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.
- Arsenal turn to ‘one-goal’ striker with Vlahovic transfer unlikely
- Arsenal anger as Aubameyang holds out for ‘giant’ transfer
- Arsenal 0-0 Burnley player ratings: Gunners lose ground on top four
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.
