Jordi Gomez

STAR MAN
Jordi Gomez
The cultured Spanish midfielder joined the club from Swansea in 2009, having started his career at Barcelona. Good on the ball and tenacious in the tackle, Gomez scored a hat-trick in Wigan's 3-2 win over Reading last month. Arsenal's midfield will be keen to close the 27-year-old down at all times.
