Last week I put out my predicted line-up against Newcastle and within just a few hours it was announced that Mesut Ozil would not be playing due to ongoing security threats, I am hoping that we do not get a repeat this week and that my predicted line-up is very close to what Unai Emery will go with.
Leno will start in goal and he is probably the only certainty these days with so many options for Emery to choose from when it comes to the outfield players.
I sadly do expect to see Chambers dropped with Luiz coming in, a decision I disagree with, I cannot see the justification of changing a defence that kept a clean sheet away from home.
Monreal, Sokratis and Maitland-Niles should be the other defenders Emery goes with.
In midfield, Torreira should get a start and if Xhaka is ruled out due to injury concerns then Guendouzi looks a good thing to play alongside the Uruguayan.
Then we get to the really exciting part, normally I would have gone with Ozil but considering the circumstances, I am backing Ceballos to start alongside Aubameynag and Pepe with Lacazette in front of those three.
So, that is my prediction and an exciting team it does look like but as usual with Emery expect to be surprised.
