Arsenal will collide against AC Milan at the San Siro in the first leg of their Round of 16 Europa League tie tonight. The Rossoneri are in fantastic form at the moment, on the other hand, the Gunners have been really poor.
Arsene Wenger must win the Europa League or else the season will be considered a complete disaster and it will not be shocking to see the French boss get sacked.
As far as the team news is concerned, the major injury setback for the north Londoners is the absence of first choice right back Hector Bellerin.
The Spaniard is suffering from a knee injury and Wenger has confirmed that the defender will not be taking part in tonight’s fixture against Milan (Evening Standard). In this case, we can expect Calum Chambers to start in the right back position. Koscielny, Mustafi and Kolasinac will likely partner the England international in the back line.
Petr Cech has been in disastrous form recently and therefore, Ospina must replace him in the starting lineup. In the center of the park, the likes of Xhaka, Ramsey and Wilshere should start.
As far as the attack is concerned, Aubameyang cannot feature in the Europa League for the Gunners, hence, Welbeck should start as the lone center forward up front and behind him, Ozil and Mkhitaryan should start in the wide offensive positions.
Here is Arsenal’s probable 4-3-3- XI vs AC Milan.
