It's Eindhoven meet Arsenal at Philips Stadium in 5th round of UEFA Europa League on Thursday 27 October.
Needing just a point to seal a first-placed finish in Europa League Group A with a game to spare, Arsenal board a plane to the Netherlands to face PSV Eindhoven on Thursday night.
The Gunners hold a five-point lead over their second-placed Dutch counterparts, who could be left to battle for second place without a satisfactory result here.
Home team: Eindhoven (Last 10 games: 6-1-3 Scored 25 goals and conceded 11 goals)
Although PSV never really got going against Arsenal at their North London headquarters, Xavi Simons in particular showed flashes of his intriguing potential at the Emirates Stadium. Ruud van Nistelrooy would have been relieved to see the Gunners win by just one goal.
In the 70th minute of the game, Granit Xhaka's first right-footed goal for the team separated the two teams. As a result, PSV can only win Group A under exceptional circumstances by defeating Arsenal and Bodo/Glimt in their final two games and hoping Mikel Arteta's team loses to FC Zurich at home on the final matchday.
Van Nistelrooy's team should now be aiming for a spot in the knockout round playoffs since they may secure a second-place finish with a point if Bodo/match Glimt's against Zurich ends in a victory. However, the Dutch powerhouses did not warm up for this game in the best possible way.
However, PSV's formula for success at the Philips Stadion has seen the hosts win five and draw one of their past six in front of their home fans in all tournaments, despite their away day woes carrying over into the Eredivisie when they lost 4-2 to Groningen at the weekend.
The Boeren have also scored in each of their past 10 Europa League games played at their home stadium, but they will need to increase their meager total of just four shots at the Emirates, which was their lowest in a continental encounter since 2016, if they are to surprise everyone.
Noni Madueke, Mauro Junior, and Luuk de Jong were all cleared to travel for PSV ahead to last week's loss to Arsenal. However, the latter still has to improve his fitness and may watch Guus Til continue to lead the line for the time being.
For the visit of the Gunners, Van Nistelrooy is still missing Yorbe Vertessen (muscle), Ismael Saibari (muscle), Kjell Peersman (back), and Olivier Boscagli (knee), although Marco van Ginkel is well following a hamstring injury. Madueke should also not be considered for a start just yet.
After the weekend's defeat, adjustments will undoubtedly be made. Erick Gutierrez and Phillipp Mwene are expected to make a comeback, and the former's inclusion should cause Xavi Simons to move up and force Anwar El Ghazi to the bench.
Away team: Arsenal (Last 10 games: 8-1-1 Scored 19 goals and conceded 8 goals)
It is not unusual for Arsenal to struggle to end games when they are ahead by one goal, and this lack of ruthlessness cost the Gunners dearly when they traveled to Southampton, who held Arteta's team to just one goal before retaliating to win a well-deserved draw.
A tired Arsenal team was undone by a Stuart Armstrong equalizer in the second half, cutting their lead at the top to two points. Xhaka had followed up his goal against PSV with another devastating volley into the roof of the net—again, with his right foot.
That result was likely coming for Arsenal, who can relax knowing they are already certain to place in the top two of Group A and need only draw in the Netherlands to finish first. They also failed to establish their dominance in 1-0 triumphs against Bodo/Glimt and Leeds United.
Even though Arsenal's unbeaten streak in all competitions was extended to nine games with that 1-1 result at St. Mary's, and the North London giants have made the goal in each of their last 16 Europa League away games, there may be cause for concern as the brutal fixture schedule rears its ugly head.
One can only hope that football takes center stage rather than a repeat of the fan disorder that overshadowed last week's Emirates match as Arsenal has failed to win on their last two visits to PSV Eindhoven's field, losing 1-0 in the last 16 of the 2006-07 Champions League after playing to a 1-1 draw in 2004-05.
For Arsenal, Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) and Marquinhos (sickness) missed training on Wednesday, while Mohamed Elneny and Emile Smith Rowe are still out with hamstring and groin problems, respectively.
Matt Turner, Kierney Tierney, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Fabio Vieira, and Rob Holding can still be sure of receiving recalls despite Arteta's comments about how crucial it is for his team to finish first in the group.
Xhaka is one caution away from receiving a European suspension, therefore it could be best for the captain of Switzerland, who could make his 50th Europa League appearance, to receive a warning this week and then serve his suspension in the final group match.
Arsenal 1-0 Eindhoven 21/10/2022 UEFA Europa League
Whether it was the intimidating Emirates atmosphere or fear of committing too many bodies forwards against a free-flowing Arsenal, PSV's attacking prowess was non-existent last week, but it should be a different story at their Philips Stadion fortress.
Given their repeated failures to translate their dominance into goals in recent weeks, we are struggling to back an altered Arsenal side to claim all three points here, but Arteta's men should hang on for the draw they need to seal their spot in the last 16.
