Arsenal vs FC Koln – UEFA Europa League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Arsenal vs FC Koln – Arsenal hosts FC Koln at the Emirates on 14th September, Thursday in their inaugural UEFA Europa League match of the season.

Arsenal have been drawn in Group E alongside FC Cologne, FC Crvena Zvezda and BATE Borisov. Arsenal are the favorites to win the group and a deep run into the UEFA Europa League will be crucial for Arsene Wenger’s side, for the Frenchman has been under immense pressure after the Gunners made a poor start to the league campaign.

Arsene Wenger is expected to field a relatively weaker lineup, keeping in mind their away trip to Stamford Bridge this Sunday.

Team News

Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin are sidelined through injuries while Jack Wilshere, Alexis Sanchez, and Calum Wilson are yet to regain match fitness.

Marcel Risse and Frederik Sorensen are the likely absentees for the visitors.

Arsenal Possible Starting Lineup: David Ospina, Rob Holding, Per Mertesacker, Skhodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin, Mohamed Elneny, Jack Wilshere, Sead Kolasinac, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud, Alex Iwobi.

FC Koln Possible Starting Lineup: Timo Horn, Lukas Klunter, Dominique Heintz, Jorge Mere, Jonas Hector, Simon Zoller, Matthias Lehmann, Marco Hoger, Leonardo Bittencourt, John Cordoba, Yuya Osako.

“For a striker, it’s always important to score, the statistics are very important, and I keep it in a part of my mind. But the most important thing for me is to win obviously and after that the goals will come. We are very focused on this Europa League, we want to go and win it, we are very ambitious.”

– Olivier Giroud, Arsenal.
