It is getting to a point now where certain Arsenal players can be considered automatic starters, and with the new signings to throw into the mix then one can get very close to predicting what team Unai Emery will send out to face Liverpool on Saturday evening.
Another factor to consider is that Emery is very likely to be attack-minded, even at Anfield. The whole reason the club bought Nicolas Pepe and tried desperately to sign Wilfrid Zaha is that they believe it was lack of goals and failing to keep the ball in the opponents half that lead to the intense pressure on the defence.
I am of the opinion that the goalkeeper and defence will remain unchanged from the win over Burnley, I cannot see how Emery will make any changes in that area.
The midfield is a little trickier but Guendouzi is very likely to keep his place as well, but who his partner will be is very much up in the air.
Will Willock keep his place? Will Xhaka be risked if he passes a late fitness test? Is Torreira ready for a start and could Ceballos be pushed further back?
Personally, I think that Emery will drop Willock to the bench and bring Torreira in, the midfield battle needs to be won and a partnership of Guendouzi and Torreira is certainly a battering ram that can match the Reds midfield players and with Ceballos providing the creativity in that area then there will be a good balance of flair and toughness.
That leaves the forward line and you have to think that Emery will go with Pepe from the start at the expense of Nelson to partner Aubameyang just behind Lacazette. Alternatively, he may risk starting Ozil behind Lacazette and Aubameyang, though that does appear unlikely considering the circumstances.
Of course, Emery could mix the midfield up further playing Guendouzi, Torreira and Willock with Ceballos behind the front two of Auba and Laca but for me, I feel it is far more likely that he goes with Ceballos in the midfield and Pepe and Aubameyang behind Lacazette.
Anyway, this is the team I predict that Emery will go with.
