Arsenal’s Potential XI For The 2022-23 Season Is Solid, But Can It Qualify For The Champions League?

Will top four finally be a reality this season?

Arsenal’s quest for the top four has been a torturous battle for Gunners fans over the past few seasons. Last season was extra painful — and we’ll all get to see the extra juicy details in Amazon’s All or Nothing series — as the team saw top four slip from its grasp in the final weeks. Will this potential Arsenal starting XI 2022-23 lineup right the wrongs of last season?

Manager Mikel Arteta has some new faces in the Arsenal camp after a few big transfers. How much of an impact will they make is the real the question?

Potential Arsenal starting XI 2022

If you’re confused about the spiffy blonde guy in the midfield, there was a slight glitch with createformation.com’s website. That “Tizian” guy is Oleksandr Zinchenko. 

As Americans, we really wanted to put our guy Matt Turner in at goalkeeper, but deep down we know Aaron Ramsdale will be the starter. In front of him is the same back four from last season. 

Zinchenko was a big $36 million signing this summer for Arsenal. The Ukraine star might have played left back for Manchester City, but reports indicate that Arteta will use him in the midfield. 

If this is the case, then Kieran Tierney will keep his starting spot at left back.

If Zinchenko joins the midfield then he should get a starting role. He has featured in the role for Ukraine and can boss around the middle of the field. In the potential Arsenal starting XI 2022 we created, he takes Granit Xhaka’s spot.

The rest of the midfield is unchanged. A new CAM enters the scene after Arsenal completed a $38.5 million signing for Fábio Vieira from Porto. The 22-year-old was an assist merchant last season with 16 assists.

Gabriel Jesus will spearhead the Gunners’ attack. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaving for Barcelona and Alexandre Lacazette going back to Lyon, it will be up to Gabriel Jesus to bag some goals. The Brazilian forward had 13 goals and 12 assists last season with City and will look to increase those numbers in the 2022-23 campaign.

He’s already off to a flying start in preseason and is one of the best transfers this summer.

His competition for the starting gig will be Eddie Nketiah, who scored 10 goals in 27 appearances for the Gunners last season.

Arteta will have options for the attack with Nicolas Pépé and Emile Smith Rowe also available.

Time will tell if this potential Arsenal starting XI 2022-23 lineup can end the Europa League nightmares.
