Confirmed Arsenal team to face Burnley – Chambers starts

With another gruelling trip to Athens coming up on Thursday, Mikel Arteta will have to pick his starting line-up carefully today so Arsenal can try and get a advantage over Olympiakos to take back to the Emirates.

But we also need a win today to keep our own momentum going, and this was Patrick’s Predicted Arsenal XI for today…

Leno
Bellerin Luiz Gabriel Tierney
Partey Xhaka
Saka Odegaard Aubameyang
Lacazette

I personally think we’ll see Pepe and Willian back with Saka to be rested a little, and maybe Holding to partner Gabriel so we can save the experience of Luiz for Thursday.

And I have a funny feeling that Partey won’t be playing the full 90 minutes and Arteta may start with Ceballos instead.

It is certainly good for our run-in they we have zero injuries at the momen, and it will be very interesting to see how Arteta uses the full squad to our advantage.

Well the team should be announced any second now, and……

Here it is!

Leno, Chambers, Tierney, Luiz, Mari, Xhaka, Partey, Saka, Odegaard, Willian, Aubameyang.

Subs: Ryan, Bellerin, Gabriel, Ceballos, Pepe, Holding, Lacazette, Eleney, Martinelli.

    I am losing patience with Arteta. If we have a better coach probably we might be in contention for the league or at least top for.

    Burnley home and away sud be 6 point.
    Lichester home and away should be 6 point
    Brighton home and away should be 6 point.

    And some other matches we should have win. But arteta is too stubborn to correct his mistakes.

      he might have missed that sitter but pepe was far more influential during his 20 mins compared to willian (or even saka)

    Cheated for the penalty but disgusting management. Either it’s Arteta or its the idiot giving him advice on the sideline but so many bad decisions. Why did we give up a creative midfielder to pair Lacazette with old sleepy Aubamayang. Two penalty box strikers but no one creating. Smart. Xhaka survives the entire game, wow! Chambers had a good game defensively but no threat whatsover on the overlap. Saka should have gone to fullback in the last 10, and someone like Martinellii brought on. I’m sick of the TV pundits saying,” that’s Arsenal”. Bad management today. Fail safe, moan about how unlucky you were.

    People were playing out of position to accommodate Willian – enough is enough. As soon as we had Saka on the left, Pepe on the right and Willian off the pitch – all playing where they should be, things started looking up
