The worrying implication of West Ham defeat
Everyone was playing badly, both goals were results of abysmal defending and goalkeeping.
But let's have a look at why the midfield and attack were so toothless and pathetic.
The reason is simple - Wenger tinkered with the formation. The Cazorla-Coq partnership in midfield was disturbed. Ramsey was playing centrally and Cazorla "on the left". Here are heatmaps (Ox included for demonstration only, coz he actually played like a winger)
The most likely reason why Ramsey was playing centrally is because he's probably very frustrated, so Wenger is afraid he'll push for a transfer and now trying to shoehorn him into the team.
Let's be real - Cazorla out wide is a very bad idea. He played there a whole season when Ozil came, and his game suffered a lot. Also Cazorla is a better central midfielder than Ramsey at the moment.
So, my fear is - one of Cazorla, Ramsey or Ozil will have to leave.
Of course, if it was up to me, I'd boot out Ozil right now. But Ozil has some kind of a intimate relationship with Wenger, so there's no way Wenger will sell him. And he won't sell Ramsey. So, what I fear is that he'll sell (or drop) Cazorla.
