It is a little early in the week to be putting out a predicted Arsenal line up to face Tottenham on Sunday but the intention is not to be like some sage able to second guess Unai Emery but rather to create debate on what team the Spaniard should go with.
Hopefully, he will not go with the maniacal diamond formation and ignore the dangers that Tottenham can present down the flanks.
It is also a little difficult to totally predict the line up with Nacho Monreal possibly leaving the Emirates this week, however, I would not have him as the left wing-back anyway, that role would be reserved for Sead Kolasinac.
Anyway, here is my predicted starting line-up
That seems to me to be the very strongest eleven that Emery can field, it takes care of the flanks, has toughness and creativity in the midfield, Lacazette in the middle up front with Aubameyang and Pepe on the wings with the freedom to come inside as required.
Obviously, Emery will surprise us and the chances of either Guendouzi or Xhaka being included are there, also it would be unwise to rule out Ozil and even Mkhitaryan, I mean, he does love to put out bewildering line-ups on occasions.
So there you have my prediction, what are your thoughts?
