Arteta

Mikel Arteta epitomises Arsenal’s recent troubles under Wenger. The 32-year-old Spaniard has been run into the ground physically of late and now week after week his faults are becoming brutally exposed. The Spaniard has never been the most physical of midfielder’s but his worrying fitness concerns are leaving some to wonder whether this is the beginning of the end for the talented playmaker. Time after time he is being over-run by quicker and more physical midfielders, and the absence of someone like Aaron Ramsey from the side is becoming all the more evident now. It may possibly be time to cash in on Arteta while he still holds significant value.
