It was all looking so good for Arsenal less than six weeks ago, they had just beaten league leaders Leicester City 2-1 thanks to a dramatic injury-time header from the returning Danny Welbeck to go two points behind the Foxes.

Since then, however, things have been far from good for the Gunners. In fact, they things have been nothing short of disastrous.

In the nine matches that have followed the win over Leicester on 14 February, they have lost five, been knocked out of both the Champions League and the FA Cup, and fallen further down the Premier League table.

They are now a staggering 11 points behind Leicester, though they do have a game in hand.

The Gunners are next in action after the international break against the very team that dumped them out of the FA Cup in the sixth-round 10 days ago, Watford, at the Emirates Stadium on 2 April.

Do you agree that these players have something to prove?

Who should stay, who should go and who should be brought in as replacements?
