Europa League

Arsenal's New Freekick And Penalty Taker Announced Again

Arsenal have finally jumped from the 11th position to the 9th position in the Premier League. They collected a comfortable win at Bramall Lane against Sheffield United. The goals however came in the second half. A brace from Lacazette and a first time goal for Martineli secured the crucial win. Mike Arteta has now turned his eyes to the pending Europa League competition. The 1-1 draw in the first leg means that the Gunners have to work hard and win the game at Slavia Praha. The manager took a bold step and dropped professionalism from the lineup and introduced hardworking players. The injury crisis however has seen them have fewer options for rotation.

Mike Arteta has also been forced to make some changes in terms of setpieces. He has decided to make the changes because of some players he has dropped from regular starters. According to the changes, Willian will be the one taking all the corners either from left side or right side. Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney will step in for him when he is absent. Granit Xhaka is the one who will be taking the long freekicks. He will be assisted by Willian. Both Lacazette, Willian and Aubameyang are mandated to take the short-distance freekicks. The penalty role has been given to Lacazette. Aubameyang will step in for him when he is not present.
