The question of who should start alongside Francis Coquelin in the Arsenal central midfield when our Premier League campaign kicks off again with the visit of Watford on Saturday will be a very easy one to answer if the rumours about Aaron Ramsey having suffered a setback to his return from injury are correct.
The manager of the Welsh national team Chris Coleman certainly set tongues wagging recently with his talk of Ramsey maybe only getting a couple of games in for Arsenal before the summer and the Euro 2016 tournament while the last we heard from Arsene Wenger was that he would be back after this international break.
Assuming that the Frenchman is not holding something back from us about the Welshman’s fitness, he is going to have a very tough call to make on the team selection for Saturday, because in the absence of Ramsey our new signing from Basel has taken his chance to impress.
And just to highlight what an impact Mohamed Elneny has made, an Arsenal.com report shows that the Arsenal fans have voted the Egyptian as our Player of the Month for March, narrowly edging out the impressive Danny Welbeck with Mesut Ozil back in fourth.
So do Arsenal stick with Elneny? I am not so sure, especially as the onus is on Arsenal to attack the hornets at the Emirates this weekend. The stats on Squawka.com suggest that while Elneny has performed well so far, Ramsey has the edge when it comes to going forwards, creating chances and trying to score.
Elneny has got that one goal against Barcelona but in the Premier League he has not really showed that side of his game and he actually had a bit of a shocker in front of goal during the FA cup defeat by Watford. So would you bring Ramsey back in, for this game at least, or has our new man taken his place in the first choice Arsenal team?
