Arsenal will today face Bournemouth and they will come into this game with the hope of getting all the three points. Unai Emery has hint at rotating his squad so we expect to see a different lineup from that used on Sunday when they beat Southampton 2-0.
PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP TO FACE BOURNEMOUTH
Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Suarez, Ozil, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang
Bernd Leno was very outstanding in Arsenal’s match vs Southampton and it would be a bad decision to bench him today. So the German will definitely be in between the goal posts tonight.
Sead Kolasinac was in the starting eleven of Arsenal that played against the Saints but Arsenal’s boss Unai Emery could keep him for the North London Derby hence Monreal getting a chance, Ainsley Maitland-Niles will also cover for Stephan Lichtsteiner who might not be fully fit for today’s game. Mustafi and Sokratis will probably be Arsenal’s centre backs for today’s game.
Matteo Guendouzi was on the bench at the weekend but he could make his way to the starting eleven tonight. The youngster is expected to be paired with Granit Xhaka who had an incredible performance in Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Southampton.
Denis Suarez hasn’t started any match since he joined Arsenal but him and Mkhitaryan are expected to start on the wing because Iwobi got injured on Sunday and Unai Emery will be hoping that he is fit for the North London Derby. Mesut Ozil could make his way back into the lineup that faces Bournemouth tonight.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could start ahead of Alexandre Lacazette if Unai Emery rotates his squad as he said.
