Arsenal FC is expecting to widen their lead at the top of their Europa League table with a victory against Standard Liege. Europe League expert Unai Emery breaks at the final breakdown last season as his Arsenal squad was torn apart at the hands of Chelsea in Azerbaijan, however, their opening game against Eintracht Frankfurt showed that they are determined to compete in the tournament once again. They are victorious on that fixture with 3 – 0 on the road match and also another opportunity to win on the cards here. The host is all winners for the entire four engagements against Standard Liege in Europe acquiring 15 goals in the process. But wait there’s more of it because they also have six wins coming from their last seven Europa League matches, so the beloved fans of the Gunners will be expecting three points on the upcoming fixture. However, one thing is noticeable in the Arsenal squad and that is their defense mechanism and once again this is the proof of their weakest link. The 1 – 1 stalemate at the Old Trafford on the night of Monday given by 11 goals conceded this season, and they have only secured three clean sheets coming from their nine competitive on the road games.

This is not a new phenomenon because Arsenal has conceded in 46 coming from their 67 competitive fixtures since Gunners Boss Unai Emery took control, the inclusion of 14 coming from their 17. As we can notice the major success of Arsenal was directly contributed to the offensive force of Alexander Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. These two aces will worry the visitors on the upcoming game, however, the Belgians are still confident for their attack to give threat to the host. Standard Liege has netted 10 coming from their 11 competitive matches this season and become victorious in 2 – 0 versus Vitoria Guimaraes. The visitors also scored in 10 coming from their last 11 Europa League fixtures and didn’t find the net in just one of their group stage matches last season. They will desire their opportunity of getting on the scoresheet versus an Arsenal squad that has conceded in six coming from their last seven competitive home soil matches.
