Thierry Henry admits he will be intrigued to see where Aaron Ramsey will fit back into the Arsenal team when both Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are fit and available.

Ramsey played in a more advanced role in midfield for Arsenal on Monday night as he helped the north London side notch up a 2-0 victory over West Brom at The Emirates in the Premier League.

Sanchez started the game but Ozil only came off the bench late on as the Germany international continues his recovery from a knee problem.

Ramsey was named as the man of the match for Arsenal when the Gunners battled to a goalless draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier this month.

And Henry believes that having Ozil, Sanchez and Ramsey all fit and available will make it tricky for Arsene Wenger to fit them all into the same team.

Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Henry said: “You always get that from Aaron Ramsey [a tireless performance].

“Today what was interesting was that Mesut Ozil didn’t play, so he could play higher.

“But Ozil is going to have to come back into the team and they’re going to have to keep it tight, the wingers are going to have to tuck in.

“Are they going to tuck in the same way that Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck did at Chelsea?”

Arsenal return to Europa League action on Thursday night when they take on Russian side BATE Borisov away from home.

The north London side then switch their attentions back to the Premier League and their home clash against Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

Arsenal have not won the title since their famous unbeaten triumph back in 2004.
