Francis Coquelin

Unfortunately Mohamed Elneny is unavailable for the visit of Bayern, meaning Francis Coquelin will likely take up a midfield berth for Arsenal with his unique brand of reckless tackling, poor positional sense and clumsy fouling.

Too often thoughtless in possession, Coquelin is a severe risk against Bayern. He will be sucked in by the calm passing of their midfielders, leaving gaps for the opposition front three to exploit, as he did in the first leg (his stats are above).

In many ways, Coquelin epitomises the failings of Arsenal at the moment. His unlikely ascent to the first-team was impressive, but he is not a player to build a successful team around.
