- Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger plans to switch to 3-4-3 formation permanently for the club
- The French manager used this style of play in their 2-1 win against Middlesbrough on 17 April, 2017
- The 67-year-old used this formation for the first time in over two decades at the Riverside stadium
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is considering adopting the 3-4-3 formation like rivals Chelsea and Tottenham.
The French manager used this formation for the first time in over two decades in their narrow 2-1 win against Middlebrough on 17 April, 2017 and he is considering switching to that formation permanently for Arsenal.
The 3-4-3 formation has been abandoned by most Premier League clubs but Van Gaal tried to implement this style of play in his first season at Manchester United but failed woefully.
However, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte adopted this formation after a League defeat to Arsenal in September 2016 and other clubs like Tottenham and Manchester United have adopted this style after the Italian manager recorded success with the formation.
Wenger is the latest manager to adopt this style of play and he is considering switching to 3 at the back permanently for the Gunners.
When asked about the possibility of implementing this style of play , the Frenchman said: “It is an option but you will understand if I don’t tell you now!
“The definition of a good football player is that he is adaptable to situations.
“It is 11 vs 11 and you have billions of possible situations,''
Arsenal will face Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals on 23 April 2017 and fans will be expecting a win in that encounter to guarantee them a place in the FA Cup final.
