Confirmed teams: Arsenal vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Xhaka and Aubameyang start

By on November 28, 2019

Unai Emery is under huge pressure to get Arsenal back to winning ways when we welcome Eintracht Frankfurt to the Emirates this evening.

Emery has rotated his team from the side that drew 2-2 with Southampton at the weekend with Granit Xhaka making his first appearance since his bust-up with the fans last month.

Emi Martinez comes in between the sticks while Shkodran Mustafi joins Sokratis and David Luiz in the back three. Sead Kolasinac misses out with a hamstring injury so Kieran Tierney keeps his place while Calum Chambers starts on the right.

Surprisingly, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the line up front with Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka supporting him in the Arsenal front three.

Here are the teams:


Martinez, Mustafi, Sokratis, David Luiz; Chambers, Xhaka, Willock, Tierney; Martinelli, Saka; Aubameyang.

Subs: Leno, Lacazette, Ozil, Torreira, Pepe, Nelson, Guendouzi

Eintracht Frankfurt

Ronnow; Abraham, Hasebe, Hinteregger; Da Costa, Kamada, Fernandes, Sow, Kostic; Paciencia, Andre Silva

Subs: Zimmermann, N’Dicka, Joveljic, Gacinovic, Toure, Chandler, Kohr
