Arsenal will entertain FC Zurich at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night as they try to secure a good result in the UEFA Europa League. The Gunners managed to earn a 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest recently which will give them a lot of confidence ahead of this game.
Mikel Arteta will set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could make a few tweaks to his starting XI for this game. Eddie Nketiah could get the nod to lead the charge for the Gunners on the attacking end of the field.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face FC Zurich
Goalkeeper &Defence: Aaron Ramsdale will feature in between the sticks for the Gunners after keeping a clean sheet in his last league outing. Rob Holding could get another chance to impress alongside Gabriel at the heart of the Arsenal backline as they hope to stop the opposition from scoring during the 90 minutes.
Takehiro Tomiyasu will fill in at right-back while Kieran Tierney hopes to impress on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get a chance to get forward and express themselves in the Zurich half.
William Saliba will be available for selection on the bench as he offers cover for the defensive positions
Midfield: Fabio Viera, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard will make up the Arsenal midfield as they focus on dominating the flow of the game at the centre of the park and orchestrate enough chances for the Gunners to win this European game at home. Odegaard will be the main playmaker for the home team in the Zurich half.
Thomas Partey and Granit Xhaka will be rested on the bench as they wait for their chance to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if required.
Attack: Gabriel Martinelli will be eager to put in another productive performance on the left flank while Reiss Nelson hopes to catch the eye on the right wing.
Eddie Nketiah will lead the line for the North London club in the final third. The English striker will have to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Arsenal on his own up top.
Bukayo Saka is a major doubt for this game and is unlikely to be risked in this game. However, Gabriel Jesus will be named on the bench and might come on to influence the game in the final quarter if the Gunners are in need of a goal by then.
