Arsenal Fans React to Ljungberg’s Team Selection Against Everton

Freddie Ljungberg has decided to give Arsenal’s young guns a chance to shine in his final game as interim head coach with Emile Smith Rowe among those in the starting XI.

With injuries tormenting the side, however, the Swede has been forced to field Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Bukayo Saka as full-backs. They flank Calum Chambers and David Luiz at centre-back.

The double-pivot of Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka returns in midfield but Smith Rowe takes Mesut Ozil’s place as the No.10. and makes his first start in the Premier League.

Arsenal’s front three consists of Reiss Nelson, Gabriel Martinelli and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as Nicolas Pepe has been dropped to the bench.

Sokratis has dropped out of the squad altogether as Tyreece John-Jules has travelled to Goodison Park as the side’s 19th man.

With so many youngsters involved in Ljungberg’s final stand, Arsenal fans are excited to see what can happen but are also unhappy to see Nicolas Pepe drop back to the bench.
