CM) Aaron Ramsey
With both Mathieu Flamini and Francis Coquelin playing a large part in the game against Singapore XI, we may be left without a defensive midfielder for our clash with Everton.
Coquelin may be fresh enough to start, otherwise Aaron Ramsey is likely to be asked to play a deeper role.
CM) Santi Cazorla
- Predicted Arsenal line up vs Slavia Prague – It’s “all or nothing”
- Arsenal icon Martin Keown says squad will be ‘baffled’ by star’s omission
- Arsenal may be forced to sell top ‘asset’ as pressure piles on Arteta
Cazorla thrived in a deeper role last season and may now find himself there permanently. Pre-season will be a good chance for us to see how Wenger utilises the Spaniard.
CAM) Mesut Özil
The German playmaker was used almost exclusively as a No.10 last season, and we started to see the best from him. He must be allowed to continue there in 2015/16, although with players like Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck missing from the pre-season tour, he may be needed out wide.
