Arsenal will be back in the Europa League action and play tomorrow, Thursday, against Ostersunds FK in the knock out stages of the European second-tier competition after the Gunners made the qualification for the Champions League next season through the top four in the Premier League much harder after losing to Tottenham Hotspurs.
When and where is the match?
When: The match will be on Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 PM BST.
Where: Jamtkraft Arena (away)
Who will play?
Arsene Wenger and Arsenal received a huge injury blow recently after Alexander Lacazette picked up an injury which will rule him out until April, approximately, which means Arsene Wenger will have an issue to have a striker up front who can change the game. However, the starting squad it is expected to be very similar to the Premier League squad.
We predict the starting Xl to be as follows:
Goalkeeper: David Ospina
Defenders: Hector Bellerin, Nacho Monreal, Calum Chambers, and Shkodran Mustafi
Midfielders: Mohamed Elneny, and Granit Xhaka
Forward: Mesut Ozil, Alex Iwobi, Danny Welbeck, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan
Arsenal won’t find the match very easy, regardless of the gap between Arsenal and Ostersunds FK’s level, but the low temperature would play a huge factor. We expect a 2-1 win for Arsenal.
Ostersunds FK was formed 30 days after Arsene Wenger took charge as Arsenal’s manager.
