Arsenal vs Cologne 3-1 Highlight Download Europa
COLOGNE SUBS: Kessler, Sorensen, Risse, Jojic, Osako, Guirassy, Horn.
COLOGNE (4-1-4-1): Horn; Klunter, Mere, Heintz, Rausch; Lehmann (c); Zoller, Hoger, Hector, Bittencourt; Cordoba.
Peter Stoger is adopting a 4-1-4-1 formation but has made just two alterations for Cologne, as he aims to end their poor start to the season. Jorge Mere and Konstantin Rausch come into the side as Frederik Sorensen and Yuya Osako drop to the bench. Notable names include regular German international Jonas Hector, as Jhon Cordoba prepares to operate in the lone striker role.
ARSENAL SUBS: Macey, Wilshere, Mustafi, Adelaide, Kolasinac, Akpom, Nelson.
ARSENAL (3-4-3): Ospina; Holding, Mertesacker (c), Monreal; Bellerin, Iwobi, Elneny, Maitland-Niles; Walcott, Giroud, Sanchez.
As expected, with Chelsea awaiting on Sunday, Arsene Wenger has rung the changes for Arsenal – nine in all from the team that started the 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth last weekend. Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin are the only survivors, while Alexis Sanchez starts alongside Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott in a three-man attack. Per Mertesacker returns in defence to captain the side as David Ospina keeps goal, and there are also starts for Alex Iwobi, Rob Holding and Ainsley Maitland-Niles. Jack Wilshere and Shkodran Mustafi are part of a very youthful bench.
