Arsenal could soon have the perfect chance to play Krystian Bielik

If Arsenal have little to play for in their final league game of the season, it could be the perfect chance to give Krystian Bielik his first-team debut.

Arsenal still have plenty to play for this season, with third-place in the Premier League not yet secured and a tough match away to fourth-placed Manchester United next up.

But if the Gunners keep United at bay by winning enough points in that match and their game-in-hand against Sunderland, could manager Arsene Wenger give one of their talented youngsters a first-team chance on the final day?

Krystian Bielik signed for Arsenal from Legia Warsaw back in January for £2million despite having only featured six times for the Polish club’s senior side.

That is how highly-rated the defensive midfielder is, and the fact that he can also play as a centre-back if required is surely yet another reason why Arsenal splashed the cash.

While Francis Coquelin put in a below par performance against Swansea, it would be a surprise if the Frenchman did not start at Old Trafford on Sunday. But when it comes to the final league match of the season, at home to West Bromwich Albion, Bielik may get a chance.

When you consider Arsenal will have one eye on the FA cup final against Aston Villa, they may well rest some players for the clash with the Baggies.

Bielik has already been promoted from Arsenal’s under-18 side to their under-21s, so what chance another step up?

If there is little to play for and a cup final on the horizon, it could be a smart move to give Bielik an experience playing at the Emirates Stadium despite his tender age.
