Team against Swansea - will Ozil play out of his skin to impress his prospective employer?

I am cynical.
Both Alexis and Ozil may have been advised by their agents to play out of their skin to impress prospective employers who are willing to pay them 300,000+ pw.

Especially both of them can leave on a song in January or on a Bosman in July.

A desperate Arsene Wenger, another one that needed to save his bacon, will field both of them to maintain current upward trend of winning ... winning ... and more winning.

I see Arsene Wenger again playing Ramsey as a box-to-box No. 8, leaving Xhaka holding the can in midfield as the sole libero sweeping between the lines in front of Back-3. He is to provide that defensive shield and plug all those holes opening up between defenders and to anticipate and cut-out passing channels and then launch counter-attack with his accurate long ball.

But then Bellerin is having a slump and not providing defending cover at right flank.
With both Bellerin and Ramsey caught out of position in opponent box, our right flank is always vulnerable to counter attack.
Perhaps it is time to field a bona fide right back like Debuchy to strengthen the right-side and give Bellerin a rest ... and drop him to play against Red Star Belgrade. Bellerin will be superb playing against European side rather than physical English teams.
