Champions League time again and this time our first ever game against FC Basel and Granit Xhaka’s brother.
With Taulant guaranteed to start for our opponents, Wenger was as clear as he’s ever going to be before an official announcement that Granit would be starting. Of course, with Francis Coquelin’s injury ruling him out (but thankfully for only three weeks), Wenger’s options were narrowed, but he still could have went for Mohamed Elneny against his old side.
I’m not sure if we will see Iwobi again in this game or if the boss will turn to Lucas, but I’ve opted for the latter and those are really the only changes I see from the side that thumped Chelsea on Saturday.
But, you know, Arsene and his lineups are the most unpredictable thing in modern football these days.
