With Arsenal in such menacing touch in the attacking side of the game at the moment, this is going to be a tie where they plunder and paper Pepe Reina’s goal with a string of shots. The Aston Villa goal-keeper is going to be overworked but he showed what he’s capable of in such circumstance against Chelsea to see us roll him in our team.
Arsenal’s newly deployed 3-5-2 formation under the tutelage of Arteta has brought consummate success to the club. The defence has taken on a completely new look under the revised formation, one which has bolstered Arsenal’s backline with the wingbacks providing the three CBs with unstinted support.
After limiting Liverpool to the one goal and City to none, it was only prudent of us to repose faith in a trio of picks from Arsenal for this one. We begin with Kieran Tierney with the new signing being a quiessential reason for the side’s new found resurgence in defence with the player taking to his right wingback role like a fish takes to water.
Cedric Soares has been equally influential in a short span of time to see him join up with Tierney with CB Rob Holding wrapping up our three man docket from the visiting team.
The five assists for Bukayo Saka speak about the kind of headway he’s made at the club this season. One of the brightest prospects in English football, the player has made a name for himself with tenacious and imperious performances, one which make him a must have pick for the encounter.
Riess Nelson comes in as well after he pounced on Alisson’s mistake to score his side’s second goal against Liverpool. The opposition will meanwhile see us opt for their top scorer Jack Grealish who has the 7 goals and 6 assists with Conor Hourihane with the 5 assists coming in to link up with him.
Having scored twice against City, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang once again showed why he’s so pivotal to this Arsenal side. In with a fair shout of winning the Golden Boot with him currently being on 20 goals, we envision him being in the side’s playing 11 for this one to see him become a must have pick.
Alexandre Lacazette has now scored in two matches on the bounce after enduring a lengthy drought between the sticks, goals which make him our second pick while the opposition will be represented by five goal man Trezeguet.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Arsenal’s top scorer, Aubameyang was the only right choice as the day’s captain while Lacazette is the vice-captain.
