The confirmed starting XI for Arsenal v Sevilla announced – Trossard starts

Arsenal seem to be going through a growining injury crisis every week, and with the games coming thick and fast Arteta has no choice but to rotate when he can.

Having said that, the boss is fully aware that a win tonight will practically secure a place in the knockout stages so he must play the best team he has available right now, no matter the dangers of burnout.

So, going on the urgent need for the full three points, this is the Arsenal starting line up that Daisy predicted earlier


White – Saliba – Gabriel – Tomiyasu

Jorginho – Rice – Havertz

Saka – Nketiah – Martinelli

So, other than my personal doubts that Nketiah or Martinelli will be fit enough, I don’t think she will be far wrong.

So now let us look at the confirmed team just announced by Arsenal…..

Arsenal XI vs. Sevilla: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Rice, Jorginho, Havertz; Saka, Martinelli, Trossard.

Arsenal subs: Ramsdale, Hein, Cedric, Kiwior, Zinchenko, Vieira, Nelson, Elneny, Cozier-Duberry, Sagoe Jr.

    1. Same as lineup that played NewCastle with the exception of Nketiah. I am not surprised, I predicted it. It’s a strong midfield. And I am also happy for Arsenal bench, seasons ago with the numbers of star players we wouldn’t have survived. Epl

  1. Defense should be alright. Jorginho, Havertz.. Hopefully will prove me wrong when I say they will be our burden again tonight

  2. Once again we start with 10.5 men due to Havertz starting, but even so we should have enough firepower. Good to see Leo Trossard start at home and I expect him to do a lot of harm to Seville. It’s about time for Bukayo to give us a game, it’s been a while.

  3. I hope its Havertz as 9 and trossard in midfield rather than the opposite which most likely the case.

  4. It sucks that I can’t stay up as need to wake up alright for work. But I hope we keep all the distractions of the weekend at bay and play well to give a treat for the match going supporters.

    Ps- considering we have all of Havertz and Trossard and Martinelli with us along with Tomi for the forward-left side, is MA going to invert from the opposite side, overload the middle and ping cross field balls to Havent to knock down for Marty or Tross? Considering Saliba also plays on the right….

    1. Let’s put it this way- he still has a contract and from what I recall didn’t fancy any of the options on offer at the end of last season. As he is on silly money it’s hardly surprising – just shy of £14m over 4 years.

      1. Thanks Sue. Will never understand why he was retained in the first place if he would only be warming the bench and I’m not to sure what significance he has to the team now. He seems more like dead weight than a contributor.

    2. In all honesty, he did do a decent job when he was called upon in the pass, In one outstanding game at left back he made a huge diagonal pass to Saka to score.

      The team may have out grown him now, but he has served us well, if you ask me

  5. That seemed like his first ever attempt at heading the ball, ever… Artetas reaction to it says it all…😂

  6. Whatever outcome of the match, Arteta should take full responsibility as the selection is on him. I would have preferred to have Rambo and Elneny in the place of Jorginho and Raya.

    Rotation is health for any team. Arsenal should not be an exception. A formation of 4-2-3-1 should also be considered depending on tactics.

    1. Yeah it’s quite sad actually, they were always one of my fav teams to watch outside of England.

      Shadow of their former self. Martinelli is ripping them to shreds at the moment!

  7. I don’t mean to criticise but Martinelli needs to do a bit better with his final pass.
    I must say Jorginho’s pass was Hollywood.

    1. I think you are missing the part where there’s no-one in the middle when he first beats his man…Trossard and Havertz aren’t making a early run.

      He’s forced to hold on and by that stage box is crowded.

  8. A completely one sided half with only a goal to show for it.

    The Sevilla guy was lucky not to be carded for the niggly fouls on Saka and Martinelli was like a steam train on the left.

    Can’t fault much, other than the header or almost not a header by Havertz was pathetic. That was a sure sign that his confidence is shot.

    NIcely worked goal too.

    Until the latter stages of the half, we were not able to deliver sufficiently in the final third. Must do better for the next half

  9. Unlike Newcastle, Sevilla didn’t put an extra effort to bully Arsenal physically. Had they played with more pace, height and power, our players could’ve been nervous

    Jorginho’s through ball was great and Martinelli wreaked havoc in Sevilla’s area despite not producing an assist or goal

  10. Its probably the weakest opposition we will play anytime soon. We penetrate the box so easily yet only one really good chance, says a lot about our attacking capabilities. Havartz, and attacking player, actually gives us less attacking than Xhake, and Rice at 8 is also not the one to create chances. With a proper striker and AM we should be 3 or 4 nil up.

    1. When will you people stop complaining and enjoy the match? It’s not easy because Arsenal are doing well right? Gosh!
