Charlie Nicholas is expecting goals when Arsenal play Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League this evening, with the youngsters taking centre stage as Unai Emery shuffles the pack.
With unrest over the Spaniard’s future, there is expected to be a record low attendance at the Emirates this evening, with some fans likely to make their feelings known about the manager. Even so, Nicholas predicts an exciting game for those turning up to watch the match:
“Arsenal will win, but only by the enthusiasm of the youngsters. Martinelli has a great thing going for him so I think he will shine. As usual, there will be goals.”
The Sky Sports pundit has gone for a 3-2 win to the Gunners and considering they have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four home games, the prediction could well be spot on.
Emery will probably take a victory no matter how it comes with the pressure he is currently under. Arsenal’s young players will certainly do their best to impress again, and it will also give Nicolas Pepe another chance to get into some kind of form.
