Villarreal will be looking to make it back-to-back victories over Young Boys in the Champions League when the two teams lock horns in Group F on Tuesday night.
The Yellow Submarine, who ran out 4-1 winners in the reverse fixture in Switzerland on October 20, are currently second in the section on four points, while Young Boys are bottom on three points.
Villarreal will again be without the services of Gerard Moreno and Juan Foyth on Tuesday night through injury, while Serge Aurier is ineligible to play in the Champions League group stage.
A 3-5-2 formation worked well for Emery’s side in the reverse game with Young Boys, and it would not be a surprise to see the same set up for this match, with Aissa Mandi coming into the back three.
Paco Alcacer, meanwhile, could be selected alongside Arnaut Danjuma in the final third due to Gerard Moreno’s absence, with Dani Parejo, Etienne Capoue and Francis Coquelin featuring in midfield.
As for Young Boys, goalkeeper David von Ballmoos is out for an extended period due to a shoulder injury, meaning that there should be a spot between the sticks for Guillaume Faivre.
The visitors will also be without the services of Cedric Zesiger, Fabian Lustenberger and Jean-Pierre Nsame, but the Swiss outfit did not pick up any fresh concerns in their league game on Saturday.
Young Boys could also line up in a 3-5-2 formation on Tuesday, with Meschack Elia, who scored in the first game against Villarreal, featuring alongside Theoson-Jordan Siebatcheu.
Villarreal possible starting lineup:
Rulli; Mandi, Albiol, P Torres; Pino, Parejo, Capoue, Coquelin, Pedraza; Alcacer, Danjuma
