The gunners will today face Valencia at the Emirates Stadium and the Arsenal fans will be hoping to see their team get back to winning ways since they have lost their last three matches. Unai Emery will be hoping to get his squad right tonight since his selections have recently been questioned by the fans.
PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP TO FACE VALENCIA
Cech, Monreal, Sokratis, Koscielny, Maitland-Niles, Kolasinac, Torreira, Xhaka, Ozil, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Petr Cech has been promised to start all Arsenal’s UEFA Europa League matches and this won’t be changing today even though some believe Leno could start ahead of him since they are now in the semi finals.
The gunners will probably use a back three consisting of Monreal, Sokratis and Koscielny. Monreal missed Arsenal’s match against Leicester City but he has however been seen in training.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac are Unai Emery’s first choice wingbacks, so they will probably start since the gunners will use a 3-4-1-2 formation.
Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka will be paired together since Aaron Ramsey has been ruled out for the rest of the season. It’s going to be a perfect time for Torreira and Xhaka to recover back their form.
The 3-4-1-2 formation requires the gunners to play one central attacking midfielder and that will certainly be Mesut Ozil. The German international has returned to full training ahead of this match and is expected to start.
The gunners will be hoping to start the match on the front foot and Emery will now have to play both Aubameyang and Lacazette since they are more deadly in attack when these two are upfront.
