ARS vs FRK Dream11 : Uncertain Arsenal face a tricky away encounter as they begin their life in the newest instalment of the Europa League
Arsenal have underwhelmed, underachieved and unimpressed for far too long now. Despite having shelled out a staggering amount on their attack force, the side are always uneasy when entering matches, embroiled in a fight with the side unable to register wins with conviction over the course of the last year.
Whilst the defensive showings were always callous and abject from the side, the 2019-20 edition of the Premier League has seen the club subjected to lacklustre and despondent attacking showings as well. Their most recent draw against bottom of the table Watford perfectly epitomised that narrative with the side scrambling together a mere 8 shots in reply to Watford’s 31, an ordeal which has seen the side wane and fall down into 7th place.
Elsewhere, the defence has seen no improvements either, with Unai Emery coming under massive flak for his acumen as a manager. Despite the side being bestowed with some horrid names in defence, the despondent displays they have doled out have seen them concede a harrowing 96 shots in 5 matches, the most any side has ever encountered in the same period in the Premier League.
It’s a rhetoric which sees the side head into today’s opening Europa League clash against Eintracht Frankfurt on unsure footing with Frankfurt knowing they are up against an opposition who can be caught out on ample occasions defensively. As Arsenal begin a new campaign in the marquee tournamnet after being decimated by Chelsea in last year’s finals, the flailing are prevelant in abundance as opposed to the strengths, something which will see Frankfurt come hot of the blocks in this one.
ARS vs FRK Match Prediction
This should be a goal scoring feats, one where either side decide to shun their defensive responsibilities and go at loggerheads with each other on the attacking front. It’s this script which tilts the scales in Arsenal’s favour with the side having in their kitty some fine attacking name, layers who are capable of singlehandedly winning the match for their side.
Probable Playing 11
- Both the side are suffering from a spate of injuries with Mijat Gacinovic and Goncalo Paciencia out for this one for the side.
- Elsewhere Arsenal will be without Alexander Lacazette, Rob Holding and Tierney with all out due to injury issues.

Top Goal Scorer
ARS vs FRK Dream11 Goal-Keeper
We are getting Arsenal’s goal-keeper Bernd Leno for this encounter. The only reason they were able to salvage a point from their fixture against Watford was due to some good save from the shot stopper and with the side all set to catapult in defence again, Leno will be asked to pull off another hoard of saves for the outfit in the imminent clash.
ARS vs FRK Dream11 Defenders
We’ll begin with Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles with the fullback capable of registering either a goal of assist for the side. He got one at the weekend as well and with Arsenal’s gameplan seeing the fullbacks heavily involved in their attacking play, being persistently asked to link with the wide attacking players, he will keep cantering his way down the park.
Sead Kolasinac comes in from the side as well while from Eintracht Frankfurt we are opting for both their wingbacks. Playing three at the back, protected by the duo of Danny da Costa and Timothy Chandler allows the two to express themselves freely in the side’s attacking front as well, making them likely to judiciously contribute something in that aspect.
ARS vs FRK Dream11 Midfielders
We’ll begin with Arsenal’s picks first, with us getting in Danni Ceballos and Lucas Torreira from the side for this match. With Ozil out for today’s match, Ceballos is set to take up the CAM role along with corners and freekicks duties, a position which make him coming up with a goal or assist extremely palpable.
From Frankfurt we have gone in with the two players as well, getting in Daichi Kamada and Djibril Sow. It’s a seamless blend of the attacking minded and defensively inclined players, two names who’ll be pivotal to their side’s quissential agenda of coming out with a win today.
ARS vs FRK Dream11 Strikers
With both the side’s missing out on crucial players in the attacking component, the onus on our picks from both the sides increases in magnitude. We are selecting Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with him getting two goals against Watford in their bygone clash while from the opposition we have gone in with Andre Silva in the absence of Goncalo Paciencia.
ARS vs FRK Dream11 Captain And Vice-Captain
Aubameyang is selected as our captain for this prevelant encounter while Ceballos is the vice-captain.
