Arsenal, to seal top two finish vs PSV

Arsenal and PSV Eindhoven meets after their scheduled match was postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. One more point is needed by Arsenal to be able to secure a spot in the top two of the Europa League. Arsenal have the home advantage as PSV visits them for their match on October 21, 2022, at 1:00 AM (GMT+8). Going into this match, the match-up between these two squads looks equal. This is a treat to the fans as they can expect an exciting yet competitive match between these two teams.

For the six times Arsenal and PSV met, Arsenal have the slight advantage, winning two matches compared to PSV’s one. However, the hosts are winless in their last three meetings against the visitors. But what is good for the hosts is they have a good record in the opener of Europa League. For their five appearances in the Europa League, they won the first three matches of those five appearance. As for the visitors, they do not have a good record in their away games versus English sides, winning only one of 11 matches. PSV only scored two goals for their last 12 matches against Arsenal, which is not an optimistic view.

At the moment, Arsenal is at the top of the league table of the Premier League and they have been impressive so far. This season, their form is exceptional across all competitions, the reason why they are at the top. During their previous meeting with Leeds United, they had a slight edge as they were able to have a 1-0 victory. Going into this match, Arsenal are confident they can win this match. What added to their motivation is the fact that they only need one point to book a top two slot.

Injuries however might affect the game of this squad as they added Gabriel Martinelli to fresh doubt because of an illness. Due to his calf problem, Oleksandr Zinchenko is still in doubt if he will play in this match or not.
