Holding, Tierney, Bellerin and Lacazette could all start in Europa League clash with Vitoria
The Europa League is back and that means we could see a bunch of Arsenal players in action that should be playing in the Premier League.
In goal, Martinez is nailed on to start with Leno rested as per usual.
In defence, Kieran Tierney should start, as should Hector Bellerin on the flanks. Rob Holding will most likely partner Mustafi in the centre of defence.
Midfield is always a little more complicated but I do expect to see Lucas Torreira and Dani Ceballos named as starters. There should be a recall for Ainsley Maitland-Niles and it would not surprise me to see Joe Willock selected.
That leaves the frontline and you have to think that Gabriel Martinelli starts. The question is, who plays alongside him? I am backing Lacazette to get the nod following his return from injury.
So, this is the line-up I am expecting Emery to go with this evening against the Portuguese opponents.
The usual caveat applies with second-guessing Unai Emery in that he could field almost any sort of team leaving us all shocked. I mean, he does often enough. So, it would be no surprise if Ozil started as an example or Smith-Rowe.
But regardless, whatever team Emery puts out I predict way in advance it will put on a better show than what we saw from the so-called senior team on Monday night in the 1-0 loss against Sheff Utd.
