Confirmed Arsenal line-up vs FK Qarabag: Emery benches the big names
Arsenal will be aiming to make it two wins from two in the Europa League at the end of this game against FK Qarabag. The Gunners are in good form going into this game and have won every match of theirs since losing to Manchester City and Chelsea in the first two weeks.
Unai Emery’s men are now playing a confident and expansive style of football that seems to be paying dividends for the team at both ends of the pitch.
Qarabag were unable to pick up a win in their last European fixture against Sporting Lisbon.
The Azerbaijani outfit are not in the best of forms going into this game and Unai Emery will be hoping to go into the international break on a positive note. Qarabag have never faced the Gunners before, though they have come up against English opposition before on 4 occasions, losing all of those games, with an aggregate scoreline of 14-1.
The club have also lost each of their three last games in the Europa League, their worst ever run in the competition, while the Gunners have lost just one of their last 15 group stage games in European competitions.
This will definitely prove to be an easier paper on fixture for Unai Emery’s men, who should be going straight for the jugular.
