I am not saying that Aaron Ramsey is a better player than Jack Wilshere, because the England international has done really well for Arsenal this season and made a very good start towards proving all his doubters and critics from last season wrong.
And meanwhile, the Welshman has not quite found the level of performance that earned him the Arsenal fans’ vote as Player of the Year last time. But I think that Ramsey is coming good and also needs the time on the pitch to really sharpen up. Apart from being too interested in getting on the score sheet on Tuesday, I think Rambo had a good all round game and he will have been made well aware that he needs to not ignore his defensive duties.
But there is another big reason why I think that Jack should not start and that is the fact he is on four yellow cards in the Premier League and our next game is at home to Manchester United. It would be a real blow if the 22-year old, with his ability to dance through opposing players and break a determined defensive line, was not available to help us finally get one over on the struggling United side.
Even if Arsene Wenger decides to start Ramsey against United, it could be that we need Jack to come and work a bit of magic. So do you agree that the boss should protect him on Sunday?
