There has been an upturn in fortunes for Arsenal FC and us Gooners of late, with wins both home and away against Italian club AC Milan in the last round of the Europa League along with some much needed victories in the Premier League, so we are all hoping that carries on tonight when Arsenal take on CSKA Moscow at the Emirates stadium.
There is more good news for the Arsenal faithful after Arsene Wenger revealed that, apart from the cup-tied Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the long term injury absentee Santi Cazorla, the boss has a fully fit squad to pick his team from.
The main questions ahead of the game were about whether David Ospina or Petr Cech would start and whether Danny Welbeck and Alexandre Lacazette would both be in from the beginning.
Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal,
Xhaka, Wilshere, Ramsey
Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Lacazette
Subs: Macey, Holding, Chambers, Kolasinac, Elneny, Iwobi, Welbeck
So it looks like a 4-4-2 from the Frenchman, with Ozil and Mkhitaryan on either side of Lacazette. We have a lot of taken in midfield as well, so you would expect it to be Arsenal creating the chances, and hopefully pitting a few of them away. COYG!
