How would you set up our midfield

Posted by VA10 about 1 year ago · 36 replies

Now that Xhaka is here and Ramsey has been out of this world at the Euros, how would set up our midfield for this season?

I'd go with this if we don't sign a right winger Xhaka Santi Ramsey-Ozil-Alexis

But there's just too many midfielders ffs! Wilshere, Coq, El Neny....

Xhaka - Ramsey in the middle as Rambo might be better centrally next to a player who isn't completely brain dead.

Wilsh on the right, Mesut in the middle, Alexis on the left

I'd switch from the current 2-1 to a 1-2, with Xhaka in the holding position. Coquelin as the backup DM. I'd then play Ramsey and Özil in a CAM partnership, with Wilshere as backup. So basically a 4-1-4-1/4-5-1 instead of the 4-2-3-1 that clearly isn't working.

That, or simply a 4-4-2 with playmaker wingers, i.e: Ramsey on the right, Özil on the left and then Coquelin + Xhaka in the middle to form an iron wall. You can then utilise Giroud fully in a striking partnership alongside Sanchez or someone like Lacazette.

I think 352. Especially if they sign Richard Rodriguez.

442

Giroud-Ozil Sanchez-Xhaka/Coquelin-Ramsey-Walcott

Just to increase the goals in the Premiership.

So you are now proposing moving Ozil to the wing?

No, think he was doing a diamond midfield (Xhaka at base, Ramsey Cazorla in middle 2, Ozil at top) with Alexis as 2nd striker offset of Giroud. But could be wrong since the design did not work.

You got it right. Its a diamond with Ozil having the freedom to drop or stay up for a 4-3-3

I dont see Wenger will make any more signings for First team.. so the possible lineup would be:

Giroud Sanchez Ozil Ox Xhaka Ramsey Monreal Kos Gab Bellerin Cech
