Wenger's Best Arsenal XI

Arsene Wenger's Best Arsenal XI

By Keegan Kruger - Apr 20, 2018 09:00 PM @KeeganKruger

After more than 21 years of service, Arsene Wenger has announced that his reign at Arsenal will come to an end this season, and while the news is still a shock to many, an English publication has picked a starting XI regarded as the Frenchman's best.

Tired of reading? Click through the gallery above to see who made Wenger’s Best Arsenal XI, according to The Independent.

The 68-year-old has worked with some phenomenal players during his time at the Gunners, including Robert van Persie, Dennis Bergkamp and Tony Adams, but who exactly made it into The Independent's line-up?

The English publication picked Jens Lehmann in goals for the manager's best XI because he played a vital role in the 2003/04 season in which the team was nicknamed "the Invincibles".

In the backline, Sol Campbell and current club captain Laurent Koscielny were picked at centre back, while former Cameroon international Lauren and LA Galaxy captain Ashley Cole were nominated as the right and left backs, respectively.

Arsenal have always been blessed with midfielders, and the publication believes that the best central midfield pairing under Wenger would consist of Chelsea's Cesc Fabregas and Gunners legend Patrick Vieira, while former Swedish star Freddie Ljungberg and Frenchman Robert Pires would operate down the flanks.

Confirmed: Wenger To Leave Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez, now a Manchester United player, was slotted in the No. 10 role, while Belgium assistant and Arsenal's record goalscorer Thierry Henry leads the line.

What a philosopher, what a football giant. What a coincidence, with Steve leaving. He will be such a good catch.
