Confirmed teams: Arsenal vs Standard Liege: Bellerin starts, no Ozil again

By on October 3, 2019


Arsenal continue their Europa League campaign when we take on Standard Liege at the Emirates this evening.

Hector Bellerin makes his first senior start of the new season as he comes in at right-back tonight. Kieran Tierney also gets another run out at left-back as they continue to build on their match fitness.

Rob Holding and Shkodran Mustafi start in the middle of the back four while it looks as though Ainsley Maitland-Niles is playing further forward for Arsenal tonight as he joins Dani Ceballos and Riess Nelson in the attack.

Mesut Ozil isn’t even named on the subs bench in another slap in the face from Emery. Gabriel Martinelli leads the line up front with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang dropping to the bench along with Nicolas Pepe.

These are the line-ups:


Martinez; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Tierney; Torreira, Willock; Maitland-Niles, Ceballos, Nelson; Martinelli

Subs: Leno, Chambers, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Xhaka, Aubameyang, Pepe

Standard Liege

Milinkovic-Savic; Vojvoda, Vanheusden, Laifis, Gavory; Mpoku, Bastien, Boljevic, Cimirot, Lestienne; Emond.

Subs: Bodart, Goreux, Lavalee, Carcela, Amallah, Fai, Avenatti
