Will Ainsley play in central midfield at Forest?

Be it at full-back or wing-back, on the left or on the right, Ainsley Maitland-Niles has impressed for us this season.

Before this season, however, the 20-year-old was forging a reputation for himself as a promising central midfielder.

Arsène Wenger has said he’ll rotate his team when we visit Nottingham Forest in the Emirates FA Cup on Friday - so could Maitland-Niles start in the middle?

“It's a possibility,” Wenger said. “It's his preferred position but at the moment I have Kolasinac out, Monreal out and I don't have much choice on the left side unless I play another young boy in Josh Da Silva. I haven't made that decision yet.

“I don't see a difference with the guys who have played more in the Premier League than the guys who have played in the Europa League. It's true that some of them have a bit of a harder life as they want to play as well.

“I rate their contribution and I rate them as players as high as the guys who play. But I have to make decisions. That's the kind of problems that every manager has.”
