Arsenal host Middlesbrough in the Premier League looking to turn their fortunes around. Arsenal lost their previous game to Crystal Palace 3-0 that sparked angry reactions from the fans.
But when the team sheets came out, it had a major surprise, or rather say shock for the Gunners fans. It was :
" A back three "
So, Arsene Wenger opted for a back three to revive Arsenal's season. A back three of Gabriel, Koscielny and Holding. YES, HE DID!

Wenger proving he can deliver boring, inefficient and pointless football in any formation. Versatile.

Arsene Wenger playing 3-4-3 so Alexis can learn how to play it before joining Chels next season..
What a man.

Lmao, if Conte invented 3-4-3, Wenger invented football.

Mourinho, Pochettino, Southgate, Wenger all used 3-4-3 formation.
Antonio Conte has really revolutionized English football.

Wenger going three at the back is like Brent bowling in with an earring and a leather jacket.

When I decided that I'm done with football Wenger decided to change it up to get my attention. Like when your girl changes her hair

Twitter claiming Wenger stole Conte's formation, unaware he often used 3 at the back at Monaco and at Arsenal in 1997…

Arsenal eventually won over Middlesbrough and returned to the top six ahead of Everton by virtue of goals scored. Not sure what all the fuss was about.
