With the two meeting at Jeonju World Cup Stadium this weekend, the feeling is that if the Motors don't take maximum points, then the title race is going to grind to a halt.

OK, so he's six foot six tall, has won 75 caps for one of the world's leading sides and is a (relative) bargain at £7.6 million. But is Per Mertesacker really the answer to Arsenal's woes?
