I have ne doubt that Arsene Wenger will bring the brilliant German international star Mesut Ozil back into the Arsenal starting line-up for the must win Premier League game against Watford this weekend, and I a fairly sure that our summer signing from Borussia Monchengladbach will be handed the box-to-box role in central midfield, but who will play alongside Granit Xhaka in the centre?
It could be Mohgamed Elneny but I dfo not think it will, especially as he has not been in the best form so far this season. For me there are just two options but there is a big decision for the boss to make as FRancis Coquelin and Santi Cazorla are very different types of players and whichever one Wenger chooses would give the Gunners a different approach.
We could go with the extra steel of Coquelin, which would help to ensure that we stay compact and solid and then we would hope that our more attacking players could get the job done against the Watford defence. With the speed and counter attacking skills of Gunners like Walcott and Alexis Sanchez this is not a bad tactic, especially away from home.
Starting with Cazorla would give Arsenal, we hope, much more control of the ball and make us more creative, but then we would be left a little more exposed at the back and the likes of Troy Deeny and Odion Ighalo have proved that they can hurt teams in this way.
It seems like a pretty starightforward choice for the manager to make and one that is based on how much risk he is willing to take to ensure Arsenal record our first EPL win of the season. What would you do?
