Arsenal starting XI for Norwich away with Flamini and Campbell

Arsene Wenger had two big calls to make today in his selection of the Arsenal team to face Norwich City away. One of them has been forced on him by the unfortunate injury to our French defensive midfield star Francis Coquelin and the other is the result of the good news that Aaron Ramsey is back again after his own injury lay-off.

Many Arsenal fans and football pundits expect the Welshman to come straight back in but I do not expect him to start, either as a replacement for Coquelin or on the right flank where he was playing earlier in the season. Instead I think that the boss will go with Mathieu Flamini to add the defensive steel in midfield that can allow Santi Cazorla the freedom to set the tempo with his passing ability and vision.

And I think that Wenger will give the increasingly impressive looking Joel Campbell another start on the right of our attack. There has been talk of Wenger resting Alexis Sanchez but unless the Chilean striker is unable to move I cannot see it happening. This would be my team.

Cech
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Flamini, Cazorla
Campbell, Ozil, Alexis
Giroud

Is this how you would line Arsenal up against the Canaries?
