Four biggest dangers facing Arsenal against Napoli tonight

Published

on


There is no doubt that Arsenal have been dealt a tough draw in the Europa League quarter-final against Napoli, a team that is the second best outfit in Serie A with a decent sprinkling of top quality players.

Napoli are definitely focussed, they know they cannot win the Italian league, they will qualify for the Champions League next season and so the Europa League represents their best chance of silverware this season.

There are multiple dangers that we will have to face and I have highlighted four such dangers in particular.

Dries Mertens

A top quality player, the Belgium international has scored an impressive 79 goals in 199 appearances for Napoli and has the ability to find a goal out of nothing, he can switch effortlessly from being a striker to a winger and his versatility makes him one to keep a close eye on.

Lorenzo Insigne

The Napoli captain has been passed fit and that is not good news for us, he is very influential, certainly a lot more than our captain has been in recent games, he may not be a prolific goalscorer but he mixes his game up well and is one of the leading players with assists in Serie A.

Jose Callejon

Callejon has the third highest assists in Serie A this season, just behind teammate Mertens and while he is not clinical in front of the goal, if he is given the slightest opportunity he can turn the game suddenly with his eye for a deadly through ball.

Arkadiusz Milik

Napoli’s top scorer in Serie A this season, he has three goals less than Ronaldo and given half a chance he will take it, he needs to be closely guarded or he will punish us, that you can be sure of.

There are other dangers trust me on that and our midfield and defence will have to be alert for the entire 90 minutes but Napoli does have a vulnerable defence, especially in recent weeks and if our forwards do their job it will relieve the pressure on the defence.
