With the North London derby coming on Sunday, followed by a trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday, it was widely expected that Unai Emery would rotate his squad for tomorrow night’s Europa League clash with FC Vorskla.
That’s definitely the case as a host of youngsters and a smattering of experience were on the plane this afternoon.
Despite earlier worries, it does seem as if the game will go ahead in the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv with the Ukrainian side making the 350km journey to the capital by bus this evening.
Rob Holding appears to be the only established central defender in the squad, so we may see him and Mohamed Elneny in there.
Here’s the travelling squad of 20 which will be whittled down to 18 tomorrow, and according to our youth correspondent Jeorge Bird Zech Medley is ineligible anyway.
