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
MR – Chambers
AC – Nelson
AC – Theo
FC – Giroud
