Arsenal take on West Bromwich Albion later today and we think Arsene Wenger is going to make a number of changes to the starting lineup.
Matchday: Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: West Brom v Arsenal
Stadium: The Hawthorns
Kick-Off (GMT): Sun 31 Dec 16:30
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
GK) Petr Cech
RCB) Rob Holding
- 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
Arsene Wenger should make a number of changes to his starting lineup with the Chelsea match just a few days away. Rob Holding has performed well this season and deserves a start.
CB) Shkodran Mustafi
Rotation isn’t that necessary in defence meaning Shkodran Mustafi should play.
LCB) Laurent Koscielny
RWB) Calum Chambers
Calum Chambers could play at right wing-back.
CM) Francis Coquelin
Arsene Wenger will presumably rotate in the centre of midfield meaning Francis Coquelin should come in.
CM) Mohamed Elneny
He’ll play if Wenger does indeed rotate.
LWB) Ainsley Maitland-Niles
It’s a toss-up between Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac on the left.
RAM) Alex Iwobi
He should come into the team in attack.
LAM) Alexis Sanchez
He could well start despite Wenger probably resting some key players for Chelsea.
ST) Danny Welbeck
Danny Welbeck should play.
