3 Fringe Arsenal Players To Watch Out For vs. Reading On Tuesday Night

He’s been on loan and out injured, but Jenkinson is now back at Arsenal. The right back has questionable quality, but if he can prove himself in games like these then Arsenal will have a proper back up for Hector Bellerin. Over the course of the full season, the club cannot afford to have just one good right back. We’ve had him as a back up right back before but the fans have in general, not been satisfied. All eyes will be on whether Jenkinson lasts the 90 minutes and his physical performance during his time on the pitch. We know he isn’t the best player technically, but his strengths like in his workrate, pace and battling attributes – it will be interesting to see if he has lost any of those during his long spell on the sidelines.
