Blackstenius and Russo start together for Arsenal away at Manchester United away

Jonas Eidevall is starting Alessia Russo and Stina Blackstenius upfront together in what looks like it will be a 352 formation away at Manchester United. Sabrina D’Angelo starts in goal ahead of Manu Zinsberger.

From there, it looks as though Ilestedt, Beattie and Codina will play in a back three with Catley and Maritz as wing backs. Victoria Pelova joins Kim Little and Lia Walti in midfield with Blackstenius and Russo paired upfront.

Manu Zinsberger, Lotte Wubben-Moy, Frida Maanum, Caitlin Foord and Cloe Lacasse all drop to the bench.

14.D’Angelo; 28.Ilestedt, 5.Beattie, 27.Codina; 16.Maritz, 7.Catley; 13.Walti, 10.Little (c), 21.Pelova; 25.Blackstenius, 23.Russo.

Subs: 1.Zinsberger, 3.Wubben-Moy, 12.Maanum, 15.McCabe, 17.Hurtig, 19.Foord, 22.Kuhl, 24.Lacasse, 32.Cooney-Cross.

But I also think that if the *whole team* (more or less) performs poorly, the head coach needs to look at himself as well.

I haven’t been able to watch yet but very happy to see Pelova in the starting lineup and in MF. She’s one of the best creative talents in the squad and would have been great to have in the lineup against Liverpool and any team that sits in. Was becoming concerned Jonas was emphasizing physicality over technical quality and creativity – one of the reasons we have struggled against deep blocks (the other being overall improvement in quality of all teams) vs. in the past. Stina and Alessia together is very exciting as well. Love to see us developing different… Read more »
