CM: Steven N’Zonzi
N’Zonzi is exactly the sort of player Arsenal need. The 6ft 4in Frenchman has all the physical attributes of a traditional defensive midfield boss. He can play a bit too. His passing, tacking and long-range shooting skills are all excellent.
CM: Aaron Ramsey
Ramsey has been plagued by injuries throughout his career, but he should be OK to face Stoke and, if he keeps fit, he could become an Arsenal great.
