Arsenal football club is currently preparing to return to action against Portuguese-based club Sporting Lisbon just a few days after the Gunners boosted their hope of winning the premier league title with a crucial win against Fulham.
The Gunners ventured into the game knowing very well that a slip will leave them battling for a trophy with Manchester City, so they tightened their belt as they thrashed Fulham 3-0 in front of their fans in Craven Cottage Stadium.
Sporting Lisbon on the other hand also enjoyed a very impressive display during the weekend as they thrashed Boavista 3-0 to further cement their place in next season’s Champions League.
Mikel Arteta and his men will be keen on avoiding the drama that unfolded in the first leg, knowing fully well that a win will propel them to a place in the quarter-finals.
Apart from winning the premier league, they are also keen on lifting the Europa League title, despite the threatening presence of Manchester United in the competition.
Ahead of the game, we will expect the Arsenal manager to name a very strong and formidable formation that will be capable of nailing the Portuguese giant at the Emirates Stadium.
Ramsdale, Ben White, William Saliba, Gabriel Meghalles, Zinchenko, Partey, Xhaka, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, Martinelli.
