Centre-back: Per Mertesacker

Per Mertesacker had played every minute of Arsenal's campaign until he was rested for the League Cup tie against Chelsea.

Unsurprisingly, Chelsea had a field day and Arsenal were lucky they only wanted two goals on the night.

The big friendly German has a ton of experience and probably deserves the captain's armband at Arsenal.

He's the captain in this combined XI and therefore starts ahead of Daniel Agger.
