Interesting reading around the web when people talk defensive midfielder.
‘We don’t play with a defensive midfielder’
People getting a little too caught up in literal meanings there because it obfuscates the fact Wenger hasn’t addressed a glaring squad issue. Simply put, we’re struggling with a player who can break up play, intercept at rapid speed and help the team break quicker. I always speak about him, but Jordan Henderson is the perfect case in point here. He’s huge, explosive over ten metres and he can pass… He might not be the most technically gifted, but he’s Premiership attribute heavy.
