Arsenal have had another dismal campaign in the Premier League and they are currently languishing in the 10th spot on the table with only one-third of the season left.
With an 11-point gap to fourth-placed West Ham United, they appear unlikely to qualify for the Champions League unless they make a tremendous turnaround in the final 13 games.
Hence, their chances of returning to the elite European competition may entirely depend on whether they can go on to win the Europa League title this term.
The Gunners have a number of European-based players in their squad and we look into few of them who are expected to feature for their respective countries at Euro 2020. If you are looking to bet on this year’s summer tournament, you can use this Bet365 bonus for Euro 2021 to help you get started. The tournament is also going to be a fun exercise in scouting new possible talent for Arsenal.
Granit Xhaka – Switzerland:
The Swiss midfielder has divided among the Gunners fans due to his performances as well as ill-discipline but he continues to remain a regular at the heart of the midfield under manager Mikel Arteta. He is also the captain of the Swiss national team and will be a definite starter for them at the European Championships.
Bukayo Saka – England:
The 19-year-old has quickly emerged as one of the best attacking players within the Gunners ranks. Quite often he has been the difference-maker in the final third of the pitch and this has definitely caught the eye of Three Lions Gareth Southgate, who has handed him four caps. He could be the sole English representative at the Euros from the north London side.
Kieran Tierney – Scotland:
The left-back will be playing at his first major tournament. He has been one of the better performing players for the Gunners this term and has particularly impressed with his regular overlapping runs and ability to lay early crosses into the box. However, his job may be different with Scotland. He may feature on the left side of a back three with captain Andrew Robertson likely to take up the left wing-back position.
Hector Bellerin – Spain:
The Spaniard does get criticism from the fans for the defensive side of his game but going forward, he has been pretty good for the Gunners this term. Sergi Roberto and Dani Carvajal are the regular picks for La Roja but both are injured at the moment. Roberto has yet to overcome a nagging muscle problem while Carvajal has suffered a fresh hamstring injury. This could open up a spot for Bellerin. Spain are always a good team to follow If you are going to watch the Euros live online (or attend games if limited fans are allowed), and these Euros should be no different.
Bernd Leno – Germany:
Leno has been one of the standout performers for the Gunners and he has been largely consistent with the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers where he was sent off probably being the exception. He has been the regular deputy to Marc-Andre ter Stegen and is likely to be on the bench again at Euro 2020.
