Arsene Wenger’s worst XI: including Champions League final stopper and Russian winger

ST- Kaba Diawara

The journeyman striker made twelve Premier League appearances for Arsenal in 1999, but failed to find the back of the net at all, and was soon sent back to France to join Marseille, where he failed to score, and then Paris Saint-Germain, where he failed to score. Nevertheless, both Blackburn and West Ham brought him in on loan in 2001. Guess how those brief spells turned out…

ST- Park Chu-young

The South Korean is something of a hero back in his home country, but certainly not because of his spell in the Premier League. He made just one substitute appearance in the top flight, and obviously didn’t hit the back of the net. He did score in the League Cup against Bolton, which makes his Arsenal stay look prolific in comparison with Diawara’s.

ST- Francis Jeffers

Arsenal paid £8m for the Everton youngster when they signed him in 2001 (via the Daily Mail), and he repaid that faith with just four goals before leaving for Charlton Athletic for a fraction of the price in 2004. Having never really been prolific for the Toffees, it always seemed unlikely that he would even stand a chance of competing with Sylvain Wiltord, Thierry Henry, and Dennis Bergkamp. He does boast a fantastic strike-rate for his country however, with one goal coming during his only appearance for England.
