With Olivier Giroud suspended for Arsenal's next three matches Yaya Sanogo could get a start between Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.
Arsene Wenger will have multiple options to replace Giroud. Danny Welbeck could revert to a more central role where, truth told, he was more effective than he has been in Theo Walcott's wide right role. Wenger could also choose Yaya Sanogo who has recently returned from a hamstring injury suffered against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. Welbeck seems certain to start either way but where he plays will be very influential on his potential value. Dec 27 - 1:59 PM

Yaya Sanogo had a golden opportunity to draw Arsenal even in stoppage time but he put his shot way over the bar and Arsenal lost 1-0 away at Stoke.

Arsenal's attack was listless all day but Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came on late to provide some opportunities. The best one he created came in stoppage time when he got to the touch line and centered back for a wide open Yaya Sanogo. The Arsenal forward was under no pressure but he never got over the ball and he sent it well over the cross bar. Opportunity lost. City and Chelsea have also dropped points at Stoke this season but these were points that Arsenal couldn't afford to drop with matches against Everton, Spurs, Chelsea, and Manchester City coming up in the league along with critical FA Cup and Champions League matches.

Yaya Sanogo made his first start for Arsenal's first team in the FA Cup match against Liverpool and impressed even in the absence of a goal.

The 21 year-old forward was given his first start in an important match and the moment didn't look too big for him. While he didn't score, he was dangerous with his combination of speed, strength and long limbs. His best sequence was when he won the ball in the box, controlled it, and volleyed it towards goal only to see it blocked. The rebound found it's way to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Arsenal's first goal. Given his performance it seems likely that Wenger will give him a chance to move ahead of Nicklas Bendtner as Olivier Giroud's main deputy. So long as this is his role, he has minimal fantasy value but an extended run of matches could see him produce some value at a low price.
