DM) Francis Coquelin
The missing piece in the puzzle, Coquelin has been excellent since returning from his loan spell. He is our only real option in the defensive midfield role, and he will more than likely play a major role against Swansea.
CM) Santi Cazorla
One of the standout performers this season, the Spaniard is thriving in his new deeper role. He has been pulling the strings in midfield, and along with Coquelin he is one of the more irreplaceable figures in the team.

CAM) Mesut Özil
Our record signing is finally starting to prove his worth this season, and he has been phenomenal since returning from injury. He has been unbelievable in the second half of the campaign, and looks far more comfortable in his preferred No.10 role.
