This. But Iwobi instead of ESR.

I think Iwobi should play at least half that game, the more opportunities he has to show his improvement (if he will remain improving) the more likely he'll win a 1st team starting spot.

As of now I'd say Mkhi, Iwobi and Ramsey are about tied for who starts wide, which basically leaves Ramsey out as he starts CAM.

So Mkhi or Iwobi, again as of now, tied, more good end product from Iwobi could see him edge ahead of Mkhitarayan.

Forgot Mkhitaryan isn’t going to the game

He’s able to get into Azerbaijan but we’re likely not taking him due to security risk

Maybe Ramsey can replace him, whether he likes it or not he needs games to show his worth now.

There's been recent military skirmishes, and ongoing political tension between Armenia (where Mkhi is from) and Azerbaijan. Nobody form either country is allowed into the other without special dispensation. I think the Azerbaijanis were prepared to give it, but we have obviously decided that it's best if he stays at home.

Probably the right choice, all things considered.

Martinez
Lichsteiner - Mustafi - Holding - Kolasinac
Neny - Guendouzi
Wele - Ramsey - Smith-Rowe
Nketiah


Subs: Leno - Jenkinson - Osei-Tutu - Willock - Sheaf - Iwobi - Aubameyang

Would be also good to give Jenkinson some game time. He still has a contract till 2020 and I hope he does well to earn himself a move to some Championship side.
