Welcome to 08-03-2020 Arsenal News Live

Arsenal was able to make it through to the Europa round of 16 but by narrow escape.

Arsenal now have the same fortune against a team they’ve been unlucky against before, Olympiacos. Arteta will need to make use of his strongest possible XI.

Europa Round of 16

Bernd Leno began both matches against Benfica and will definitely not lose his place in the starting lineup. He has been in good form lately.

There is possibility that Ryan his backup might begin in this game only if Arteta is ready to take the risk. I guess Leno will begin in the first leg.

One consistent feature for Arteta is his back four. This system may look shaky at times, but I believe his persistence will pay off.

There might be a slight change from the last match, with Hector Ballerin to replace Calum Chambers. Pablo Mari, Kieran Tierney and David Luis will begin the match. This will give Arsenal plenty of attacking flair and a strong foundation in the middle of defence.

Martin Odegaard has been in good state lately, Arteta will go with Dani Ceballos in the midfield. He will act as the anchor between midfield and attack.

In the heart of midfield, we should expect another change with Granit Xhaka given a break. He looked shaky against Burnley and he will be needed for the game against Tottenham, so he deserves some rest. So Mohamed Elneny will start alongside Thomas Partey instead.

Aubameyang was the only Arsenal scorer as they played against Burnley during them weekend, so he would definitely start in this match. Aubameyang will be hungry for goals given what happened last season.

Bukayo Saka and Nicolas Pepe are also in good form of recent. The front three Auba, Saka and Pepe tends to thrive for goals.
