Matchday: Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: FC Köln v Arsenal
Kick-Off (GMT): Thu 23 Nov 18:00
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
GK) David Ospina
David Ospina is back fit and should retain his spot in the Europa League team.
- Arsenal prepare loan offer for striker with two goals in 32 games
- Ex-Arsenal boss Unai Emery set to become next Newcastle manager
- ‘Unhappy’ Arsenal striker will only stay if one promise is met
RCB) Mathieu Debuchy
The Frenchman should continue in the centre.
CB) Per Mertesacker
LCB) Rob Holding
Rob Holding has been carrying a slight injury problem but should be fit enough to start.
RWB) Reiss Nelson
Reiss Nelson will play.
CM) Mohamed Elneny
Mohamed Elneny hasn’t played much football for Arsenal in midfield lately but we think that will change this evening.
CM) Francis Coquelin
We think Francis Coquelin will be given more time on the pitch.
LWB) Ainsley Maitland-Niles
RAM) Danny Welbeck
Danny Welbeck is returning from injury and this match is the ideal time to give him some minutes on the pitch.
LAM) Jack Wilshere
Jack Wilshere will start.
ST) Olivier Giroud
The Frenchman returned to training on Wednesday and should be fit enough to start despite his recent injury.
