Arsenal will look to build on Monday’s win over West Ham as they travel to take on Standard Liege in the Europa League on Thursday.
The win over the Hammers brought to an end their woeful run of nine matches without a win.
Here, 90min takes you through the starting XI that Ljungberg should pick for their final group game in the competition…
Goalkeeper & Defenders
Emiliano Martinez (GK) – Martinez is expected to keep his place in the side, having featured in all five of the Gunners’ Europa League group stage games this season. The shot-stopper has conceded five goals in his last three games in the competition and will be keen to pick up a clean sheet on Thursday.
Calum Chambers (RB) – Chambers played at centre-back for the win over West Ham on Monday and while he put in an assured display, he is expected to shift out to the right side of defence for the upcoming game with Hector Bellerin ruled out.
Sokratis (CB) – With Shkodran Mustafi suspended for the upcoming clash and Rob Holding ruled out through injury, Sokratis is expected to retain his place in the side, despite playing the full 90 minutes against the Hammers.
David Luiz (CB) – Luiz sat and watched on from the bench for the team’s last game, but will return to partner Sokratis in the heart of the defence on Thursday. Ljungberg will be hoping the centre-back can dictate the game with his range of passing and ability to step up with the ball, while he will also be keen to see an error-free performances. Over to you, David…
Sead Kolasinac (LB) – More injury problems. Kieran Tierney has been ruled out for the tussle with Standard after he dislocated his right shoulder during the last match. As a result, Kolasinac will come into the side. With Tierney set for another spell on the sidelines, this is an opportunity to impress and reclaim the starting berth.
Matteo Guendouzi (CM) – The youngster has a tremendous amount of potential, but he still has a lot of learning to do. The Frenchman works tirelessly for the team and despite Arsenal’s obvious struggles this season, Guendouzi has continued to shine with his tenacity and desire.
Lucas Torreira (CM) – Granit Xhaka is out of the upcoming match with concussion, while the game may come too soon for Dani Ceballos, as well. As a result, Torreira will keep his place in the team and following an impressive showing against West Ham, he will be hoping to back this up with another as he looks to cement his place in the side. He has an excellent awareness of the game and he has the ability to offer a considerable amount both defensively and offensively.
Bukayo Saka (LW) – Another prospect that has taken his opportunities is Saka. His agility and speed make him a nightmare to defend against and yet, he still has plenty of room for improvement. A bright future.
