Arsenal take on PSG in the Champions League group stage on Tuesday night and this is how we expect The Gunners to line up.
Matchday: Match Preview – Team News – Betting Preview
Match: PSG v Arsenal
Stadium: Parc des Princes
Kick Off (GMT): Tue Sep 13 19:45
We need a result in this match to have a hope of topping the group and progressing further in the competition.
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:
Goalkeeper – Petr Cech
- Club legend Kanu slams Arsenal for ‘surprise’ academy player sale
- Arsenal apology ‘we made a mistake and withdraw from Super League’
- European Super League: Arsenal officially join breakaway competition
The Arsenal number one will keep his place in goal. Petr Cech was rather unfortunate to concede an own goal during last Saturday’s clash against Southampton. The Czech stopper generally had a very good match and will hope for another against tough opposition.
Right Back – Hector Bellerin
Arsenal will probably stick with Hector Bellerin at right back. The Spanish full back played very well on the weekend and will expect more of the same. It will be a tough test for the youngster against an impressive PSG attack.
Centre Back – Shkodran Mustafi
The German centre back will probably make his Champions League debut for The Gunners against PSG. Shkodran Mustafi had a steady Premier League debut last Saturday and Arsenal fans will expect more of the same.
Centre Back – Laurent Koscielny
Although Koscielny is currently on the injury list and a doubt for the Champions League game, we expect Laurent Koscielny to battle through the facial injury he sustained on the weekend and take to the field against PSG.
Left Back – Nacho Monreal
Monreal will undoubtedly keep his place at left back. The Spaniard hasn’t had the best start to the season in all honesty and will need to improve to fend off the threat of Kieran Gibbs.
