Arsene Wenger has sensationally announced that forgotten man Mathieu Debuchy will start our game in Serbia this evening as we prepare to face our toughest test so far in the Europa League.
Debuchy hasn’t played for almost a year since he hobbled out of his comeback against Swansea City in November 2016, but will replace Bellerin at right back, the Spaniard rested ahead of our game at Everton on Sunday.
Wenger said in yesterday’s press conference via the football.london that:
“He has not played for a long time because every time he was close to coming back he was injured again. He will certainly start tomorrow…”
Theo Walcott will probably start as well after being left on the bench for all of our Premier League games so far, notching three goals in the three games he has started but generally struggling to find any sort of form this season.
The side will no doubt be the usual blend of experience and youth as we look to continue our good European form (outside of England that is).
Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles could feature having all missed the U23 game against Sunderland in the week and remember Gooners it’s an early 6pm kick off.
