Arsene Wenger needs Per Mertesacker to be his rock with injuries continuing to rock the Arsenal defense and in Week 9 that's exactly what the German was.
He certainly wasn't spectacular but he rarely is. More importantly the German World Cup winner was extremely solid. He blocked two shots and intercepted a couple of passes on the way to a clean sheet and a double digit fantasy performance in the Yahoo format. With Burnley next on the agenda there is a better than average chance that Mertesacker will follow up with another big weekend. Oct 28 - 3:19 PM
