    Jovetic is a good replacement to the arsenal squad as it would be a perfect combination to our 4-4-2 formation if RVP leave,but please dont forget the man,lewandowski for addition then it no problem to arsenal attacting line as it can only be the midfield and deffence and lloris as stopper to add.
