How Arsenal could line up at Rapid Vienna with Thomas Partey set to be handed first start and Eddie Nketiah in attack

how arsenal could line up at rapid vienna with thomas partey set to be handed first start and eddie nketiah in attack

ARSENAL travel to Rapid Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday and Mikel Arteta is likely to ring the changes.

New signing Thomas Partey is expected to be handed his first Gunners start with in-form youngster Eddie Nketiah starting in an attacking role.

Arsenal’s likely lineup against Rapid Vienna

The Gunners narrowly lost 1-0 at Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday and the Spaniard will want to freshen things up for the trip to Austria.

Bernd Leno will likely retain his place in goal as Arteta no doubt wants to kick-off his side’s European campaign with a win.

But the defence could see some new faces in a 5-2-3 formation.



Sead Kolasinac is expected to slot in in place of Kieran Tierney as the left centre-back.

An injury crisis at the back means David Luiz and Gabriel will likely start again alongside the Bosnian with Bukayo Saka retaining his left wing-back spot.

On the opposite flank Ainsley Maitland-Niles could get some game time in place of Hector Bellerin who started at the Etihad.

Partey came off the bench in Manchester to make his debut but he played just seven minutes and managed to pick up a booking.

But Arsenal fans can expect to see the Ghanaian from the start in Thursday’s Group B clash.

Arsenal’s alternative line-up

Alexandre Lacazette – who played just 21 minutes off the bench on Saturday – is set to lead the line with Nketiah replacing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left of the attacking trio.

Arteta could also look to attack the game from the off and start Aubameyang.

And there is also an outside chance sub goalie Rúnar Alex Rúnarsson could get the gloves instead of Leno.

Partey’s midfield partner will depend on how attacking Arteta wants to be.

Dani Ceballos could start although the Spaniard played 90 minutes against Pep Guardiola’s men which could see Mohamed Elneny come back into the team instead.

Reiss Nelson last started for Arsenal in their League Cup win at Leicester on September 23 and can expect another run out replacing Nicolas Pepe and Willian who should be on the bench.

Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo set for reunion with coach who gave him his debut at 16 with Brescia

juventus boss andrea pirlo set for reunion with coach who gave him his debut at 16 with brescia

Andrea Pirlo heads into his first Champions League match in charge of Juventus ready for an emotional reunion with the man who gave him his debut as a rookie teenager 25 years ago. 

Dynamo Kiev coach Mircea Lucescu handed Italian midfield legend Pirlo his first game as a fresh-faced 16-year-old for his hometown club Brescia back in May 1995.

And now the pair are poised to face each other as managers for the first time in Tuesday’s Group G opener in the Ukrainian capital as Europe’s elite competition kicks off for another campaign.

At 75, former Inter Milan, Galatasaray, Besiktas and Shakhtar Donetsk boss Lucescu is the oldest coach in the competition with four decades of experience under his belt, while new Juve gaffer Pirlo is embarking on his debut season as a coach.

Pirlo revealed he is still in contact with the Romanian, who he hails as a ‘maestro’ and one of the most important coaches of his career, and says he is eternally thankful to Lucescu for giving him his break at such a young age.

‘Lucescu was my first coach, he brought me to the first team when I was 15 and I made my debut at 16,’ Pirlo said.

‘We still talk to each other, I will always be grateful to him but it is a good opportunity to challenge him.

‘I had the luck of working with some great coaches. From Lucescu, who was one of my first, at Brescia – he was a maestro – to (Marcello) Lippi, (Carlo) Ancelotti, (Antonio) Conte and (Massimiliano) Allegri. 

‘I had the luck of working with some of the top coaches in the world, and I’m happy I had the chance to work with them. I’ll try to take something from each of them.’ 

Brescia had planned to unleash Pirlo when still a 15-year-old but were told they had to wait until he turned 16 before he could make his top-flight debut. 

It came against Reggiana in May of that year, making him the youngest player in the club’s history to play in the first division.

The brilliant midfielder went on to have a stellar career with Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus, as well as earning 116 caps for Italy and a World Cup winner’s medal in 2006.

Pirlo’s lack of dug-out experience – having only been appointed as Maurizio Sarri’s successor at Juve in August – made him a shock choice to take on one of the most high-profile jobs in world football, but Lucescu said he felt Pirlo had it in him to succeed from an early age.

‘What was he like as a teenager at Brescia? Incredible, mature,’ Lucescu said in his press conference ahead of facing the Serie A champions.

‘Mature like he is now. I remember going to Viareggio to watch a match and I went home in the car with him. We had time to speak for two hours. 

‘I realised that he was a very level-headed guy. As well as being a creative player, he was someone who organised everything, which is yet another skill. 

‘That has helped him a lot to become what he is today, the coach of a wonderful team like Juventus. 

‘He called me a maestro? That makes me proud. I must thank him and I hope he has a great career as a coach.’

The match sees Dynamo, who were Ukrainian Premier League runners-up behind Shakhtar Donetsk last season, enter the group stage of the Champions League for the first time since 2016-17, having been bundled in the qualifying phase for the three previous seasons.

Juve, who have not won the Champions League since 1996, crashed out of last season’s competition in the group of 16 to Lyon, which prompted the club to sack Sarri and opt to bring in the untested Pirlo.

The Frenchman has had his eye on Madrid for a while and former PSG boss Emery says that he had to convince him to stay put when he was in charge of the Ligue 1 club.

Speaking to El Partidazo de COPE, Emery said: “When we were in Paris, Mbappé was very excited to come and play at Real Madrid.

“I didn’t want him to leave and I talked to his father. At the time, the player was very seriously contemplating coming to Madrid.”

SunSport also revealed that Mbappe is so keen on a move to Spain that he reportedly is willing to take a pay cut to work with his mentor Zinedine Zidane.

But he also has a good relationship with Klopp which could lead to an Anfield switch.

Speaking about the Madrid boss he said: “”If you’re a boy and you’re French, your idol is Zidane.”

The respect is mutual as when asked about Mbappe, Zidane also spoke of his ‘love’ for the player.

He said: “You know that I have known [Mbappe] for a long time.

“I am already in love with him, firstly as a person, because he came to do a trial here a long time ago.”

Despite their admiration for each other, Mbappe has also been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool and Manchester United both in the running for his signature.

Liverpool have the edge over United as Mbappe praised Klopp’s management skills after witnessing the Reds domination in the Premier League last season.

He said after their title win: “This season, Liverpool have been a machine in the Premier League.

“To be as ruthless as they have been would come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager.”

He is said to be ‘very flattered’ by Klopp’s interest him after it was revealed that the German had called the player’s father to enquire about his availability.

AS also claim that Klopp had even met Mbappe and his family in 2017 in Monaco.
