Stones loves to play out from the back but Alexis will give him little to no time on the ball and that will really test the Englishman’s ability to play out under pressure. One mistake from Stones could have a huge impact on the outcome of this fixture. Is Alexis’ head still at Arsenal? I think we’ll see by how well he plays in this fixture. He’s had a strange month, dropped against Liverpool, linked with rivals Chelsea and he still hasn’t signed a contract at Arsenal. Is his head in the right place to give everything on the pitch on Sunday? We’ll have to wait and see but for Arsenal to have a chance of taking the three points that they need, they need him at his best.
