Laurent Koscielny has been passed fit so Arsène Wenger sticks to his 11 that disposed of Liverpool last weekend. I wondered how Arsène would keep his four important midfielders in the same team and the answer is to continue with Aaron Ramsey wide right of the Arsenal attack.
There is of course the slight possibility that Mesut Özil will shift to the flank allowing Ramsey to slot alongside Cazorla but I think that is pretty unlikely. Mesut Özil has kept his central role for many weeks now. The good news for Ramsey is that the German loves to drift into wide positions and chances are that Ramsey will seek to fill those spaces.
Our strength in depth can be seen by glancing over at our bench. None of the returning players are back and also Gabriel misses out to what I assume is an injury of sorts.
Confirmed Line Up:
Subs: Szczesny, Gibbs, Chambers, Flamini, Rosicky, Walcott, Welbeck
