Bruce Makes One Change In Our Predicted Team For Arsenal



This is the team I think Steve Bruce will name for Sunday’s match against Arsenal. It has just one change from the draw at Liverpool with Callum Wilson coming in for Joelinton.

Steve Bruce is unlikely to make many significant changes in the midst of this current run. So he’ll likely deploy the 5-3-2 system once again with much the same team that snatched a point at Anfield.

Last weekend, Bruce made no changes to the team. It paid off with the unexpected draw against Liverpool. This time around, the only change I can envision is Callum Wilson coming in for Joelinton.

During his press conference on Friday, Bruce said Wilson was ready to start and referenced his explosive runs against Liverpool. While it may be harsh to drop Joelinton, Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin are a lethal front two who should be starting together when fully fit.

Bruce may be forced into another change with Matt Ritchie having suffered a slight calf injury. However, Bruce indicated that the wing-back should be ok and did participate in yesterday’s training session.

With Joe Willock unavailable against his parent club, the tough decision to keep the midfielder on the bench has been taken out of Bruce’s hands for this week. So it’s just the one change with Wilson returning to the starting eleven for what would be the first time in close to three months.

    Bristol Rovers are bottom of league 1 and have been relegated. they were above the relegation zone when Joey Barton took over in February. he has been very critical of the players.

    “There are a few of them in there who are fortunate to be professional footballers. In 12 months time I think there will be a few of them who’ll be very, very fortunate to still be in the professional game.”

    “With the bad run we had it would have been easy for people to go the other way but that’s not what this group of players is about,”

    Good results in spite of Bruce not because of Bruce.

    I actually really enjoy watching games on Amazon when they’re on there. Good to have all the stats to hand. It’ll be interesting to see if they pick up more games in the future.
