How Arsenal could line up against PSV Eindhoven

How Arsenal could line up against PSV Eindhoven

Arsenal is set for the trip to face Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven as hostility returns in the UEFA Champions League stage.

Arsenal may have qualified finishing top of their group B but with the 1-0 loss to Aston Villa, they would be keen to secure the win away in Holland.

Jurrien Timber (knee injury), Thomas Partey (thigh issue), Takehiro Tomiyasu (calf problem) and Fabio Vieira (groin injury) will be unavailable and may not get to file out for Arsenal until at a point next year (2024).

Youngsters like Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli could miss out on this match due to a foot problem and illness respectively.

Emile Smith Rowe returned faster than expected to training on Monday following his knee problem, and he's already on the plan for the match against PSV Eindhoven.

Aaron Ramsdale is expected to remain on the bench with David Raya expected to feature between the sticks for Arsenal.

Arsenal's trio of Ben White, William Saliba and Oleksandr Zinchenko will alternate their roles at the back line but Gabriel Magalhaes should be rested, meaning Jakub Kiwior could feature in the defence for Arsenal.

Jorginho is pressing for a start in midfield alongside Declan Rice and Playmaker Martin Odegaard. And this could see Kai Havertz drop out of the team despite his rich vein of form at the moment.

Arsenal fans would be pleased to see Saka and Martinelli get a rest in this match, especially with the injury they've coped with in recent games.

And Arteta should find a way to this with the trio of Reiss Nelson, Belgium's Leandro Trossard and Eddie Nketiah available to lead the front three for Arsenal.

Arsenal's possible starting lineup against PSV in a 4-3-3 formation dynamics is seen below:

David Raya; Ben White, William Saliba, Jakub Kiwior, Oleksandr Zinchenko; Martin Odegaard, Jorginho, Declan Rice; Reiss Nelson, Eddie Nketiah, Leandro Trossard.
