9-changes expected in Arsenal probable line-up against Sporting Lisbon

Arsenal stretch of unbeaten run in all competitions extended on Saturday when their pulsating clash and match of the day decider with Liverpool ended square at 1-1.

The Premier League tie writes in Arsenal as a tough challenger for the title this season.

Riding on the back of that confidence from Saturday encounter, the Arsenal squad will look to go into Thursday Europa League fixture against Sporting Lisbon at home, aiming to extend their unbeaten run even further.

The Gunners sit atop in Group E, striking three out of three games played so far, maintaining 100 percent success.

Emery is keen on keeping that record given the wealth of experience he packs under the hood.

However, he might have to shake things up ahead of the clash. He could roll back the changes made from their clash with Reds last weekend.

A glimpse at Thursday’s Arsenal squad could see former Blues shot-stopper Petr Cech return between the sticks and start in goal.

Veteran defender Stephan Lichtsteiner will be in front of goal, and Rob Holding will be rolled back into the centre-back berth, partnering Shkodran Mustafi.

Spaniard Nacho Monreal is still sidelined with a hamstring injury, an will not be eligible to play.

Matteo Guendouzi will return to the centre of the park alongside the stoutly Lucas Torreira since serving a suspension that saw him sit out in the Liverpool game.

Danny Welbeck, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi will be added also to Emery’s starting XI line-up.
