Arsenal Vs Orlando City Live Football Soccer July 21, 2022

None of the quintet is believed to be nursing anything serious, but it is difficult to imagine Arteta risking any of them for Wednesday, especially with Tierney and Tomiyasu’s track record in the fitness department. William Saliba could therefore partner Gabriel Magalhaes at the heart of defence once again, and Matt Turner is also in with a chance of another start back in his homeland after Aaron Ramsdale was absent from the Everton win. Arteta also raised eyebrows by switching to a back three for the second half against Everton, but a familiar 4-2-3-1 formation should be fielded from the off here.

Three goals in two games has already seen Jesus endear himself to the Arsenal faithful – not to mention his tribute to Eddie Nketiah’s phone-call celebration – and Arteta’s side are now three for three in a productive pre-season period. Chelsea and Sevilla still lie in wait for the Gunners as they end their exhibition campaign with two daunting challenges, but with 12 goals in their three summer friendlies so far, Arsenal’s youthful firing line are brimming with confidence. Gooners have also celebrated the news of an imminent deal for versatile Manchester City man Oleksandr Zinchenko after Manchester United won the race to sign Lisandro Martinez, with Edu and the rest of the Arsenal hierarchy not resting on their laurels this summer.

Orlando City shot-stopper Mason Stajduhar remains out of contention for the time being with a jaw injury alongside ACL victim Gaston Gonzalez, but Adam Grinwis and Joao Moutinho were both fit enough for places on the bench on Saturday. Pareja may be hesitant to name a full-strength side for a friendly match given what is at stake in MLS at present, but key men such as Pererya and Facundo Torres should both expect to start against Premier League opposition. The forgotten man Alexandre Pato could lead the line for Orlando on Wednesday, as number one Pedro Gallese retains possession of the gloves. As for Arsenal, the Gunners just cannot seem to escape the injury curse, as Emile Smith Rowe, Ben White, Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Fabio Vieira were all forced to miss the win over Everton.

The impact that these games are generating, with the growth of soccer in the region and the next World Cup to be held in North America, is causing the United States to gradually become a region that consumes soccer and competes with other sports such as American Football, Basketball and Baseball. The new and brand new Arsenal signing Gabriel Jesus is the one who will be in charge of scoring goals this season, despite not being a natural center forward, because after the departures of Aubameyang who left for Barcelona and Lacazette who returned to Lyon, he is the only one who starts.
