There are some suggestions that Arsene Wenger could be set to include the Wales international star Aaron Ramsey in the Arsenal starting line up for the Premier League home game against Swansea City on Monday night, despite the fact that the midfielder picked up a hefty knock in our last game against Hull a few days ago that has kept him out of training all week.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Wenger is yet to make his final decision but I just cannot see the point in taking any risks with such an important player, especially with bigger games away to Man United and against Aston Villa at Wembley on the horizon.
The Gunners do need to beat the Swans on Monday but it is not as though the loss of Ramsey will matter that much I would have thought. Ramsey has been playing on the right recently and Arsenal have good options there, with the pace of Theo Walcott or the more like for like replacements of Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere.
He could also bring Santi Cazorla out of central midfield and put him on the flanks, with Wilshere or Rosicky playing alongside Coquelin. Do you really think this would weaken the Arsenal team significantly, or enough to make it worth the risk of losing Ramsey for the rest of the season? Who would you start with?
