Arsenal vs Sporting CP: prediction, start time, TV, live stream, team news, H2H results, odds

In the fight for the Premier League title, this competition may be seen as something of a distraction by some Arsenal fans, but Mikel Arteta is strongly drawn to the possibility of a league-and-Europe double.

Arsenal vs Sporting CP team news

Eddie Nketiah is a serious doubt for Arsenal who are without Mohamed Elneny.

Arteta will need to decide if Gabriel Jesus is ready for a first start since returning from injury, with some rotation likely and Kieran Tierney, Takehiro Tomiyasu and Emile Smith Rowe looking to play.

Hector Bellerin will miss his Emirates return with a knee injury for Sporting. Goalkeeper Antonio Adan is another doubt with a muscle complaint.

Arsenal vs Sporting CP Prediction

Sporting are set to give Arsenal a game and muted performances in the Cup eliminaries against Brighton and Manchester City earlier in the season should serve as a warning to the Gunners.

They may have to dig deep, but home support should get them across the border.

Arsenal win 2-1 (4-3 on aggregate).
