AVL Vs ARS Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Depleted Arsenal face a tricky challenge today.
Unbeaten in the league for almost two months, when Arsenal came across a laggard Wolverhampton unit, many touted them to keep that unblemished run intact.
However, shoddy and botched refereeing ended up seeing the club down a river. Luiz was dished out a red card for a challenge which was never worthy of such severe punishment, a decision which ended up turning the tie on its head.
With Leno subsequently losing his head to get his marching orders as well, nine men Arsenal ended up stumbling to a 2-1 defeat on the day.

Up against his previous employers, Emiliano Martinez will be extremely eager to remind Arsenal of their mistake to let go off him.
They ended up shipping three goals the last time around but apart from that, both Matt Targett and Matthew Cash have been impeccable for their side. The two have not only kept attacking threats at bay but have more importantly provided width to the side’s attacking plays as well.
Arsenal will also see us repose faith in a duo. Its one comprising of Cedric Soares and Rob Holding, two players who have closed the ball with ease to nullify attacking plays.
His assist against West Ham now sees Jack Grealish with the 6 goals and 10 assists, numbers which make him an instant pick for today.
Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka was unfortunate to see his thunderous strike be ruled out the last time around but it was one which emoted towards his expansive expertise. Granit Xhaka and his ability to disrupt attacking plays see him partner Saka up.
Moving to 9 goals as he struck for his club the last time around, the team’s leading scorer, striker Ollie Watkins completes the set of picks from his team.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang is set to return to the side’s playing 11 after missing out across the last couple of weeks. He’s going to link up with the side’s top scorer with the eight goals, Alexandre Lacazette.
