I think we'll get Ceballos playing deeper with Partey on the right and Xhaka/Saka rotating on the left of a three man midfield.

I'd be happy with that btw

In an ideal 433 you would have an:
Anchor - Partey
Controller - Xhaka
B2B attacker - like a KDB which we don’t have right now

Till then I expect Arteta to play 343 with the additional creativity coming from Saka on the left and Lacazette dropping deep to bolster midfield.

Arteta needs to grovel to Ozil to come back. Simple.
We need him badly.

We are unable to create chances and yet leave this guy on the bench. Crazy.

We need to bring back the guy who created just 3 goals in the whole last season - yup that makes perfect sense - let's just pray he's no longer a squad player come Monday then this sad fanboy nonsense can finally end.

So all of a sudden a world cup winner, 5 times German player of the year, Real Madrid star, 19 assists a season player has just become shit and he can’t get into the squad ahead of Dani Ceballos and Joe Willock? Yeah that makes sense.

Not suddenly. His decline had been steep over the past two years. Do not think he would changed much today. Probably would've pulled another Willian.

It makes perfect sense - a player who hasn't performed for two years is no longer worth his place - I can list 200 world cup winners none of whom are remotely now worth a starting spot at Arsenal, time catches up with all of them in the end.

Manuel Neuer; Benedikt Höwedes, Mats Hummels, Jérôme Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Toni Kroos, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Sami Khedira; Mesut Özil, Miroslav Klose, Thomas Müller.

How many of the German world cup winners in 2014 would start for Arsenal today? maybe 2/3 ..... not Ozil he's no longer good enough.

Put hardworking players around Ozil and give him his free role. He’ll get us 10 assists a season. At least until we buy more creative midfielders. Saka and Willian on the flanks and Partey and El Neny/Xhaka behind him.

Leaving room for just one of Auba / Laca / Pepe / Nketiah .... with your line up he might get 10 assists but we would be lucky to get 40 goals a season and probably end up in a relegation scrap.

You think Laca, Pepe and Nketiah are top level? I guarantee you Saka and Willian will outshine those three in scoring while making Auba even more effective.
