Like Mustafi, I can see Holding getting lots of game time on the left ahead of Monreal, but for now I think Wenger will opt with experience and reward Monreal for his fine form as a left-sided central defender. He seems the ideal fit for this position in this formation – he reads the game very well, but his lack of pace is less likely to be exposed in this tighter system. His attacking influence has been limited in recent years, so I think this role is tailor made for his attributes.
