Granit Xhaka

In truth, Xhaka has been a player Arteta has relied on previously. But now the Swiss is starting to really show his true quality in midfield.

Xhaka is not a defensive midfielder and never was. He is now thriving as a left-sided No 8, with a real attacking threat.

Arsenal fans are starting to change their mind on Xhaka. He is one of the first names on the team sheet at the moment.

Gabriel Martinelli

With Emile Smith Rowe not fully fit for the start of the season, and again injured now, the chance was there for Martinelli to nail down a starting spot. The Brazilian has certainly done that.

He has three goals in his seven league appearances and is one of just three Arsenal players to have started every match in all competitions this term. Martinelli was unfortunate to have a goal at Old Trafford ruled out but the way he took the chance showed how much he has improved in those positions.
