BoyleSports football ambassador and tipster Natalie Sawyer believes the Gunners’ Europa League campaign will be a huge test of their credentials after they suffered their first defeat of the season against Manchester United at the weekend.
The Gunners had won their first five Premier League games before the 3-1 defeat at Old Trafford and begin their European campaign away at Swiss champions FC Zurich on Thursday.
“Manchester United was Arsenal’s first real test and they didn’t come through it,” Sawyer told BoyleSports.
“Now Mikel Arteta is going to be put to the test again because he has to juggle his squad with a European adventure, something they didn’t have to do last season.
“We’re going to see just where they’re at and how good their squad depth is.
“They appear weak in midfield – Oleksandr Zinchenko drifted into the position a lot during the Manchester United game as he used to do for City, so you can see the imprint of Pep Guardiola on Arsenal.
“Arteta will have to utilise his squad as best he can and I’m glad they weren’t held to ransom at the end of the transfer window as often the big clubs are, but Douglas Luiz would have been a good addition.”
