Arsenal are in Sweden to take on Östersunds FK in the Europa League but face a difficult test thanks to a number of injuries.
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
GK) David Ospina
Petr Cech hasn’t travelled so Ospina will start in goals.
RB) Hector Bellerin
- Balague: Arsenal Have Approached Lille Over Pacy Winger Nicolas Pepe
- Reports: German Giants Have Won The Race To Sign Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey
- Reports: Brexit Could Force Arsenal To Sell Three Key Players
Hector Bellerin will play.
RCB) Shkodran Mustafi
LCB) Calum Chambers
Laurent Koscielny isn’t in the squad and we think Calum Chambers will come into a back four.
LB) Nacho Monreal
The Spaniard will start and presumably captain the team in the absence of Koscielny and Cech.
RCM) Granit Xhaka
Xhaka will play.
LCM) Mohamed Elneny
Mohamed Elneny will undoubtedly start in midfield.
RAM) Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Considering the injury problems to Arsenal, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will undoubtedly start his first Europa League match for the club.
CAM) Alex Iwobi
Iwobi will presumably start.
LAM) Danny Welbeck
Wenger had a lot to say about Danny Welbeck in his pre-match press conference which implies that the Englishman will play.
ST) Mesut Özil
there are rumours that Mesut Özil will be deployed as a false nine. It will be interesting to see how the German copes with this new test.
