Arsenal take on Blackpool in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday evening and we think Unai Emery will name a strong lineup for the match.
Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: Arsenal v Blackpool
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick-Off (GMT): 31 Oct 19:45
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
Petr Cech should return in goals to gain some match fitness.
- Ex-Arsenal star favouring a move to America’s MLS to restart career
- Arsenal reportedly weighing up prospect of re-signing in-form goalscorer
- Recently departed Arsenal star reveals he’s living his ‘dream’ at new club
With Hector Bellerin expected to miss the next few matches, Stephan Lichtsteiner should be called upon.
He should start.
Sokratis needs match fitness after picking up an injury and should play.
Nacho Monreal should be fit enough to start on Wednesday.
Mohamed Elneny will return to Arsenal’s midfield.
Emile Smith Rowe
The youngster should start once again in the cup.
The Welshman will presumably play.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan should start again and will need to improve his form if he is to find a place in the Premier League team.
Danny Welbeck should continue up front.
