    Wouldn't be surprised if Emery ran Aubameyang into the ground and played him today.

    My guess:

    Martinez
    Chambers Holding Luiz Kolasinac
    Willock Torreira
    Pepe Ceballos Smith-Rowe
    Nelson​

    I don't know how to break it to you, but Sevilla, Roma, Porto, PSV, Lazio are some of the teams in there.

    Good luck to Wolves, though.

    Frankfurt having chances for fun. Arsenal need to get it together.

    Another garbage set-up form Emery. Our best ball winner is pushing high up the pitch instead of mopping up attacks and protecting the defence and our only consistent attacking outlet is hoofing it up to Aubameyang. It's dead football.

    Good example of Willock's engine there. As soon as the counter was on, he was running ahead of Saka there.

    I think he's quite similar to Ramsey.

    Arsenal's counter attacks have been decent and it was about time one led to a goal.

    Frankfurt look like scoring but Arsenal can just keep trying to pick them off on the break because they keep getting them 2 v 2/3 v 2 etc.

    John Hartson gets a stiffy on when Arsenal push up when clearing a corner :laugh:

    Yeah. It is going to take a bit of game management and absorbing pressure. So far the saves Martinez has made you would expect him to make.

    Frankfurt never lost here last season in the tournament and so their fans will have a sense of expectation. Next goal is pretty big.

    Willock. As the games come and the experience comes, he's going to be a very good option in this squad.

    Willock is an exciting talent.

    Smith-Rowe a little disappointing. Overplaying at times.

    Hopefully Pepe can get a goal. He needs one just to get a few people off his back.

    This game is set for Pepe now. Has to grab a goal, surely?

    And agree on Willock. Has looked decent and from my memory he wasn't too bad at Anfield either.

    Arsenal putting quite a spirited performance to be fair. The goal was fortunate but Martinez pulled off the right saves at the time and Eintracht are now frustrated up front.
    12 minutes away from a famous win in the toughest fixture of the group stage.

    Dominik Kohr sent off as I type this.

    A wonderful goal to sum up a great performance from Saka.

    Hopefully the international manager will stop playing him at ****ing left-back.

    Edit: And an assist to go with it. Albeit against a very tired Frankfurt side.

    Good result for Arsenal, but a worrying number of attempts conceded on goal yet again with 24 shots for Frankfurt. Fortunately for Arsenal no attempt was anything to shout about but Martinez looked assured all game.

    These Europa League group games should be used to blood youngsters though and in that respect it has been a near perfect night for them.

    3-0 win at the Commerzbank is pretty bad ass to be fair.

    Switched over to Celtic game after Arsenal's third. Instant red card for Celtic. Ridiculous refereeing :laugh:
