DM) Mikel Arteta
With Francis Coquelin unavailable due to injury (via IBT), a spot has opened up in midfield. Wenger has a few options, but it seems likely that Santi Cazorla will start alongside either Mikel Arteta or Mathieu Flamini.
The French midfielder certainly gave the manager something to think about with his performance against Tottenham, but he seems to have more faith in club captain Mikel Arteta.
CM) Santi Cazorla
- Arsenal are in surprise transfer links for Chelsea first team star
- How will Arsenal line up vs West Ham – Two major changes expected
- Mikel Arteta makes U-turn on long-term Arsenal star – will stay at club
Returning from his one match suspension, the Spaniard should come straight back into the side. He will badly miss Coquelin alongside him, but hopefully we remain strong in midfield.
CAM) Mesut Özil
Özil has made the No.10 spot his own, and should continue there after being rested against Tottenham.
