ARS Vs RPD Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Arsenal once again turn to the competition to try and stabilise a sinking ship.
Completing devoid of any kind of wind in their sails in the Premier League, for Arsenal, the Europa League has become a means to try and escape their debacles in England. After faltering every week in the Premier League, the side has taken comfort in routing clubs way inferior to them in the Europa League.
Today’s story is the same with side making a foray into the outing against Rapid Vienna having been defeated 2-1 by Wolverhampton. The defeat which left Arsenal sitting in 14th place saw embers of Arteta running out of time at the club be ignited for the first time with the defeat seeing Arsenal endure their worst ever start to a season.
And as has become the norm for the side, the club will look to try and silence those noises with a win in the Europa League. This competition has gone according to plan for the club with the side finding itself sitting atop of Group B with the four wins on the spin.

Paul Gartler from Rapid Vienna will find a place in our framework as the goal-keeper for today’s clash. The shot stopper was responsible for the side’s last couple of wins with his knowhow seeing him stave off a bevy of shots.
The group’s staunchest defence, arsenal have done justice to their reputation with the side being extremely frugal at the back. The club has let in a meagre two goals past it in four encounters, a period which has seen the side pull off two cleansheets.
Another cleansheet could easily be on the cards for the side to see us opt for the club’s entire backline. All of Shkodran Mustafi, Rob Holding, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Cedric Soares find a place from the club.
Despite his languid displays in the competition, the sorry nature of the defences he’s come up against has seen Nicolas Pepe pull off the three goals and two assists. He alongside Joe Willock who has the two goals and three assists have been responsible for Arsenal’s four wins in succession.
The opposition meanwhile will see us opt for their leading creator. Thorsten Schick’s ability to work his way past tight spaces has seen him help himself to two assists.
Christoph Knasmullner who has the one goal in his kitty will complete the partnership from the club.
The visiting side will also see top scorer with the two goals, Ercan Kara be snagged by us while Riess Nelson is our pick from the home side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Willock’s five goal contributions see him be our captain while Pepe is the vice-captain.
Gartler, Ainsley, Soares, Mustafi, Holding, Pepe, Willock, Schick, Christoph, Nelson, Kara
