The Gunners are set to face Wolverhampton on Saturday (kick-off 17:30 BST). Here are three possible options the lads can line up tomorrow. We ask you to pick one.
Arsenal are on a good run of form, having secured three back-to-back victories and getting a chance to fight for the Champions League spots.
Wolves are also in contention for a top-five finish this season and are currently six points ahead of Mikel Arteta's side. If Arsenal are serious about the CL qualifications, it's a must-win game for them.
Hence, Mikel Arteta needs to pick the best starting XI – and you can share your opinion on which option is the best from the three presented below.
Option 1: Why fix what is not broken?
- Arsenal triumphed over Norwich with this attacking 3-4-3 formation.
- Nico Pepe starts over Reiss Nelson while Lucas Torreira is preferred to Dani Ceballos in order to resist Wolves' attacks.
- Bukayo Saka is deployed in a central midfield role in order to keep Granit Xhaka fresh for the Leicester clash.
- Rob Holding returns as Sead has played two in a row and probably needs some rest, too. He is not a natural centre-back, too.
Martinez; Mustafi, David Luiz, Holding; Soares, Torreira, Saka, Tierney; Pepe, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Option 2: Classic diamond – with Mesut and Matteo
- Four defenders at the back means David Luiz is out. The veteran Brazilian is brilliant at distributing the ball but he needs two other centre-backs to protect him from mistakes.
- Guendouzi is used in a holding midfielder role, with Xhaka and Saka ahead of him.
- Mesut Ozil is deployed in an advanced position but with a clear instruction to track back the way he did before the restart under Arteta.
- Tierney and Cedric cut inside and get into central areas when attacking in order to saturate the midfield.
- Eddie is preferred to Laca because he is more defence-oriented. His tireless pressing will be exhausting for Wolves' backline and goalkeeper.
Martinez; Soares, Mustafi, Holding, Tierney; Guendouzi, Saka, Xhaka, Ozil; Nketiah, Aubameyang
A mix of both in an uncommon 3-6-1 shape
- This shape is similar to the unorthodox approach which led to the victory at Sheffield United.
- It is great for counters with Nico Pepe and Bukayo Saka attacking space on the flanks when Arsenal are in possession.
- There is no place for Mesut in this formation but Guendouzi is deployed as a holding midfielder.
- The formation retains the attacking potential of the 3-4-3 and the ball-controlling capacities of the diamond, but it makes defending easier for the Gunners by closing off more areas.
Martinez, Mustafi, David Luiz, Holding; Soares, Guendouzi, Tierney; Saka, Pepe, Ceballos; Aubameyang
