DM) Mathieu Flamini
There’s been some speculation that Calum Chambers could be being prepped for a role in midfield, but it’s unclear whether he’s ready at this point. We expect Flamini to keep his spot, but there are certainly no guarantees. Olympiacos are likely to be trying to hit us on the counter, so the defensive midfield position could prove hugely important.
CM) Aaron Ramsey
Ramsey hasn’t looked at his best recently, but he still grabbed a goal and an assist against Sunderland on the weekend. His desire to play in midfield is well documented, so he’ll be looking to prove a point in the coming weeks.

CAM) Mesut Özil
The German playmaker has been outstanding this season, and if there’s one player who can get us out of the jam we’re in it’s him. We’ll need him to pile on the chances for his teammates on Wednesday, as we may end up needing quite a few goals to go through if we concede even once.
