Arsenal team news

A much changed Arsenal side run out tonight to face FC Vorskla in the Europa League. Unai Emery has rung the changes like Quasimodo rang the bells, but let’s hope his hunch is right and this team can do the business.

Here are tonight’s official line-ups.

FC Vorskla: Shust, Perduta, Skliar, Kulach, Sharpar, Chesnakov, Sapai, Kolomoets, Dallku, Artur, Reebok

Subs: Tkachenko, Seriichuk, Mysyk, Careca, Chyzhov, Saki, Kane

Arsenal: Cech, Lichtsteiner, Jenkinson, Holding, Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Ramsey, Elneny, Willock, Smith Rowe, Nketiah

Subs: Martinez, Mkhitaryan, Gilmour, Osei-Tutu, Medley, John-Jules, Saka

Bit worried they have Kane to bring off the bench if needed.

That’s not Harry Kane, that’s Undertaker’s half-brother

I’m more worried about their striker, Reebok.

I would have preferred Vorskla to start Kane – then he might be knackered for Sunday.

1. Nektiah?
2. They have a bloke named Reebok?
3. COYG!

He should be busy angling for a big-money move to the Reebok stadium

I dare say Jenks at right-back and Lichsteiner in the middle…

Pretty close to expected though worried a bit about Carl.

Oppo not v strong so should be able to win, especially with Eddie scoring at will.

Loving this line up, really excited to see Eddie over 90mins.

not a bad team, apart from one or two

At this rate, we might as well start Necktie as the lone striker

Or 3 at the back (Lichtsteiner, holding and elneny) with jenks and AMN at wing back?

If Jenks is indeed starting as CB then this may be the rebirth of that particular gooner fan’s playing career!

Could work on the right side of a three. May know better than Mustafi not to dive in all the time.

glad to see elneny and maitland-niles picking up some minutes. always excited when smith-rowe starts. hope holding gets substituted early to make sure he will be fit on sunday. eddie to score at least twice, just to lower the expectation. COYG!

I was going to miss this game but Jenkinson at cb is something I’ve got to see!

When he first arrived I did think his best position would end up being centre back actually…

Looking forward to Nketiah too

excited to see maitland niles , but dissapointing if he is starting at right back. i really wanted to see him play in midfield. but still eager to see nketia smith rowe and willock three of our best younsters right now in our academy. i suspect that otsi tutu will also come as a sub to add thrust in the second half

Much more experienced than I thought it would be, but hope the fact that Holding is starting won’t rule him out for the weekend as I would take him over either Sokratis or Mustafi any day. Ramsey is probably feeling he can’t get the hell out of Arsenal fast enough getting his only starts in the Europa games.

Maybe he will be inclined to leave in January for some money and actual playing time, be good for us too

No Elneny? I feel for him. He will probably go in January

He started?

Any stattos out there confirm if this is the highest total of squad numbers we’ve ever put out? 577 by my reckoning despite a few single figures.

So I commented on a previous article that AMN should start in place of Mhyki…I was wrong. It should totally be ESR

Now I’ve seen it all, Jenkinson at Cback.

Thought Emery may have cycled one fo the fullbacks to the middle. Thought it might be the experienced Lichsteiner.

In any case, Volskra tried their best to make Jenko look good.
