What is up Gooner Nation! Here is the latest on team news ahead of the Champions League match against Basel. The news gathered from Arsene Wenger’s presser earlier today (Video to follow) is very positive.
Only one injury from this past weekends thrilling victory over Chelsea. Francis Coquelin is definitely out for tomorrow’s clash and it looks like it will be about three weeks for him. AW stated that the scans were positive though.
Aside from Le Coq’s injury, Olivier Giroud is out as well as he is suspended because of his red card and sending off during the PSG match. So it should be a similar line up as the Chelsea match.
With Le Coq being ruled out, it could mean that we could see a Brother vs Brother match in Granit Xhaka vs Taulant Xhaka. Which should create some extra buzz for the Granit.
So with that being said our predicted line up goes as follows:
Not to much change because if its working why change it unless forced. Unfortunately there is a forced change in midfield as Le Coq is injured so we slot Xhaka in there. The other change we see is probably Ospina also starting, as he had an amazing match against PSG. What do you all think of this line up? Let us know.
