This is a very tricky situation, even without the political turmoil in the Ukraine, as we will be desperate to see our best players kept fit for Arsenal’s massive game against Tottenham on Sunday.
We already have Nacho Monreal and Alexandre Lacazette on the treatment table and Stephan Lichtsteiner is also a doubt, but can Emery afford to send any of our first team stars on the plane to Kiev tonight?
I am thinking that Petr Cech will definitely be in goal and the youngsters Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith Rowe, Joe Willock and Julio Pleguezuelo, and possibly Zech Medley will also be starting ,as they all missed Laurent Koscielny’s comeback game against Derby on Tuesday.
Emery won’t want to start a full team of rookies though as we still need the win to guarantee to finish top of the table, and Mohammed Elneny, Carl Jenkinson, Maitland-Niles and possibly Mhkitaryan, who needs a confidence booster, are likely to start.
We are yet to see Emery’s squad list for the players that are making the trip, but who would you start in this very unwanted match tomorrow?
