Ghanaian star Thomas Partey impressed on matchday 1 of the Europa League group stages and Arsenal's major summer signing is expected to get a runout against Dundalk.
🧮 Arsenal likely XI
Runarsson; Cedric, Mustafi, Gabriel, Kolasinac; Elneny, Partey, Maitland-Niles; Pépé, Nketiah, Nelson
Partey was an influential presence in the engine room as Arsenal came back from a goal down to beat Rapid Wien 2-1 in Austria. Mikel Arteta is again expected to tinker with his first XI from the Premier League but wholesale changes aren't expected.
🔐 Key stats
- Each of Arsenal’s last three UEL wins has seen them score the decider beyond the hour mark.
- Ten of Arsenal’s 12 all-time UEL home wins have yielded a 2+ goal margin, and nine (90%) of those ten saw them keep a second-half clean sheet.
- Irish outfit Dundalk conceded two or more goals in one half in four of their last five UEL defeats, and are universally considered likelier to concede a +5 handicap advantage than avoid defeat.
