If we have learned one thing this season it is that guessing what sort of team Unai Emery will put out is as close to an exercise in futility as you can get.
The manager continues to confound us with his selections, sometimes he gets it right like he did last night and sometimes he gets it well wrong as he did against the likes of Wolves and Leicester City.
But that does not mean that we cannot try and work out what the boss is thinking and for me, he will be looking to rest certain players ahead of the Europa League second leg clash at Valencia next week.
One of the most obvious changes will be Leno in for Cech, I think we can all agree that is a given.
I cannot see him selecting Laurent Koscielny, he was carrying a knock last night and even if he was fit I reckon Emery would have rested him anyway and so Nacho Monreal can expect to start.
I would not be surprised if he drops Ainsley Maitland-Niles for the game against Brighton, the young lad is struggling right now and rest may do him the world of good which may mean another call up for Carl Jenkinson.
I can see Lucas Torreira coming in for Mattéo Guendouzi and finally Alex Iwobi instead of Alexandre Lacazette, my thinking is that Emery will want to rest his star man knowing how crucial he could be in the game against Valencia.
I will be honest and admit that is somewhat guesswork on my part and is not really a predicted team, I will wait on injury news updates for that but considering we are at home and that our opponents are Brighton I reckon the team above could be very close to what Emery goes for.
