Arsene Wenger: Warned some players may have to get used to bench role

Wenger has an embarassment of riches at his disposal in midfield with the likes of Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta Mathieu Flamini, Tomas Rosicky, and Serge Gnabry all competing for a spot in the starting XI for the clash with West Brom on Sunday.

The competition will become even greater when Santi Carzola, Theo Walcott, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all return from injury and Wenger has warned some of his top stars they may have to get used to spells on the bench.

"Honestly I know I cannot keep everyone happy. But to make unpopular decisions is part of my job," noted Wenger.

"No matter what happens you have 25 players and only the 11 players who start the game are happy. That's part of our job as well to cope with it.

"That's part big clubs today, having big players on the bench."

"On one side people want you to have good players, on the other side that means you cannot give any guarantee to anybody."
