Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction vs Rennes (UEFA Europa League)



Arsenal FC really have their backs against the wall this week as they host Rennes in the second leg of their round of 16 tie down 3-1 on aggregate from last week. The Gunners recovered nicely to hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first Premier League loss as Manchester United caretaker manager.

Arsenal are one of four teams fighting it out for the last two top four slots in the Premier League, so if that doesn’t get work out, they can still get back into Europe via the UEL route, but that’s not looking too good right now. Let’s predict who Unai Emery might select in his first team, in his bid to keep the Gunners alive.

  3. Tonny othieno says

    With that lineup especially in defense. Expect a loss. If you saw the lineup against man u, unless there’s injury, or madness, i don’t expect a change other than socratis who’s not legible

  4. nikewatson says

    your joking right if he changes from the game at man u then he needs to go
