Nketiah, Macey and Ceballos start: 4-3-3 Predicted team vs Bournemouth
The Gunners will be looking to secure a spot in the fifth round of the FA Cup when they make their trip to the Vitality stadium to face Bournemouth on Monday evening.
Emi Martinez has not been truly convincing in most of the Europa League and Carabao Cup games this season and it is about time someone else got their chance between the sticks.
Thus, Matt Macey should start while the likes of Maitland-Niles and Sokratis take their spots back in the team ahead of David Luiz and Hector Bellerin (who does need a rest) respectively.
Despite his blunder on Tuesday, Shkodran Mustafi should keep his place and so should Bukayo Saka, due to the lack of options at left-back.
Matteo Guendouzi should get a start in midfield after his brilliant cameo at Stamford Bridge, while Dani Ceballos deserves a chance to impress after his return from injury.
In the attack, this should be the game that we get to see Eddie Nketiah fully back in the side as Alexandre Lacazette receives the rest that he probably needs.
Maitland-Niles – Sokratis – Mustafi – Saka
Xhaka – Guendouzi – Ceballos
Pepe – Nketiah – Martinelli
