Confirmed Arsenal team for crunch Ostersund Europa League Match – Weak or not?

It is absolutely crucial that Arsenal get a great result tonight to take back to the Emirates but we cannot assume that it will be a pushover. Ostersund may not have a great history, in fact the club has been around for even less time than Arsene Wenger has been at Arsenal, but they have achieved great things from very humble beginnings, and they have not lost one game at home yet in this competition. It is expected to be minus 10 tonight so Arsenal will have a very frosty reception!

So this is the team that Wenger has chosen, in the absence of Ramsey, Wilshere, Koscielny, Lacazette and Aubameyang.

So Wenger has gone with an attacking formation of 4-2-4 and we have AMN and Elneny, with Iwobi, Ozil, Mkhi and Welbeck going for goals.

We have Xhaka and Kolasinac on the bench to hopefully aid our attacking line-up if they are struggling, but more important for me is the prescence of Nketiah on the bench if Welbeck is not quite as ready as Wenger thinks he is!

    if we loose to ostriches wengger needs to be chased away with a broomstick.
    He is becoming a parasite

  2. McLov

    Not a really strong like up.

    Iwobi, Welbeck, Elnenu all relegation team material and this is our only chance for CL.

      Stop playing favourites because they are african players,they are not alone.
      mustafi chambers ospina also belong with them.
      Mikki belllerin monreal are all too overrated

      1. McLov

        Whut? Welbeck is not African and Iwobis been living almost all his life in England.

        Stop racist thinking.

        @tatgooner – I don’t care if Iwobi is black, white , yellow or red. I don’t want him to play because he is shit! That’s the only reason!

  3. gotanidea

    Sooo…. 4-2-3-1?

    Bellerin Chambers Mustafi Monreal
    Niles Elneny
    Mkhitaryan Ozil Iwobi

    Or 4-3-3?

    Bellerin Chambers Mustafi Monreal
    Elneny Ozil
    Mkhitaryan Welbeck Iwobi

    Why doesn’t Kolasinac start?

    Arsenal are playing Ostersunds in the Europa League tonight. If you’ve not heard of them before, they’re a small club from North London.

          So now we’re congratulating spud supporters, for taking the pi.s new level of shite has been reached well done.

  5. Grandad

    Great news Xhaka does not start and AMN in midfield role.Looks a well balanced side.Let’s hope Mustafi has one of his better games.

  6. Innit

    Could be worse.
    Anyway, all i want is a win
    A draw won’t be a disaster but let’s face it we need a win after Spurs loss and heading into City

  7. sfgunner

    what is it about these arsenal teams that show brilliance and dominance then have periods of utter crap, the spurs match was an example, 10” of getting dominated in an even weighted match

  8. Avenger

    Let me see 2 goals one the Ostersund goalkeeper mistake the second their
    own goal Arsenal offence inoperative for a 75 % possession in the first half.

  9. Innit

    We are doing better then i thought we would do.
    Thanks Ozil
    Welbeck makes me miss Aubameyang and Lacazette.
    I hope Dortmund don’t qualify so that Aubameyang can play for us. So far they are losing by one goal
