‘Damn’, ‘not the answer’: Some Arsenal fans react to Arteta decision in starting XI for tonight’s game

Arsenal’s Premier League form may be up and down at present, but in the Europa League, the Gunners have been impressive to say the least.

Mikel Arteta’s charges have taken maximum points from their first three games and could seal qualification to the next round come the end of this evening’s games.

Arsenal face Molde in Norway tonight and will qualify for the last 32 of the Europa League if they better Rapid Vienna’s result against Dundalk.

Arteta tends to switch things around for Thursday night games and tonight is no different.

Alex Runarsson replaces Bernd Leno in goal, with a back four of Cedric Soares, David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi and Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

It looks as though Arteta has gone with a 4-4-2, with a midfield quartet of Nicolas Pepe, Granit Xhaka, Joe Willock and Reiss Nelson.

Alexandre Lacazette, who captains the team this evening, and Eddie Nketiah complete the XI, while the bench features several youngsters including Miguel Azeez and Ben Cottrell.
