Arsenal secured a massive Champions League win in Sevilla and the player of the match Gabriel Jesus scored a wonderful goal and assisted the other. Arsenal played a great game in Spain and now take top spot in their Champions League group.
For Arsenal now, a home win over Sevilla this week can give them 9 points in the group and after a 4-0 convincing win over PSV, Arsenal can look to make home advantage count.
Injuries are rising for Arsenal with Partey, Timber, Odegaard and Jesus all expected to miss the game and after a tough and physical game on Saturday at Newcastle, Arsenal will be nursing their wounds and looking to bounce back with a win.
Defensively Arsenal have Saliba and Gabriel fit and with While and Zinchenko they have a good base to go forward, but in front of goal, Arsenal must look to Saka and Martinelli to lighten up the game and deliver the killer blow.
The defeat to Newcastle will be hurting Arsenal as they felt the goal should not have stood and this can give them ammunition to secure a win over Sevilla and then have one foot in the knock out stages.
For Sevilla, the draw specialists, they need to turn these into wins or they will not be qualifying for the next stage. They played well against Arsenal in the game in Spain, but just didn’t have the cutting edge to equalise.
Sevilla were stunned by Arsenal’s first goal as Jesus’ magical turn in the centre of the pitch opened the way for Martinelli to score the opening goal. Jesus’ wonder goal secured Arsenal the win, but Sevilla did fight back and they will be a threat to Arsenal.
Arsenal must defend well and play the game at their pace as if they are not at 100% level then Sevilla have a massive chance to come away with at least a draw.
The group is tightly poised, but Arsenal are well aware they must have home advantage count as they want to qualify as quickly as possible and with a home game against Lens next up, two wins and they will be through as group winners.
This game can have plenty of goals, like the game in Spain and it wouldn’t be a surprise if the samescore line of 2-1 Arsenal is the final result
