Arsenal are in Italy to take on AC Milan in the first leg of what promises to be a tricky Europa League tie.
It’s a huge match for Arsenal Football Club as they come up against AC Milan in the Europa League last 16.
The two sides could not be in more contrasting runs of form with the Gattuso’s Milan team unbeaten in 13 matches.
It’s a season-defining match for Arsenal and here’s how we think they’ll line up:
GK) David Ospina
Arsenal’s cup goalkeeper will surely continue.
RB) Calum Chambers
With Hector Bellerin out of the match and very few other options available, Calum Chambers should deputise at right-back.
RCB) Shkodran Mustafi
Mustafi should start.
LCB) Laurent Koscielny
Laurent Koscielny will start and captain the team.
LB) Sead Kolasinac
Nacho Monreal didn’t travel to Italy meaning that Sead Kolasinac will have a rare start at right-back.
RCM) Aaron Ramsey
LCM) Granit Xhaka
Granit Xhaka will surely play alongside Ramsey in the middle.
RAM) Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Henrikh Mkhitaryan will presumably continue on the right for Arsenal.
CAM) Jack Wilshere
Jack Wilshere should play but may be deployed a little deeper for the Gunners.
LAM) Mesut Ozil
ST) Danny Welbeck
Arsenal may have spent over £100 million on strikers in the last eight months but with neither Alexandre Lacazette nor Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang available to play, Danny Welbeck will surely start up front.
