The one thing I love about Unai Emery is that he is never predictable, it is never easy to name the Arsenal line up for any given game.He has a habit of surprising us, well me anyway, and he certainly did in the Newcastle game but that will not stop me having a crack at it.
I have a feeling that he will confound us again on Sunday by not starting Alexandre Lacazette, there I have said it.
I just got the impression from his Friday press conference that he would start with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a lone striker, I cannot point to any particular statement, just the way he discussed Lacazette and the feeling that gave me.
I do not see him changing the back three or wing backs, which means Mustafi will play, however, if Koscielny is not in perfect health then Monreal may come in for him.
I expect to see both Granit Xhaka and Matteo Guendouzi deployed to bully the midfield with Aaron Ramsey joining them to provide his driving runs and creativity.
Finally, I do see Mesut Ozil starting just behind Aubameyang.
So, here is my predicted line up in a 5-3-1-1 formation
No doubt I have called it wrong as usual and Emery will make some subtle changes, and as he has done recently, get it spot on.
Who do you think he will choose today?
