Arsenal have officially revealed the starting Xl that will be playing against Newcastle United in the Premier League matchday 34 away from home where Arsene Wenger, Arsenal’s manager, made several changes to the team in preparation for the Europa League semi-finals against Atletico Madrid, where Arsene Wenger doesn’t want any player to get injured, but this will affect the results in the Premier League, and even threat Arsenal’s position in the Premier League for a qualification spot for next season for the Europa League, in case Arsenal doesn’t win the trophy this season.
However, Arsene Wenger is risking his only Europa League senior striker, Alexander Lacazette, to get injured after playing him today alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, which was a long-awaited move.
Arsenal’s starting Xl is as the following:
Goalkeeper: Petr Cech
Defenders: Sead Kolasianc, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers, and Shkodran Mustafi.
Midfielders: Granit Xhaka, Joe Willock, and Mohamed Elneny
Forward: Alex Iwobi, Alexander Lacazette, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Bench: David Ospina, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Per Mertesacker, Sead Kolasinac, Reiss Nelson, Danny Welbeck, and Eddie Nketiah.
Our predicted score
Newcastle United aren’t an easy team, and they were even able to beat Manchester United. We don’t expect an easy match for Arsenal, especially with the changes Arsene Wenger made.
We expect a 2-2 draw.
