    Aren't many midfielders that have all those qualities., probably can't play like you used to 20 years ago mate, game has evolved.

    Id like us to return to powerful athletic midfield as well.

    Willock isn’t it though, has to be Xhaka for me. Maybe Ceballos. Until he’s ready if he improves enough.

    I like Azeez a lot but he plays like he's just had a spliff. Needs to up the intensity cos the boy can play.

    Personally, I feel like the game now is more about pressing and counter pressing and attacking and defending in transitions. I feel like the Vieira's, Petits and Silvas would do fine.

    It will be Xhaka for now but for the near future i think Willock could be it. I know he has his critics and sometimes i even look at how bad he is but I like his profile. He was a midget for most of life and in a couple of years he grows to 6ft2. He needs time to adjust to his new frame. It's really hard. It's not like he's a Pogba who was tall all his life. Big men with good feet are always worth keeping around because their power could be devastating

    Willock's still raw, but with a bit more definition could be an excellent #8. I know people are not convinced and that's cool but IMO there's a real player there if he can get it together.

    Azeez needs to play with the kind of urgency we see from Partey. Whenever Azeez is switched on, he's unplayable but it's not as often as I'd like. It's not helping matters that Bould has decided not to start him for the U23s because he now has two 19 year olds (Akinola and Olayinka) and "experience matters". We might have been better off actually loaning Azeez because sitting on the bench for the U23s does nothing for him.

    Xhaka is two levels above Ceballos over the 90 minutes.

    I don't want a fcuking youtube highlights player as a CM. As a CAM, maybe Ceballos can work. But at CM, you need to be tactically and positionally disciplined.

    Some people are underrating Xhaka imo as he was still our best midfielder when fit even though Ceballos was showing good form.

    It’s obvious that Arteta rates Xhaka highly and he’ll be the one that starts alongside Partey. Got a feeling that he’ll surprise a few this season as long as he’s playing alongside Partey.

    Interesting stuff, most of the comments support Xhaka as his partner, although votes are in favour of Ceballos.
    I'm more concerned about how can anyone without Alzheimer's still go on about Xhaka even after Ceballos was clearly the better player for a while.

    I'd like to see Ceballos and Partey. Someone posted a read of Partey's attributes including his anticipation and spacial awareness and I think he can shield the back 4 cut put passes and also offer enough offensively. With Ceballos, we have a player who can receive the ball from the defence or GK, immediately turn and drive forward, Partey can do the same. Both can also get back and help defensively should we be countered. Ceballos just needs to release the ball a bit quicker at times but I'd like to see these two start.

    have you seen him without a 3ATB? He looks good currently as his flaws are generally not exposed.

    I agree, even though he does not do it for me right now. In terms of ceiling though, he's a bit underrated compared to some of the talents that get talked up, cause he's got it all.

    I just don't get what he is doing at the moment. I think its down to being at an awkward age and level where he is just not getting enough minutes in a nailed on position.

    You’re only saying that because Xhaka has none.

    I dont know tbh. I doubt partey starts straight away, likely partner will be xhaka to start with but DC adds a passing quality xhaka doesnt have. I highly doubt we will goto 4 at the back straight away.

    In fifa mode partey and dc all day long
