Centre-Backs

One of many positions that Ljungberg is still getting to grips with, it seems as though as one individual has thrust himself into the lead: Calum Chambers, who was only introduced in the closing stages of Thursday night’s draw against Standard Liege because Arsenal switched to a back four. Expect him to start again.

Alongside Chambers, the picture is a little murkier. Sokratis started last weekend, seemingly pushing himself above David Luiz, but was extremely poor in both that outing, on Thursday night, and throughout the season more generally.

I expect to see Sokratis again on Sunday, partly because he was substituted early in the Liege draw and partly because Arsenal will do be a whole lot of defending, something that the Greek international has proven capable at when sitting deep and digging in. It could easily backfire, but Ljungberg but not exactly have many other options.
