It is safe to say that Arsenal has the widest and largest array of offensive talents in midfield in the Premier league. Some might even say Arsenal may have the best amongst the world, with only Bayern Munich close to us. Ozil, Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla, Rosicky, Arteta and rumours of Khedira or Bender joining, it must be a huge headache for Arsene to decide who should start. Also, it is important to note that all these players are extremely talented and would easily grace the starting lineup of any premier league team. Thus, it is vital to ensure that all these players get enough playing time. Otherwise, they would not be satisfied and may start to look for a move away from Arsenal.
Nevertheless, as much as rotation is important, I still feel there is a need for us to establish a selected three. One system that would be our go to midfield in all the big games.
Bender or Khedira
This would be first choice midfield for Arsenal with Cazorla moving to join the front three, Wilshere as the backup for Ozil and Ramsey. Arteta will remain on the bench to support Bender or Khedira. Rosicky remains on the bench as a super sub to give us the extra boost when we are trying to chase games.
Also, the players predominantly on the bench can at times start for midweek matches in the Champions League or the respective cup matches. This can ensure we have fresh legs for every match and be as competitive as we can be in all competitions.
How do you think our midfield set up should be this season?
