The gunners will today lock horns with French side Rennes and their boss Unai Emery will be hoping to rectify the mistake that he did in Belarus a few weeks ago by getting an away win in this UEFA Europa League encounter. To do that, he will have to use a good squad so let’s take a look at the expected lineup to play this game with Denis Suarez and Mesut Ozil starting.


Cech, Maitland-Niles, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal,Torreira, Xhaka, Suarez, Ozil, Iwobi, Aubameyang

FORMATION: 4-2-3-1


Arsenal boss Unai Emery has decided to let Petr Cech be playing in the UEFA Europa League while Bernd Leno who is the first choice goalkeeper plays in the Premier League.


Arsenal’s boss Unai Emery will probably use a back four in this game but he will however rest some of his defenders like Sokratis and Sead Kolasinac for the Manchester United match. Mustafi and Koscielny will be paired together as centre backs while Maitland-Niles and Monreal play as full backs.


Lucas Torreira will not take part in the Manchester United match so the Uruguayan international will be in the starting eleven that faces Rennes this evening. Torreira will be paired with Xhaka because Matteo Guendouzi could be rested for the Manchester United game.


Denis Suarez is yet to start a match for Arsenal this season but he could however be given a chance in this game, Mesut Ozil will probably also start since Unai Emery will certainly start Ramsey over him at the weekend. Mkhitaryan has been impressive in the last few weeks so he will be rested. Arsenal’s attacking trio will consist of Suarez, Ozil and Iwobi.


Alexandre Lacazette is suspended so Aubameyang will of course start in today’s match.
