Official Arsenal lineup – Freddie has gone with a mixed lineup as expected
Freddie Ljungberg was always going to pick a team for tonight’s game against Standard Liege with the game against Man City on Sunday in mind.
Some positions he had no choice but to select players that will feature against City because of injury. But there still is a good sprinkling of youth and fringe players.
📋 Here's our team in Belgium tonight…

For the record, Arsenal would have to lose by five goals and Eintracht Frankfurt to win to be knocked out.
Additionally, if they finish second in the group that means they will not be seeded for the next stage of the competition. That is something to avoid otherwise they run the risk of playing the likes of Ajax or Inter Milan.
This is a competition they need to be serious about as it may be the only route to Champions League football next season.
