The gunners have today been welcomed at the Bloomfield Road Stadium by Blackpool and Arsenal’s boss Unai Emery has selected a squad that consists of young attackers that will need to use this chance to impress him. He however has a weak bench because only Alexandre Lacazette is a threat.
ARSENAL STARTING ELEVEN TO FACE BLACKPOOL
Cech, Lichtsteiner, Koscielny, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Elneny, Ramsey, Maitland-Niles, Willock, Iwobi, Nketiah
Martinez, Jenkinson, Medley, Torreira, Guendouzi, Saka, Lacazette
It is surprising that Unai Emery has decided to bench Alexandre Lacazette yet the French international has been lacking game time in the last few weeks but he will probably come in as a substitute in the second half.
The gunners will be hoping that the defence which the coach has used today doesn’t leak goals because the gunners have in the last few weeks been criticized for having one of the worst defences in the Premier League. Blackpool will probably be an easy opponent for the gunners.
