Arsenal get back to Premier League action when we welcome Norwich City to the Emirates this weekend.
We currently sit top of the league, ahead of Liverpool on goal-difference, but could be down to second by the time we kick off with the Merseysiders playing Newcastle in the lunchtime kick off.
Arsene Wenger revealed the latest team news on Thursday and on the whole things are looking positive. Bacary Sagna is rated at 80% fit so could return but I’d like to see Carl Jenkinson retain his place with the Frenchman being given an extra few days rest before the Borussia Dortmund game next week.
Midfield has become a hotly contested area with Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini all vying for starting spots. Ramsey is surely a dead cert to start while Flamini has almost made himself indispensable after some fine displays.
Wenger has elected to play Ramsey on the right in recent weeks to accommodate Arteta but with Rosicky available again I’d like to see the Czech international start out wide with Flamini and Ramsey in the middle.
Santi Cazorla is also back in contention after recovering from a foot injury so we could see him start on the left wing. Wilshere could potentially start in the ‘hole’ behind Giroud with Mesut Ozil a doubt after picking up a knock in midweek. He faces a fitness test but I’d give him a rest with Dortmund coming up.
Here’s is the team I’d go with:
