Who will Unai Emery select to face Standaard Liege at the Emirates this evening?
In a couple of hours, we will know the official Arsenal team to face Standard Liege in the Europa League. However, as per usual we will have a go at second-guessing Unai Emery.
This is the second group game for both sides following opening wins and both will be looking to maintain momentum. Team selection could be pivotal and I reckon Emery will go very close to the team that beat Eintracht Frankfurt.
Predicted Arsenal Line-up to face Standard Liege
So, no Aubameyang or Pepe but I do expect them to be brought on at some point in the game. Tierney, Bellerin and Holding should all be on from the start.
There should be a return for Mesut Ozil, if there is not then his Arsenal career is definitely over with.
There will be another outing for Mustafi though Emery may well surprise us and put Chambers next to Holding.
I would be happy with that team above, it has creativity and flair in all areas and it has confident youngsters sprinkled through the team.
But as usual, trying to second guess Emery is fraught with risk, he has this habit of bewildering us with some of his line-ups.
But I would be surprised if my predicted line-up is not too far from what Emery goes with.
