game since dropping the Belgian to the bench at Anfield, having won seven consecutive games prior to their draw with Liverpool.

However, the issue is that the front three players are so undroppable. Some may suggest removing Gabriel Jesus from the lineup, but I believe Trossard can excel with the starting three and supplant Granit Xhaka.

Concerns exist about Arsenal’s defense, but against a Chelsea team that concedes goals and has two fewer Premier League goals than Erling Haaland, there is reason to rely more on the attacking five, which includes Martin Odegaard.

Trossard creates a degree of chaos and has excellent chemistry with everyone he has played with, so it makes sense that he could be the best choice for Tuesday night.

Kieran Tierney.

Due to the absence of Xhaka, it would be prudent to permit a greater defensive presence at left-back. This is where Kieran Tierney comes in, and it may be tempting to replace Oleksandr Zinchenko with the Scot, given that the former Manchester City player has not been performing well.

Multiple teams have exploited this space, and his influence further up the field appears to be considerably less than in the first two-thirds of the season. Tierney has much to prove and may finally have the opportunity he’s been seeking.

Reiss Nelson.

The concluding selection on the list is the player who perhaps impressed me the most among the substitutes. No, I do not believe Reiss Nelson should start, but he should be given more time to come on and influence the game, as opposed to being limited to the final minutes.

When he was in possession of the ball, he gave off the impression that something might occur. Have we always underestimated this Hale End graduate?
