One may suppose that Ruben Neves would merely slot into the identical place vacated by Granit Xhaka.
The Swiss midfielder has performed alongside Thomas Partey in a 4-2-3-1 system on many events.
Alternatively, Mikel Arteta has additionally trialled a 3-4-3 system wherein Xhaka has performed once more as one of many two central midfielders.
Neves may actually fill within the position that Xhaka has been deployed in. His defensive statistics for defensive duels and interceptions are higher than that of Xhaka for final season.
Nevertheless, Neves is a participant that does wish to enterprise forwards and discover house on the sting of the field to both shoot or discover a ball into the 18-yard space for a teammate.
Enjoying Neves and Partey collectively however in a 4-3-3 formation may open up some new alternatives for Arsenal. Ought to the membership look to pursue a quantity 6 type defensive midfielder with mobility, reminiscent of Yves Bissouma, they could possibly be positioned behind Neves and Partey.
This might give the pair extra freedom and, for Partey particularly, better assurance about influencing the sport within the remaining third.
Ought to Xhaka depart, solely focusing on his alternative can be a mistake by Arsenal. Bringing in two central midfielders of contrasting types would supply better versatility, variation and high quality for Mikel Arteta to utilise.
