Four games in, four different midfield setups.
If that suggests anything, then Unai Emery himself can’t answer the question. Someone who possesses an uncontrollable urge to tinker with his side to accommodate the opposition, it feels like the time has come to cement a midfield trio that best brings out of the magic of the front three.
So which three should he go for?
I don’t reallyknow.
But, I have a suggestion that could work. It appears to be the wisest choice. So, here goes.
First of all, it’s best to settle on the formation Emery will adopt. At Liverpool he went for an unconventional diamond setup, which we can safely assume won’t be a recurring theme and was merely a bizarre attempt to stifle one of the best sides in Europe.
A 4-2-3-1 is the most viable option, which could also be perceived as a 4-3-3 that includes one more attack-minded midfielder.
While deciding on the trio as a whole is tricky, the number ten role picks itself.
Dani Ceballos showed his class in his first league start during the 2-1 win over Burnley. What was prevalent from that performance, as well as in his cameo against Tottenham, was a level of fight so enriching it melted Gunners fans’ hearts almost immediately.
As vocal as he was energetic, nobody could claim he was anything other than dedicated to the cause in both matches. Moreover, he actually looked the part both technically and creatively. The passion was there for all to see, but that classic Spanish trait of quick feet and technical craft had fans reminiscing of former Gunner Santi Cazorla.
Two assists against the Clarets is beneficial to his cause. An assist apiece for Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the cementing of his spot.
