Nelson, 17, could be in line for his first Arsenal start in Wednesday's Carabao Cup third-round tie against Doncaster at the Emirates Stadium. The 25-year-old has undoubtedly failed to fulfill his potential but he can still make a difference in the heart of Arsenal's midfield.

However he has a run-out against Cologne in the Europa League last week, and is expected to feature against Doncaster Rovers tonight in the English League Cup. But that was it, Doncaster did not score and it was Arsenal's night, and Wilshere's. The Gunners were painfully slow and nowhere near as ruthless as they should have been. "After that we did the job even though we did not have anymore the style we want to play and the flair to kill the game off". He made his first Premier League start against Liverpool, but has since been used from the bench in the rest of our league games. "So to get Arsenal away, Ross would have been organising everyone to be going".

In the second half, Maitland-Niles was more disciplined, as he recognised the need to hold his position and support the callow Josh Dasilva, who had come on at half-time in central defence. "He is very calm in front of goal and has great technique".

"We created chances - the deflected shot and the one that hit the bar - and we stayed in the game for as long as we could".

Alexis Sanchez is likely to get another game under his belt following his cameo against Chelsea, and he could play a supporting role alongside Theo Walcott, who has barely featured this term. He left Niall Mason and Tommy Rowe ball-watching, took it down and stabbed it past Ian Lawlor, a goal to sum up Arsenal's superiority.

If the footballing gods have any mercy, Welbeck will spend more time roaming in that four-pronged attack this season than he will in the rehab room.
