Confirmed Arsenal team to take on FC Zurich in the Europa League

Arsenal mark their return to the Europa League to take on FC Zurich with seven changes made from the weekend’s line-up.

All of Matt Turner, Marquinhos and Fabio Vieira are to make their first starts for the Gunners since joining this summer, coming into a much-changed line-up.

While we predicted two of those to be made, the Brazilian winger who has come into the side wasn’t on our list, but after impressing in our reserves we could well have seen this coming.

This team should be more than strong enough to deal with our rivals, with Nketiah looking in a confident mood when coming off the bench to lead our line, and this will be a first glimpse of what the likes of Vieira and Marquinhos can do in behind the striker.

Which of our new players are you most keen to see make an impression this evening?

  1. Great opportunity for nketiah to prove doubters .. of which am one .. wrong a team at bottom of Swiss league might be classed as equivalent of mid championship team .. and looking forward to seeing viera given a run and Brazilian kid …

    1. Haven’t heard of him. A left winger? Plus i think martinelli will be okay. He seems to have the wind in his tail. The kinda form that you wanna play every game

      1. Taylor-Hart is a lanky LW, kinda like Aubameyang

        We’ll need Martinelli’s energy to play against Everton, so we’d better minimize the injury risk

  2. Looking forward to seeing Viera and Marquinhos. Hopefully we can sub our midfield off early ready for Everton

  3. Only Martinelli, Xhaka and Gabriel from this season’s usual starters to date. I wonder if they’ll be rested v Everton.

    Glad to see Vieira as AM not on the wing – he didn’t look right in the U23s in that position (lots of sideways passes and a few head-down runs that lost the ball) although his team mates just stood and watched him which wouldn’t happen in the 1st team.

    Marquinhos is there for the winger role, so let’s hope he does well.

    It will be interesting to see how these guys perform.

  4. Interesting that Lino Sousa doesn’t seem to be on the bench.

    Apparently Arsenal promoted him to train with the 1st team squad yesterday and The Athletic reported that he’d travel to Switzerland for today’s match with Zurich.

    This is pretty good going for a 17 year-old who only joined from West Brom recently.

  5. Good team, although I’m not a Holding fan. Looking forward so much to seeing Viera and Marquinhos. Zurich 0 vs 6 Arsenal.

  6. Not sure if we have a substitute for Xhaka at the moment. But I would try to give him some off time before the next game.

  7. Good controlled finish with his weaker foot ,great pace as well.
    He looks about 35 though 😂another Kanu

          1. Because he looked older than he was and probably was ,I was just cracking a joke as Marquinhos looks older than he is .
            Now move along I have no time to keep replying to some child .

  8. That’s what you want to see! Someone that’s desperate and hungry to succeed! Pride in his play. Well done young man

  9. Oh my God did see that viera’s pass to Nketiah leading to goal. I dnt want to say what’s on my mind now

  10. Maquinho’s celebration almost got me teary.
    May this goal open you to unprecedented stardom. Welcome home lad.

  11. Its the same story every year. No matter how good we are performing the opposition is always in with a chance.

  12. They were timid and made some mistakes in the first fifteen minutes. Probably because of the lack of game time

    Love Marquinhos’ enthusiasm. I hope he’ll grow like Martinelli

  13. We are merely holding the ball and really doing nothing with it. A city will be 4 goals up by now against an opponent that’s so weak. Not won a single game all season. Lokonga has suddenly become a back passer again like old trafford shot his confidence.

    1. Well that’s ok then because I don’t think there is going to be any sports in England this weekend.i’m only guessing.

  14. Nketia has played well. Not an easy team to break down these lot and glad we are not playing the same gunhoo way as Sunday leaving us exposed

    1. FC Zurich has lost 5 of their opening 7 matches of campaign..
      They are winless..
      Before playing against Arsenal they had conceded 6 goals in 2 matches..
      I don’t know how you say not an easy team to breakdown..
      We should have won it by 2-3 goals with clean sheet..
      It should have been easy routine victory, not the nervy finish of the game

    1. I am worried by Turner Si, he looks like he is totally out of his comfort zone to me. I hope i am wrong and i hope Ramsdale doesn’t get injured.

  15. Lokonga will just be strolling and looking like referee. And this is d guy we depend on in premier league. Am not saying he is not good but as defensive midfield. Too slow and always out of position
