Confirmed Arsenal team to take on Vorskla – A whole Arsenal first team!

This should be Arsenal’s first reserve team game this evening as Arsenal take on Vorskla in the first game of the Europa League Group Stages. This will be the first chance that Unai Emery gets to see his reserves playing some competitive football, albeit against a minor European side and hopefully some of them will be trying to impress the boss enough to earn promotion to the starting line-up…

Not everyone agreed with me but I fully expected Emery to change the whole starting XI, especially with the League game against Everton coming up this weekend, so this was the team that I predicted…

Lichtsteiner – Mavropanos – Holding – Osei-Tutu
Elneny – Torreira – Smith-Rowe
Willock- Nketiah – Welbeck

So now we are just waiting to see which team Emery has decided on, and it should be coming up right now….

Wow! Emery really is taking this seriously!

  2. Lozza says:

    Great team, come on you gunners.

  3. Cliff says:

    Apart from Holding, this is the team we should be starting every week in the premier league.I hope their performance tonight proves me right.Go for it Gunners..

    1. McLov says:

      What? With Elneny? No way!!

      1. Cliff says:

        Elneny is better than the erratic Xhaka defensively. So to me in must win matches I prefer him over Xhaka any day.

        1. Innit says:

          Guendozi is better than Eleny
          And why would you want to start tutu, Welbeck and Wilock every week. Or Niketiah for that matter when when we have Lacazette and Aubameyang?

          1. cliff says:

            Check again.There is no Tutu Willock or Nketiah in that line up..As for Guendouzi he is still learning the trade and i wont hype him.

      2. Someone says:

        I agree with you Elneny is a piece of shit no creativity at all just running around like a headless chicken

  4. Sue says:

    Good line up… bench ain’t bad either ?

  5. gotanidea says:

    I guess Emery wants to test some of these players, to see whether they could perform better than the regular starters or not

    I have got a feeling Welbeck, Holding, Mkhitaryan and Torreira would surprise us

  6. herb says:

    As well I think this lineup is even stronger than the one we have been experimenting with from the beginning of the season.

    I don’t know how to say it but Welbeck, Iwobi, Mkitaryan and Lacazette have a certain connection when they play together; and this i cannot say with the frequent squad of ramsey, xhaka, ozil who are inserted in unsuitable positions that unbalance the team.

  7. Simon Williams says:

    Hope Emile-Row gets on. Superb talent

  8. Grandad says:

    The best back four we’ve fielded this season in my view.

  9. Alldwayfromafrica says:

    Finally we get to see leno in goal and a proper defender in licthsteiner…I hope they both don’t disappoint… Nice to see holding playing too we need every one to get a chance …COYG

    3. MarkMyWords says:

      ronaldo7 dot net always has multiple links to Arsenal games. Best site I know of.

  11. RSH says:

    It’s a good lineup. Looking forward to Leno debut

  12. Jah son says:

    Why is Ramsey both absent from the starting eleven and the bench

    1. Sue says:

      He’s still tired

    2. Admin says:

      Isn’t he tired?

  13. herb says:

    With this lineup surely we can beat this vorskla team by 5 or more goals to nil.

    I am looking forward to lichtsteiner teaching bellerin how to cross a football.

  14. Please Lichsteiner come through and make that RB position yours! So tired of Bellerin!

  15. Dee23 says:

    I prefer this line up to his first team line up used in the premier league.

    1. Sue says:

      I’m afraid I don’t

  16. Roachie says:

    Torreia is mustard!

  17. Okiror says:


  18. Kedar says:

    Why so much empty seats…

  19. Dee23 says:

    Yes Aubameyang!!!

  20. S says:

    torreira first start and he gets injured. Only at arsenal guys…

  21. LENOhappy says:

    Alex iwobi to Pierre emerick aubamayang and arsenal draw the first blood ,and what a pass from Alex iwobi

  22. Rkw says:

    A bit dreary til last few minutes …neat but pointless passing nice move for goal …silent crowd … Torreira has to be regular starter … Sokratis looking better but with zero forward threat that’s not difficult …Iwobi had some nice moves on wing but completely clueless with last pass .. Excepting the goal .. Would throw on a youngster or two from the hour market in hope of injecting a bit of life in to this

    1. Southwest says:

      Iwobo my guy, what a baller. Argue with your phone.

  23. Sue says:

    Welbz has been typical Welbz

  24. LENOhappy says:

    Omg@Rkw,am not sure we are watching the same match,iwobi completely clueless with the last pass,man you need to change your television direction

  25. LENOhappy says:

    Iwobi just gave Mhki another pass that he missed,seconds later he created the chance for mhki which he crossed for webz to score

  26. Dee23 says:

    Oh yes, Wellbeck!

  27. Sue says:

    BOOM!!! Yo Pierre ?

  28. Kedar says:

    Ozil is useless… Just jogs on ground…

    1. Dee23 says:

      But yet he scores?


  29. Sheet head says:

    Is that Iwobi or Messi ???

  30. Kedar says:

    Again no Clean Sheet
    Leno looks annoyed

  31. ozila says:

    iwobi should be a starter and mkhirtaryan should take over the number ten position because he is best we’ve got there.

  32. Tatgooner says:

    kindergarten type of football at the last moment
