Arsenal suffered a defeat at the hands of arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend and it seems that that the Gunners will not be able to finish in the top four this season.
The north Londoners can qualify for the Champions League by winning this season’s Europa League and Wenger must take the competition seriously.
On Thursday night, the Gunners will collide against Swedish side Ostersunds in the first leg of their Europa League R32 contest. Who will come out on top?
As far as Wenger’s team news is concerned, we can expect two major changes in the starting squad that played vs Spurs on Saturday.
Record signing Aubameyang is ineligible to play because his former side, Dortmund, are in the same competition. In such a scenario, we can expect French international Alexandre Lacazette to return to the starting team.
The Les Bleus star should start as the lone center forward up front and behind him, Ozil and Mkhitaryan should start in the attack.
On the other hand, Ospina will likely replace Cech to start in the goal for the Gunners. Here is Arsenal’s strongest possible 4-3-3 XI vs Ostersunds.
