Mavropanos and Macey start, Xhaka’s back! 3-4-3 Predicted Arsenal XI vs Frankfurt
The Gunners will be looking to finish their Europa League group stage campaign on a high when they welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Emirates stadium on Thursday evening.
Arsenal fell to a 2-0 loss to Leicester City prior to the international break and when the action resumed last weekend, it was another disappointing result for the Gunners as they could only draw 2-2 with Southampton at home.
With Arsenal very far behind Chelsea and Leicester City in the race for a top four finish in the Premier League, winning the Europa League might be the club’s only route to the Champions League next season.
On Thursday night, Unai Emery’s side will have a good opportunity to wrap up top spot in their group and qualification for next stage of the competition.
Despite their troubles, the Gunners are yet to lose in Europe this season and perhaps for that unbeaten streak to continue, the team will need to be freshened up.
Mavropanos – Mustafi – Holding
Maitland-Niles – Xhaka – Willock – Tierney
Pepe – Lacazette – Martinelli
