Arsenal

After back-to-back defeat, Arsenal finally made a stunning return by beating Bournemouth. Although the squad that joined the campaign proved effective, Arsene Wenger is expected to make some changes.

David Ospina, Jack Wilshere, Olivier Giroud, Mohamed Elneny, Calum Chambers, Per Mertesacker, Theo Walcott, and Alex Iwobi could all start the game; while Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin are both sidelined to let them recover from injury.

FC Cologne

If Arsenal have a problematic fixture, FC Cologne is relatively worse. They have started the season pretty bad. They are also coming from a heavy defeat after Augsburg beat them in 3-0 match. At the moment, FC Koln is at the bottom of German Bundesliga table.

Prediction

In fact, Arsenal were able to create high scoring in the last two head-to-head with Koln; these matches that are both hosted by FC Koln. And given that the Gunners will host the Europa League knock out stage, they will surely have higher chances to end up as winners.
