Flames deserves to keep his place

Who needs a fox-in-the-box when you've got Flames on fire? Two brilliantly taken goals against Spurs warned the critics not to write off an almost forgotten man.

One thing that Mathieu Flamini oozes is determination and you can't keep a good man down. That's why I'm recommending that he keep his place in the team.

Alongside him, club captain Mikel Arteta was almost unnoticeable. I'm sure he does a lot of talking, as he's a great communicator, but I don't think he's doing enough in other ways.

Nevertheless, no matter what people say about the Art-Flames axis in midfield, the Spurs game was proof it can work. If Arteta wasn't playing, would Flamini have been able to get forward as much as he did? I think not.

So I'd stick with these two in central midfield in Coquelin's absence, although I'm a bit concerned about Arteta's form and not sure how long Flamini can keep up his purple patch.
