Arsenal’s Predicted 4-2-3-1 Line-up Against Chelsea Today – See Formation
Today, Sunday, August 1, 2021, Arsenal will play Chelsea in a pre-season friendly. The game is part of The Mind Series, which promotes greater mental wellness. The mini-tournament also includes Tottenham Hotspur. On August 4 and 8, they will face Chelsea and Arsenal, respectively.
Stats gathered from Transfermarkt show that the predicted formation for the Arsenal team is 4-2-3-1.
Line-up Predicted: In midweek, Bernd Leno made his pre-season debut against Watford. For the London derby, the German is expected to start in goal. At the end of the previous season, Calum Chambers surpassed Hector Bellerin in the pecking order for the right-back position.
With Kieran Tierney beginning at the other end, he is expected to receive the start. Since his arrival, Ben White has only had one training session.
The center-involvement back’s could be limited to a cameo appearance. As long as Gabriel Magalhaes is out, Pablo Mari is expected to partner Rob Holding in central defense.
Granit Xhaka’s future has been a hot topic this season, however, it has now been revealed that he may be offered a new contract.
Xhaka, like White, has just arrived for training. In midfield, spectators should see Albert Sambi Lokonga alongside Thomas Partey for the first time.
Saka has been given a long break following his Euro 2020 exploits. Nicolas Pepe is expected to fill in on the right-wing in his absence.
Smith, Emile Rowe appears to be a lock to start at number 10, with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the opposite flank.
Alexandre Lacazette’s future is still up in the air since his contract is up in 11 months. He has continued to participate in pre-season activities.
With 17 goals last season, the Frenchman was the club’s highest scorer. He looks like he’ll be in front of Eddie Nketiah and Folarin Balogun in the line-up.
