Unai Emery has named the Arsenal starting XI that he thinks will best serve us defending our 2-0 lead, and you have the be happy to see a return to our favoured 3-4-2-1 system, and Xhaka and Torreira was a must.
The Spanish boss is no stranger to Europa League action, having guided Seville to back-to-back-to-back competition wins between 2014 and 2016. Tonight’s task will not be an easy one, despite the dominant scoreline at the Emirates last week, but a goal would surely put Napoli in serious trouble.
Our 2-0 win means that any goal from us will see the hosts have to vie for four or more goals, and when that mentality kicks in, there will be holes in the defence for us to aim for.

Mustafi returning to the bench is also a relief personally, as he has been partial to errors of late, and is starting to become a burden on our defence. (I couldn’t care less if he won all seven aerial battles against 10-man Watford, he scares me!)
Lacazette and Aubameyang in the line-up was also a must, and will have our opponents worried about opening themselves up too much at the back, and I will be very surprised if we don’t bag at least one tonight.
I’m going for a 2-2 draw tonight. Napoli will be coming at us but won’t be able to control the game enough to get back into it, but there is no doubt about their capabilities in attack.
What are you backing tonight? Should we be at all worried?
