STL Vs ARS Dream11 Team Standard Liege Vs Arsenal Group F Europa League 2019-20 Dream 11 Team Picks, Probable Playing 11 And Match Report.
The group stages of the Europa League were expected to be a cruise for Arsenal, one the side form London would not only end up progressing from but winning the group with ease as well. And with that narrative is still achievable for the club, things have been far from straightforward for the side with the club currently embroiled in a tricky clamour for making it into the ensuing round of the Europa League.
Managing to win just the three matches in five against clearly inferior opponents, although Arsenal are currently in first place with the 10 points to their name, the club know things can easily unravel for them come today. When they take on third placed Standard Liege, they are going to be squaring off against a side who themselves have aspirations of embarking into the proceeding stage, a set of events which will make this tie an extremely rigorous one for the side from the Premier League.
Also, what adds to Arsenal predicament s the form the club is currently engulfed in, losing matches left, right and centre. They did manage to triumph 3-1 against West Ham in their most recent outing in the Premier League but it was a result born more out of the lacklustre quality of their opponents rather than the side’s own enterprising brand of football.
It’s something this Standard Liege side will be looking to capitalise on along with Arsenal’s atrocious form away from home when the two sides step out for their culminating Group F encounter today. The 1-1 draw they endured to Victoria the last time around was a calamitous result, seeing them unable to erase the deficit which separates them from the top 2 spots, a showing they’ll be looking to address as they try to salvage a win on the day,.

Dream 11 Picks
Although Arsenal have failed to wrench out of their defensive qualms in the Premier League, the club has managed to do reasonably well in the Europa League when it comes to defence. And they have had to massively thank Emiliano Martinez for that with the shot stopper sniffling attacks with ease to see us entrust him for today’s encounter from the side.
The group’s worst defence with the 8 goals leaked in till now in the 8 matches they have contested in, Standard Liege are bound to encounter a slew of shots their way. And with Arsenal also always prone to shambolically collapsing and falling apart in defence, the likelihood of a shutout for either side is extremely low, seeing us opt for just the bare minimum three defenders for the tie.
And we were clear with the kind of players we wanted to divulge in for the day with us selecting players of the attacking persuasion, players capable of galloping their way down the park and pulling off a goal or assist for their side today. It sees us get in Sead Kolasinac from Arsenal for the day whilst from the other side of the facet we have gone in with the flair filled duo of Konstantinos Laifis and Zinho Vanheusden.
He’s clearly gone out of favour in Arsenal’s Premier League soirees but Arsenal’s CDM Lucas Torreira has managed to hammer his place down in their Europa League team. He’s someone who is capable of transitioning the ball from defence to attack and seeing himself heavily involved in the side’s attacking plays to see us imbed him in our side for the day.
He will be accompanied by Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka, someone who has made a real breakthrough into Arsenal’s side this term. From the other side of section meanwhile, we begin with Mehdi Carcela-Gonzalez, someone who has scored once in the tournamnet for his side along with Paul-Jose M’Poku who has managed to get the one goal to his name as well.
Impressing with his outrageous displays in the Europa League, Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli ended up getting his first chance for the side in the Premier League recently, a match where he thrusted his side to a win with a goal in his kitty. He’s a regulation selection for us for this encounter while the other side find representation in the form of Renaud Emond.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Saka comes in to be our side’s captain for this tie while Martinelli will be our vice-captain.
