Francis Coquelin has made quite a name for himself over the past two years.
The French midfielder has gone from peripheral to indispensable via a short loan spell at Charlton Athletic, and has seen a number of youngsters come and go since breaking into Arsène Wenger’s team.

One team-mate who continues to impress is Alex Iwobi and, after the Nigeria forward scored in our New Year’s Day win over Crystal Palace, Coquelin has tipped Big 17 for a big 2017.
“Alex had his breakthrough season but this year he can confirm it even more,” he told Arsenal Player.
“I really like the way he plays. He’s got technique and quick passing. The only thing he needs to add now is goals and he will be a complete player, but he’s a player I really like. 2017 can be his year.”
More polls coming soon...
