Arsenal will today face Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium and Mikel Arteta will be expected to select the best squad that can get all the three points from the Premier League champions. And so we take a look at Arsenal’s predicted lineup to face Liverpool tonight with all eyes on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
PREDICTED ARSENAL LINEUP TO FACE LIVERPOOL TODAY
TEXT FORM: Martinez, Kolasinac, Luiz, Mustafi, Tierney, Xhaka, Ceballos, Cedric, Aubameyang, Lacazette, Saka
Bernd Leno is still on the sidelines and so Emiliano Martinez will start in this game and he has been so impressive in these last few weeks as some fans believe that he can now start challenging the German international to become the first choice goalkeeper.
THREE MAN DEFENCE:
Sead Kolasinac made a big mistake in the game against Tottenham Hotspur but he is the only left footed player that can play there and so he will start alongside David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi who most believe was also awful at the weekend.
Since Mikel Arteta will definitely use a back three today,they will also need to use wingbacks for width, and Tierney will of course be on the left while Cedric Soares (Bellerin benched) on the right as the gunners will need someone whose defensively better against Liverpool as they are a very good offensive team.
Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos have been impressive together for the last few matches and so there’s no reason why they should not start together in today’s important game.
Bukayo Saka didn’t start in the previous game and the gunners obviously missed him, and so he will definitely start ahead of Pepe. Lacazette scored an outstanding goal in the North London Derby and so he will deserve to start. So Arsenal’s attacking three will consist of Aubameyang, Lacazette and Saka.
