You might think that Arsenal should be thinking about all out attack for the home match against| Hull City in the Premier League tomorrow. Even though the relegation threatened club have been on the up recently and have won games against both Liverpool and Man United in the last few weeks, their success has been built on a solid defensive display.
So when you wonder which players Arsene Wenger should start with in central midfield against the Tigers, a lot of Arsenal fans might say the most attacking ones we have available, which would probably be Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alex Iwobi, but I do not think the boss will be that gung ho, especially after being caught out so badly against Watford and then Chelsea.
I think Arsenal have to be wary of our opponents tomorrow and be ready to match their effort. The last thing we need is to let them take the lead and have something to defend, so a little patience and balance in the midfield would be the thing for me.
At the same time I think we do need to have some craft and guile in there to break down the disciplined defence, so with that in mind I think Wenger should rest Coquelin and bring in Mohamed Elneny, with the Ox operating as our box-to=box player.
The Egyptian may not have the same battling and tackling qualities as the Frenchman but he does have a great engine and passing ability, while the Oz offers pace and power and a direct style that offers Arsenal something different.
How would you line up the Arsenal midfield tomorrow?
