Holding, Chambers And Nelson To Start: Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Frankfurt

Arsenal manager Unai Emery is likely to ring the changes against Eintracht Frankfurt, and we could see a rather young starting line up from the Gunners boss this evening.

In defence, Rob Holding is poised to make his comeback after building up his fitness with the Under 23s. He could be partnered by Calum Chambers who has not featured since the opening game of the season against Newcastle.

With Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney having not travelled to Germany, Emery will probably stick with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Sead Kolasinac as his fullbacks.

Joe Willock is likely to come into the side, along with Lucas Torreira, in midfield and it will be interesting to see if Emery opts to start Dani Ceballos or go with a more defensive-minded player like Granit Xhaka or Matteo Guendouzi.

Arsenal fans will be keen to see Nicolas Pepe get off the mark in a Gunners shirt, and the Ivorian could be selected upfront alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Reiss Nelson is the favourite to start in Mesut Ozil’s absence.

Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Play Eintracht Frankfurt:

Leno, Maitland-Niles, Chambers, Holding, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Torreira, Willock, Pepe, Aubameyang, Nelson
