It is not usual that an opening Europa League for Arsenal takes on such importance as the game against Eintracht Frankfurt has but such is the times we live in.
Unai Emery cannot afford to put out a team full of fringe and youth players and will have to mix it up a little, however, there is room for some changes from the team that performed so dismally against Watford on Sunday.
Reading some of the comments on this website and we do get hundreds of them daily I have seen a pattern develop as to which players the fans would like to see play against the Bundesliga outfit and three names stand out.
There is a clamour for Chambers to be recalled, most of the comments say the same thing, he did well against Newcastle United, did not deserve to be dropped and after the calamitous displays from Sokratis and David Luiz, the feeling is that a recall is due.
There is palpable excitement at the prospect of the 23-year-old returning to action after such a long period on the sidelines with injury. The centre back is seen as an automatic replacement in the centre of defence in place of either Sokratis or Luiz, in fact, a partnership of Chambers and Holding seems to be the prefered option for the fans.
Pepe clearly needs more game time and the fans are desperate for him to put in a performance that justifies all the hype, we have seen glimpses of what he can do and the Europa League could be just the competition that launches his Arsenal career off the launchpad.
