Mikel Arteta is available for the first time since late-November as Arsenal travel to Monaco to try to save their Champions League campaign on Tuesday.
The Arsenal captain returns to a squad far different than the one he left three-and-a-half months ago. His place in the starting eleven has been usurped by Francis Coquelin who has been outstanding since his recall from a loan spell at Charlton. With Coquelin entrenched as the starter, Wenger will again be in the unusual position of having his captain acting primarily as a reserve. This was an uncomfortable situation with Vermaelen last season and it led to his departure to Barcelona. Arteta may find himself in a similar situation this summer. Mar 17 - 9:47 AM
