RAN vs ARS Dream11:
Rangers welcome Arsenal at the Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow, Scotland as the two British giants clash in a pre-season friendly on Saturday. Gerrard’s men come into the fixture with a disappointing 1-0 loss to lowly Tranmere Rovers courtesy of a stunning Kieron Morris shot past McGregor at goal. The Scottish side earlier managed to register a slender 1-0 win over Partick Thistle to start their pre-season.
Arsenal on the flip side, continued to show signs of lack of cohesion and tactical applicability, succumbing to a 2-1 loss at Hibernian in the first pre-season friendly. Marin Boyle and Daniel MacKay struck for the Scottish side making it 2-0 before Emile Smith Rowe could only pull back one consolation goal.

GK: Karl Jakob Hein
DEF: James Tavernier, George Edmundson, Nuno Tavares, Pablo Mari
MID: Steven Davis, Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe
FOR: Ryan Kent, Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Folarin Balogun
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Aubameyang will lead Arsenal up front as the primary striker. Aubameyang scored 10 goals and made 3 assists in the previous season and will be elated to improve on his numbers in the new season.
James Tavernier: Tavernier primarily plays as a right-back but also has provided wing support to his team in full-back and winger positions. Tavernier has also been used as a centre-back by Gerrard in the previous season and kept 21 clean sheets.
Steven Davis: Davis is essentially a defensive midfielder but plays a significant role in the build-up as well to crack open spaces in the opposition half. With 89% accurate passes in the previous season, Davis still remains the midfield marshall for the Rangers.
First to Score: Both teams are fairly evenly matched making it a tough call to predict the first scorer.
Clean sheets: Arsenal and Rangers pose lack of quality in the defensive side of things and there is a good chance that both teams will score atleast one goal.
Both the sides are not at the best of forms and are expected to play a toughly contested game that could go either way, making a draw the most likely result on Saturday.
