Arsenal will welcome PSV Eindhoven at the Emirates Stadium this Thursday night as they try to secure a good result at home in the UEFA Europa League. The Gunners managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 win over FC Zurich last week which will give them some momentum ahead of this game.
Mikel Arteta will probably set his side up in a 4-3-3 formation and could be inclined to keep changes to a minimum for this European clash at home. Thus, Eddie Nketiah will once again get a chance to impress as a centre-forward up top.
4-3-3 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face PSV Eindhoven
Matt Turner will probably receive another opportunity to impress as Arsenal’s primary keeper. Gabriel will resume his centre-half partnership with Rob Holding at the centre of the Gunners’ defence as they hope to keep things solid at the back throughout the 90 minutes.
Takehiro Tomiyasu will try to give a good account of himself at right-back while Kieran Tierney looks to catch the eye on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the freedom to express themselves in the opponent’s half as they look to offer decent support to the front players.
Ben White will offer cover for the defensive spots on Arteta’s bench.
Arteta could choose to go with the same midfield that started in the win over Zurich last week. Hence, we can expect to see Granit Xhaka, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Fabio Viera anchor the midfield for the Gunners this Thursday night.
Martin Odegaard will have to be content with a spot on the bench but could come on to put his footprint in the game if Arteta decides to call upon his services. However, Thomas Partey is still out for the London club with a thigh injury.
Gabriel Martinelli will focus on putting his pace to good use on the left flank. Marquinhos put in an excellent display versus Zurich, so he is expected to retain his place on the right flank.
Eddie Nketiah will lead the line for the North London giants on the attacking third of the pitch. The English striker would have to carry most of the goal-scoring burden for his side on his own up top.
Gabriel Jesus will be named on the Arsenal bench as he waits for his opportunity to catch the eye in the latter stages of the contest if required.
