DM) Francis Coquelin
He’s not quite at his best yet since his return from injury, but he’s still unquestionably a massive step up from Mathieu Flamini.
CM) Mohamed Elneny
Aaron Ramsey has been struggling for form recently, and lacked concentration against United this past weekend. Elneny may get a start, with the Welsh midfielder rested for Tottenham.
CAM) Mesut Özil

Ideally we’d be resting Özil, but that’s really not an option as this is a must win game. Hopefully we’ll get an early lead and he can be substituted early, so he’ll be fully fit for the North London Derby.
