It’s the first home match of this season’s Champions League as Arsenal take on FC Basel at the Emirates. Both sides are on excellent form in their domestic leagues so it should be a tough match for the Gunners.
Match: Arsenal v FC Basel
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick Off (GMT): Tue 28 Sep 19:45
It’s important to get that first Champions League win tonight, here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:
GK) David Ospina
- 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
The Colombian seems to be Wenger’s Champions League goalkeeper so he should start tonight. He was man of the match against PSG but will probably be hoping for a quieter night tonight.
RB) Hector Bellerin
Arsenal’s Spaniard should keep his place at right back tonight. Hector Bellerin continues to thrive for The Gunners and put in another good performance on the weekend.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
Laurent Koscielny will undoubtedly start for The Gunners. The Frenchman was excellent on the weekend but didn’t have the best of matches against PSG in the previous Champions League round.
CB) Shkodran Mustafi
The German should keep his place at the back. Mustafi and Koscielny are developing into an excellent partnership and Wenger will be keen to keep it that way.
LB) Nacho Monreal
The Spaniard was very good against Chelsea on the weekend but hasn’t had the best start to the season by his very high standards. Nacho Monreal will be hoping for a better performance tonight.
