Saka and Tierney to return: How Arsenal could line up vs Wolves

Published

on

 

Arsenal extended their Premier League unbeaten run to seven games with a draw against Manchester United at the weekend, but Mikel Arteta’s side aren’t really in a position to be celebrating dropped points.

 

The Gunners are still a way off the European places, and they need to keep winning to maintain any hope of finishing the season in them.

 

Arteta will probably need to make a few changes in midweek, however, having started almost exactly the same team against both Southampton and Manchester United last week. Here’s our Arsenal predicted lineup vs Wolves

Goalkeeper

Bernd Leno of Arsenal looks on after he makes a save during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Manchester United at Emirates Stadium
After Mat Ryan’s knock ahead of the weekend, there’s even less doubt about the starting goalkeeper. Bernd Leno played excellently and kept another clean sheet against Manchester United, so he’ll keep his place here.

Defence

Gabriel Magalhaes and Pablo Mari are both potential options to give David Luiz a rest, but Mari is still a fitness doubt at the moment. It’s hard to see Arteta dropping both Luiz and Holding at once, so Holding will probably keep his place alongside Gabriel.

You get the impression that Kieran Tierney is only narrowly missing out at the moment. He’s taking part in squad training sessions, and the official Arsenal updates suggest it was only a late call that ruled him out of the Manchester United match.

As a result, we’re predicting him to make his comeback to the team on Tuesday. Hector Bellerin will presumably start on the right, given the only alternative is Cedric Soares, who has played even more often than Bellerin in the last four matches.

Midfield

Arsenal’s Norwegian midfielder Martin Odegaard (L) chats with Arsenal’s Swiss midfielder Granit Xhaka (C) and Manchester United’s Swedish defender Victor Lindelof (R)
Granit Xhaka put in a good performance at the weekend and is likely to continue to keep his place in the side. He’s one of those rare players who doesn’t often need a rest, and he’s also important to the team right now.

We’d all like to see Thomas Partey alongside him, but the Ghana international has had all those injury problems lately and it would be a risk to include him as a starter again. The same goes for Emile Smith Rowe.

As a result, we’re predicting a couple of changes in midfield, with Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard coming in. This is partly what Odegaard was brought in for, to help ensure we get the best out of Smith Rowe by not overplaying him.

Forward

It’s hard to see anyone other than Alexandre Lacazette starting up front. Eddie Nketiah is available, but right now he’s only playing when Arteta absolutely has to rest Lacazette. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is seemingly quarantining.

If Bukayo Saka is fit, he’ll surely come back in. Nicolas Pepe worked hard and completed another 90 minutes on Saturday, so a rest might be a good idea for him.

Gabriel Martinelli and Willian only played 45 each at the weekend, so it could be either of them against Wolves on the left. Martinelli is surely the bigger goal threat, which is important in Aubameyang’s absence, so we’re putting him in.

Just In: New pictures of Arsenal’s 2021/22 away kit leaked

Published

on

The first pictures of Arsenal’s first team squad sporting next season’s away kit have been leaked.

After this season’s, bloodshot eyes shirt, the club are returning to a more traditional yellow and blue combination for 2021/22.

The shade of yellow – ‘pearl citrine’ in adidas parlance – may look a little like custard but the use of the stripped-back cannon badge is a nice touch.

We expect to see similar shots of the home and third kits in due course. The latter is predicted to be blue with a lightning motif inspired by the kits of the mid-nineties.
