It may irk some to see Lukas Podolski ranked higher than others on this list. However, Podolski has performed better than many think during his short time at Arsenal.
That's not to say, the Germany international has been outstanding. In fact, he has been far from it. Yet the perception of Podolski's Arsenal performances is often an unfair one.
The problem begins with the fact that his reputation often exceeds his overall talent. Due to his international scoring record, many have mistakenly placed Podolski into the bracket of elite players.
The truth is, he probably belongs in a lower bracket. For instance, Podolski is not a player who will wow fans with dynamism or skill.
He is, however, an intelligent forward who has not always benefited from where he is played. This author doesn't have many major complaints against Wenger.
However, one of the few would certainly be that he too often forces players into positions he thinks they ought to fit. In his heyday, this worked well with the likes of Freddie Ljungberg, Lauren and of course, Henry.
However, in the near eight years since Arsenal last claimed silverware, the game and its players have changed. Players are no longer as willing to adapt to positional switches.
Many seem to crave the adulation that comes with being their team's main man. In the modern game, that means playing in a central area.
Podolski has rarely had that opportunity, yet has still produced some credible numbers. His eight goals are a decent return, and he also boasts six assists.
That is second on the team in both categories. That's not bad for a natural forward expected to act more as a winger in what is essentially a 4-5-1 formation.
Podolski also ranks alongside Theo Walcott as Arsenal's best finisher.
