Mikel Arteta's side were unlucky at Emirates stadium last week after playing a 1-1 draw against Slavia Prague. The lineup above shows the possible way Arteta would set up his players in order to qualify for the semi-final round of Europa league.
Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey occupy the defensive midfield positions while Eddie Smith-Rowe plays the attacking midfield position. Arsenal need a win to qualify or better still a draw. But if the Gunners are to qualify with a draw, they need to score more than a goal in order to get favoured by their home score(1-1).
Slavia Prague is not that easy to play against, they are also doing very well in their league and have also been consistent in their Europa league game. This team beat Leicester city this season in the Europa league. The forwards here are Nicholas pepe, Lacazette and Gabriel Martinelli. Martinelli scored a goal in Arsenal's last match and this could booster his confidence against Slavia prague.
