Arsenal will travel to Ukraine to take on Vorskla in the UEFA Europa League after sealing a hard-fought 2-1 win against Bournemouth last weekend. The Gunners have already qualified from their group and will now have the opportunity to seal a passage through as the group-winners if they can come away with maximum points from this upcoming clash at the Oleksiy Butovsky Vorskla Stadium.

Unai Emery should choose to go for a 4-2-3-1 formation once again and might make a whole host of changes to his side for this European encounter.

4-2-3-1 Arsenal Predicted Lineup To Face Vorskla


Petr Cech might make a rare appearance in goal for the Gunners on Thursday night as Emery is expected to rest Bernd Leno, who has performed well after being promoted to the Arsenal first-team in recent weeks.

The central defensive duo of Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Rob Holding might line up ahead of Cech for this upcoming European match away at Vorskla. Carl Jenkinson could be asked to fill in at left-back as he looks to impress Emery with a solid performance away at Ukraine. Arsenal youngster, Julio Pleguezuelo could finally get a chance to feature for the senior side as a right-back.

It is quite likely that the Gunners boss will go with an entirely new look defence, but that shouldn’t stop the visitors from keeping the Vorskla attackers at bay in midweek.


Emery might opt to go for the midfield duo of Joe Willock and Mattéo Guendouzi who would both be responsible for protecting the Arsenal backline while also provide adequate support to the front players.

The promising trio of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Emile Smith Rowe and Aaron Ramsey might start ahead of them as part of the Gunners attack. Both Maitland-Niles and Smith Rowe have incredible potential so they could have a rare chance to showcase their worth at a big stage when they lace up to face Vorskla on Thursday.


Eddie Nketiah might play as the lone striker up top for the away team. The English starlet is expected to spearhead the Arsenal attack as Emery hands both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette a well-deserved rest.
