Arsenal would return to European action tomorrow, as they play Sporting CP by 6:45 pm away in Lisbon. The gunners who are flying high in the premier league are looking to carry their form into the Europa league, as they are targeting doing the double this season.
Mikel Arteta lost three key players to injury this week, and he’d have to sort out the lineup for tomorrow’s game that would give him an advantage in Lisbon, while also considering the premier league game this weekend against Fulham. This article gives an idea on how Mikel Arteta would lineup tomorrow.
Mikel is seriously trying to win this trophy, and I do not see him fielding a weak side now that the fixture is in it’s knockout phase.
I predict he would play the same starting eleven as he did last weekend against Bournemouth, and would try to kill the game in the first half so he can easily rotate and bring in five substitutes to finish the job against Sporting CP.
