Arsenal supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are still catching their breath following yesterday’s pulsating 2-2 home draw with Manchester City in what has surely been the game of the season so far.
The Gunners showed class and character to come from behind to lead against the Premier League champions with two sublime goals from Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez.
A late Martin Demichelis header meant City came away with a deserved point but there was enough evidence to suggest Arsenal will be in and amongst the title contenders this season despite collecting just six points from a possible 12 after three consecutive draws.
What appears most impressive about Arsenal is the strength in depth they can call upon in the midfield areas and the fact Wenger has the ability to tinker with the personnel and play a number of different systems.
Here, we have identified five possible midfield combinations we expect to see the Gunners use this season, and given our say on which we feel is the most effective.
