3-4-2-1 Formation: Arsenal’s Probable XI vs BATE Borisov



The Europa League is here again on Thursday, getting more exciting, and Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are ready for their next game against BATE Borisov.

Fortunately, the gunners have already booked a place in the knockout stage of the tournament, and Thursday’s results won’t stop them from finishing top of their group.

With this, we can expect manager Arsene Wenger to rest his top stars on Thursday night.

We expect the French boss to rest No. 1 goalie Petr Cech and give David Ospina a chance against BATE, while the likes of Debuchy, Mertesacker and Holding should take care of the backside.

The likes of Kolasinac and Bellerin should be rested for the premier league this weekend, while the duo of Maitland-Niles and Chambers should be given the chance to start in the wing-back positions on Thursday in the Europa League.

We also expect the duo of Mohamed Elneny and Jack Wilshere to take care of the center of the park for Arsenal, while the likes of Walcott, Nelson and Frenchman Olivier Giroud should be in front of attack.

Here is Arsenal’s probable 3-4-2-1 starting XI against BATE Borisov on Thursday.

GK – Ospina
DC – Holding
DC – Per
DC – Debuchy
ML – Maitland-Niles
MC – Wilshere
MC – Elneny

After many days of waiting, new Arsenal recruit might finally be in the pole when Arsenal file out against Vorskla Poltava in the Europa game.

The goalkeeper who came in the summer with the prospect of beating the competition from Petr Cech and emerging as the first team goalkeeper but that did not happen as he did not get the nod from Spanish manager, Unai Emery in the Premier League.

Howbeit, tonight’s Europa game could be the opportunity for Arsenal fans to see their new stopper who had arrived Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

Emery has however given the player a big hint of becoming the first team goalkeeper even in the Premier League.

According to the former PSG manager, the culture of the sharing formula for goalkeepers in which one takes the league and the other takes European competition does not apply as he seeks to make do of the best.
