Nottingham Forest presents a tricky challenge for Unai Emery this evening in the Carabao Cup, they are on a good run of form and will be determined to cause an upset.
Emery has quite a few balls to juggle, he wants to win the match, he wants to give game time to his three long term injured defenders, he wants to rest senior players, he wants to use his fringe players and he wants to give some of the youngsters a run-out.
With all that in mind I anticipate that he will select Martinez in goal, in fact, that one is a no brainer but the defence is not so easy to guess.
Do not be surprised if Emery picks Tolaji Bola at left-back, he is due a call-up and this sort of game is perfect for him, I certainly think he would be a better option to start than Kieran Tierney who will most likely come off the bench at some point.
Rob Holding is almost certain to start in the centre of defence and I expect Mustafi to be selected alongside him. The right-back position will probably go to Calum Chambers over Hector Bellerin.
Midfield is tricky and it would not surprise me to see Emery start with Torreira, Willock and Smith Rowe with Ozil just in front sitting behind Martinelli and Nelson upfront.
So, this is my predicted line-up.
What team do you think Emery should go with?
