The factory had closed four of its 12 assembly lines because of a lack of raw materials, most of which are imported from China.“We were sent home for five days because there was nothing to do. But we got called today to start working again as the factory reopened the assembly line,” Suparman told The Jakarta Post.“I heard that there was a disruption of raw material supplies from China. That’s why we did not have any work to do, with the consequence that we were sent home for five days.”Read also: COVID-19 pandemic looms over Indonesia’s rec… LOG INDon’t have an account?

Arsenal’s possible starting XI, with £42m of new signings and fit again midfield stalwart

first_imgArsenal could add to their signing of Mohamed Elneny before the January transfer window slams shut.Reports claim Arsene Wenger has his eye on two new forwards and a young defender, as the French manager looks to strengthen his side’s title challenge.So, could the Gunners challenge for the Premier League trophy with a line up featuring some notable changes?Take a look at Arsenal’s possibly starting XI after the transfer window closes by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 10. Left wing: Alexis Sanchez – Sanchez made his return in Arsenal’s defeat to Chelsea, and while the result was one to be forgotten, his performance certainly lifted the mood of Gunners faithful. The Chilean will be lacking match sharpness, but it isn’t expected to take too long for him to return to full fitness. Walcott, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Campbell will be both frustrated and pleased to see the former Barcelona winger back in action. 8. Right wing: Theo Walcott, Andriy Yarmolenko or Joel Campbell – Wenger isn’t short of options out wide, which makes his job all the more difficult. And if Yarmolenko makes a surprise move to the Emirates in the next few days, with reports claiming a £23m fee has been agreed, there will be many fighting for a place on the flank. Alexis Sanchez, when fully fit, is a certain starter on the left, but what about the right? Yarmolenko has been in fine form for Dynamo Kiev, while Walcott and Campbell are also challenging for a spot. The former’s arrival could be devastating news for Oxlade-Chamberlain. 2. Right back: Hector Bellerin – Mathieu Debuchy has been forced to address his future this month as a consequence of Bellerin’s commanding form. The 20-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough 2014/15 campaign, and his performances are only improving in north London. 11 3. Centre back: Gabriel Paulista – Per Mertesacker has often been preferred ahead of Gabriel, who arrived in January 2015, but the former’s red card against Chelsea may come as a blessing in disguise for Arsenal. The Germany international’s lack of pace has often left his side exposed at the back, and while his current ban lasts for just one match, he could face a battle to get back into the starting line up. 1. Goalkeeper: Petr Cech – to see the XI that Wenger could start after the January transfer window click the arrow above – The former Chelsea goalkeeper has proved to be one of the signings of the summer. Cech’s influence on the team has been clear, with his confidence breathing new life into a Gunners side that has so often struggled to maintain a title challenge. Top spot is still within reach, despite defeat to the Blues in their last league outing, and Cech’s experience will be crucial over the next few months. 11 4. Centre back: Laurent Koscielny – Of Arsenal’s four senior centre backs, Koscielny is arguably the most superior. While the Frenchman does deliver the odd poor performance, he is one of the first names on the Gunners team sheet. It’s deciding his partner that is most problematic, with Gabriel Paulista and Per Mertesacker competing for the remaining spot. 11 7. Centre midfield: Aaron Ramsey – Ramsey started the campaign off on the right flank, pushed away from his favoured central role to accommodate Coquelin and Santi Cazorla. Injury to the pair, though, has allowed the Welshman to step inside and his performances have impressed Wenger. The major concern with the 25-year-old in this position is his defensive naivety, but as Coquelin looks set to return to action before Cazorla, a new midfield partnership could thrive. 6. Centre midfield: Francis Coquelin – Coquelin has been on the sidelines since November, recovering from knee ligament damage, but he is nearing his return. The Frenchman is back in training, and is set to be thrown into action in the Gunners’ FA Cup clash with Burnley this coming Saturday. He faces competition from new signing Mohamed Elneny, but so long as his confidence hasn’t been affected, Coquelin will be Wenger’s first choice in a holding midfield role. 11 11 11 11 11 5. Left back: Nacho Monreal or Ben Chilwell – Monreal has been excellent for Arsenal – with his reputation in the Premier League having risen tremendously over the last season and a half. Reports, however, claim that Leicester City left back Chiwell could be heading to the Emirates to inject further youth into Wenger’s back line. If the Gunners can seal a deal before the close of the January window, it’s unlikely the 19-year-old will be thrust straight into action, but as Bellerin has shown, experience isn’t everything. 11. Striker: Olivier Giroud or Nolito – After an uncertain start to the campaign, Giroud has again become Wenger’s first choice striker, with the Frenchman grasping the opportunity to impress during Walcott’s absence through injury. He could, however, have some new competition to contend with in the shape of Celta Vigo’s Nolito. The Spaniard, who has eight goals and five assists this season, could be the subject of a late bid from Arsenal, strengthening an already impressive attack at the Emirates. 11 9. Attacking midfield: Mesut Ozil – Often deployed out wide in his first two seasons at the Emirates, the Germany international has flourished in his favoured no.10 role, registering 16 assists in the Premier League already. This tally is expected to rise, with Thierry Henry’s record of 20 in a single campaign well within his reach. Upon his return to full fitness, Jack Wilshere will be eyeing Ozil’s position, but it’s almost impossible to see any other player stepping in if his form continues. 11 11last_img read more
