Mathieu Debuchy now surplus to requirements at Arsenal 1

Posted on January 05, 2016 by David Nugent

French international full-back Mathieu Debuchy has found first team football hard to come by this season. Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin is the undisputed first choice at right-back and Debuchy has been less than impressive in his limited appearances this season.

Arsene Wenger has previously stated that he would be willing to sell the 30-year-old in January and West Brom have been linked with a move for the former-Newcastle player.

Debuchy has reportedly become increasingly frustrated at his lack of action this season. His Arsenal career has been hampered by a long-term injury. When he returned from that injury Bellerin had established himself in the team.

A couple of years ago Arsenal full-back Carl Jenkinson was considered a rising star. He was contender to be the Gunners first choice right-back for years to come.

The problem for the full-back was that not only did he have Debuchy and Chambers for competition, Spanish youngster Hector Bellerin had emerged as well. He was sent back to the Boleyn Ground for a second loan spell in the summer, as he stood even less of a chance of first team action.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has recently stated that he believes that Chambers will eventually play as a defensive midfielder, despite being signed as a defender. The youngster has played most of his career at right-back, but Hector Bellerin and Mathieu Debuchy are currently in front of him in the pecking order for that spot in the team.

Arsenal had the first real threat of the game on four minutes. Theo Walcott was played in behind the Chelsea, but Asmir Begovic came out and narrowed the striker’s angle and the England international eventually ran the ball out of play.

The first attempt from the home side came on six minutes, as Petr Cech dealt easily with a Cesc Fabregas effort on goal. On 12 minutes Alexis Sanchez cut in from the wing and fired an effort just wide of goal.
