The games are coming thick and fast for Arsenal at the moment and Unai Emery will definitely have one eye on this weekend’s crucial visit of Liverpool to the Emirates, but the Spaniard seems determined to put out a strong team for every single game, no matter how easy the opposition looks.
I am feeling pretty sure that this will be Petr Cech’s comeback game although he is not expected to have too much to do. There are bound to be a few youngsters in the side with our defence getting all the injuries, but we can only hope that Monreal and Kolasinac are available. Their ‘minor’ injuries seem to be taking a while to shake off. Sokratis should be a certain starter as should the youngster Smith-Rowe. I would also like to see Zech Medley, Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock given a run out again. Mustafi probably needs a confidence boost and should play. I think Ozil and Lacazette will both be rested. I am sure there will be a very strong bench as usual just in case things start going wrong…
So here is my predicted line-up..
Lichtsteiner.. Mustafi.. Sokratis.. Medley
Elneny.. Ramsey.. Mhkitaryan
Smith-Rowe.. Aubameyang.. Welbeck
Should that be enough to deal with Blackpool tomorrow night? Who would you like to see playing?
