Players to watch out for

Alex Iwobi

The academy graduate currently has 13 appearances and 1 goal and 2 assists is breaking into Emery’s starting 11 due to his work rate and his mentality which he is bringing to the pitch.

Last weekend he came of the bench and assisted Lacazzette in a crucial fixture against Liverpool to clinch a point at the Emirates if he can do that in big games could this be start of something special for the 22 year old?


Luis Nani

Former Manchester United winger is currently Sportings top Scorer with 5 goals in the league but is yet to score in the Europa League yet.

In one of his previous visits to the Emirates he managed to score an outstanding goal again the side years ago today he returns to question Arsenals defence again.


Pierre Aubameyang

The former Borussia Dortmund striker is in great form with 10 goals and assists in 14 games for Arsenal as he has come of the bench and started to produce goals for the club.

His movement and finishing has been the cause of his great form this season and partnership with Lacazette has led them into having a great start this season so far.

I can See Sporting giving it a fight but Arsenal finish the game 3-1 this is all due to the attacking force that the gunners have and the dynamic and postioning players dictate themselves on the pitch. Arsenals defence may be unstable at times but the motion of their attack is by far an issue for opposition defenders.

Tell me how you see this game planning out.
